The Septuagint (or "LXX", or "Greek Old Testament") is a translation of the Hebrew Old Testament and certain Apocrypha, which was sponsored according to tradition in the late 3rd century BC by Ptolemy II Philadelphus, the king of Ptolemaic Egypt (283 BC to 246 BC). The Greek translation was originally created for use by the Alexandrian Jews who were fluent in Koine Greek, but not in Hebrew. Thus the Septuagint is sometimes called the "Apostle's Bible" and the one that Jesus and his disciples would have had access to. It is quoted in the New Testament by writers such as the Apostle Paul, and remained the Scripture of use by the Apostolic Fathers. The translation of the Septuagint into English by Sir Lancelot C. L. Brenton was first published in 1851 and was based primarily upon the Codex Vaticanus, one of the oldest extant manuscripts of the Greek Bible. It remains the standard of use by many scholars and students of Scripture and history.

I love this book. I have Volume 1 and 3, and I plan on buying volume 2 soon. What it's missing is the name of the books in the corners of the pages like the bibles do because when I want to find a quick verse or go to a certain book I have to look through the pages until I find the beginning of the book to locate the title or I have to look up the page number. But this is no big deal, these volumes are meant for research and I think they are excellent!
This is the 1851 translated copy the Bible of Christ's day. It is the Old Testament that was translated into Greek by the Alexandrian Jews and accepted by the Jewish people. It is the Bible that Jesus and the apostles used.
This book is an excellent companion to the Apocrypha (Vol 1). It draws the reader into realms you couldn't imagine. In these last days, we need to learn everything we can about the heaven and earth realms. Ask the Holy Spirit to guide you as you read the text for greater clarity. Enjoy.
