In the question of the translation of the Holy Scriptures of the Old Testament from Hebrew into the vernacular Greek for church use he has made dramatic change. The New Testament and the Septuagint have handed down as equivalent written sources of the Christian faith in Greek. Oikonomos provides a rich legacy in the rhetoric field of exegesis, hermeneutics, church history, pastoral theology and the Greek language. The guide of the historical events in the life of Arsinoe suggests that the LXX -Hermeneia was made ​​at the beginning of the reign of Ptolemy II. The attention of the third volume is considered the genetic reasons for the deviations and differences between Hebrew text and LXX Hermeneia. The original text of the chapter is in German.
