Quote from Jesus in Old Testament


I read somewhere that Jesus quoted someone from the Old Testament and that was no where to be found in the Old Testament. I am in a friendly exchange with a protestant brother and waned to point this out to him.

Also are there any quotes from the Didache in the New Testaments?


The only prophetic quote that comes to mind is found early in one of the Gospels,
“And coming he dwelt in a city called Nazareth: that it might be fulfilled which was
said by prophets: That he shall be called a Nazarene,” (Matthew 2:23).

I don’t know of one that Jesus himself quotes, but that’s all I got.




Thanks guys. What I was looking for was something that I read on a post here a while back. It said that Christ quotes either Noah, Moses or someone like that and that quote was not recorded in the Old Testament. Sort of like an oral story that he quoted.

Could have been an apostle, not sure…:o
