The New Testament Quoting the Old Testament Part 4

Some people don’t realize how often the Old Testament is quoted in the New Testament. I found this list on the internet and decided to write out the actual scriptures so you can read them for yourself. There are over 200 quotes, but I am only listing a few at a time. Since beginning this list I have found several scriptures not lining up. I am glad I didn’t just post a list of scriptures without actually going through them like I am now by writing each of them out.

Gather Little, Gather Much

But when they put it in an ‘omer-measure, whoever had gathered much had no excess; and whoever had gathered little had no shortage; nevertheless each person had gathered according to his appetite. Exodus 16:18

It is as the Tanakh says, “He who gathered much had nothing extra, and he who gathered little had nothing lacking.” 2 Corinthians 8:15

A Kingdom of Priests

And you will be a kingdom of cohanim (priests) for me, a nation set apart. These are the words you are to speak to the people of Israel. Exodus 19:6

But you are a chosen people, the King’s cohanim, a holy nation, a people for God to possess! Why? In order for you to declare the praises of the One who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. 1 Peter 2:9

Stoned to Death

You are to set limits for the people all around; and say, ‘Be careful not to go up on the mountain or even touch its base; whoever touches the mountain will surely be put to death. No hand is to touch him; for he must be stoned or shot by arrows; neither animal nor human will be allowed to live.’ When the shofar sounds, they may go up on the mountain.” Exodus 19:12-13

for they couldn’t bear what was being commanded them, “If even an animal touches the mountain, it is to be stoned to death”; Hebrews 12:20

Don’t Covet or Murder

Honor your father and mother, so that you may live long in the land which ADONAI your God is giving you. Do not murder. Do not commit adultery. Do not steal. Do not give false evidence against your neighbor. Do not covet your neighbor’s house; do not covet your neighbor’s wife, his male or female slave, his ox, his donkey or anything that belongs to your neighbor. Exodus 20:12-17

The man asked him, “Which ones?” and Yeshua said, “Don’t murder, don’t commit adultery, don’t steal, don’t give false testimony honor father and mother and love your neighbor as yourself.” Matthew 19:18-19

You have heard that our fathers were told, ‘Do not murder,’ l and that anyone who commits murder will be subject to judgment. You have heard that our fathers were told, `Do not commit adultery.’ Matthew 5:21, 27

Therefore, whoever resists the authorities is resisting what God has instituted; and those who resist will bring judgment on themselves. For the commandments, Don’t commit adultery, Don’t murder. Don’t steal. Don’t covet and any others are summed up in this one rule: “Love your neighbor as yourself. Romans 13:2, 9

Therefore, what are we to say? That the Torah is sinful? Heaven forbid! Rather, the function of the Torah was that without it, I would not have known what sin is. For example, I would not have become conscious of what greed is if the Torah had not said, “Thou shalt not covet.” Romans 7:7

Don’t Curse Your Parents

Whoever curses his father or mother must be put to death. Exodus 21:17

For God said, ‘Honor your father and mother,’ and ‘Anyone who curses his father or mother must be put to death.’ Matthew 15:4

For Moshe said, ‘Honor your father and your mother,’ and ‘Anyone who curses his father or mother must be put to death.’ Mark 7:10

Eye for Eye

Eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot Exodus 21:24

You have heard that our fathers were told, ‘Eye for eye and tooth for tooth.’ Matthew 5:38

Don’t Curse Leader

You are not to curse God, and you are not to curse a leader of your people. Exodus 22:28

Sha’ul said, “I didn’t know, brothers, that he was the cohen hagadol (high priest); for it says in the Torah, ‘You are not to speak disparagingly of a ruler of your people.'” Acts 23:5

Blood of Covenant

Moshe took the blood, sprinkled it on the people and said, “This is the blood of the covenant which ADONAI has made with you in accordance with all these words.” Exodus 24:8

and he said, “This is the blood of the covenant which God has ordained for you.” Hebrews 9:20

According to the Pattern

See that you make them according to the design being shown you on the mountain. Exodus 25:40

But what they are serving is only a copy and shadow of the heavenly original; for when Moshe was about to erect the Tent, God warned him, “See to it that you make everything according to the pattern you were shown on the mountain.” Hebrews 8:5

Make Us Gods

When the people saw that Moshe was taking a long time to come down from the mountain, they gathered around Aharon and said to him, “Get busy; and make us gods to go ahead of us; because this Moshe, the man that brought us up from the land of Egypt – we don’t know what has become of him.” Exodus 32:1

Saying to Aharon, ‘Make us some gods to lead us; because this Moshe, who led us out of Egypt – we don’t know what has become of him.’ Acts 7:40

1 thought on “The New Testament Quoting the Old Testament Part 4”

  1. I’m totally lkooing forward to this. There are too many renegade scholars nowadays that want to remold Jesus into anything from a magician to a guru to a cynic philosopher. Admitting the obvious (that Yeshua and his Jewish followers worshipped God and loved Torah, and many miracles happened) would only strengthen people’s faith, after all.
