I would agree that we need to look at the Old Testament to find the roots of New Testament ideas, but we also need to remember that Jewish apocalyptic thought continued to develop after the books you referenced were written. The idea of a universal resurrection and judgment followed by the destruction of everything bad in a lake of fire didn’t exist when Isaiah, Ezekiel, and these other books were written.
