A Statistical Study of OT in the New by Logos


One problem.  The Minor Prophets, or known by the NT authors and their contemporaries as The Book of the Twelve Prophets (Cf. Sir 49:10 also), are counted individually by this statistical study done by Logos.  Should they rather be counted as one book, as the NT author likely counted these books?  Maybe my dissertation will alter they was this is perceived. 

Stats are not always as objective as they seem.  A method is behind at least my observation in Logos' study, one that at least implicitly endorses the older literary and/or historical-critical hermeneutic of interpreting the Twelve that prefers to see them as individual books, rather than distinct prophets within a unified book.
