Old Testament Quotations

Old Testament prophecies quoted in the New Testament. The Old Testament scriptures are quoted often in the New Testament, and used various ways. A transnational note in Darby's bible on Matt. 2 is helpful:
  1. To show the event, without which the prophecy could not be fulfilled; in these cases it says “that it might be fulfilled” e.g. John 19:24, 28, 36.
  2. To show that an event is within the scope and intention of the prophecy, but not necessarily the object of the prophecy; in these cases it says “so that should be fulfilled” e.g. matt. 2:23, Matt. 8:17, Matt. 13:35.
  3. To give an illustration of what was said in the prophecy, like a case in point; in these cases it will say “then was fulfilled” or “this is that which was spoken” e.g. acts 2:16 (final fulfillment is in the millennium), Matt. 2:17, (final fulfillment will be the two tribes weeping for the ten before they return to the land).
  4. To bring a principle to bear on a New Testament issue; in these cases it says, “as it is written” or “according as it is written” e.g. Acts 15:15-17, Rom. 8:36. However, sometimes “as it is written” is used for (1) or (2).
A good comparison is in John 19:36 and 37. This simple distinction is critical to an understanding of prophecy. Covenant theologians make a huge error in their exegesis of these quotations, and it has resulted in incalculable damage.
