Although the subject of the present volume has attracted the atten tion of the church in a greater or less degree even from the time of the apostles, it seems in the earlier ages to have been treated but incidentally nor does it appear to have been systematically discussed until after the Reformation. Since that period many lists of the quotations have been compiled,* and collections of the more obvious and direct citations have been, in several instances, printed at full length. Still it is believed that no arrangement of all, or nearly all, the passages of the New Testament which in a wide sense are entitled to be regarded as quotations, whether from Moses and the prophets or from writers not inspired, has hitherto appeared. A list of all known preceding works specifically devoted to the subject, and of some referring to it but in part, is appended to this Preface. Most of them have been used in the preparation of this volume.
The value of an arrangement of the New Testament quotations must be proportionate to the facility afforded by it for the study of the important class of scripture parallels in question. To facilitate this study is the end which I proposez others must judge how far I have accomplished it.
On the peculiar value and importance of the New Testament quotations, it is needless to enlarge. Some of their leading uses may however be brie?y alluded to.
