Internal Evidence For The Consistency Of The Old Testament--New Testament Authors Recognized The Writings Of The Prophets To Be Divinely Authoritative

  • Matthew Refers To A Prophecy In The Book Of Jeremiah As Finding Its Fulfillment In Christ:
          -"Then that which was spoken through Jeremiah the prophet was fulfilled: “And they took the thirty pieces of silver, the price of the one whose price had been set by the sons of Israel." (Matthew 27:9)
  • Mark Endorses Mosaic Authorship Of The Pentateuch:
          -"But regarding the fact that the dead rise again, have you not read in the book of Moses, in the passage about the burning bush, how God spoke to him, saying, ‘I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob’? He is not the God of the dead, but of the living; you are greatly mistaken.” (Mark 12:26)
  • The Apostle Peter Affirms Joel To Be A Prophet In Addressing A Crowd:
          -"No, this is what was spoken by the prophet Joel: ‘In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy," (Acts 2:16)
  • The Apostle Paul Affirms Hosea To Be A Prophet In Quoting Him:
          -"even us, whom He also called, not from among Jews only, but also from among Gentiles. As He says also in Hosea, “I will call those who were not My people, ‘My people,’ And her who was not beloved, ‘beloved.’” “And it shall be that in the place where it was said to them, ‘you are not My people,’ There they shall be called sons of the living God.” (Romans 9:24-26)
  • The Apostle Paul Affirms Isaiah To Be A Prophet In Quoting Him:
          -"Isaiah cries out concerning Israel, “Though the number of the sons of Israel be like the sand of the sea, it is the remnant that will be saved; for the Lord will execute His word on the earth, thoroughly and quickly." And just as Isaiah foretold, “Unless the Lord of Sabaoth had left to us a posterity, we would have become like Sodom, and would have resembled Gomorrah.” (Romans 9:27-29)
