The author is quoting the timeline from the Book of Jubilees which does not
derive in the modern Old Testament. We deduce if the writer of Acts and John
can quote the Book of Jubilees, we can certainly use it.
This next scripture is actually one of the things that Jubilees is criticized as this
claim that Moses received assistance from angels on Mt. Sinai in writing is not
found in Torah yet no one seems to realize, the writer of Acts says the same thing.
Thus to reject Jubilees over this obscure point is to also condemn Acts and we are
confident those critics would not apply this consistently on that topic.
We disagree with that and so does Luke who says the Torah was received by
Moses by the “disposition of angels.” This is a major issue for scholars as they
would have to condemn Luke for this as he is quoting a doctrine not found in the
entire Old Testament. How dare he say Moses received some of the law from
angels which is not found in Torah. Some will argue Yahuah wrote the law with
his finger but they fail to read that was specific to the 10 commandments and
their 2 tablets not all of the law nor is He an angel. Nothing in scripture disagrees
with this and here we have the New Testament affirming Jubilees in a manner
that is not against the Old Testament. How could Luke add to the Word, to the
Torah even? He did not as he is quoting the sixth book of the Torah – the Book
of Jubilees which was well-noted as such.
Acts 7:53 KJV
Who have received the law by the disposition of angels, and have not kept it.
Jubilees 1:26 (R.H. Charles, 1903)
And He said to the angel of the presence: Write for Moses from the beginning of
creation till My sanctuary has been built among them for all eternity.
Jubilees 1:13 (R.H. Charles, 1903)
And they will forget all My law and all My commandments and all My judgments,
and will go astray as to new moons, and sabbaths, and festivals, and jubilees, and
In fact, Jubilees had already prophesied that Israel would break Yahuah’s
law just as Luke mentions. He was reading Jubilees and quoting it because it
was scripture. No one can criticize Jubilees for it’s position of the angel of the
presence writing down the first portion of Genesis. Moses was not alive in that era
and scholars even criticize him for that portion without cause. He had assistance
which is rather obvious logically.
