• Septuagint is the term given to the ancient Greek translation of the Hebrew Old Testament compiled around 250B.C. (during the period between testaments).


  • Commissioned by the Greek speaking Hellenistic emperor Ptolemy II, the Latin word septuaginta (or seventy, denoted by the abbreviation LXX) refers to the 70 translators appointed by the Jewish high priest to complete the commission.


  • This miraculous event opened communication of the Hebrew Bible to the Greek speaking world. God is all about communicating with the masses.


  • This resulted in the Septuagint, rather than the Hebrew text, becoming the Bible version of the early church.
