Excerpt from Where Did It All Come From?
© Robert E. Gentet 2016
"Interestingly, the oldest text of the Old Testament that we have today is the Septuagint [LXX]. It is a Greek translation from an even older Hebrew version of the Old Testament. What we call the Old Testament was originally written mainly in Hebrew. This portion of the LXX (the Torah that begins with Genesis) was translated several hundred years before Christ's birth from a Hebrew version available at that time. After the conquests of Alexander the Great, Greek came to be the lingua franca of the world of the Roman Empire. This language change greatly diminished the use of the Hebrew text among God's people. The Greek LXX translation made the Scriptures more accessible to not only the Jews, but to other peoples in the Roman Empire. It was widely used by all the writers of the New Testament when they quoted from the OT." (Where Did It All Come From? by Robert E. Gentet) (Evolution: A Theory in Crisis, p. 186)
