  1. I appreciated your site. I too believe chiasms are remarkable and even at times help to interpret. I am newer to this than you, but I have been putting a collection together on perrydox.com under the tag “chiasm.” Feel free to check it out and critique when you see a better way.

  2. Currently I am teaching an inductive Bible Study Course. A couple weeks ago we looked at this site with great interest and found a whole lot of fun. In class this last week, we logged on together and saw that we could click on a book name and see a list of references for chiasms. This let the students try their hand at figuring it out before actually viewing what was posted. Today however, one of my students notice the change of format. It was better before this change in formatting.

  3. There is an alternative way to punctuate John 7:37-38 and when done so it forms a nice chiasm. I also include v.39:
    A – (37) On the last day of the feast, the great day, Jesus stood up and cried out,
    B – “If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me.
    B’ – And drink (38) Whoever believes in Me.
    A’ – As the Scripture has said, ‘Out of His (i.e., Jesus) heart will flow rivers of living water.’”

    A – (39) Now this He said
    B – about the Spirit,
    C – whom those who believed in him were to receive,
    B’ – for as yet the Spirit had not been given,
    A’ – because Jesus was not yet glorified.
