When God Spoke Greek

The Septuagint and the Making of the Christian Bible

Timothy Michael Law

  • The first time the story has been told for those outside of the academy
  • Today's English versions of the Old Testament are based on the Hebrew, not on the Greek Septuagint that was used by the New Testament and early Church. Thus, today readers of the Bible are reading a version of the Old Testament different from that of the apostles and early Church Fathers.
