Matching Game

32 posts in this topic

Who said it first?

Much of what is said in the New Testament is quoted or referred to in the Old.

For example: In Matthew 21:33 Jesus begins His parable about the wicked husbandmen:

Quote

33 “Hear another parable: There was a certain landowner who planted a vineyard and set a hedge around it, dug a winepress in it and built a tower. And he leased it to vinedressers- NKJV

He is referring back to Isaiah 5:1:

Quote
 

My Well-beloved has a vineyard
On a very fruitful hill.

He dug it up and cleared out its stones,
And planted it with the choicest vine.
He built a tower in its midst,
And also made a winepress in it;
So He expected it to bring forth good grapes,
But it brought forth wild grapes- NKJV

He brings up a Scripture that is familiar with the people. But then He changes the story. He shows what God intended, and what indeed turned out in the end.

There is much wealth in the Old Testament. See what matches you can find as you make your way through your studies.

Lets see if I understand the matching game:
 

Daniel 12:2 NKHV 2. And many of those who sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, some to shame and everlasting contempt. 
Matthew 25:46 New King James Version (NKJV) 46. And these will go away into everlasting punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.”

Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else  Isaiah 45:22

And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me. John 12:32

 

i know it was not a quoting and citing of the previous text, but it is an echo of the same thought.

So He expected it to bring forth good grapes,
But it brought forth wild grapes- NKJV

You can possibly also match Isaiah 5:1-5 with Christ's parable in Luke 13:6-9

Isaiah 5:1-5, NKJV

1

Now let me sing to my Well-beloved
A song of my Beloved regarding His vineyard:

My Well-beloved has a vineyard
On a very fruitful hill.
He dug it up and cleared out its stones,
And planted it with the choicest vine.
He built a tower in its midst,
And also made a winepress in it;
So He expected it to bring forth good grapes,
But it brought forth wild grapes.

“And now, O inhabitants of Jerusalem and men of Judah,
Judge, please, between Me and My vineyard.
What more could have been done to My vineyard
That I have not done in it?
Why then, when I expected it to bring forth good grapes,
Did it bring forth wild grapes?
And now, please let Me tell you what I will do to My vineyard:
I will take away its hedge, and it shall be burned;
And break down its wall, and it shall be trampled down.

 

 

Luke 13:6-9, NKJV

He also spoke this parable: “A certain man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard, and he came seeking fruit on it and found none. 

Then he said to the keeper of his vineyard, ‘Look, for three years I have come seeking fruit on this fig tree and find none. Cut it down; why does it use up the ground?’ 

But he answered and said to him, ‘Sir, let it alone this year also, until I dig around it and fertilize it. 

And if it bears fruit, well. But if not, after that[a] you can cut it down.’”

Or match it with John 15: 1-7, NKJV

1

I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman.

 

Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit.

 

Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you.

 

Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.

 

I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.

 

If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.

 

If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.

Excellent! I marked that in my Bible. Nice to see the Easy-to-Read Version! Sometimes I find the most amazing things in some of those dynamic translations.

I am not going to quote all the verses but I remember a vespers program where Psalms 22-24 were shown as predicting the

death, time in grave and resurrection and ascension of Jesus into heaven....just amplifying Naomi's original quote.  Going through Psalm 22 expresses a lot of what He said and felt...v 14 all my bones are out of joint...v 18 They part my garments among them and cast lots upon my vesture....(Matt 27:35)

The same speaker suggested that "He hath done this"    v Ps 22:31 was another way of expressing "It is finished."

On the Sabbath His resting in the grave was related to the Shepherd Psalm.

And the magnificent words of Ps 24 :7-10 show the joy and triumph of Jesus returning to heaven.

 

(sorry if this is not quite in the spirit of the original plan for this thread...but it is something I enjoy considering.)

Old Testament: "The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me; because the Lord hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound; To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn;" Isaiah 61: 1 & 2, KJV

New Testament: "The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, To preach the acceptable year of the Lord." Luke 4: 18 & 19, KJV

I know it's not a perfect match, because they represent different things, but when this verse was discussed in church today, I thought about the other one, too...

 

"Thus saith the LORD unto me, Go and get thee a linen girdle, and put it upon thy loins, and put it not in water." (Jeremiah 13:1, KJV)

"Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth...(and having on the breastplate of righteousness)" (Ephesians 6:14, KJV-punctuation edited for emphasis)

In Jeremiah the belt represented the pride of the Israelites, but if you look at verse 11, "For as the girdle cleaveth to the loins of a man, so have I caused to cleave unto me the whole house of Israel and the whole house of Judah, saith the Lord; that they might be unto me for a people, and for a name, and for a praise, and for a glory: but they would not hear." and consider John 4:24 "God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth." and also take into consideration that the reason for Israel's falling away and becoming marred was because of their idolatry (back to Jeremiah 13: 10, 11), it seems that they can have some reasonable connection, because Jesus said He is the truth (See John 14:6), so then the Israelites (or their pride, represented by this girdle), became marred because they turned from the Truth.

Is there a connection, or am I working with it too much?

Yes! I see a definite connection. Having the loins girt about with truth is the point of the illustration in the OT. That is an excellent object lesson! Thank you for sharing that!

Mind if I use the apocrypha? This is one of the books that was purportedly discovered amongst the dead sea scrolls, which most likely means that it's possible the apostles had it amongst their collection of Scripture, and thus it is possible that it is part of the old testament? 

"Winnow not with every wind, and go not into every way: for so doth the sinner that hath a double tongue." -Ecclesiasticus 5: 10, KJV

"That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;" -Ephesians 4:14, KJV

And this one:

"My son, sow not upon the furrows of unrighteousness, and thou shalt not reap them sevenfold." -Ecclesiasticus 7:3, KJV

"Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap." -Galatians 6:7, KJV

And this:

"Seek not to be judge, being not able to take away iniquity; lest at any time thou fear the person of the mighty, an stumblingblock in the way of thy uprightness." -Ecclesiasticus 7:6, KJV

"Judge not, that ye be not judged. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again. And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? " -Matthew 7:1 & 2, KJV

Here's another one:

"Say not, God will look upon the multitude of my oblations, and when I offer to the most high God, he will accept it." -Ecclesiasticus 7:9, KJV

"But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking." -Matthew 6:7, KJV
