  • The Red Sea in the NT

    the Euphrates at the end of the fifth century BC (1894: bk. 1, chap. 5, par. 1). According to the writers of the Septuagint (LXX), kálamos was used in an anointing oil (Ex 30:23), was part of behemoth’s habitat (Jb 40:21), and part of the garden...

  • Setting the Record Straight on the Primeval Chronology of the Septuagint (Part 4)

    of Genesis. LAB 4.9 omits Kainan from its recitation of Genesis 10:24, indicating he was using a Hebrew text and not the LXX. Moreover, as I emphasized in my ICC article (p. 124), Lamech’s numbers in LAB only appear in the MT. His begetting age of 182...

  • From Adam to Abraham: An Update on the Genesis 5 and 11 Research Project: Dec 16, 2017

    history from Adam to Abraham. Up until the Reformation, a solid majority within the Church believed the Greek Septuagint (LXX) preserved most of the original numerical figures in Genesis 5 and 11. During the Reformation, the Hebrew Masoretic Text (MT)...

  • Setting the Record Straight on the Primeval Chronology of the Septuagint (Part 3)

    this particular statement was to appeal to those who may be influenced by irrational and ill-informed biases against the LXX to reconsider their position. In my articles online and in MT, SP, or LXX?, I cite other examples of the LXX’s superiority over...

  • The Role of the Septuagint in the Transmission of the Scriptures

    the inspired nature of the translation! This legend of the 70 is behind the common abbreviation for the Septuagint: LXX ('70' in Roman numerals; hereafter, LXX is used for 'Septuagint' in this article). While quotations of the LXX are as old as the...

  • Setting the Record Straight on the Primeval Chronology of the Septuagint (Part 2)

    the deflation of the primeval chronology reflected in the present-day Masoretic Text. Eusebius ( ca. AD 310) argued that the LXX should be followed (in part) because it “was translated from old and accurate Hebrew copies.” 13 Conversely, the MT’s...

  • The Duration of the Israelite Sojourn In Egypt

    This article was published in a full-color format in the Summer 2007 issue of Bible and Spade. From possibly as early as the LXX (ca. 250–150 BC)[i], there has been a tradition that the 430 years in Exodus 12:40 (or apparently rounded to the 400 years...

  • MT, SP, or LXX? Deciphering a Chronological and Textual Conundrum in Genesis 5

    internal, external and historical evidence supports the originality of the longer primeval chronology found (mostly) in the LXX. Thus far, the research has led to the conclusion that the MT's primeval chronology was deliberately reduced in the post 70...

  • New Evidence for Kainan in New Testament and LXX Papyri

    for many centuries. This article will survey “new” evidence for Kainan in manuscripts (MSS) of Luke and the Septuagint (LXX). The evidence itself is actually not “new” at all, but has been ignored in modern discussions about Kainan’s originality,...

  • The Biblical Date for the Exodus is 1446 BC: A Response to James Hoffmeier

    when the exodus occurred is a necessary first step in researching the Biblical exodus-conquest. Hoffmeier’s introduction of LXX chronological data in his section “WHAT IS THE BIBLICAL DATE OF THE EXODUS” is irrelevant to his defense of a 13th century...

  • Methuselah’s Begetting Age in Genesis 5:25 and the Primeval Chronology of the Septuagint

    Moses by Yahweh. Calculations derived from the MT yield a timespan for this period of about 2008 years. The Greek Septuagint (LXX) yields a chronology for this era of 3394 years, 1386 years greater than the MT. In some LXX manuscripts of Genesis 5:25,...

  • Who Was Born When Enosh Was 90?: A Semantic Reevaluation of William Henry Green's Chronological Gaps

    to the chronological interpretation of Gen 5 and 11 in the Masoretic Text (MT), God created Adam c. 4000 BC. The Septuagint (LXX), with its higher begetting ages, puts the creation of Adam c. 5500 BC. Few anthropologists accept such recent dates for the...

  • Amenhotep II and the Historicity of the Exodus Pharaoh

    602. A textual variant has arisen in 1 Kgs 6:1, with the original text reading either "480th year" (MT and Vg), or "440year" (LXX). Though the antiquity of the LXX renders its text important for determining the originality of any variant in the Hebrew...
