Item description for The Book of Jubilees; The Little Genesis, The Apocalypse of Moses by Joseph B. Lumpkin...
The Book of Jubilees, also known as The Little Genesis and The Apocalypse of Moses, opens with an extraordinary claim of authorship. It is attributed to the very hand of Moses; penned while he was on Mount Sinai, as an angel of God dictated to him regarding those events that transpired from the beginning of the world. The story is written from the viewpoint of the angel. The angelic monolog takes place after the exodus of the children of Israel out of Egypt. The setting is atop Mount Sinai, where Moses was summoned by God. The text then unfolds as the angel reveals heaven's viewpoint of history. We are lead through the creation of man, Adam's fall from grace, the union of fallen angels and earthly women, the birth of demonic offspring, the cleansing of the earth by flood, and the astonishing claim that man's very nature was somehow changed, bringing about a man with less sinful qualities than his antediluvian counterpart. The story goes on to fill in many details in Israel's history, ending at the point in time when the narrative itself takes place, after the exodus.

Good job Jul 29, 2008
Lumpkin does a good job with this book. It is a very good tool to have handy when you study Holy Scripture.
Have not read completely yet. Jul 30, 2007
Sorry, I have not completed the book yet. But, I feel it is going to be an excellent source to clear up some confusing issues in the Old Testament. Thanks, AJ
The Book of Jubilees. Jul 8, 2007
I found the book interesting and very comparable to the Old Testiment versions of events. The insights I gained regarding Jewish traditions surrounding the events in Genesis was worth the read.
Great Book to Add to Your Bible and Religious Studies Mar 8, 2007
After receiving this book, I could not put it down and two more of my friends ordered it for our weekly Bible Study class
Eye Opening - And Good May 31, 2006
I always thought there were many things left unexplained in Genesis. The Book of Jubilees fills in the gaps.
The titles, Jubilees, Little Genesis, and Apocalypes of Moses, refer to the same book. These are titles given to the same work in various times and places.
The book covers in great detail all of the questions I had after reading Genesis.
The book also gives the reason that the Watchers first came to earth - before they became the fallen angels.
15 In the second week of the tenth jubilee Mahalalel took to him to wife Dinah, the daughter of Barakiel the daughter of his father's brother, and she gave birth to a son in the third week in the sixth year, and he called his name Jared, for in his days the angels of the Lord descended on the earth, those who are named the Watchers, that they should instruct the children of men, and that they should do judgment and uprightness on the earth.
