Paul (Saul) was a Jew who was well on his way up in Judaism (Acts 9:1-2,26:4-5,10-11 Gal 1:13-14, Phil 3:4-6).  So he knew his scripture (O.T.) and as he writes his epistles, the Holy Spirit brings these things to mind and reveals the hidden truths for the believers in Christ. Sometimes he quotes directly and other times alludes to the ideas.

 

Paul’s Epistle to the believers at Ephesus (1:1) was written around 64 AD to Gentile Believers (2:11). He drew upon the scriptures (our Old Testament) because just as today the SCRIPTURE (OT and NT) are our authority. Paul sets out to explain the believers position IN CHRIST since Salvation and he calls for unity among believers (4:3-6). He assures us that Faith plus nothing (2:8-9) puts us into this relationship with God. So listed below are the (Jewish) Scripture verses Paul Quotes.
