Publisher's Summary

Between 1947 and 1956, approximately 15 copies of the “Book of Jubilees” were found among the Dead Sea Scrolls. This is second only in number to Psalms, Deuteronomy, Isaiah, Exodus, and Genesis, and far greater than any other extra-biblical text found there, including "The Book of Enoch”.

Also called the "The Little Genesis," "Book of Divisions," and the "Apocalypse of Moses," the "Book of Jubilees" is an apocryphal work (not accepted as Scripture) which historians believe was delivered to Moses by God on Mount Sinai. It was almost lost over thousands of years, but was retrieved from the Ethiopic language.

It re-interprets the contents of Genesis 1 - Exodus 12 (or according to some scholars, Genesis 1 - Exodus 15:22 or Exodus 16), which are here arranged in 49 periods, each of 49 years in length, the whole forming a Jubilee of Jubilees (Lev 25: 8-13).

The Book also gives additional details such as the fall of the angels, and the creation and destruction of the Nephilim detailing that one-tenth of their disembodied spirits would stay on earth as demons to tempt people and the rest would be imprisoned until the Tribulation Period.

The Oxford Christian Dictionary states, "The original Hebrew text survives only in fragments found in the Dead Sea Scrolls at Qumran. Up until their discovery, the work was known only from an Ethiopic translation of the whole and incomplete versions in Latin and Syriac. The fact that the surviving Hebrew fragments are from at least 12 different caves indicates that the Book enjoyed considerable popularity among the Qumran community." (The Oxford Dictionary of the Christian Church, s.v. "Jubilees, Book of." Page 905.)

Wonderful Book

This was a very informative. I have read the Book of Jasher and wanted to listen to other omitted books from the bible. The narration was excellent will get more books read by this narrator in future.

I’m never reading again!

This was way easier and way more enjoyable than reading an ancient book. When I am reading super old books it’s always almost as if I’m not processing the information… or maybe like I am reading just the individual words but they aren’t flowing together in my brain to make a story… or to give me any usable information… and if I’m being truthful it just feels like a chore.
Listening to this made the experience actually enjoyable (I didn’t want to stop listening) and understandable… WOOT! WOOT!
So if you are like me and dread reading old text and have to practically force yourself to do it… you should totally try listening!

And also, let me just say, the narrator is amazing…! He does voices but not in a distracting or cheesy way… and I feel like the voices help me to connect more to the characters… It’s kind of like putting a face to a name… you know? You finally really get to know someone when you SEE who they are… same goes with voices. :)

Anyway, I’m so thankful to have this way of “reading” ancient text.

So thank you Audible and everybody else that made this happen… I probably never EVER would’ve actually “read” the entirety of Jubilees without you.

The book could be more Jewish.

Many translations of Jewish literature fall short in capturing the depth of thought. This one is good, but could be improved. I gave it 4 stars for the effort.
