Was Jesus a Single-Versionist? While on earth as a man, He very well coulda been. The version from which He read aloud in Luke 4 was familiar to Him and His audience. It was apparently the 'official' version of that synagogue. Most of the NT quotes of the OT appear to closely match the readings of the LXX, including those made after Jesus had returned to heaven. We had a thread earlier in which I asked if anyone could identify any one ms or set of mss that mighta been the one Jesus read from, but no one could pinpoint any certain one. I believe we can rule out that it was the Ben Chayyim Masoretic Text from which the KJV's OT was translated. I've seen no evidence that Jesus used any other version save the one He read from in Luke 4.
