14 Days of the Old Testament in the New Testament

Matthew 15:11
It is not what enters into the mouth that defiles the man, but what proceeds out of the mouth, this defiles the man.

August 16 – Matthew 12:18-21
Matthew’s longest Old Testament quote is found here. He referred to Isaiah 42:1-4 when he described the quiet and gentle nature of Jesus’ ministry. Isaiah was describing God’s chosen servant who would come and make all things right. Even though the prophet did not know when the Savior would be born or that his name would be Jesus, he had faith that God would send his chosen one.
