    I thought this might make a interesting discussion -- “Does the New Testament Quote Itself?” Or perhaps more specifically, do any authors of the New Testament quote other authors of the New Testament? And, when doing so, do they quote them as inspired scripture?

    Peter, Paul, and John understood their writings as authoritative. See 2 Peter 3:2, 1 Corinthians 14:37, 1 John 4:6, for example. And we do find some evidence that New Testament authors viewed each other’s writings as Scripture.
    Are there other examples where one New Testament writer quotes from another New Testament writer?

    Certainly Peter's words are quoted in Matthew, Mark, Luke, John and Acts of the Apostles. Thus some of the words of Peter are certainly included in scripture. And the words of Paul are found in Acts of the Apostles. Paul's letters are said to contain wisdom "given to him" in 2 Peter 3:15.

    1 Timothy 5:18

    "For the scripture saith, Thou shalt not muzzle the ox that treadeth out the corn. And, The labourer is worthy of his reward"

    The first quote is from Deuteronomy 25:4, "“You shall not muzzle the ox while it is threshing"

    The second, is from "And in the same house remain, eating and drinking such things as they give: for the labourer is worthy of his hire. Go not from house to house"

    Important is the fact, that here Paul calls Luke "Scriptutre", equally to the quote from the OT.

    For many like myself I think James 1:12 is a direct quote from Revelation 2:10. But of course this requires a much earlier date for what many will accept for time of the writing of Revelation.
