    Textual Variants in the Book of Hosea: Bible textual variants analysed. Introduction: The Variants in Hosea stem from a corrupt Hebrew Masoretic text that predates the translation of the Septuagint in BC. Not surprisingly, the small number of Dead Sea Scroll fragments that have been found, confirm the reading of the Masoretic Text. This book-by-book vocabulary guide provides an unparalleled resource for anyone interested in more effective reading and study of the Old Testament in Greek, commonly called the Septuagint. Aside from two full-scale specialist lexicons for the Septuagint, no other printed resource exists that provides concise and strategic guidance to the language of this important ancient corpus.

In comparing the New Testament quotations of the Hebrew Bible, it is clear that the Septuagint was often used. Many of the New Testament quotes from the Hebrew Bible are taken from the Septuagint.

    The Septuagint stands as one of the great historical wonders of the world. It was the world’s first major work of translation. The history and stories behind the Septuagint are shrouded with intrigue and mystery. It also has held general prominence over any other version of the Old Testament for over years.   This is a book to keep close by when reading your Septuagint. It gives you a current and concise summary of the most significant issues for each book. When it comes to analyzing each book of the Septuagint, there is another book on the market that does almost the same thing called the T&T Clark Companion to the Septuagint. It involves some of.
