Many may ask, "What is the Septuagint " The Septuagint is the Greek Old Testament of the Christian Church. It was the version of the Old Testament translated from the Hebrew into Greek and was used by the Greek-speaking Jews of Alexandria before the coming of Christ. The Septuagint, more than the Hebrew Old Testament, clearly shows that the prophesies of the future Messiah refer to Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and to no other. Also, the writers of the New Testament almost exclusively quoted from the Septuagint when they quoted the Old Testament within the pages of the New Testament. This is the Septuagint, and it is now available for the first time in over 150 years in English and based on Septuagint texts that are authorized by The Holy Orthodox Church.
