support for Essenes ever living in Qumran. They know better.
The Book of Jubilees agrees with Torah for law and it does not agree with
Pharisee interpretation. The Pharisees expand the law, Jubilees does not. The
main thing quoted as a supposed discrepancy in terms of law is no pleasure on
the Sabbath which is affirmed by Isaiah and not an expansion at all. Even if that
were a conflict, and it is not, it would certainly not be of the level of censoring
this entire writing as a result. Talk about hair-splitting, gnat-straining and it is not
even an accurate criticism. Otherwise, there are no real conflicts of note in the
law. If this were written by a Pharisee who had already expanded the Torah to
the point in their Oral Traditions that they earned scathing rebukes from Messiah
especially in Mark 7, a reading would make that obvious and it does not. Messiah
quoted Jubilees thus those accusing this book as written by such, are claiming
Jesus (Yahusha) was quoting Pharisee doctrine which is certainly unthinkable.
Add an angel in Heaven, Peter, John, Paul, James and Luke to that list as they all
quote Jubilees for doctrine thus Pharisee doctrine? No way. There are prophesies
in this book that don’t fit Pharisees, a large amount of doctrine and truly a flat out
rebuke of Pharisees though not by name as they did not exist as a party until 165
B.C. This further proves the book was not written in that era. Jubilees does not
agree with the Talmud and that is very glaring. Frankly, reading this book makes
one realize just how uneducated Pharisees truly are in scripture as they follow a
different religion not that of the Bible nor have they ever. They have made up
their own doctrines in many cases to replace Jubilees and they do not represent
the Bible, were never curators of it and always have been illegitimate.
For instance, it is completely incoherent to actually attempt to connect the
fact that Noah and Abraham were dealing with sinful people as having to refer
to the era of the Greeks. It is foolhardy and very demeaning of a scholar such
as Charles and others to claim that because Abraham rebukes sin and idols he
must only refer to a 100-year period in history almost 2,000 years after him.
That logic would cause one to assume a Pharisee wrote the Torah as well which
is ridiculous. One could not attempt a more daft, counterproductive approach
yet somehow, scholarship as a whole has accepted this vain rubbish. Abraham
lived in the evil land of Nephilim and Canaan’s remaining cursed lineage. Noah
survived the most evil time in ALL of history to date and neither have to refer to
a 100-year period of Hellenism every time they rebuke sin. Idols are not new in
the Greek period. The practice is very ancient from Babylon and really originates
before the Flood. They were dealing with far worse. Jubilees is also not invoking
the Talmud but it rebukes it many times on many levels. This is as inverse as
confusing Kabbalistic, Gnostic Essenes with holy Levite, Temple priests. Both are
equally incongruous and unscholarly and should be rejected.
