Chapter Summary

The formulation of a theology is not the exclusive right of students of the Hebrew Bible/Old Testament. There are, broadly speaking, two approaches to this issue: some scholars have a maximalist approach, whereas others are more sceptical and can be deemed to be minimalists. As a matter of fact, the differences between these approaches seem to be rooted in questions of methodology. This chapter therefore concentrates on methodological issues and addresses the following issues: (1) definitions as to what is understood by the term theology; (2) a suitable methodological paradigm for interpreting the LXX; (3) the role of the translation technique followed by individual translators in the interpretation of the LXX; (4) sample texts from the book of Proverbs will be analysed in order to demonstrate relevant theological perspectives.

Keywords: LXX; Septuagint; theology
