Abstract

The study of these quotations can serve us in several ways. It can increase our appreciation and understanding of the Old Testament as we observe the way in which the various New Testament writers understood and applied the Old Testament texts to the situation of the New. Furthermore, the theological intent of a New Testament writer may be highlighted by the manner in which he quotes the Old. Answers to questions relating to the purpose, structure, background, and historicity of a New Testament Gospel, for instance, may be informed by a study of the evangelist's use of the Old Testament.
