How the Rule of Faith, the Nomina Sacra, and Numerical Patterns Shape the Canon

by Tomas Bokedal

In Christ the Center, Tomas Bokedal shows how the canon is shaped by numerical patterns of nomina sacra—scribal reverence for divine names. These patterns, which especially revolve around Christ, reveal the devotional and theological preoccupations of the earliest Christians. The rule of faith is not a later development; it is in the very text of Scripture. Christ the Center shows the remarkable interplay between Scripture and theology in the early Christian period.
