The Septuagint

The Septuagint is the Jewish Alexandrian Greek translation of the Hebrew texts from the third to the first century BCE that contains extra books that were not in the Hebrew Bible.  There were supposedly 72 Jewish Greek scholars who translated the Hebrew Bible into Greek, so that it became known at the Greek Old Testament.  This Greek text was probably the scripture readings that the early Christians used, since they wrote in Greek.
