to delight is to pleasure but we are not to seek our OWN pleasure and only His
which should be a delight to us indeed. Relations with one’s spouse are not for
His pleasure. It is certainly Biblical the other six days of the week but Isaiah and
Jubilees agree. This truly is an enigma as the real question is why does this agree
on practically all of the law of Torah and yet, somehow it is said this may be a
Pharisee writing when the Pharisees changed much of Torah. Jubilees is not a
Pharisee view but condemns such many times yet upholds Torah as it is written.
It does not represent the things Messiah said were changed by Pharisees even and
this is close to the same time frame in which the copies at Qumran are dated.
Again those are copies.
Another ministry will tell you Isaiah does not actually include the word “the”
in the Hebrew. He just meant an indistinct day of rest or sabbath as if there is
such a thing. However, that ministry seems challenged to even read the rest of
the sentence where it says on “My Holy Day” and “holy of Yahuah.” Since when
was Sabbath not the Sabbath and what other day of the week is set apart as holy?
Only the Sabbath. They will argue back and forth on this one and let them do so
but do not allow them to censor Jubilees over something Isaiah says as well. There
is nothing in the Torah which states the opposite and this in no way conflicts.
Another article makes the claim that this view would make the writer a Sadducee,
another says a Pharisee. However, as we established earlier both factions were
considered the “sons of darkness” by the Qumran community who treated
Jubilees as Torah and identifies it as a part of the Law of Moses which means it
was written by Moses. They would not do so if it were just written at that time
especially not by a “son of darkness.” That is an irresponsible claim.
Jacob & Esau War After Jacob’s Death: Jacob Kills Esau (Jub. 37-38)
In Genesis, Jacob and Esau reconcile at their father’s death and no more is said.
We have no idea how Esau died and more so, what happened that the sons of
Edom (Esau) were at constant war against Israel ever since? In fact, this is a battle
that has no end until the very end. If Jacob and Esau reconciled, then why are
Esau’s sons and Jacobs sons at war for thousands of years? Here is where Jubilees
is the record of this history which brings all into focus and scholars should have
been questioning this all along. In Jubilees, the two brothers also reconcile to bury
their father. Esau is moved and genuine in both accounts. However, when Esau
returned to Edom with his sons, they began to bicker and manipulate their father
demanding their birthright be returned. They wanted war with Jacob. Esau would
agree to this and they would have war in which Jacob kills Esau. Some would say
censor Jubilees because it completes a story in a way that reconnects the whole of
scripture. This is because scripture was never disconnected. A portion of it was
