QUOTATIONS FROM THE OLD TESTAMENT IN THE NEW TESTAMENT

      The close connection between the Old and New Testament is shown by the number of times the Old Testament is quoted in the New Testament. Bagster's Bible gives 889 quotations and allusions. George F. Pentecost gives the number at 885, a few of the allusions given by Bagster's Bible being disputed. Every book of the Old Testament is quoted except Obadiah, Nahum, Zephaniah, and Esther. There is only one quotation from the Song of Solomon. According to Dr. Pentecost the number of the Old Testament quotations and allusions in each New Testament book is as follows:

The Gospel of Matthew, 96 Times   1 Thessalonians, 2 Times
The Gospel of Mark, 34     "       2         "        , 2     "    
The Gospel of Luke, 58     "       1 Timothy, 6     "    
The Gospel of John, 40     "       2     "     , 2     "    
Acts of the Apostles, 57     "       Hebrews, 86     "
