Debates between observant Jews and Jewish Christians about which books of what became the Old Testament could be considered as authoritative continued during the first three centuries of the Christian era. Christians could find prophecies in the Greek version of the Septuagint, which they could use to support their views about Jesus and the Virgin Mary. As Christianity moved into the Gentile world, this modified the character of the appeal to ancient Hebrew prophecy, and the dispute would continue for centuries, with local and regional differences long persisting.
