When was Elohim changed into God?
#1
Does anyone here know when the word Elohim in the bible was changed into the word God?

In the Masoretic Bible, that are written in hebrew, the words Jahveh and Elohim are used. This is known for a long time. Some parts of the bible speak more about Jahveh, that would be spelled JHVH, and sometimes pronounced as Yehovah; Other parts talk about the Elohim. The Elohim is also well know to be many.

In all versions of the bible they have today the words Jahveh and Elohim are changed into the words Lord and God. Including in the Jehova witness's bible version.

Was this change done even before the christian era?
Was the Gnostics aware of this phenomena?

Apparently it does predate the Christian era, as the Septuagint usually translates Elohim as “Theos”.

Thanks. That is good information.

It might even be there it all happened.
Elohim is used in the Tanakh, the jewish bible. 70 jewish scholars were commissioned at 300 BC to translate Tanakh into Greek, where Elohim turns up as Theos. 

Septuagint - What is It?
