The LXX was written or rather translated in the 3rd Century BC and has undergone no change whatsoever, whereas the MT differs greatly from Hebrew texts uncovered in recent finds. The Qumran caves in fact correxpond more closely to the Greek used in the LXX.
This fact makes me think, just how much should we trust the Jewish versions of the Bible. I know that the NRSV is based on the MT more than the LXX. Other Bible versions also do this. Only the KJV (not NKJV) try to fiollow the LXX more.
Why are more people more likely to be in possession of a MT translation of the Bible these days? Why has the LXX remained unchanged whereas the Hebrew versions of the Bible differ so much? In that case, can the MT still realy be called the Word of God?
