    A LOST RACE

    A kind soul sent me some picture postcards. And some other Andaman islands related substance. See posts 11, 13, 20, 25, 37 and 39.

    Let us start with the Dwarf Men of Tamankaduva:

    Is there any difference between the Euskadi, the Lithuanian and the Greek Bible? Except the language?
    Is it a translation of the Torah?

    Well, Torah is only the first five books of Moses. It is the holy book of the Jews as it is seen (by the Orthodox at least) being dictated by God.

    It was translated into Greek in the 3rd Century B.C.
    It was by then considered important because Greek was the Lingua Franca of the Levantine Jews. That is the Pentateuch.

    The other parts of the Septuagint (the Greek Old Testament) were translated later. The Language is early Koine (common Greek of the period), neither Classical or modern Greek.

    The Old Testament is a Christian concept. Otherwise there is no difference.
    Many Christian Bibles ("The Old Testament") were translated from the Septuagint and not from the Hebrew original texts. Many were translated from the Latin Vulgate and even from the Martin Luther translation.

    Many national Bibles are translations from translations from translations.
    The text can be misleading in the end.

    Especially the Luther Bible has many gross mistakes.

    All things considered the Pentateuch (= the very earliest translation) is relatively free of errors. It does contain "semiticisms" which is quite natural as these are home in Koine.
