STUDY THE SEPTUAGINT
God Through Anne Terri With The Holy Spirit:
To study the vast texts of The Septuagint, one needs to understand how they overlap The Old Testament in use today, within Holy Bible, and the many versions which are accepted. The site to which I link below is a collaborative effort of many who are working to explain the similarities and differences within these ancient texts.
The Septuagint (LXX) is the name commonly given in the West to the Koine Greek Alexandrine text of the Hebrew Bible (Tanakh/Old Testament) produced some time between the third to first century BC. The Septuagint Bible includes additional books of the old Jewish canon beyond those contained in the Hebrew Bible, including the books of the Maccabees, much beloved and revered by Jews today. These additional books were composed in Greek with small portions in Aramaic, and in most cases only the Greek version has survived to the present. The Septuagint is the oldest and most important complete version of the Old Testament and predates the Hebrew, or Masoretic, text by as much as 1,000 years (see below).
