Greek: The original Translation
Christian Greek translation it was one of the earliest biblical languages to be translated into many bible versions. The ancients translated the revelation of God’s Holy Spirit into Greek. 2 Timothy 3:16 says “All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness.” That being said our translators at Christian-Translation.com take this command in Timothy very seriously when it comes to translating your specific Christian Greek translation pieces.

http://www.historyworld.net/wrldhis/PlainTextHistories.asp?gtrack=pthc&ParagraphID=dgg#dgg gives a rich tradition of Christian Greek translation works. Jews of Alexandria, completed the translation of the Hebrew Old Testament into Koine Greek which is known famously as “The Septuagint.” which derives from the Latin for “seventy.” According to legend 72 scholars, in Alexandria, 6 each from the 12 tribes of Israel. Translated the Hebrew Old Testament into Greek and their versions were all identical thus proving the direct hand of God on their projects. This information came from http://www.historyworld.net/wrldhis/PlainTextHistories.asp?historyid=058 this site also records that the Torah or Pentateuch which these new Greek scrolls were translated from kept these same names from the original Hebrew texts. This work went on for a very long time starting in the 3rd century BC and was finished in the second century. This Greek version of the Old Testament was used by the early Christians who also had the New Testament in Greek.
In Origen’s work “The Hexapla” (from the Greek word six fold) he took six versions of the Old Testament and put them side by side in parallel form. He did this so it would be easy for Christians to study the various versions. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hexapla tells more of this masterpiece by Origen. He accomplished this work sometime before the year 240CE. He basically made a version of the Old Testament in Greek. He placed his versions side by side in this order:
- Secunda-Hebrew transliterated into Greek characters
- Aquila of Sinope
- 4. Symmachus the Ebionite
- A recension of the Septuagint-basically Origen edited this Hebrew text based on Critical Analysis
This is how Origen originally put together his masterful work “The Hexpla”. So don’t forget to get in touch with us at Christian-Translation.com to meet all your translation needs.
