A Few More Thoughts On Scripture

Last week I posted a few of my own thoughts on the theme of the Bible.  Earlier this week I found a quote from Walt Kaiser on this same subject that I think is quite helpful.

Kaiser described what he called the “canonical center” of the Bible in this way:

It is God’s word of blessing (to use the word especially prominentin the pre-Abrahamic materials) or promise (to use the New Testament word which summarizes the content of the Old Testament) to be Israel’s God and to do something for Israel and through them something for all the nations on the face of earth.
