LXX Foundation

I asked a friend of mine who usually ministers to
the Anti-Missionaries who are Jews attempting
to thwart the work of Christian missionaries.

He said the number one mistake that Christians make
when speaking with Jews(scholars) is that the
Christian will site some OT passage and the Jew
will say that is not what the OT says. And so the
Christian loses credibility immediately.

The reason is because the NT writers most often used
the LXX as apposed to the Masoretic text and so
the foundation for determining scriptural references
to the OT is different.

Does this make sense? Please clarify.
