James W Barker. "Reconstruction of Kaige-Quinta Zechariah 9,9" Zeitschrift für die Alttestamentliche Wissenschaft Vol. 126 Iss. 4 (2014) p. 584 - 588 ISSN: 1613-0103.


Some of the non-LXX quotations of the Dodekapropheton in Justin Martyr’s Dialogue with Trypho match the kaige recension exactly. On that basis, the kaige has long been presumed the source behind Justin’s quotation of Zach 9,9 in Dial.53,3. This note clarifies that in Dial. 53,3 Justin was actually conflating the Old Greek and the kaige. By removing Justin’s redactions, the reconstructed kaige Zach 9,9 is identical to Origen’s quinta.
