Study Editions of the Book of Enoch and Book of Jasher


The Book of Enoch and the Book of Jasher are two very important "lost books" of the Bible.  The Book of Enoch (1Enoch 1:9) is quoted in Jude 1:14-15 "Did not Enoch seventh from Adam prophecy saying" and the Book of Jasher is cited in Joshua 10:13 "Is this not written in the Book of Jasher" and 2Sam. 1:18 "Behold it is written in the Book of Jasher."

We now have special Study Editions available for each of these books.  Each is filled with hundreds of helpful study notes and study helps. These volumes are filles with cross references citing the Scriptures, the Apocrypha, the Dead Sea Scrolls, Talmud, Midrashim, Zohar. Each is a fresh translation from the oldest available texts.

James, I live in the UK and would like to know the hazards of having books posted to the UK. Some people have complained about excessive handling charges by carriers over here. Also books should be tax free here too but unless they are marked as such on the packing  tax has been charged, so if that can be done that would be appreciated. I would really like to order both books in hardback, can you get back to me before the 30th deadline? Thanks, Bill Guyan.

Bill,

The publisher and shipper is Lulu,com.  I do know that they print and distribute worldwide.  My understanding is that they actually have printing ans shipping facilities in other countries.  So your books might even be printed in the UK. but I don't know for sure.  You will need to ask Lulu.com

Hi James, I now have your Study Editions of Enoch and Jasher. I'm very pleased. I have no doubt about the inspiration of the Book of Enoch, I had that belief many years ago. However I hope you can shed some light on this apparent anomaly which you don't raise in your notes - do you have an explanation for why YHWH returns to Mt Sinai whereas Zechariah and the Book of Acts say Mt of Olives?

Thanks.

According to Midrash Tehillim (39a) at the time of the Messianic Kingdom, The Holy One will bring together Mount Sinai, Mt. Tabor and Mt. Carmel, and place New Jerusalem upon them. 

Perhaps this is related.

Thanks for the reply. I was wondering if it was an error by an ancient copyist.

Re the Mt Sinai/Mt of Olives question. The Mt Sinai of today did not exist in the Antedeluvian world, just as the river Euphrates cannot have been the one we know today. The pre Flood world was entirely different; "the world that then was" (II Pet 3:6) is lost under the world of today, covered by about 2/3 of Flood water, with the dry land more or less water deposited sediment. Would you agree then that what Enoch meant by Mt Sinai is not what we would understand by it today?

However, while that might be a solution to taht problem it introduces another, that Enoch refers to geographical locations taht didnt exist in his time - the region of "Dan" for example, before Dan was born, and in fact before Israel could have existed, either geographically or politically?

As always, your comments are greatly appreciated and respected.

Isaiah refered to Cyrus by name before he was born.

It doesn't explain, for example, how the Watchers descended on Mt Hermon before Mt Hermon would have existed, unless we again assume it was a different pre Flood Mt Hermon.

I think it is indicating the reason the mountain was called Hermon
