1 Peter's "extraordinary dependence" on the OT

Commenting on the "extraordinary dependence on the OT" in 1 Peter:
Few early Christian documents incorporate as much of [OT] material in proportion with their size . . . Hence the significance of the OT for the letter's interpretation seems guaranteed.
—W. L. Schutter, Hermeneutic and Composition in 1 Peter, 3.
