About the Series: Septuagint
The Septuagint was the original Old Testament used by Christians in the first few centuries, and before that, it was the Tanakh of the Sadducee sect of Judaism. It was was later replaced in western Bibles by the Masoretic Texts, which were based on the Tanakh used by the Pharisee sect of Judaism. As a result, most early Christian writings are confusing, especially when discussing the chronology of the world. The Septuagint series is a 21st-century English translation that is easy to understand, using common English versions of Hebrew names instead of transliterated Greek names that are generally found in translations of the Septuagint. When ancient place names are known, such as Uruk, the modern term is used instead of the Greek (Orech) or Hebrew (Erech) translations. Unlike the later Masoretic Texts, the Septuagint was not a monotheistic work, but rather a Hedonistic text, which recognized the existence of many gods, but was dedicated to the worship of one above the others: Iao, later transliterated as Jehovah or Yahweh.
