I want to know because I read the Old Testament in the Protestant Christian Bible it's a New International Version.

I mostly want to know if any one Changed the meaning of any thing in any of the books that are now in the Christian Old Testament,
So please if their's a Rabi out their that knows a lot about Judaism and Christianity then please help me.

I need a Jew who knows a lot about Christianity but isn't a Christian so I know their not deceiving me.

I'm a Researcher who studies world Religion's.
Not just Western ones either.

The Hebrew Bible is the Tanakh, an acronym deriving from the Hebrew words for Law, Prophets and Writings, the three sections. The Torah is just the Law, the counterpart of the first five books of the Christian Old Testament.

The Christian Old Testament derives ultimately from the Septuagint, a Greek version of the Hebrew sciptures that would later become the canonical Tanakh. (The Hebrew scriptures became the Tanakh, that is.) The Septuagint was intended for use by Jews of the Diaspora who no longer were fluent in Hebrew. Even at the time of Jesus, there were noticeable differences between the Septuagint and the writings it was derived from, although the Torah was the best represented.

There are of course many versions in numerous languages of the Christian Old Testament deriving from a variety of old manuscripts and translated in various styles. But the only authoratative Tanakh is in Hebrew.

Yes. The main difference is that the torah contains the first five books of the old testament. The Tenakh (Tanakh) however contains all the same books as the old testament and also contains the torah.

What Types of Jewish Denominations are there and what makes them different?
For example in Christianity:
We have Gnostics, Catholics, Protestants, Orthodox, and Mormon.
Most Christians are either Protestant or Catholic.

It doesn't contain the Deuterocanonicals, they took that out during the 1st or 2nd century.

About the different versions of Judaism, there are Orthodox, Reform, Conservative, and Hasidic. There are also a few minor ones, but those are relatively unimportant to these four.

to get down the real real answer to the question. there are no changes to the Torah/Old Testament. The only true difference between them is that Jews interpret it as directly through God while Christians take the OT and interpret it in terms of how it illuminates Christ/Christ-like principles.
