T he Septuagint
Discover the Bible Jesus read and quoted from. Our Masoretic texts are 99% identical with the Septuagint texts, but suffered in the Old Testament some retroactive, punctual and decisive manipulations - e.g. the watering down of prophecies about Jesus Christ being the Messiah, and the falsification of 64% of the begetting ages in the genealogies that form the sole basis for the date of creation.
I compared the Septuagint texts (without the probably non-canonical Apocrypha) with the Masoretic texts of our common Bibles, and am able to clearly prove the superiority of the Septuagint. Are we able to go back to the truth?
The word of God is inspired, but is the canon of 49 books (modern count of 66 books) also inspired? Find out what historians and scholars such as Athanasius, Eusebius, Hilary, Josephus or Melito stated about the precise canon of the Bible and learn why non-canonical books had been rightfully rejected.
Discover also non-canonical (-uninspired-) writings, such as the first century letters of the Apostolic Fathers, the popular Dead Sea Scrolls and the Apocrypha.

The books of Enoch and Jubilees - legit as many Christians claim? Clearly not - as I can prove through the unfulfilled Prophecy Of The 10 weeks (Enoch) and the corrupted timeline (Jubilees).
