  •  matthew who? (0+ / 0-)

    not the author of the gospel.  while the gospel may have been composed after the epistles, it wouldn't have had jesus quoting paul.

    or do you have a cite i've missed?

    •  Oooops - Jet lag got the worst of me there! (0+ / 0-)

      That passage got stuck in my head because I started looking up Hal Lindsey quotes in the Bible to see how out of contect they were, then I started reading the New Testament front to back.

      That's what comes from being up all night with 7 h jet lag in a hotel room with a Gideon Bible and laptop. Nothing like the good old days of sharing a suite at the Willard with Charlie Sheen and Marion Barry.

      •  hey no prob (0+ / 0-)

        we seem to be the only one on this comments thread anyway. i can hear the crickets chirping...

        if you can scrounge up a copy of the unvarnished new testament (translated by andy gaus) i highly recommend it for your front-to-back read.  no verse numbers though, but that makes it more readable.

        •  I've got a few interesting books (0+ / 0-)

          "The Five Gospels - What did Jesus Really Say?" is nice. The red letter editions are cool. A lot of best stuff is written by rabbis.  As I like to tell my Bible Belt aquaintences - "There is a name for people that really read the Bible - they are called the Jews"
