If I'm not mistaken, the LXX Greek translation came after Jesus time,here on Earth.The Bible does not say if Jesus or his disciples owned personal copies of Bible scrolls. However, there is no question that Jesus was well-versed in the Scriptures, able to allude to or recite the Scriptures by heart. (Matthew 4:4, 7, 10; 19:4, 5) Should this not motivate us today to become well-acquainted with the Bible, since it is generally so affordable and so readily available?

The quotations from the Septuagint in the New Testament seem to indicate that the Septuagint was widely used among Jesus, his disciples, and the areas into which early Christianity spread. The quotes in the NT from the OT agree much more with the LXX than with the Tanakh.
