If you turn to Mark 7:6–7 you will find Jesus quoting from the Septuagint, which is what Mr. Gipp refers to as the Alexandrian manuscrips. This is not an isolated incident.

In FACT, the New Testament quotes from the Septuagint 340 times, but from the Masoric (Antiochean) text only 33 times. The Septuagint was almost universally used by the Jews of the 1st century, including the early Christians.

You can find these quotations in G. Archer and G. C. Chirichigno, Old Testament Quotations in the New Testament: A Complete Survey. Archer and Chirichigno are protestant authors.
