The Septuagint Bible Package
The Astonishing Story of a 1900 Year Old Rabbinical Conspiracy to Corrupt the Bible’s History and Thwart Belief in Jesus as the Messiah
by Doug Woodward
Rebooting the Bible Volume 1
Rebooting the Bible tells the shocking story of a second-century rabbinic conspiracy altering the words of the Bible to thwart the massive conversion of Jews to the Christian Gospel. The alterations sought to obscure the Messianic prophecies – concealing the case they set forth that Jesus of Nazareth is the Jewish Messiah. In addition, this provocative book presents extensive evidence that this conspiracy cut out 1,600 years from biblical chronology, thereby compressing crucial events in Genesis (e.g., the Flood and the Tower of Babel) into a much-reduced time-frame, harming the Bible’s witness regarding the ancient history of the world.
Its in-depth research identifies surprising yet substantiated dates for the birth of Abraham, the duration of the Egyptian enslavement, the timing of the Exodus, the Conquest of Canaan, the obscure period of the Judges, and the completion of Solomon’s Temple. In so doing, Rebooting the Bible, identifies a much earlier timeline for these foundational events revealing the correct dates the untainted Bible reveals.
The book explains how the Greek Old Testament was created in Alexandria, Egypt from 280 BC to 130 BC, and why it consistently provides a more authentic rendering of the original Hebrew Bible (the “autographs”) than the Hebrew Bible of today. Because the Old Testament (the Hebrew Bible) as well as the Protestant Bibles (e.g., the King James Bible, the New International Version, New American Standard Version, etc.) are based on the Masoretic Text behind the Hebrew Bible, the power of the original prophecies as presented in the Old Testament have been compromised.
Rebooting the Bible makes the case for why the Protestant and Catholic Church must include readings from the Septuagint to rediscover the original wording of the Bible. Finally, Rebooting the Bible supports the position that Egyptology and Mesopotamian Archaeology can be better reconciled with the biblical text of the Septuagint, overcoming typical objections to its truth, strengthening the case for the Christian faith, and establishing the inspiration of the Bible.
Rebooting the Bible Volume 2
Revealing Why the Septuagints’ Authentic Chronology From Adam to Abraham Aligns Genesis’ Primeval History With the Archaeology of Ancient Mesopotamia and Egypt
REBOOTING THE BIBLE PART 2 shows how the original timeline of the Greek Septuagint (LXX, translated from a Hebrew text 400 years older than that used in the Masoretic Text – MT) dramatically revises the traditional stories of Eden, Adam and Eve, the Fall, the Descent of the Watchers, the Flood, the Tower of Babel, Nimrod, the dispersal of humanity after the Flood, and the “division of the nations” at the time of Peleg.
These revisions do not change the text of the infallible Scripture; rather, they reverse myths and falsehoods from non-canonical works like the books of Jasher and Jubilees. Likewise, Woodward reiterates the corruptions from second-century rabbis who altered Messianic passages and the chronologies of Genesis 5 and 11, addressing problems posed when secular and sacred histories are compared.
Woodward reprises the evidence for the accuracy and authenticity of the Septuagint’s timeline in Part 2. But Part 2 goes well beyond Part 1, walking the reader through the ancient accounts in Genesis 1-11, explaining how these familiar stories should be understood. What is the underlying problem? The LXX adds back 1,500 years taken out of the chronology of the MT used in our Protestant Bibles. Some Examples: Adam and Eve were created in 5500 B.C. (and not 4000 B.C.), the Flood of Noah happened 1,000 years earlier than the Protestant Bible says (circa 3360 B.C. instead of 2348 B.C.), the Tower of Babel 900 years earlier (circa 3100 B.C. instead of 2200 B.C.) and why Nimrod’s father, not Nimrod, led the rebellion at Babel. Fixing these issues in the MT rightly aligns the Bible with secular archeology from Mesopotamia and Egypt, and resolves some of the most difficult challenges surfaced by secular science.
“In Part 2 of Rebooting the Bible, to his credit, Doug doesn’t shy away from the weird parts of the Torah either—Nimrod, Noah, and the “sons of God” from Genesis 6:1-4, progenitors of the monstrous, giant Nephilim—are all considered and addressed with scholarly analysis. And for an encore, he tackles how to reconcile alternate history, made familiar in best-selling books, YouTube, and the History Channel, with Genesis Chapter 1.”
The Septuagint Bible
Tom Horn has assembled a wonderful collection of the ancient church father’s timely writings. While not inspired Scripture, they do provide a great look into the early church and what they believed, some of it downright prophetic in a premillennial way! This apocryphal and pseudepigraphal literature sheds light on early Judaism and the early church, many times corroborating and enhancing the biblical account with great insights.
The highlights of Volume 1 includes the oft-examined books of Enoch, Jasher, Maccabees and Jubilees (plus many more), all chock-full of fascinating reading on the fallen angels, the mysterious death of Moses and Joshua’s Long Day.
Volume 2 contains many revered historians and theologians including Justin Martyr, Polycarp (a pupil of the Apostle John), Clement, Irenaeus, and Barnabas.
Volume 3 (Featured here) is an English translation of the Greek Septuagint, translated directly from the Hebrew Old Testament. Volume 3 also includes the Apocrypha. This was likely the Bible referenced and used in New Testament times by Jesus and His disciples, the Apostle Paul and the Apostolic Fathers.
