Ask AI on The Internet

Question: Please edit this for clarity: From what I’ve gathered, the oldest copy of the Jewish Bible only goes back to around 1000 CE with the Masoretic text. Whereas in Christianity, their Old Testament comes from the Septuagint and the oldest complete physical copy of it goes back to around 350 CE. So although the texts are originally in Hebrew, the phsysical copy of the Old Testament is older. Being that Herod the Great ( and possibly other Jewish kings ) was established by the Roman Empire, is it reasonable to wonder if Jewish history and oral traditions could’ve been tampered with?

Based on my understanding, the oldest physical copy of the Jewish Bible, specifically the Masoretic text, dates back to around 1000 CE. Meanwhile, in Christianity, the Old Testament is derived from the Septuagint, with its oldest intact copy dating back to around 350 CE. Even though the original texts are in Hebrew, it seems the physical copy of the Old Testament holds a longer history. Given that Herod the Great, along with possible other Jewish leaders, was appointed by the Roman Empire, it's plausible to question if Jewish history and oral traditions might have been influenced or altered.
