I really like the intertext feature on the bible books explorer, visually its just appealing to me.  But, I can't seem to figure out how to make it show both locations of a citation.  

For example, if select Romans and narrow my search criteria to citation only, I get 66 results. If I change the view to grid mode in the search bar, I can count easily enough that 19 of those citations are from Isaiah, but it's not quick to see where in Romans Paul cited each of those verses.  Clicking on Isaiah will tell me which verses in Roman, but still doesn't show both places together for quick reference.   

This seems like a function the Bible books explorer would have, but i can't figure out how to show that.  I would greatly appreciate any input.  Thanks!

It isn't a one-to-one relationship  e.g. Ro 3:15-17 is cited from Is 59:7-8 when you consult the bible via the Search results (each verse is listed separately in the Search results). So it would be very difficult to have a graph show that relationship, especially as Is 59:7,8 could be cited by other passages in Romans.

That function is usually handled by multi-level datamining software. The Bible Book Explorer is intended as a high level overview not a datamining detail. The data you want is available via a search.

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