  • 13. The initial recipients of the New Testament books did not have personal copies of the Old Testament, which meant that most people relied on the meaning of the text more than the precise wording of the text. This means that the majority of quotations in close conformity are from passages most people would have memorized or heard frequently … Quotations from less familiar texts are more likely to be quoted for reasons other than strict repetition of the original… It is also true that sometimes the New Testament writer incorporated his allusions to the Old into the argument or literary style by changes inconsequential to the meaning or purpose, but which blend the allusion into the narrative better. Bob Passantino
