Periodic Table of the Bible
The Bible periodic table is similar to the periodic table of elements in design. There are color-coded columns and rows – each representing various books of the Bible.
If you aren’t a science nerd, don’t worry! This periodic table doesn’t represent chemical elements!
Instead of properties such as alkalinity and such, they are organized by Old Testament and New Testament, as well as the different organizational categories.
As for what information you put in the different element blocks, you can go very detailed (for older kids and adults) or keep it simple (for younger kids).
Each category would equate to an element group and all the books in that particular category would be the same color on the chart.
Ideally, you would have Old Testament books on the left and New Testament books on the right.
For the element symbols, you can use an abbreviation of the actual book name. This makes it look similar to the scientific periodic table which also has abbreviations.
You can also add in things like the date written and the author of the book. These can easily be added where the regular periodic table has the atomic number, atomic weight, and/or electron configuration.
