Jesus spoke both Hebrew and Aramaic as he was Palestinian Jew and attended the Temple.
The writers of the gospels were Jews of the Diaspora, Paul taught Greek speaking Jews....so of course they would have used the Septuagint since the Hebrew/Aramaic would have been "unwieldy" for them since they were not fluent.
The Septuagint became the Bible the early church used...not because Jesus used it...but because it was the one the Greek speaking Diaspora and Greeks could read.
Question "Palestinian Jew" To my knowledge there is no such thing. The term Palestinain did come about til after the destruction of Israel in 70 AD. Paul did not carry the Jewish book with him, he talked to the people in many different languages. When he did speak to the Jews they would check their Books to see if what he said was true. Look to Acts of Paul in Berea.
