Re: Jesus Quotes the Septuagint
ramoss states (and I think it deserves repeating):

I would say that all that the use of Luke quote means is not that Jesus quoted the Septuagint or not, but that the author of Luke did.

I agree!

Jesus Quotes the Septuagint
autumnman writes:

the Septuagint is a phonetic, Alexandrian Greek translation of the Kethib {non-vocalized} Hebrew Scriptures. And just because the Kethib {non-vocalized} Hebrew Scriptures from which the phonetic, Alexandrian Greek translation was made no longer exist does not mean that the phonetic, Alexandrian Greek translation was rendered in an accurate manner.

The only thing “non-vocalized” about the Hebrew text was the Tetragrammaton and that became the case some long time after it was first written.

The difference between Qere and Ketiv is simply this: Ketiv (or Kethib) is the traditional, ancient, way of writing Hebrew – without vowel markings. This is how the ancient texts have come down and the way they are transcribed for public reading of the Torah.

The Qere: Hebrew written with vowel markings, is a Masoretic interpretive tool dating from the ninth and tenth centuries.

… the LXX version appears to be a toned-down version of Isaiah 61:1 & 2. …
Had the LXX translation of Isaiah 61:1 intended to be more accurate the translation … could be seen by Hellenic overlords as words that could insight upheaval and revolt among the Jews.

As if there were no other inflammatory passages in the Bible?

Therefore, the translators of the LXX were instructed to replace such inflammatory language …

As if the men who wrote Hebrew scriptures had no Assyrian, Babylonian, or Persian “overlords” to fear?

That is my view of why the LXX version of the Hebrew Scriptures is so dramatically different than the Hebrew MT version.

Is this why you have a low opinion of the Septuagint? Because you think God couldn’t get his message past “Hellenic” censors?

And it is my opinion that if Jesus of Nazareth were going to make a really solid point, he would have read the Hebrew version of Isaiah 61:1 & 2 and not the Septuagint version.

And maybe he preferred the Septuagint. :)

The Aramaic Church
I came across this interesting viewpoint today. The suggestion is that all the gospels were first written in Aramaic.


The link is for information only. I haven't the relevant background to debate it, but I thought it an appropriate footnote to this thread.

Re: Jesus Quotes the Septuagint

In his book The Alphabet Effect on page 38, Robert K. Logan states, “Reading a script” [with] ‘no provisions for vowels or vocalization’ “correctly was a matter of good guesswork guided by context.”


All of the letters of the Hebrew writing system are “consonants”, according to Ben-Yehuda’s Hebrew-English Dictionary, pg. iii.

In The Jewish Publication Society’s Torah Commentary-Genesis, on page xvii, Professor Sarna states, “For nearly two millennia and a half...Jewish intellectual and spiritual history may be said to be essentially the record of the variegated attempts to unfold the sense, meanings, purposes, intents and applications of the biblical texts.”

Why has there been two thousand five hundred years of attempts to unfold the sense, meanings, purposes, intents and applications of the Kethib {consonantal} biblical texts?. Because to read a Kethib text that has no provisions for vowels or vocalization correctly is a matter of guesswork before a context can even be established.

I apologize for not replying sooner, but I am in the midst of harvest and have very little time to spend on the computer.

Jesus Quotes the Septuagint

Thank you for the information. You're not the only one slow to respond.

From your post:


In The Jewish Publication Society’s Torah Commentary-Genesis, on page xvii, Professor Sarna states, “For nearly two millennia and a half...Jewish intellectual and spiritual history may be said to be essentially the record of the variegated attempts to unfold the sense, meanings, purposes, intents and applications of the biblical texts.”

Jews are not the only ones who are struggling to find meaning and context in the Bible.

I have spent the past three days comparing 22 versions in five languages, including the classics (LXX, Vulgate & Tanach). I wanted to see how much variety of translation is associated with a handfull of ancient words; all of which have been "translated" by our word: "earth." In the course of this little Bible Study, I have observed a change in how translators have dealt with this word subsequent to the Copernican heresy and again after the dawn of the Space Age. This finding fits well with other evidences of Bible tweaking by persons with a vested interest in the business of religion. And, it does not bode well for those who wish to argue anything of "global" import from the Bible. This includes the Creation, the Flood, the Gospel Commission, and the bit about inheriting "the earth." Correct me if I'm wrong, but if you take all that away there's not much left for believers to get head-up about.

So what's new? Nothing really. I merely wish to multiply the weight of evidence in anticipation of a tipping point at which that silly load of bull will slide out of the American conscience and leave us feeling lighter, stronger, and ready to become citizens of the real "Earth."

9daniel in ad2004.com is about the meshikha not the anti-meshikha and the lion of the "end of days" is unecessarily j christ (of judah)

/is not armageddon:

GEN 1 in the beginning god created the heavens and the earth, and the earth became laid waste; as opposed to "was formless"

RE: Zeitgeist 2: Addendum

"words of Genesis 1:2 'and the earth was (became) formless and void'
The next sentence, 'and the earth was formless and void', is in
error in most English translations. It should read, 'and the earth
became formless and void.' The Hebrew word translated 'was formless'
in English versions of the Bible is 'toh-ho' a verb which means, 'to
lay waste'. "

"on the wings of abomination it shall be made desolate"

'Mayan Elder, Hunbatz Men, also revealed that the Mayans have known about

"The Biblical phenomenon:
"Here is the mind which has wisdom.
The seven heads are seven mountains
on which the woman (the harlot Babylon) sits."
Rev. 17:9 KJV, NKV

Is this clue referring to the 'seven hills of Rome'? I don't think so.
If we take this literally and look for mountains, we can actually find
one geographic area in the world where exactly seven mountain ranges converge -
in a remote spot in northeastern Pennsylvania, USA!

A map drawn in 1872 gives this area a name, one which may be surprisingly
prophetic. The name? The World's End."
