Quoting the Deuterocanonical Books

Nicholas Hardesty is at it again at his blog Phatcatholic Apologetics. I interacted a little with Nick on the Phatmass Phorum some time ago and have found him to be both knowledgeable and fervent in his pursuit of the True Faith.

He has done a bit of follow-up work on a paper Jimmy Akin posted some time ago dispelling the notion that some Protestants have that Chirst and the Apostles never quoted from the Deuterocanonical books of the Old Testament. While Jimmy's paper is more exhaustive, Nicholas's comparison is focused on those few passages in the gospels that are clearly the same in theme, terminology, or imagery. He also explains why the assertion that "quotation equals canonicity" is a fallacious approach to determining canonicity.

Way to go, Mr. Hardesty!
