Which books in the Old testament would Jesus have likely called his Bible?

Are there some books that he may have read that we no longer recognize?

Thanks,

I think he referenced just about every book in the OT. Nothing outside the canon though, afaik.

You realize I hope that there were no books at that time, only parchment scrolls? These would have been only accessible to scholars and, for the religious texts you are talking about, to the Jewish priests. If Jesus existed, which is doubtful, and he really was a carpenter, then it is doubtful he would have read anything. People in his position could neither read nor write. That's not to say he might have heard things. However, most of the alleged words of Jesus were placed in in his mouth by the anonymous authors of the gospels (much later).
