The Old Testament (Tanach for the Jews and Septuagint for the Greeks) is considered by Christians as the story of creation. It includes stories related to the creation of the world and the events of the Hebrew people up to 445 BC. C. about.
There are two versions of the Old Testament, which circulated without distinction in the times of Jesus and the apostles:
The Hebrew Canon or Palestinian Canon, written in Hebrew, consists of 39 books. This version excludes the so-called deuterocanonical books.
Alexandrian Canon, version of the Seventy (LXX) or Bible of the Seventy. This version was written in Greek. It contains the Hebrew canon and, in addition, the deuterocanonical books, called apocryphal by the Protestant tradition, such as Tobias, Judith, 1st and 2nd Book of Maccabees, Wisdom, Ecclesiastical and Baruch.
Both canons differ in order, distribution, and titles. The Catholic and Orthodox Churches recognize the Alexandrian canon or version of the Seventy. Churches of Protestant or Lutheran inspiration use the Hebrew canon or the Palestinian canon. In turn, the Coptic Church admits other books, such as the Book of Enoch and the Book of Jubilees.
