Chapter Summary

The natural point of departure is K. A. Credner's monograph on OT quotations in Matthew and Justin (1838). Credner noted as a general characteristic of Justin's LXX quotations their hebraizing features; and this lead him to reject the theory that the long LXX quotations in Justin were due to scribes "correcting" Justin's quotations to conform with the standard LXX text of their time. This chapter examines the texts on which Justin himself comments. It discusses the texts which are rendered in two versions, one LXX and one non-LXX, since these instances are especially instructive. The theory propounded is then tested on cases where we can observe Justin working with known sources, i.e. OT quotations in Christian writers before him. In the first two sections the texts are treated in their OT order; in the last section the author follows the order of the respective writings.
