"Now was this the case during the first and second centuries CE, .... 
What did the "Hebrew Bible" of the time include? Unfortunately, we 
have only partial information."

 The information is indeed partial, but there are some distinct
   guides: the numerous biblical quotations in the Mishnah 
  -- redacted about 200 CE --  all consist of consonantal verses of what
   eventually became known as the MT when vocalization 
  was added.
   
    One can conclude with a high degree of certainty that that was
  the official text of the Jewish community already then.
