Search Scripture daily!  (Acts 17:11)

This website has been set up to encourage personal Bible discovery by paying attention to the literary structure of Scripture and the flow of thought.  Look out for chiasms in  daily Bible reading – and after that compare with what others have proposed. The website also includes tables on bible echoes.

  1. Hi, sort of new to this.
    I found this structure in 2 Kings 4, not sure if its on this site already…
    The start and end have many similar/contrasting ideas although not in a neat parallel succession.
    The main story follows a chiastic structure that centres on the woman’s absolute FAITH in the “Man of God” despite her circumstances
    Im not sure how the A,B,C system would fit exactly into what I’ve found but hoping there is someone here who can help tidy it up a little…
