Luke and Paul tell us the law or Torah was in fact received by the disposition
of angels. Frankly, this is really the same for the first chapters of Genesis as well.
Moses was not present at Creation nor for the Flood. There are actual scholars
who then question Moses’ authorship of Genesis because he could not have
witnessed those events first-hand. That is a false paradigm setting a trap to keep
us ignorant whether said scholar even realizes. Moses did not have to witness
events that Yahuah and the Angel of the Presence helped him write. In fact, let us
not forget the other author of origin of Exodus especially is Yahuah who wrote
the Ten Commandments and a portion of the law with His very finger. The
Angel of the Presence is a witness to the events of Creation from the first day
when he was created. Moses did not author that though he copied it.
Jubilees tells us those happenings from Creation have been recorded on the
Heavenly Tablets by the Angel of the Presence. Thus, the angel who keeps
scripture in Heaven assisted Moses with that portion of both Jubilees and Genesis
which both originate from the Sinai encounter together. How many times do we
have to see that scripture talks about Heavenly Tablets such as the Book of Life,
etc. until we believe the concept?
Jubilees somehow gets mixed into what is called Pseudepigrapha—Greek for
“false writings” or “false subscriptions.” The word false more so refers to the
claim in authorship as this claims to be penned by Moses. Do they prove it was
not authored by Moses? Not even remotely. However, many scholars will create
enough doubt to cause one to step away in many cases. We will vet much of that
in this Torah Test.
It is erroneously claimed that Jubilees was written in about 150 B.C. which is
the likely accurate dating of the fragment copies found in Qumran perhaps. This
dating does not appear based as much on scientific assessment of the fragment as
much as a guess that fits a paradigm. That paradigm is false not Moses’ writings.
For instance, some will mention Jubilees quotes other portions of the Old
Testament such as Psalm, etc. Then, they’ll say 1 Enoch is dated to 165 B.C.
which is just another ludicrous guess. Along with Jubilees was found all of the
modern Old Testament canon except Esther. The dating of all such copies is
between the third century B.C. and first century A.D. essentially. However, what
scholar would then conclude or even suggest that Genesis was written in about
200 A.D. or so? That would be ludicrous. How about Psalm? Of course not.
However, they apply one set of reasoning to the modern Bible canon scrolls
found and a different one for all other books found with them which is fraudulent
in nature. That is not logical and forms another false paradigm by which to set
up failure in any further discussion. This is not scholarship, it’s called propaganda
