The church was aware but the Catholic Church is much more akin to the
Pharisees than the Biblical ekklesia. One should not expect it would have
continued a book the Pharisees had already censored in the time of Messiah
and their councils admit this as they follow the Pharisee suggestions. Certainly
the church quoted Jubilees, even a Pope. However, there is not a single church
father who had the authority to remove a book quoted and used by Messiah and
the Apostles as Torah. If they represented the true ekklesia, they would have
continued the same books that were found in the Levite library in Qumran.
Though continued in the Ethiopian canon this entire time to today, in the
Western world, Jubilees appeared lost for about 400 years until it was rediscovered
in the Ethiopic. Multiple English translations from the Ethiopic were released
from the mid-1800s to mid-1900s before the Dead Sea Scrolls were found. Once
discovered in Qumran as the sixth most numerous scroll, Jubilees is known to have
originated in Hebrew and those fragments coalesce with the Ethiopic. This really
proved this was preserved in the Ethiopic Geez language and there is no scripture
which ever says that is not acceptable. That is a false paradigm in scholarship as
the book is preserved regardless and affirmed in Hebrew as well.
There are several more such instances in which Jubilees is engrained into the
prophets, apostles and even Messiah such as the use of the title Abba by Messiah
in Mark 14:16 and Paul in Romans 8:15 and Galatians 4:6. This title is not found
in the Old Testament and some have noted such. However, Father as a title is
found in the original Torah (1:24 and 19:29). Jubilees is quoted by Messiah again.
