Chapter Summary

Modern interpreters have made a variety of ad hoc claims about what is of "Jewish" origin and what may be a "Christian" interpolation or addition or revision. This chapter seeks to determine whether careful and comprehensive analysis of such materials may reveal any patterns or produce any insights that will be useful for evaluating such claims and for providing a more secure basis from which to proceed in future discussions. Jewish Greek scriptures provide an excellent body of materials on which to attempt such analysis. Most of the scriptural passages in which Christian ideas about Jesus allegedly played a formative role are found in the Psalms. New Testament literature abounds with quotations from Jewish scriptures (and/or closely related material), many of which deviate in some way form the majority of preserved Greek MSS of Jewish scriptures.

Keywords: Christian ideas; Jewish Greek scriptures; new testament literature; Psalms
