The Book of Jubilees: The Torah Calendar eBook - Book - Page 23
Regardless of whether one attempts to place the Book of Jubilees as written
around 150 B.C., that was still before Messiah was born and this book offers
prophecy of His coming.
Jubilees 16:26 (Abraham Knew of the Coming Messiah) And he blessed his Creator
who had created him in his generation, for He had created him according to His
good pleasure; for He knew and perceived that from him would arise the plant of
righteousness for the eternal generations, and from him a holy seed, so that it should
become like Him who had made all things.
The “Plant of Righteousness for the eternal generations” can only be Messiah.
It is also mentioned in 7:34. It is certainly not Israel but one man according to 1
Enoch (1 En. 10:16, 93:5, 10) which specifies it is Messiah. He is the “holy seed”
and He is the one “who had made all things” (Jn. 1). Along with Genesis, you are
looking at the first major prophecy of Messiah from Moses and the origin of John
1 in doctrine. We will vet this in the Torah Test next. The Book of Jubilees is the
origin of one of the most significant doctrines in the entire New Testament. The
Messiah is the Creator along with Yahuah. John is quoting Jubilees here and we
discover Messiah, Peter, Paul, James and Luke doing the same (see The Torah Test).
John 1:1-3 KJV
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without
him was not any thing made that was made.
Messiah is among the “Us” who created (Gn. 1:26). His generations are eternal
as He has no beginning and no end (Hb. 7:3) – the Alpha and Omega (Rv. 1:8).
Jubilees 21:24 (Abraham to Isaac)
And He will bless thee in all thy deeds, And will raise up from thee the plant of
righteousness through all the earth, throughout all generations of the earth, And my
name and thy name will not be forgotten under heaven for ever.
How can this plant of righteousness be raised up throughout all the earth for
all generations which would include those past? Messiah existed before since
Creation and became flesh within Abraham’s seed. We believe this is the direct
reference in which Messiah refers when He told the Pharisees they did not believe
the words of Moses “for he wrote of me” (Jn. 5:45-46). It is not vague. Let us
begin with The Torah Test of the Book of Jubilees.
