Bible Structures are evidence of the Divine Revelation and Inspiration of the Bible. There were many writers but the same Author, who is God. There is complementary information and also complementary structures that were not deliberately preconceived by the writers. Structures are the Symmetrical Exhibition of God’s Word by repetition of subjects that reappear, either in Alternation (i.e. A-A-B-B or A-B-C-A-B-C), or Introversion (i.e. A-B-C-C-B-A or A-B-C-D-C-B-A), or in multiple combinations of both. This is the Correspondence of words or expressions, which may be similar or opposite.
Bible Structures have a perfect design. Its telescopic structure gives us a broad picture of the word of God from Genesis to Revelation and can be further expanded by dividing and subdividing chapters, paragraphs, verses, sentences, and even in words. These words can be seen as part of a wonderful design, giving us a microscopic structure of its richness in details (and are a clarifying help in translation), and showing us that while the works of the Lord are great and perfect, the "Word” of the Lord is the greatest of His works, and is also perfect (Psalm 138.2 and Psalm 19.7).
