Scripture is a beautiful mosaic of Christ.

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 a remarkable interplay between Scripture and theology.

Tomas Bokedal (ThD, Lund University) is associate professor in New Testament at NLA University College in Bergen, Norway, and lecturer in New Testament at the University of Aberdeen in Scotland.
