The Septuagint (Deuterocanonicals, or erroneously called 'Apocrypha' by Protestants), proved in the New Testament

Please also read: "St. Augustine on the Apostolicity of Scripture"



Jesus Christ and the Apostles quoted often from the Old Testament Books discarded by the heretical Protestant ‘reformers’. These books, the deuterocanonicals, are falsely called ‘Apocrypha’ by the Protestants.

As this chapter will show, God clearly wants these books to be in the Bible. We should follow the example of God and the Apostles and use the same texts they quoted from, these texts, which further prove the firm basis in Scripture of all doctrine of the Catholic religion, which alone is the true religion, against which the principalities and powers fight in vain, as also the heretics, who are their witless slaves (until they convert to the true Faith, the Catholic Faith, founded by Jesus Christ).

Apocalypse 22:19: “And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life.”

Note: Protestants know Apocalypse as Revelation.

To demonstrate that the Apostles recognized these books, here is a short list of quotes from the New Testament, followed by the quotes from the corresponding Old Testament deuterocanonical books of the Septuagint.

St. Matthew 6:19: “Lay not up to yourselves treasures on earth: where the rust, and moth consume, and where thieves break through and steal.”

Ecclesiasticus 29:14: “Place thy treasure in the commandments of the most High, and it shall bring thee more profit than gold.”

~ ~ ~ ~

St. Matthew 9:36: “And seeing the multitudes, he had compassion on them: because they were distressed, and lying like sheep that have no shepherd.”

Judith 11:15: “And thou shalt have all the people of Israel, as sheep that have no shepherd.”

~ ~ ~ ~

Ephesians 6:14: “Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of justice.”

Wisdom 5:19: “He will put on justice as a breastplate, and will take true judgment instead of a helmet.”

~ ~ ~ ~

Ephesians 1:17: “That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and of revelation, in the knowledge of him.”

Wisdom 7:7: “Wherefore I wished, and understanding was given me: and I called upon God, and the spirit of wisdom came upon me.”

~ ~ ~ ~

St. Matthew 7:16: “By their fruits you shall know them. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?”

Ecclesiasticus 27:7: “Be the dressing of a tree sheweth the fruit thereof, so a word out of the thought of the heart of man.”

~ ~ ~ ~

Romans 9:21: “Or hath not the potter power over the clay, of the same lump, to make one vessel unto honour, and another unto dishonour?”

Wisdom 15:7: “The potter also tempering soft earth, with labour fashioneth every vessel for our service, and of the same clay he maketh both vessels that are for clean uses, and likewise such as serve to the contrary.”

~ ~ ~ ~

St. Matthew 7:12: “All things therefore whatsoever you would that men should do to you, do you also to them.”

Tobias 4:16: “See thou never do to another what thou wouldst hate to have done to thee by another.”

~ ~ ~ ~

St. Matthew 11:25: “At that time Jesus answered and said: I confess to thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth.”

Judith 6:15: “Saying: O Lord God of heaven and earth, behold their pride, and look on our low condition, and have regard to the face of thy saints.”

~ ~ ~ ~

St. Matthew 12:42: “Because she came from the ends of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon.”

Note: Jesus Christ refers to the wisdom of Solomon, but the Old Testament Book of Wisdom (written by Solomon) has been discarded by the heretics.

~ ~ ~ ~

2 Timothy 4:8: “As to the rest, there is laid up for me a crown of justice, which the Lord the just judge will render to me in that day.”

Wisdom 5:17: “Therefore shall they receive a kingdom of glory, and a crown of beauty at the hand of the Lord.”

~ ~ ~ ~

St. Matthew 22:25: “Now there were with us seven brethren: and the first having married a wife, died; and not having issue, left his wife to his brother.”

St. Mark 12:20: “Now there were seven brethren; and the first took a wife, and died leaving no issue.”

St. Luke 20:29: “There were therefore seven brethren: and the first took a wife, and died without children.”

Tobias 3:8: “Because she had been given to seven husbands, and a devil named Asmodeus had killed them.”

Tobias 7:11: “Now when Raguel heard this he was afraid, knowing what had happened to those seven husbands.”

Note: St. Matthew, St. Mark, and St. Luke verify the canonicity of Tobias by their references to Tobias Chapters 3 and 7… so why do the heretics reject this book?

~ ~ ~ ~

St. Matthew 24:15: “When therefore you shall see the abomination of desolation, which was spoken of by Daniel the prophet.”

1 Machabees 1:57: “On the fifteenth day of the month Casleu, in the hundred and forty-fifth year, king Antiochus set up the abominable idol of desolation upon the altar of God.”

Note: Jesus Christ, using the same language as Machabees, describes a desolating sacrilege in the Holy Place.

~ ~ ~ ~

St. Matthew 27:43: “He trusted in God; let him now deliver him if he will have him; for he said: I am the Son of God.”

Wisdom 2:18: “For if he be the true son of God, he will defend him, and will deliver him from the hands of his enemies.”

Note: Precise prophesy of Good Friday, in Wisdom Chapter 2… a book rejected by the heretics.

~ ~ ~ ~

Saint Matthew 12:42: “Because she came from the ends of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon, and behold a greater than Solomon here.”

Note: Jesus Christ speaking of the wisdom of Solomon, but the heretics threw the Book of Wisdom by Solomon out of their books of lies which they call "bibles".

Wisdom 2:16-20: “We are esteemed by him as triflers, and he abstaineth from our ways as from filthiness, and he preferreth the latter end of the just, and glorieth that he hath God for his father. Let us see then if his words be true, and let us prove what shall happen to him, and we shall know what his end shall be. For if he be the true son of God, he will defend him, and will deliver him from the hands of his enemies. Let us examine him by outrages and tortures, that we may know his meekness and try his patience. Let us condemn him to a most shameful death: for there shall be respect had unto him by his words.

Note: King Solomon with an exact prophesy of Good Friday, in a book rejected by the heretics. The events of Good Friday testify that the Book of Wisdom should logically be part of the Canon (list of Books in the Bible).

St. Mark 4:5: “And other some fell upon stony ground, where it had not much earth.”

Ecclesiasticus 40:15: “The offspring of the ungodly shall not bring forth many branches, and make a noise as unclean roots upon the top of a rock.”

1 Corinthians 15:29: “Otherwise what shall they do that are baptized for the dead, if the dead rise not again at all? why are they then baptized for them?”

2 Machabees 12:43-44: “Silver to Jerusalem for sacrifice to be offered for the sins of the dead, thinking well and religiously concerning the resurrection, (For if he had not hoped that they that were slain should rise again, it would have seemed superfluous and vain to pray for the dead,).

~ ~ ~ ~

St. Matthew 16:18: “And I say to thee: That thou art Peter; and upon this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.”
