TANAKH TEXT HISTORY ACCORDING TO MODERN SCHOLARS PEACE THEOLOGY 101
PROTO-MASORETIC TEXT PEACE THEOLOGY 101 Much of the contents of the Tanakh, according to the Talmud, were compiled by the Men of the Great Assembly by 450 BCE, and have since remained unchanged. Modern scholars believe that the process of canonization of the Tanakh became finalized between 200 BCE and 200 CE. The Nash Papyrus (2nd century BC) contains a portion of a pre-Masoretic Text, specifically the Ten Commandments and the Shema Yisrael prayer.
THE SEPTUAGINT - LXX PEACE THEOLOGY 101 An ancient Greek translation of the Hebrew Bible. It was originally the designation for the Koine Greek translation of the Pentateuch, but came in time to refer to the Greek translation of the Old Testament adopted by Christians. The translation process was undertaken in stages between the 3rd century BCE and the 1st century CE, initially in Alexandria, but in time possibly elsewhere too. Although the translation was not completed for some time, it reached completion before 132 BCE.
ALEPPO CODEX PEACE THEOLOGY 101 The Aleppo Codex is a medieval manuscript of the Hebrew Bible (Tanakh), associated with Rabbi Aaron Ben Asher. The Masoretic scholars wrote it in the early 10th century, probably in Tiberias, Israel. It is in book form and contains the vowel points and grammar points (nikkudot) that specify the pronunciation of the ancient Hebrew letters to preserve the chanting tradition. It is perhaps the most historically important Hebrew manuscript in existence.
