The Septuagint (LXX) is the ancient Greek translation of the Old Testament. The apostles quoted it in the New Testament, and earliest Christians used it for many years. What role does it play for us today? How does translation shape our understanding of the Scriptures? Why do we turn to the Hebrew Old Testament instead of the Greek today? Join us as we discuss the LXX, the Masoretic Hebrew text, the Vulgate, and how they relate to each other.
