The Septuagint (commonly abbreviated "LXX") is a Greek translation of the Old Testament. Today, more than 2,000 years after the Septuagint was completed, we can see how Hebrew terms and concepts were translated into Greek for use by Hellenistic Jews. This provides insight to students of the whole Bible, both the Old and New Testaments. Old Testament scholars can garner a better understanding of how the Old Testament was understood and practiced based on the translation into Greek. New Testament scholars gain access to a version of the Old Testament comparable to what the New Testament writers used. Linguists can embark on grammatical studies, to compare Septuagint usage of a term with New Testament usage.
