Dear friend of St. Athanasius Academy:
Orthodox Study Bible: Old Testament Septuagint
Its Importance to You
It is helpful to keep in mind that like the earliest Christian community, the Orthodox Church continues using the 49 books of the Greek version of the Old Testament called the Septuagint (LXX). It was produced by seventy of the finest Jewish scholars, who were gathered together in Alexandria some three centuries before the birth of Jesus, our Christ. It became the universally accepted version of the Old Testament. These inspired Old Testament books tell the story of the God of all, and His working with ancient Israel.
