    Default Please help me here; I'm suffering from a momentary memory lapse

    There is a technical term for when a New Testament author merges two Old Testament quotes into one. For the life of me, I can't remember it now. Grateful if someone could remind me. A penny for your thoughts. Thanks.

    Composite quotes?
    καὶ ὑπὲρ πάντων ἀπέθανεν ἵνα οἱ ζῶντες μηκέτι ἑαυτοῖς ζῶσιν, ἀλλὰ τῷ ὑπὲρ αὐτῶν ἀποθανόντι καὶ ἐγερθέντι.

    Hi Irving,
    Lee is right. I found this helpful: http://studylight.org/dic/hbd/view.cgi?number=T4699 I'm glad you asked the question; I learned something.

    No, that's not the term. But thanks for trying, Lee.

    Hey Joan,

    While the website to which you refer may use the designation "Composite Quote," that is not the term I was looking for. There is another scholarly term that has historically been used to describe this procedure of merging two OT quotes into one. But thanks for your post.
