It has been argued that it is a Christian addition to the LXX in order to bring the genealogy in Genesis in line with Luke. What is the evidence for this? Do we have any pre-Christian Greek evidence for these passages?
      For what it is worth: there are Old Latin manuscript with and without
      Kainan in Genesis 11. Vulgate is uniform in rejecting Kainan.
