Martin Hengel on the Scriptures of the Earliest Christians

Martin Hengel says that these psalms are messianic:  2, 8, 22, 45, 69, 89, 118, etc.  [implying that the ones enumerated here are just a sampling].

He also says, “Alongside Isaiah, [Psalms] is the most important Christian scripture in the 1st and 2nd centuries. Only in the second half of the second century did [the gospels overtake them].”
