Paul's Use of the Old Testament

The Apostle Paul quoted the Old Testament, perhaps around 93 times.

Paul didn't claim that his Gospel was found verbatim in the Old Testament, as if his message was not in any way different from the Old Covenant lifestyle - rather, Paul claimed that the Gospel - both its historical facts, and its revelation of the redemptive significance of those facts - and the changes it implies - followed-on naturally from the Old Testament.

He claimed that the Old Testament predicted it. And foreshadowed it.
