The three phenomena all have to do with the practice of early
Greek-speaking Christians, and are discussed in proximity by various
people including C. H. Roberts, T. C. Skeat, H. Gamble, A. Millard and
L. W. Hurtado. Different links between these three phenomena are
considered by different thinkers. "One package" is not quite how I would
describe anyone's approach including mine.
I think the data we have concerning the codex format is inconclusive.
From my view-point, the Nomina Sacra and cipher numbers could have been
used in early Greek Christian writings produced in roll format. I think
we need more data before we can decide whether the codex format was used
from the outset.
