Just as today there are many versions of the Christian Bible -- each choosing different words to translate the Scripture for diverse audiences -- there were different versions of the Hebrew Bible in the three centuries before Christ, Rydelnick said. However, when Protestant reformers turned away from the Latin Bible of the Roman Catholic Church to re-translate the Old Testament, Rydelnick noted that they accepted a version of the Hebrew Bible that had been influenced for centuries by rabbis who wanted to obscure the Messianic message in the Scripture. [emphasis mine]For another likely example, see my earlier post.
