Reflection Questions
  • How does the exponential nature of population growth relate to the question of the size of the community that escaped Egypt?

  • To what extent have both the order and number of documents contained in our “Old Testament” today been a matter of considerable discussion and complexity?

  • How does the present-day order of the “books” of the Bible shed light on the ancient influence of the LXX?

  • How does the ancient role of the LXX in a multi-cultural world give clues for modern missionary strategy?
