      Jeffery,

      I would add that the Josephus' account (Antiq.7.9.2ff. (197ff)) further
      supports your contention. But even if the book itself didn't exist then
      there is evidence here that the relevant stories were known.

      Further, NA26 sees numbers of NT citations of Samuel (1 Sam 12.22 in Rom
      11.22; 2 Sam 5.2 in Mt 2.6; 2 Sam 7.8 in 2 Cor 6.18; 2 Sam 7.14 in 2 Cor
      6.18; Heb 1.5; Rev 21.7; and 2 Sam 22.50 in Rev 15.9) plus around 50-60
      allusions. Given that several of these texts are Pauline and therefore
      pre-Markan, it seems that all this would suggest that Ted's appeal to Sam
      (whatever one might think of the rest of his theory) is reasonably
      well-supported.
