      2) Deuteronomy - 30 MS
      3) Isaiah - 29 MS

      Which writings are most quoted or referred to in the NT ? 1) the Psalms - 68 times
      2) Isaiah - 63 "
      3) Deuteronomy - 39 "

      My conclusion. The same Biblical passages were important to the Essenes and the followers of Jesus, but because Isaiah 53 was used
      by the early Christians as referring to the crucified Jesus, the number of quotations from Isaiah increased.
