occurrences throughout this book but we will cover some next. Consistent with
Torah, Jubilees identifies the stranger among Israel also keeping the covenant as
gentiles have always been included in the plan of salvation. That is not new in
the New Testament. In 15:24, the strangers in Abraham’s household were also
circumcised. 16:25, tells us there was no one including gentiles among Abraham’s
household that were not circumcised. They were keeping the covenant. This is
consistent with Torah which even during the Exodus documents the stranger
among you or Gentile had the same blessings and curses under the covenant (Ex.
12:49, Num. 9:14, 15:26-29, Lev. 16:29, 18:26, 19:34, 17:12).
4. Quoted As Doctrine In Scripture (Our Addition)
MESSIAH & APOSTLES QUOTED JUBILEES:
Also, the Book of Jubilees is the source of quotes in the New Testament by
Jesus(Yahusha), John, Peter, Paul, James and Luke and not arbitrarily so but for
doctrine not found anywhere else in the Old Testament. Everyone should know.
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.
The margin notes from the KJV anchor this passage in origin to Psalm 33:6
which is not it’s source for Him who created all things.
Psalm 33:6 KJV
By the word of the Lord were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath
of his mouth.
What is John doing here? Nowhere in the Old Testament does it ever define the
Messiah to come as the Creator of all things along with Yahuah. Certainly this
anchor in Psalm is not a direct link to that. This should be a challenge to many
scholars as this has no root in the modern Old Testament. Is John manufacturing
new doctrine however? No, he is quoting the prophecy of Messiah from the Book
of Jubilees. Proverbs 8:22-23 and 30 are also cited in the margin note but they all
pertain to wisdom not identifying Jesus (Yahusha) as co-creating all things.
