The Book of Jubilees
(1902 Translation by R. H. Charles D.D.)

The Book of Jubilees, or The Little Genesis, is an ancient Jewish religious work of 50 chapters. Jubilees is considered one of the Pseudepigrapha.
It was well known to Early Christians. The text was also utilized by the community that originally collected the Dead Sea Scrolls. No complete Greek or Latin version is known to have survived, but the Ge’ez version has been shown to be an accurate translation of the versions found in the Dead Sea Scrolls.
The Book of Jubilees claims to present “the history of the division of the days of the Law, of the events of the years, the year-weeks, and the jubilees of the world” as revealed to Moses (in addition to the Torah or “Instruction”) by angels while he was on Mount Sinai for forty days and forty nights.
