In the Beginning Was the Wordle...

Another Gospel of John Wordle from wordle.net.

In Wordle, the size of a word represents how often it occurs. Other details (font, color, layout) are randomly organized by the Wordle program.

To make this Wordle, I dumped the full text of John (in the NASB) into the Wordle website. To make sure that words like "see" and "saw" were not listed separately, I did a "find and replace" to put the most common verbs in John in the present tense.

What I like about this Wordle is that it displays what is important in the Gospel of John. Look at the prominent people: Jesus, Father, disciple, world, Jews, man. Look at the main actions: come, believe, know, see, give, go.
