Accordance Bible Software

The New Testament contains more than 100 quotations from the Psalms. With two small exceptions, every New Testament writer draws from the beloved hymnbook of God’s chosen people.

 

In the opening line of the New Testament, Matthew declares that Jesus is “the son of David” and then uses 15 quotations from the Psalms to prove His Messiahship.

 

When Mary—“a virgin pledged to be married to...a descendant of David”—breaks out in song (1:46-55), she effortlessly quotes repeatedly from the Psalms. The same is true of Zacharias, father of John the Baptist. (1:68-79)

 

Luke 24:27
