Example text

In addition, some of the Hebrew Qumran compositions likewise resemble the rewriting in the lxx books, even more so than the sp group. The best preserved rewritten Bible texts34 from Qumran are 11qta cols. 35 These parallels strengthen our aforementioned assertions relating to the rewriting in some lxx books and reversely the lxx helps us in clarifying the canonical status of the Qumran compositions. The main feature these compositions and the sp group have in common with the reconstructed sources of the lxx translations relates to the interaction between the presumably original Scripture text and exegetical additions.

9 These non-Masoretic text forms are the focus of our study. In some books, mt differs much from the lxx and the sp. These two sources are ancient and modern at the same time. They were created in antiquity, but are still authoritative in modern times. The sp is the Holy Writ of the Samaritan community. The lxx remains the Holy Writ of the Eastern Orthodox Church; while it was authoritative for the whole of Christianity for a long period, it was replaced in the Western Church by the Vulgate. The so-called Apocrypha of the lxx, including such books as Baruch and 1–2Maccabees, are still part of the Holy Scriptures of the Roman Catholics today, though named deutero-canonical (see further chapter 30 in the present volume).

In the meantime, Christianity had been born, and early Christians used the Greek lxx, which was originally a Jewish translation but had subsequently been adopted by Christianity. Greek-speaking Jews no longer used the lxx, focusing instead on its more recent Jewish revisions. The Samaritans, another group that had split off from Judaism probably in the third century bce, turned to their own Torah, which was based on a text that had been used previously in Judaism. The practical result of these developments was a division of texts among the religious communities after the destruction of the Temple.
