Almost lost over the centuries, the Book of Jubilees was retrieved from the Ethiopic language, translated into English by R. H. Charles, and was recently found among the Dead Sea Scrolls.

    The Book of Jubilees is also called the Little Genesis, Book of Divisions, and the Apocalypse of Moses.

   It repeats the events of Genesis and Exodus from Creation to the Exodus of the Children of Israel from Egypt.

   It recounts the events in sets of jubilees (sets of 49 years) and gives additional details such as the fall of the angels, and the creation and destruction of the Nephilim.

Joshua 10:13 And the sun stood still, and the moon stayed, until the people had avenged themselves upon their enemies. Is not this written in the book of Jasher? So the sun stood still in the midst of heaven, and hasted not to go down about a whole day.

2 Samuel 1:18 (Also he bade them teach the children of Judah the use of the bow: behold, it is written in the book of Jasher.)

This text covers much of the same ground as the traditional Mosaic books of the Bible, from the creation of the world to the death of Moses, albeit with several minor variations.

Many Christians will reject books such as Jubilees, Josephus and Jasher.

However any book mentioned twice in the Bible has good references. The writer of the book of Joshua knew about it.. The writer of 2 Samuel mentions it.

Question: Does it follow that The Book of Jasher is as old as Joshua and 2 Samuel?

Question: Are any other books in the public library mentioned in the Bible?

Question: Do you reject Jubilees and Jasher while reading books other than the Bible?

There are 13 ancient history books that are mentioned and recommended by the Bible. The Ancient Book of Jasher is the only one of the 13 that still exists. It is referenced in Joshua 10:13; 2 Samuel 1:18; and 2 Timothy 3:8.

Antiquities of the Jews

Titus Flavius Josephus was a first-century  scholar, historian and hagiographer, who was born in Jerusalem—then part of Roman Judea—to a father of priestly descent and a mother who claimed royal ancestry.

He initially fought against the Romans during the First Jewish–Roman War as head of Jewish forces in Galilee, until surrendering in 67 to Roman forces led by Vespasian after the six-week siege of Jotapata.

Josephus claims the Jewish Messianic prophecies that initiated the First Roman-Jewish War made reference to Vespasian becoming Emperor of Rome. In response Vespasian decided to keep Josephus as a hostage and interpreter.

After Vespasian did become Emperor in 69, he granted Josephus his freedom, at which time Josephus assumed the emperor's family name of Flavius.

Flavius Josephus fully defected to the Roman side and was granted Roman citizenship. He became an advisor and friend of Vespasian's son Titus, serving as his translator when Titus led the Siege of Jerusalem, which resulted—when the Jewish revolt did not surrender to the Roman Police action.

Titus is blamed for the destruction of the temple in Jerusalem. Josephus reports that Jews, fighting among themselves, set fire to the temple. Titus army tried to put the fire out.

Examples of the two or three witness rule in both the Old and New Testaments.
The Book of Jasher is mentioned twice in the Bible.

Deuteronomy 17:6. At the mouth of two witnesses, or three witnesses, shall he that is worthy of death be put to death; but at the mouth of one witness he shall not be put to death.

Matthew 18:16. But if he will not hear thee, then take with thee one or two more, that in the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established.
20. For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.

2 Corinthians 13:1. This is the third time I am coming to you. In the mouth of two or three witnesses shall every word be established.


Moses Goes to School.

Tradition credits Moses as the author of Genesis, as well as Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and most of Deuteronomy. The question is, when did he write these books and where did Moses get his information? The answer begins in Exodus.

Exodus 24:18.
And Moses went into the midst of the cloud, and gat him up into the mount: and Moses was in the mount forty days and forty nights.

Exodus 34:28. And he was there with the LORD forty days and forty nights; he did neither eat bread, nor drink water. And he wrote upon the tables the words of the covenant, the ten commandments.

In Deuteronomy we find that Moses went into the mount twice for forty days.

 Deuteronomy 9
9.
When I was gone up into the mount to receive the tables of stone, even the tables of the covenant which the LORD made with you, then I abode in the mount forty days and forty nights, I neither did eat bread nor drink water:
11. And it came to pass at the end of forty days and forty nights, that the LORD gave me the two tables of stone, even the tables of the covenant.
18. And I fell down before the LORD, as at the first, forty days and forty nights: I did neither eat bread, nor drink water, because of all your sins which ye sinned, in doing wickedly in the sight of the LORD, to provoke him to anger.

25. Thus I fell down before the LORD forty days and forty nights, as I fell down at the first; because the LORD had said he would destroy you.

Deuteronomy 10
10. And I stayed in the mount, according to the first time, forty days and forty nights; and the LORD hearkened unto me at that time also, and the LORD would not destroy thee.

So what took place in the mount during those forty days? The answer. Moses went to school. We can read about Moses instruction in both Jubilees and Jasher.

The Introduction in Jubilees Chapter 1 & 2
 

Jubilees Chapter 1 & 2 - Introduction
Moses receives the tables of the law and instruction on past and future history which he is to inscribe in a book.

Jubilees Chapter 1.

1. And it came to pass in the first year of the exodus of the children of Israel out of Egypt, in the third month, on the sixteenth day of the month*, that God spake to Moses, saying: 'Come up to Me on the Mount, and I will give thee two tables of stone of the law and of the commandment, which I have written, that thou mayst teach them.'

*Comment: All important Bible events took place on or near the Bible Holidays listed in Exodus. Click here a study of the Bible Holidays.  For example,  The Ten Commandments were given on Pentecost.

2. And Moses went up into the mount of God, and the glory of the Lord abode on Mount Sinai, and a cloud overshadowed it six days.

3. And He called to Moses on the seventh day out of the midst of the cloud, and the appearance of the glory of the Lord was like a flaming fire on the top of the mount.

Moses went INTO the mount of God. Was this a cave or something else? The 'Glory of the Lord' was ON Mount Sinai. What was the 'Glory of the Lord'? For a possible explanation click here.

God's School

4. And Moses was on the Mount forty days and forty nights, and God taught him the earlier and the later history of the division of all the days of the law and of the testimony.

God, knowing the end from the beginning, tells Moses what will take place in the future. See Deuteronomy 28 as explained here. 

See also "The Song of Moses" - an explanation of Deuteronomy 32.

The Future Apostasy of Israel

5. And He said: 'Incline thine heart to every word which I shall speak to thee on this mount, and write them in a book in order that their generations may see how I have not forsaken them for all the evil which they have wrought in transgressing the covenant which I establish between Me and thee for their generations this day on Mount Sinai.

6. And thus it will come to pass when all these things come upon them,* that they will recognize that I am more righteous than they in all their judgments and in all their actions, and they will recognize that I have been truly with them.

7. And do thou write for thyself all these words which I declare unto, thee this day, for I know their rebellion and their stiff neck, before I bring them into the land of which I sware to their fathers, to Abraham and to Isaac and to Jacob, saying: ' Unto your seed will I give a land flowing with milk and honey.

8. And they will eat and be satisfied, and they will turn to strange gods, to (gods) which cannot deliver them from aught of their tribulation: and this witness shall be heard for a witness against them. For they will forget all My commandments, (even) all that I command them, and they will walk after the Gentiles, and after their uncleanness, and after their shame, and will serve their gods, and these will prove unto them an offence and a tribulation and an affliction and a snare.

Jubilees Chapter 1 continued.

9. And many will perish and they will be taken captive, and will fall into the hands of the enemy, because they have forsaken My ordinances and My commandments, and the festivals of My covenant, and My Sabbaths, and My holy place which I have hallowed for Myself in their midst, and My tabernacle, and My sanctuary, which I have hallowed for Myself in the midst of the land, that I should set my name upon it, and that it should dwell (there).

Captivity of Israel and Judah

10. And they will make to themselves high places and groves and graven images, and they will worship, each his own (graven image), so as to go astray, and they will sacrifice their children to demons, and to all the works of the error of their hearts.

11. And I will send witnesses unto them, that I may witness against them, but they will not hear, and will slay the witnesses also, and they will persecute those who seek the law, and they will abrogate and change everything so as to work evil before My eyes.

12. And I will hide My face from them, and I will deliver them into the hand of the Gentiles for captivity, and for a prey, and for devouring, and I will remove them from the midst of the land, and I will scatter them amongst the Gentiles.
 
13. And they will forget all My law and all My commandments and all My judgments,* and will go astray as to new moons, and sabbaths, and festivals, and jubilees, and ordinances.

* The law is done away in Jesus doctrine.

Jubilees Chapter 1 continued.

14. And after this they will turn to Me from amongst the Gentiles with all their heart and with all their soul and with all their strength, and I will gather them from amongst all the Gentiles, and they will seek me, so that I shall be found of them, when they seek me with all their heart and with all their soul.

The Return and rebuilding of the temple.

15. And I will disclose to them abounding peace with righteousness, and I will remove them the plant of uprightness, with all My heart and with all My soul, and they shall be for a blessing and not for a curse, and they shall be the head and not the tail.

16. And I will build My sanctuary in their midst, and I will dwell with them, and I will be their God and they shall be My people in truth and righteousness.

17. And I will not forsake them nor fail them; for I am the Lord their God.'

18. And Moses fell on his face and prayed and said, 'O Lord my God, do not forsake Thy people and Thy inheritance, so that they should wander in the error of their hearts, and do not deliver them into the hands of their enemies, the Gentiles, lest they should rule over them and cause them to sin against Thee.

Moses' prayer for Israel.

19. Let thy mercy, O Lord, be lifted up upon Thy people, and create in them an upright spirit, and let not the spirit of Beliar rule over them to accuse them before Thee, and to ensnare them from all the paths of righteousness, so that they may perish from before Thy face.

20. But they are Thy people and Thy inheritance, which thou hast delivered with thy great power from the hands of the Egyptians: create in them a clean heart and a holy spirit, and let them not be ensnared in their sins from henceforth until eternity.

21. And the Lord said unto Moses: 'I know their contrariness and their thoughts and their stiffneckedness, and they will not be obedient till they confess their own sin and the sin of their fathers.

God's promise to redeem and dwell with them.

22. And after this they will turn to Me in all uprightness and with all (their) heart and with all (their) soul, and I will circumcise the foreskin of their heart and the foreskin of the heart of their seed, and I will create in them a holy spirit, and I will cleanse them so that they shall not turn away from Me from that day unto eternity.

23. And their souls will cleave to Me and to all My commandments, and they will fulfill My commandments, and I will be their Father and they shall be My children.

24. And they all shall be called children of the living God, and every angel and every spirit shall know, yea, they shall know that these are My children, and that I am their Father in uprightness and righteousness, and that I love them.

25. And do thou write down for thyself all these words which I declare unto thee on this mountain, the first and the last, which shall come to pass in all the divisions of the days in the law and in the testimony and in the weeks and the jubilees unto eternity, until I descend and dwell with them throughout eternity.'

An angel Helps Moses Write a History Book.

26. And He said to the angel of the presence: Write for Moses from the beginning of creation till My sanctuary has been built among them for all eternity.

And an angel to write down the law.

27. And the Lord will appear to the eyes of all, and all shall know that I am the God of Israel and the Father of all the children of Jacob, and King on Mount Zion for all eternity.
 And Zion and Jerusalem shall be holy.'

This angel takes the heavenly chronological tablets to dictate there from to Moses.

28. And the angel of the presence who went before the camp of Israel took the tables of the divisions of the years - from the time of the creation- of the law and of the testimony of the weeks of the jubilees, according to the individual years, according to all the number of the jubilees [according, to the individual years], from the day of the [new] creation when the heavens and the earth shall be renewed and all their creation according to the powers of the heaven, and according to all the creation of the earth, until the sanctuary of the Lord shall be made in Jerusalem on Mount Zion, and all the luminaries be renewed for healing and for peace and for blessing for all the elect of Israel, and that thus it may be from that day and unto all the days of the earth.
 

Jubilees, Chapter 2 - Moses Education while in the Mount 40 Days Continued.

The history of the acts of creation on the six days.

An angel speaks to Moses summarizing Israel's history from Adam to the present.

1. And the angel of the presence spake to Moses according to the word of the Lord, saying:

Write the complete history of the creation, how in six days the Lord God finished all His works and all that He created, and kept Sabbath on the seventh day and hallowed it for all ages, and appointed it as a sign for all His works.

< Did the Sabbath exist before or after the giving of the Ten Commandments at Sinai?

[  ] Before.     [  ] After.

Is Jubilees 2:1 is God telling Moses to write Genesis?

An angel speaks to Moses summarizing Israel's history from Adam to the present.

2. For on the first day He created the heavens which are above and the earth and the waters and all the spirits which serve before him - the angels of the presence, and the angels of sanctification, and the angels [of the spirit of fire and the angels] of the spirit of the winds, and the angels of the spirit of the clouds, and of darkness, and of snow and of hail and of hoar frost, and the angels of the voices and of the thunder and of the lightning, and the angels of the spirits of cold and of heat, and of winter and of spring and of autumn and of summer and of all the spirits of his creatures which are in the heavens and on the earth, (He created) the abysses and the darkness, eventide <and night>, and the light, dawn and day, which He hath prepared in the knowledge of his heart

3. And thereupon we saw His works, and praised Him, and lauded before Him on account of all His works; for seven great works did He create on the first day.

What are the seven great works?

Jubilees, Chapter 2 Continued.

4. And on the second day He created the firmament in the midst of the waters, and the waters were divided on that day - half of them went up above and half of them went down below the firmament (that was) in the midst over the face of the whole earth.

And this was the only work (God) created on the second day.

An angel speaks to Moses summarizing Israel's history from Adam to the present.

5. And on the third day He commanded the waters to pass from off the face of the whole earth into one place, and the dry land to appear.

6. And the waters did so as He commanded them, and they retired from off the face of the earth into one place outside of this firmament, and the dry land appeared.

7. And on that day He created for them all the seas according to their separate gathering-places, and all the rivers, and the gatherings of the waters in the mountains and on all the earth, and all the lakes, and all the dew of the earth, and the seed which is sown, and all sprouting things, and fruit-bearing trees, and trees of the wood, and the garden of Eden, in Eden and all plants after their kind.

8. These four great works God created on the third day. And on the fourth day He created the sun and the moon and the stars, and set them in the firmament of the heaven, to give light upon all the earth, and to rule over the day and the night, and divide the light from the darkness.

Jubilees Chapter 2 continued.

An angel speaks to Moses summarizing Israel's history from Adam to the present.

9. And God appointed the sun to be a great sign on the earth for days and for sabbaths and for months and for feasts and for years and for sabbaths of years and for jubilees and for all seasons of the years.

10. And it divideth the light from the darkness [and] for prosperity, that all things may prosper which shoot and grow on the earth.

11. These three kinds He made on the fourth day. And on the fifth day He created great sea monsters in the depths of the waters, for these were the first things of flesh that were created by his hands, the fish and everything that moves in the waters, and everything that flies, the birds and all their kind.

12. And the sun rose above them to prosper (them), and above everything that was on the earth, everything that shoots out of the earth, and all fruit-bearing trees, and all flesh.

13. These three kinds He created on the fifth day. And on the sixth day He created all the animals of the earth, and all cattle, and everything that moves on the earth.

An angel speaks to Moses summarizing Israel's history from Adam to the present.

14. And after all this He created man, a man and a woman created He them, and gave him dominion over all that is upon the earth, and in the seas, and over everything that flies, and over beasts and over cattle, and over everything that moves on the earth, and over the whole earth, and over all this He gave him dominion.

Jubilees Chapter 2 continued.

15. And these four kinds He created on the sixth day. And there were altogether two and twenty kinds.

16. And He finished all his work on the sixth day -all that is in the heavens and on the earth, and in the seas and in the abysses, and in the light and in the darkness, and in everything.

Institution of the Sabbath: its observance by the angels, with whom Israel is afterwards to be associated.

17. And He gave us a great sign, the Sabbath day, that we should work six days, but keep Sabbath on the seventh day from all work.

18. And all the angels of the presence, and all the angels of sanctification, these two great classes - He hath bidden us to keep the Sabbath with Him in heaven and on earth.

19. And He said unto us: 'Behold, I will separate unto Myself a people from among all the peoples, and these shall keep the Sabbath day, and I will sanctify them unto Myself as My people, and will bless them; as I have sanctified the Sabbath day and do sanctify (it) unto Myself, even so will I bless them, and they shall be My people and I will be their God.

20. And I have chosen the seed of Jacob from amongst all that I have seen, and have written him down as My first-born son, and have sanctified him unto Myself for ever and ever; and I will teach them the Sabbath day, that they may keep Sabbath thereon from all work.'

21. And thus He created therein a sign in accordance with which they should keep Sabbath with us on the seventh day*, to eat and to drink, and to bless Him who has created all things as He has blessed and sanctified unto Himself a peculiar people above all peoples, and that they should keep Sabbath together with us.

22. And He caused His commands to ascend as a sweet savor acceptable before Him all the days . . .

23. There (were) two and twenty heads of mankind from Adam to Jacob, and two and twenty kinds of work were made until the seventh day; this is blessed and holy; and the former also is blessed and holy; and this one serves with that one for sanctification and blessing.

24. And to this (Jacob and his seed) it was granted that they should always be the blessed and holy ones of the first testimony and law, even as He had sanctified and blessed the Sabbath day on the seventh day.

25. He created heaven and earth and everything that He created in six days, and God made the seventh day holy, for all His works; therefore He commanded on its behalf that, whoever does any work thereon shall die, and that he who defiles it shall surely die.

26. Wherefore do thou command the children of Israel to observe this day that they may keep it holy and not do thereon any work, and not to defile it, as it is holier than all other days.

27. And whoever profanes it shall surely die, and whoever does thereon any work shall surely die eternally, that the children of Israel may observe this day throughout their generations, and not be rooted out of the land; for it is a holy day and a blessed day.

28. And every one who observes it and keeps Sabbath thereon from all his work, will be holy and blessed throughout all days like unto us.

29. Declare and say to the children of Israel the law* of this day both that they should keep Sabbath thereon, and that they should not forsake it in the error of their hearts; (and) that it is not lawful to do any work thereon which is unseemly, to do thereon their own pleasure, and that they should not prepare thereon anything to be eaten or drunk, and (that it is not lawful) to draw water, or bring in or take out thereon through their gates any burden, which they had not prepared for themselves on the sixth day in their dwellings.

30. And they shall not bring in nor take out from house to house on that day; for that day is more holy and blessed than any jubilee day of the jubilees; on this we kept Sabbath in the heavens before it was made known to any flesh to keep Sabbath thereon on the earth.

* Comment: Here we have the Fourth Commandment before the commandments were given on Mt Sinai.

Where was the Sabbath first?
    
[  ] In Heaven.
  
  [  ] On the Earth.
   
 [  ] At the giving of the Commandments at Sinai.

31. And the Creator of all things blessed it, but he did not sanctify all peoples and nations to keep Sabbath thereon, but Israel alone: them alone he permitted to eat and drink and to keep Sabbath thereon on the earth.

32. And the Creator of all things blessed this day which He had created for blessing and holiness and glory above all days.

33. This law and testimony was given to the children of Israel as a law for ever unto their generations.

 How long is the Sabbath to be observed?
     [  ] Until the law was to be done away by Jesus.
     [  ] Until changed to Sunday,  the first day of the week.
     [  ] For ever.

The Seven Days of Creation

Day One  - Prepare the heavens. Day and night.

Genesis, Chapter 1.

1. In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

2. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.

3. And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.

4. And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.

5. And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.

Comment:

In verse 1 is it heaven or heavens?
    
(  ) Heaven.
   
 (  ) Heavens.

What do you think the heaven created was?

     (  ) The entire universe?
   
  (  ) The galaxy?
    
(  ) The Solar System?
    
(  ) The sky over the Earth?

The Genesis Conflict

Prof. Walter Veith

Creation or Evolution? In the war of words and ideas  THEY, the accusers, always use the term Creationism.

 ISM: a distinctive doctrine, cause, or theory. an oppressive and especially discriminatory attitude or belief.

Examples of ISM, Racism, sexism, and all the other familiar isms. Creationism.

Perhaps we should play the same, put-down word game and call their evolutionary point of view, Evolutionism?

  Josephus Chapter 1.

In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. But when the earth did not come into sight, but was covered with thick darkness, and a wind moved upon its surface, God commanded that there should be light:

and when that was made, he considered the whole mass, and separated the light and the darkness;

and the name he gave to one was Night, and the other he called Day:

and he named the beginning of light, and the time of rest,

The Evening and The Morning, and this was indeed the first day.

But Moses said it was one day; the cause of which I am able to give even now; but because I have promised to give such reasons for all things in a treatise by itself, I shall put off its exposition till that time.

Day 2 - Prepare the waters, clouds, seas, atmosphere.

Genesis, Chapter 1 Continued.

6. And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.
7. And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so.
8. And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day.

Good Humor Department

Surgeon: I believe the medical profession is the first profession mentioned in the Bible. God made Eve by carving a rib out of Adam.

Engineer: No, engineering came first. Just think of the engineering job it was to make things out of chaos.

Politician: That's nothing. Who do you think started chaos?

  Josephus Chapter 1 Continued.

After this, on the second day, he placed the heaven over the whole world, and separated it from the other parts, and he determined it should stand by itself.

He also placed a crystalline [firmament] round it, and put it together in a manner agreeable to the earth, and fitted it for giving moisture and rain, and for affording the advantage of dews.

 

Day 3 - Prepare the land. Make land dry. Plant food crops and fruit trees.

Genesis, Chapter 1 Continued.

9. And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so.
10. And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good.
11. And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so.
12. And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good.
13. And the evening and the morning were the third day.

    Josephus Chapter 1 Continued.

On the third day he appointed the dry land to appear, with the sea itself round about it; and on the very same day he made the plants and the seeds to spring out of the earth.

 

Day 4. Fill the Heavens. Sun, moon and stars.

14. And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:*

*Comment:
    
Signs = Signs of the Zodiac.
     Seasons = Summer, Fall Winter and Spring.
     Days =Days.
     Years = Years.
     Nothing here for Months.


15. And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so.
16. And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also.*

17. And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth,
18. And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good.
19. And the evening and the morning were the fourth day.

*Comment: It is often thought that the 'lesser light is the Moon. But the moon is not always in the night sky. You can look up to the sky many times and see both the Sun and the Moon. Some believe that, at that time our sun was part of a binary star system meaning we had two suns.  You can check it out for yourself here. Solar Bibnaria by Alfred De Grazia

Solar Binaria

  Josephus Chapter 1 Continued.

On the fourth day he adorned the heaven with the sun, the moon, and the other stars, and appointed them their motions and courses, that the vicissitudes of the seasons might be clearly signified.

 

Day 5. Fill the water with fish life and the air with bird life.

Genesis, Chapter 1 Continued.

20. And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven.
21. And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good.
22. And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth.
23. And the evening and the morning were the fifth day.

    Josephus Chapter 1 Continued.

And on the fifth day he produced the living creatures, both those that swim, and those that fly; the former in the sea, the latter in the air: he also sorted them as to society and mixture, for procreation, and that their kinds might increase and multiply.

 

Day 6. Fill the land with animal life. Day three food supply made ready for animals.

Genesis, Chapter 1 Continued.

24. And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so.
25. And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good.

Man Created

26. And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
27. So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
28. And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.
29. And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.
30. And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so.
31. And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.

"Adam must have been a happy guy - he didn't have a mother-in law."

"Adam had no mother-in-law. That is how we are sure he lived in paradise."

Book of Jasher, Chapter 1.

1 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness, and God created man in his own image.

2 And God formed man from the ground, and he blew into his nostrils the breath of life, and man became a living soul endowed with speech.

3 And the Lord said, It is not good for man to be alone; I will make unto him a helpmeet.

4 And the Lord caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept, and he took away one of his ribs, and he built flesh upon it, and formed it and brought it to Adam, and Adam awoke from his sleep, and behold a woman was standing before him.

5 And he said, This is a bone of my bones and it shall be called woman, for this has been taken from man; and Adam called her name Eve, for she was the mother of all living.

6 And God blessed them and called their names Adam and Eve in the day that he created them, and the Lord God said, Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth.

Josephus Chapter 1 Continued.

On the sixth day he created the four-footed beasts, and made them male and female: on the same day he also formed man.

Accordingly Moses says, That in just six days the world, and all that is therein, was made.

 

 

Genesis 2 - Day 7 - The Sabbath Day

Genesis 2

1. Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them.
2. And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.
3. And God blessed the seventh day*, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made.

4. These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the LORD God made the earth and the heavens,
5. And every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew: for the LORD God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was not a man to till the ground.
6. But there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground.
 

Comment:

Calculating days, weeks, years, Jubilees.

7 days = 1 week.

7 years = 1 Sabbath of years. Our bankruptcy laws trace back to this 7 year cycle. Farmers are to let the fields rest one year in seven.

Leviticus 25

4. But in the seventh year shall be a sabbath of rest unto the land, a sabbath for the LORD: thou shalt neither sow thy field, nor prune thy vineyard.
5. That which groweth of its own accord of thy harvest thou shalt not reap, neither gather the grapes of thy vine undressed: for it is a year of rest unto the land.

Leviticus 26

34. Then shall the land enjoy her Sabbaths, as long as it lieth desolate, and ye be in your enemies' land; even then shall the land rest, and enjoy her Sabbaths.

One Jubilee = 49 years which is = to 7 Sabbaths of years.

Our Liberty Bell has this writing upon it from Leviticus 25:10.

Leviticus 25

10. And ye shall hallow the fiftieth year, and proclaim liberty throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof: it shall be a jubilee unto you; and ye shall return every man unto his possession, and ye shall return every man unto his family.
11. A jubilee shall that fiftieth year be unto you: ye shall not sow, neither reap that which groweth of itself in it, nor gather the grapes in it of thy vine undressed.
12. For it is the jubilee; it shall be holy unto you: ye shall eat the increase thereof out of the field.
13. In the year of this jubilee ye shall return every man unto his possession.
14. And if thou sell ought unto thy neighbor, or buyest ought of thy neighbor's hand, ye shall not oppress one another:
15. According to the number of years after the jubile thou shalt buy of thy neighbor, and according unto the number of years of the fruits he shall sell unto thee:
16. According to the multitude of years thou shalt increase the price thereof, and according to the fewness of years thou shalt diminish the price of it: for according to the number of the years of the fruits doth he sell unto thee.
17. Ye shall not therefore oppress one another; but thou shalt fear thy God: for I am the LORD your God.
18. Wherefore ye shall do my statutes, and keep my judgments, and do them; and ye shall dwell in the land in safety.

The 50th year is a year of Jubilee wherein all debts are to be cancelled. Modern man thinks he knows better so we have a recession every 50 years.

Also we can expect the 1,000 year end time rest to come at the end on 6,000 years following Genesis 1:1.

The 1,000 end time rest is not what most expect. Check this out by viewing an explanation of the Disney movie Wall-E as presented by Little Light Studios. Hint: Wall-E represents Satan left to see what he has done to the Earth. After the 1,000 year rest we have:

Revelation 20

3. And cast him (Wall-E) into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he (Wall-E) must be loosed a little season.
7. And when the thousand years are expired, Satan (Wall-E) shall be loosed out of his prison,

*Comment: There are several different Sabbath days. Different religions calculate different ways.

For Example:
     1. Jews and 7th Day Adventists and some others use Friday Sunset to Sunset.

     2. Catholics and Protestants use Saturday midnight to Sunday midnight.

     3. There is a third way known only to a few and it is the same way as calculated by Moses and still in use at the time of the Crucifixion. It is High Noon Saturday until High Noon on Sunday.

Many Christians actually and unknowingly observe #3 by working half a day on Saturday, Church Sunday morning and watching sports, after the Sabbath has ended at noon, on Sunday afternoon.

Have you ever wondered why Jesus and the Disciples observed the Passover before the Crucifixion and the Jews following the Crucifixion?. Click here for a study of the three Sabbaths.

What you have never been told about the Crucifiction.

 
Josephus Chapter 1 Verse 2 Continued.

 And that the seventh day was a rest, and a release from the labor of such operations; whence it is that we Celebrate a rest from our labors on that day, and call it the Sabbath, which word denotes rest in the Hebrew tongue.

Man Created

7. And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.     Josephus Chapter 1, Verse 2

2. Moreover, Moses, after the seventh day was over begins to talk philosophically; and concerning the formation of man, says thus:

That God took dust from the ground, and formed man, and inserted in him a spirit and a soul.

This man was called Adam, which in the Hebrew tongue signifies one that is red, because he was formed out of red earth, compounded together; for of that kind is virgin and true earth.

God also presented the living creatures, when he had made them, according to their kinds, both male and female, to Adam, who gave them those names by which they are still called.

But when he saw that Adam had no female companion, no society, for there was no such created, and that he wondered at the other animals which were male and female, he laid him asleep, and took away one of his ribs, and out of it formed the woman;

whereupon Adam knew her when she was brought to him, and acknowledged that she was made out of himself.

Now a woman is called in the Hebrew tongue Issa; but the name of this woman was Eve, which signifies the mother of all living.

The Garden of Eden

Genesis 2 Continued.

8. And the LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed.
9. And out of the ground made the LORD God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.
10. And a river went out of Eden to water the garden; and from thence it was parted, and became into four heads.
11. The name of the first is Pison: that is it which compasseth the whole land of Havilah, where there is gold;
12. And the gold of that land is good: there is bdellium and the onyx stone.
13. And the name of the second river is Gihon: the same is it that compasseth the whole land of Ethiopia.
14. And the name of the third river is Hiddekel: that is it which goeth toward the east of Assyria. And the fourth river is Euphrates.
15. And the LORD God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it.
16. And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat:
17. But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.

After the expulsion from the  Garden of Eden, Adam was walking with his sons Cain and Abel.

As they Passed by the ruins of the Garden of Eden, Abel asked, "What's that, Dad?"

Adam replied, "Boys, that's where Your mother ate us out. of house and home"









 

Book of Jasher, Chapter 1.

7 And the Lord God took Adam and his wife, and he placed them in the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it; and he commanded them and said unto them,

From every tree of the garden you may eat, but from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat thereof you shall surely die.

 

Josephus Chapter 1, Verse 3

3. Moses says further, that God planted a paradise in the east, flourishing with all sorts of trees; and that among them was the tree of life, and another of knowledge, whereby was to be known what was good and evil;

and that when he brought Adam and his wife into this garden, he commanded ;hem to take care of the plants.

Now the garden was watered by one river, which ran round about the whole earth, and was parted into four parts.

And Phison, which denotes a multitude, running into India, makes its exit into the sea, and is by the Greeks called Ganges.

Euphrates also, as well as Tigris, goes down into the Red Sea.

Now the name Euphrates, or Phrath, denotes either a dispersion, or a flower: by Tiris, or Diglath, is signified what is swift, with narrowness; and Geon runs through Egypt, and denotes what arises from the east, which the Greeks call Nile.

Naming the Animals

Genesis 2 Continued.

18. And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.
19. And out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof.
20. And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him.

 

Jubilees Chapter 3.

Adam Names all creatures

1. And on the six days of the second week we brought, according to the word of God, unto Adam all the beasts, and all the cattle, and all the birds, and everything that moves on the earth, and everything that moves in the water, according to their kinds, and according to their types: the beasts on the first day;  the cattle on the second day; the birds on the third day; and all that which moves on the earth on the fourth day; and that which moves in the water on the fifth day.

2. And Adam named them all by their respective names, and as he called them, so was their name.

3. And on these five days Adam saw all these, male and female, according to every kind that was on the earth, but he was alone and found no helpmeet for him.

   
 

Eve

 
  God Commands  

Genesis 2 Continued.

21. And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof;
22. And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.
23. And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.
24. Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.
25. And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.

 

Jubilees Chapter 3.

Creation of Eve and enactment of Levitical laws of purification.

4.  And the Lord said unto us: 'It is not good that the man should be alone: let us make a helpmeet for him.

5. And the Lord our God caused a deep sleep to fall upon him, and he slept, and He took for the woman one rib from amongst his ribs, and this rib was the origin of the woman from amongst his ribs, and He built up the flesh in its stead, and built the woman.

6. And He awaked Adam out of his sleep and on awaking he rose on the sixth day, and He brought her to him, and he knew her, and said unto her: 'This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called [my] wife; because she was taken from her husband.'

7. Therefore shall man and wife be one and therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and cleave unto his wife, and they shall be one flesh.

8. In the first week was Adam created, and the rib - his wife: in the second week He showed her unto him: and for this reason the commandment was given to keep in their defilement, for a male seven days, and for a female twice seven days.

9. And after Adam had completed forty days in the land where he had been created, we brought him into the garden of Eden to till and keep it, but his wife they brought in on the eightieth day, and after this she entered into the garden of Eden.

10. And for this reason the commandment is written on the heavenly tablets in regard to her that gives birth: 'if she bears a male, she shall remain in her uncleanness seven days according to the first week of days, and thirty and three days shall she remain in the blood of her purifying, and she shall not touch any hallowed thing, nor enter into the sanctuary, until she accomplishes these days which (are enjoined) in the case of a male child.

11. But in the case of a female child she shall remain in her uncleanness two weeks of days, according to the first two weeks, and sixty-six days in the blood of her purification, and they will be in all eighty days.'

12. And when she had completed these eighty days we brought her into the garden of Eden, for it is holier than all the earth besides and every tree that is planted in it is holy.

13. Therefore, there was ordained regarding her who bears a male or a female child the statute of those days that she should touch no hallowed thing, nor enter into the sanctuary until these days for the male or female child are accomplished.

14. This is the law and testimony which was written down for Israel, in order that they should observe (it) all the days.

Book of Jasher, Chapter 1 Continued.

8 And when God had blessed and commanded them, he went from them, and Adam and his wife dwelt in the garden according to the command which the Lord had commanded them.
