Did Jesus authorize the Septuagint Bible?

The Septuagint Bible was the New International Version of circa 250 BC and immensely popular in its time.

  • The majority of Hebrew people in Jesus' day accepted the Septuagint as inspired by God.
  • Jesus utilized the Septuagint in his ministry, even reading aloud from it in public.
  • The apostles often quote from the Septuagint when citing passages of the Old Testament.
  • Saint Paul, who often quotes the Septuagint, is famous for saying, "All scripture is inspired by God."
{When Paul wrote this, none of his writings nor any writings of the other apostles had yet been collected into what we call "the New Testament." Thus it seems likely that Paul was not including the New Testament in what he imagined as "All scripture ..."}

It is clear that Jesus and his apostles utilized the Septuagint Bible as if it were The Holy Scriptures.

Thus the question:

Does this usage constitute endorsement of the Septuagint as the official Word of God?
