The New Testament view on the Inspiration of the Old Testament


(Mat 8:4 NIV)  Then Jesus said to him, "See that you don't tell anyone. But go, show yourself to the priest and offer the gift Moses commanded, as a testimony to them."

(Mat 19:8 NIV)  Jesus replied, "Moses permitted you to divorce your wives because your hearts were hard. But it was not this way from the beginning.

(Mark 1:44 NIV)  "See that you don't tell this to anyone. But go, show yourself to the priest and offer the sacrifices that Moses commanded for your cleansing, as a testimony to them."

(Mark 7:10 NIV)  For Moses said, 'Honor your father and your mother,' and, 'Anyone who curses his father or mother must be put to death.'

(Mark 10:3 NIV)  "What did Moses command you?" he replied.

(Mark 10:5 NIV)  "It was because your hearts were hard that Moses wrote you this law," Jesus replied.

(Mark 12:26 NIV)  Now about the dead rising--have you not read in the book of Moses, in the account of the bush, how God said to him, 'I am the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob'?

(Luke 5:14 NIV)  Then Jesus ordered him, "Don't tell anyone, but go, show yourself to the priest and offer the sacrifices that Moses commanded for your cleansing, as a testimony to them."

(Luke 16:29 NIV)  "Abraham replied, 'They have Moses and the Prophets; let them listen to them.'

(Luke 16:31 NIV)  "He said to him, 'If they do not listen to Moses and the Prophets, they will not be convinced even if someone rises from the dead.'"

(Luke 20:37 NIV)  But in the account of the bush, even Moses showed that the dead rise, for he calls the Lord 'the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.'

(Luke 24:27 NIV)  And beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, he explained to them what was said in all the Scriptures concerning himself.

(Luke 24:44 NIV)  He said to them, "This is what I told you while I was still with you: Everything must be fulfilled that is written about me in the Law of Moses, the Prophets and the Psalms."

(John 1:17 NIV)  For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.

(John 5:45 NIV)  "But do not think I will accuse you before the Father. Your accuser is Moses, on whom your hopes are set.

(John 5:46 NIV)  If you believed Moses, you would believe me, for he wrote about me.

(John 7:19 NIV)  Has not Moses given you the law? Yet not one of you keeps the law. Why are you trying to kill me?"

(John 7:22 NIV)  Yet, because Moses gave you circumcision (though actually it did not come from Moses, but from the patriarchs), you circumcise a child on the Sabbath.

(John 7:23 NIV)  Now if a child can be circumcised on the Sabbath so that the law of Moses may not be broken, why are you angry with me for healing the whole man on the Sabbath?


(Acts 3:22 NIV)  For Moses said, 'The Lord your God will raise up for you a prophet like me from among your own people; you must listen to everything he tells you.

(Acts 13:39 NIV)  Through him everyone who believes is justified from everything you could not be justified from by the law of Moses.

(Acts 15:1 NIV)  Some men came down from Judea to Antioch and were teaching the brothers: "Unless you are circumcised, according to the custom taught by Moses, you cannot be saved."

(Acts 15:5 NIV)  Then some of the believers who belonged to the party of the Pharisees stood up and said, "The Gentiles must be circumcised and required to obey the law of Moses."

(Acts 15:21 NIV)  For Moses has been preached in every city from the earliest times and is read in the synagogues on every Sabbath."

(Acts 26:22 NIV)  But I have had God's help to this very day, and so I stand here and testify to small and great alike. I am saying nothing beyond what the prophets and Moses said would happen--

(Acts 28:23 NIV)  They arranged to meet Paul on a certain day, and came in even larger numbers to the place where he was staying. From morning till evening he explained and declared to them the kingdom of God and tried to convince them about Jesus from the Law of Moses and from the Prophets.

(Rom 9:15 NIV)  For he says to Moses, "I will have mercy on whom I have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I have compassion."

(Rom 10:5 NIV)  Moses describes in this way the righteousness that is by the law: "The man who does these things will live by them."

(Rom 10:19 NIV)  Again I ask: Did Israel not understand? First, Moses says, "I will make you envious by those who are not a nation; I will make you angry by a nation that has no understanding."

(1 Cor 9:9 NIV)  For it is written in the Law of Moses: "Do not muzzle an ox while it is treading out the grain." Is it about oxen that God is concerned?

(2 Cor 3:15 NIV)  Even to this day when Moses is read, a veil covers their hearts.

(Heb 3:5 NIV)  Moses was faithful as a servant in all God's house, testifying to what would be said in the future.

(Heb 9:19 NIV)  When Moses had proclaimed every commandment of the law to all the people, he took the blood of calves, together with water, scarlet wool and branches of hyssop, and sprinkled the scroll and all the people.

(Heb 10:28 NIV)  Anyone who rejected the law of Moses died without mercy on the testimony of two or three witnesses.
