I love this interactive!  Ever since I discovered it I have probably looked at it daily.  I do have some issues with it though.  For example, when I scroll down to look at People (NT) and choose 'Mary (mother of Jesus)' I get 17 results.  Below is a screenshot of three of the results.  Mary is mentioned in Matthew 2:11 but the OT sources seem to be more about the gifts of the 3Kings/wise men/magi instead of about Mary.

Also...I was hoping to find Luke 1:43 to go along with 2Sam 6:9 and Luke 1:44 paired with 2Sam 6:16 but didn't.  I do admit I may be confused with what is an allusion, echo, citation, and quote.  So, I guess my question is - is the NT use of the OT interactive still evolving, being worked on and updated periodically?

This is an awesome tool.  Thanks Faithlife and Verbum for it.

If you'd like to find out more, it's worth clicking "About" at the top of the panel. At the bottom of the "About" section it tells you what the source of the data is:

So I suspect the resource won't be added to in the future as it's based on a specific dataset. 

I'm assuming here that the Interactive in Verbum is the same as the Logos one: I'd be surprised if it isn't.

Greg,

Thanks for the response and I suspect you are correct.  It is still a great tool. 

BTW, I downloaded your visual filter from the other thread on the NT use of the OT.  Many thanks and blessings.
