Let There Be Light – Genesis 1:3

“Let there be light” must be one of the most famous quotes from the Bible. It’s really exciting for us to have reached what may be our first major milestone in the IKB. We hope you are looking forward to seeing your favorite bible quote IKB style.

Let there be light
Genesis 1:3 (NIV) And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light.

In this verse, we see the return of the pictogram for God. He speaks, saying that famous quote. The utterance is show here as a text bubble, which we think is relatively universally understood among humans.

We see the starburst pictogram (divine creation) combined with a new addition. The lightbulb pictogram indicates light. The contents of the utterance is then repeated, and a “+” sign is used to indicate that this is not mere juxtaposition, but that the act and the occurrence are connected.

We are also thinking of creating a pictogram glossary. We hope that our IKB verses are readily understandable. That said, it may be helpful for uses to be able to look up the intended meanings of each image.

We are also still exploring how to best present the IKB on this website. We’d like to be able to present multiple translations, and not just the New International Version (NIV) as we currently do. It’s important to us that the quality of the presentation matches the quality of the content we provide. Let us know your thoughts in a comment, or tweet at us!
