One thought on “Bible Echoes”

  1. We see many examples of when the New Testament quotes and gives spirit led revelation into the Old.
    I’m currently fascinated by the First Century prophets and how inspiration worked in the ecclesia’s when the Spirit gifts existed.

    One interesting aspect of this is when the New Testament quotes from other parts of the New Testament. This can also add insight into the growth and compilation os scripture.

    These are the passages I have so far which I submit for discussion for your readers. I’m sure there will be more. If anyone spots anymore maybe these could be added?

    It might also be interesting to do the same for the Old Testament.

    Direct quotes

    1 Corinthians 11:24 quotes Luke 22:19&20
    Revelation 1:7 quotes Matt 24:30
