The New Testament Quoting the Old Testament Part 5

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.

I Will Have Mercy

He replied, “I will cause all my goodness to pass before you, and in your presence I will pronounce the name of ADONAI. Moreover, I show favor to whomever I will, and I display mercy to whomever I will.” Exodus 33:19

For to Moshe he says, “I will have mercy on whom I have mercy, and I will pity whom I pity.” Romans 9:15

Don’t Drink Wine

Don’t drink any wine or other intoxicating liquor, neither you nor your sons with you, when you enter the tent of meeting, so that you will not die. This is to be a permanent regulation through all your generations… Leviticus 10:9

…for he will be great in the sight of ADONAI. He is never to drink wine or other liquor, and he will be filled with the Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit) even from his mother’s womb. Luke 1:15

Pigeons Sacrifice

If she can’t afford a lamb, she is to take two doves or two young pigeons, the one for a burnt offering and the other for a sin offering; the cohen (priest) will make atonement for her, and she will be clean. Leviticus 12:8

…and also to offer a sacrifice of a pair of doves or two young pigeons, as required by the Torah of ADONAI. Luke 2:24

Life in Torah

You are to observe my laws and rulings; if a person does them, he will have life through them; I am ADONAI. Leviticus 18:5

For Moshe writes about the righteousness grounded in the Torah that the person who does these things will attain life through them. Romans 10:5

Furthermore, legalism is not based on trusting and being faithful, but on [a misuse of] the text that says, “Anyone who does these things will attain life through them.” Galatians 3:12

I, YHVH, Am Holy

Speak to the entire community of Israel; tell them, ‘You people are to be holy because I, ADONAI your God, am holy.’ Leviticus 19:2

…since the Tanakh says, “You are to be holy because I am holy.” 1 Peter 1:16

Keep Your Oath

Do not swear by my name falsely, which would be profaning the name of your God; I am ADONAI. Keep my Shabbats, and revere my sanctuary; I am ADONAI. Leviticus 19:12, 30

Again, you have heard that our fathers were told, ‘Do not break your oath,’ and ‘Keep your vows to ADONAI.’ Matthew 5:33

Love Your Neighbor

Don’t take vengeance on or bear a grudge against any of your people; rather, love your neighbor as yourself; I am ADONAI. Leviticus 19:18

…and that loving him with all one’s heart, understanding and strength, and loving one’s neighbor as oneself, mean more than all the burnt offerings and sacrifices. Mark 12:33

You have heard that our fathers were told, ‘Love your neighbors — and hate your enemy.’ Matthew 5:43

…honor father and mother and love your neighbor as yourself. Matthew 19:19

And a second is similar to it, ‘You are to love your neighbor as yourself.’ Matthew 22:39

For the whole of the Torah is summed up in this one sentence: “Love your neighbor as yourself.” Galatians 5:14

The second is this: ‘You are to love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other mitzvah (command) greater than these. Mark 12:31

If you truly attain the goal of Kingdom Torah, in conformity with the passage that says, “Love your neighbor as yourself,” you are doing well. James 2:8

YHVH Raises a Prophet

ADONAI will raise up for you a prophet like me from among yourselves, from your own kinsmen. You are to pay attention to him…I will raise up for them a prophet like you from among their kinsmen. I will put my words in his mouth, and he will tell them everything I order him.  Whoever doesn’t listen to my words, which he will speak in my name, will have to account for himself to me. Deuteronomy 18:15, 18-19

For Moshe himself said, ‘ADONAI will raise up for you a prophet like me from among your brothers. You are to listen to everything he tells you. Everyone who fails to listen to that prophet will be removed from the people and destroyed.’ Acts 3:22-23

Eye for Eye

…break for break, eye for eye, tooth for tooth -whatever injury he has caused the other person is to be rendered to him in return. Leviticus 24:20

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

I Will Be Their God

…but I will walk among you and be your God, and you will be my people. Leviticus 26:12

What agreement can there be between the temple of God and idols? For we are the temple of the living God – as God said, “I will house myself in them,…and I will walk among you. I will be their God, and they will be my people.” 2 Corinthians 6:16
