    Scriptures--yes. 2 Timothy 3:16-17 talks about all Scripture being inspired by God. I believe, that even though the Canon of the Bible was not completed when Paul wrote those words, that passage refers to what we have as the Bible now.

    The Hebrew people were extreemly careful about how they passed the scriptures down from generation to generation, and they were very exact about the accuracy. This shows up when comparing scrolls from different ages against each other. There is virtually no difference among the documents.

    The Scribes and Pharisees wrote lots of supplemental things to the Scripture, which Jesus declaimed; it came to the point where they were adding to God's Word, rather than simply explaining it, as they should have been doing. The Torah was inviolate; the Talmud was the verbal, then written expansion on the Torah.

    There are a number of times when Jesus referred to some of the sayings that had been passed down from generation to generation, today we would call them proverbs, not meaning the book of the Bible that follows Psalms. He also referred to things in the Talmud. Those are the only things I can think of that he referred to that are not part of the Bible. Were you thinking of something else?
