BIBLE Terms Septuagint


- Info:

- Septuagint is Greek translation of the Torah.

- Septuagint was written by seventy Rabbis at the library at Alexandria in Egypt.

- Because the Ptolemy pharaohs were ancestors of the Piso/Flavians the Septuagint was actually paid for by them.

- Because they owned it, they decided to include it in their new version of the Bible.

- It is interesting that there were 70 Rabbis involved in the writing, and the temple at Jerusalem was destroyed in 70 CE.
