Wisdom 2.13 He boasteth that he hath the knowledge of God, and calleth himself the son of God.

St. Matthew 27.43 ... for he said: I am the Son of God.

Wisdom 2.14 He is become a censurer of our thoughts.

St. Matthew 9.4 And Jesus seeing their thoughts, said: Why do you think evil in your hearts?

Wisdom 2.16 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.

St. John 8.54 Jesus answered: If I glorify myself, my glory is nothing. It is my Father that glorifieth me, of whom you say that he is your 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.

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.

2 Maccabees 7 is referred to by:

Hebrews 11.35 Women received their dead raised to life again. But others were racked, not accepting deliverance, that they might find a better resurrection.

etc., etc.

Yes, there are analogous thoughts expressed in the Apocrypha and the NT. They were both from the Jews. But you still don’t have a single citation where Jesus quotes the Apocrypha.

You could pull a thousand quotes from various heathen writers, and find analogous statements in the NT...but that wouldn’t make the heathen writings scripture. Analogous thoughts are not quotes.

Compare what you quoted to:

Mat 12:3 He said to them, “Have you not read what David did when he was hungry, and those who were with him:

Mat 12:5 “Or have you not read in the Law how on the Sabbath the priests in the temple profane the Sabbath and are guiltless?

Mat 19:4 He answered, “Have you not read that he who created them from the beginning made them male and female,

Mat 21:16 and they said to him, “Do you hear what these are saying?” And Jesus said to them, “Yes; have you never read, ‘Out of the mouth of infants and nursing babies you have prepared praise’?”

Mat 21:42 Jesus said to them, “Have you never read in the Scriptures: ‘The stone that the builders rejected has become the cornerstone; this was the Lord’s doing, and it is marvelous in our eyes’?

Mat 21:13 He said to them, “It is written, ‘My house shall be called a house of prayer,’ but you make it a den of robbers.”

Mar 1:2 As it is written in Isaiah the prophet, “Behold, I send my messenger before your face, who will prepare your way,

Mar 7:6 And he said to them, “Well did Isaiah prophesy of you hypocrites, as it is written, ‘This people honors me with their lips, but their heart is far from me;
