Douglas Wilson suggested this study method in his book "Heaven Misplaced". 


When I was first working through this, I bought a Bible I could mark up well. I then spent a few weeks looking up every passage in the Old Testament that is quoted in the New. Many Bibles will mark such cross-references in the New Testament, but it is rarely done in the Old. I highlighted every quotation from the Old Testament in the New Testament, and then I looked it up in the Old Testament and highlighted it there. Then I wrote in the Old Testament margin where in the New Testament this passage was quoted. When I was done, I had sloppily executed The Apostolic Study Bible. When I was reading in the Old Testament, I could immediately tell if Jesus, Peter, or Paul had ever discussed the passage I was currently wondering about.


I was wondering if there was a quicker way to do this in Accordance. Does anyone have an idea of a method?

I would cut and paste a list such as this one: http://www.preceptau...s_in_the_nt.htm and then highlight it in a specific color. You could then attach a verse note with the referenced New Testament passage in each one. 


I'm not sure if there is a faster way. Perhaps Accordance already has a module for this?

Would the OT in NT parallel in Acc help ? It sounds like basically the same sort of thing to me. Its in the Starter Collection so it should be available if you're on 10.

Slightly off topic but have you also considered Commentary on the New Testament Use of the Old Testament http://www.accordanc...rson Commentary As your starting source for the references in the NT? I am enjoying using this gem.
