What ended up in the[(mythical bc translation) or equally mythical 3rd c. CE rendition ] final version is multiple interpretations, corrections, chapters ending at the wrong place and hundred-thousands of mistakes.<quoted text>
And what ended up in the Old Testament?(As my people referred to it..)
(The rest of your post is interesting but over my pay grade...thanks for commenting...Frijoles can handle it..)
So a pre-chewed interpretation. Books were only written for nobility.
The whole only appeared at a very late date. Before that time we only find part translations.
And it is reasonable and ever more likely that early versions are actually bound versions of various centuries.
The most Obvious is of course the ' one-god ' introduction and the interpretations allready provided.(getting it immensely wrong, which is strange*)
The essense of the hebrew version is that many interpretations are possible, the more found the more kudos.
*So let's say they find 26 reasonable interpretations, nevertheless the christians will come up with the odd-bal and can't find the options for the others in their variant version.
Apropos tax: those that not paid it were called atheists.
So jews were not atheists.
