What in your opinion is the significance of the use of OT apocrypha and pseudepigrapha in the NT? Apocrypha: Matthew 22:23-33 is a very clear allusion to Tobit 3:7-17. Luke 18:1-8 alludes to Ecclesiasticus 35:13-15. Romans 5:12 closely alludes to Wisdom 2:24. Pseudepigrapha: II Timothy 3:8 cites Jannes and Jambres. Hebrews 11:37 refers to The Martyrdom of Isaiah. Jude 8 cites The Assumption of Moses. Jude 14-15 quotes The Book of Enoch directly. Comments or reflections? What does this mean?
