Principles of Biblical Quotations

Holy men of God spake as they were moved by the holy Spirit  (2 Peter 1:21).  From time to time we note what appear to be inaccuracies when New Testament writers quote from the Old Testament. Sometimes words are left out, added, or changed. Many times what we have learned in the Harvest Message applies to the second advent, is applied to the first advent. Other times a quote seems unrelated to the original scripture. In this study we consider some of the principles at work in these cases, to determine the reason for what at first seems to be an inconsistency.  The Bible is the Word of God. We should not think of the writers as being merely human agents like ourselves, who frequently make mistakes in quoting or injecting our own ideas.  In the past God spoke to our forefathers through the prophets (Hebrews 1:1, NIV). No prophecy of Scripture is a matter of ones own interpretation, for no prophecy was ever made by an act of human will, but men moved by the
holy Spirit spoke from God (2 Peter 1:20, 21, NAS).  Read more by clicking here:
