Examining text data in this quantitative way can help you find stories to tell in your data. The fact that "ephesian" is a popular word is good to know, but combine that with the 1 use in the top 40 bigrams, and the 2 uses in the top 40 trigrams, to understand the context of how it is used. With that richer understanding of the context, you can sketch out a picture of why "ephesian" is so important in your text.
