Apocryphal and Pseudepigraphical Allusions in the New Testament

I get steady hits for blogposts about the apocrypha. So here for the interested is the link to Kevin Edgecomb‘s collection of apocryphal and pseudepigraphical allusions found in the New Testament, as taken from the appendix lists in the NA27 and UBS4 Greek New Testaments. As Kevin himself admits, the validity of many of the references is questionable (I’m a good Protestant, but it’s also undeniably true that these allusions are a complicated subject). Kevin has done us all the great service of compiling pretty much the complete set in English, taking verses from the NRSVA and Pseudepigraha from the collection edited by Charlesworth.

A quick “select all” and font reduction will give you something like a fifty-five page file for your amusement and edification, which should keep you busy for quite a while.

Thanks to Kevin Edgecomb, who obviously takes “idle hands are the devil’s playground” seriously. Lots more good stuff to be found on his site.
