When using the Compare tool and shifting between 2D and 3D views the results keep changing.

For the Passage John 3:16-20 notice how the results for the same passage keep varying.

Also, is it possible to get all the Bibles as part of this tool? I own more than the 4 shown.  A Legend would also help to understand more of what we are seeing on the graph.

I can't explain the variations, but Compare should use your top 5 prioritized English bibles (no more!).

It's a very old tool, dating back at least 15 years, before Logos 4.

Thanks for clarifying that - it was my first time stumbling on that tool (still learning all the features of Logos/Verbum!).  

Of course, with the variations and lack of a legend it doesn't seem like this tool is either A) fully developed B) trustworthy to use in its present state.

I definitely could see value in it - would love to hear from FL what their plans are (if any) for this tool and why the variations are there.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Streamgraph provides links to the explanatory material.

The somewhat out of date https://topics.logos.com/Logos$2fVerbum_dataset_and_visualization_information leads you to the above link

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."

There is no significance to the exact position of the dots. The further apart any two dots are, the more difference there is between them.

You can add additional Bibles by typing a comma separated list of Bible abbreviations in place of "Top Bibles".
