In addition, although the Christian old testament is also based on the text of masula, it inherits the Greek bible in order, ending with the book of prophets, which is different from the tradition of ending with the book of Chronicles in the jewish tanah. At the same time, the old testament included the Dead Sea scrolls, the septuagint, and other ancient texts in addition to the mathura texts. In addition, the Catholic and orthodox bibles also include the letters of Jeremiah, the biography of esther, and the book of danil, which are more than the book of esther and the book of Daniel.
Around 380 AD, the early Catholic church reached an agreement on what books should be included in the bible through rigorous verification. According to the preface of the New International Version of the most popular modern English Version of the Christian bible, “although the mathura text is the latest to be published, as the Hebrew text of the old testament standard, it is the base text for translation. The Dead Sea scrolls contain earlier Hebrew texts that serve as references to the Samaritan bible and ancient scriptural traditions related to textual errors.”
