Abstract and Keywords

A list of quotations and possible allusions to the Psalms can be found in the 27th edition of Novum Testamentum Graece. These quotations and allusions presumably exist in every book of the New Testament except for Philemon, Jude, 2 and 3 John, and 1 Thessalonians. The attribution of authority to the Psalms in Second Temple Judaism stemmed from the widespread belief of Davidic authorship, which was also the case with the writers of the New Testament. King David was closely associated with the Psalms and earned a reputation as a prolific composer of psalms. This article examines the use of Psalms in the New Testament. It discusses the Importance of the Psalms for ancient Jews and Christians and analyzes the use of Psalm 2:7 by several New Testament authors in their speculation about Jesus.

Keywords: Psalms, Novum Testamentum Graece, New Testament, King David, Jews, Christians, Psalm 2:7, Jesus
