Jesus quoted from an Old Testament Passage that does not Exist

 On the last day of the festival, the great day, while Jesus was standing there, he cried out, “Let anyone who is thirsty come to me, 38 and let the one who believes in me drink. As<sup class="footnote" data-fn="#fen-NRSV-26356a" data-link="[a]”>[a] the scripture has said, ‘Out of the believer’s heart<sup class="footnote" data-fn="#fen-NRSV-26356b" data-link="[b]”>[b] shall flow rivers of living water.’”

                                                                                                       John 7:37-38


No such passage exists in the Old Testament.
