Old Testament Passages Cited in the New Testament

This chart is adapted from the lists in the standard Greek texts, NA27 and UBS4. It may appear to include considerably fewer citations than would be expected, because it focuses only on exact quotations. The NT is filled with allusions to the OT, so the fact that, e.g., there are only five places where the NT gives an exact quotation of a passage from Numbers should not be used as a measure of the influence Numbers had on the biblical authors. Even though exact quotations of the OT may be relatively few, the influence of the OT on the thinking and language of the NT writers is pervasive. Further, it is often a judgment call in distinguishing between a “quotation” and an “allusion,” and sometimes the NT author uses only a phrase from the OT text.

Passages marked (LXX) denote those where the Greek translation is cited, and if the versification of the Hebrew OT differs from that of English translations, the abbreviation ET (for English Translation) precedes the English verse number.
