Old Testament based on the Septuagint, which we know from recorded 
history existed in its current form in 250BC, translated from Hebrew 
sources at the command of the Greek ruler of Egypt.

Jewish texts cannot be reliably dated to earlier than about 600AD.  For 
all we know some random bunch of people reinvented Judaism around six or 
seven hundred AD, except insofar as their texts have much in common with 
the Septuagint.
