This is pretty cool: someone has gone through the entire Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom and noted all the biblical references in it . A small example:
Choir: Through the prayers of the Theotokos (Mother of God), Savior, save us.
Bible References: Galatians 3:24, Saint Luke 1: 46 – 55, Saint Luke 1:42
Deacon: Again and again in peace let us again pray to the Lord.
Bible References: 1 Thessalonians 5:17
Choir: Kyrie, eleison.
Translation: Lord, have mercy.
Bible References: Psalms 51:1
Deacon: Help us, save us, have mercy upon us, and protect us, O God, by Your grace.
Bible References: Psalms 123:3, Psalms 106:47, Saint Mark 9:22
Deacon: Remembering our most holy, pure, blessed, and glorious Lady, the Theotokos and ever virgin Mary, with all the saints, let us commit ourselves and one another, and our whole life to Christ our God.
Bible References: Saint Luke 1:42
Choir: To You, O Lord.
Bible References: Acts 20:32
Priest: For Thine is the majesty, and Thine is the Kingdom and the power and the glory: of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, now and ever and unto ages of ages.
Bible References: Revelation 8:12, 1 Chronicles 29:11, Saint Matthew 6:13, Daniel 4:34
Oftentimes Protestant Christians will accuse liturgical Christians such as Catholics or Orthodox of not engaging in “biblical worship”. This page shows that nothing could be further from the truth.
