4.0 out of 5 stars good
a book written durig the maccabeen period. Has come to us ,largely in an uncorrupted condition. Accepted scripture for several hundred years. Lots of information not included in the biblical stories. Starts with adam and ends with moses and its content will be largely familiar to anyone who has read / is reading genesis and exodus

5.0 out of 5 stars A History From Creation to Moses with Additional Info, 29 May 2010

I got the book the other day and have begun reading it. However, I feel the article below does a very good job of describing it briefly.

The Book of Jubilees is an account of the Biblical history of the world from creation to Moses. It is divided into periods ('Jubilees') of 49 years. For the most part the narrative follows the familiar account in Genesis, but with some additional details such as the names of Adam and Eve's daughters, and an active role for a demonic entity called 'Mastema'. The anonymous author is interested in calendar reform, and uses Jubilees as a platform for proposing a solar calendar of 364 days and 12 months; this would have been a radical departure from the Jewish Calendar, which is lunar-based. There are also a couple of messianic, apocalyptic passages, although quite a bit less than the Book of Enoch.

The only complete version of Jubilees is in Ethiopian, although large fragments in Greek, Latin and Syriac are also known. It is believed that it was originally written in Hebrew. If at times one gets the impression that you are reading a first draft of Genesis, you are in good company. R.H. Charles, the translator, a distinguished academic Biblical scholar, concluded that Jubilees was a version of the Pentateuch, written in Hebrew, parts of which later became incorporated into the earliest Greek version of the Jewish Bible, the Septuagint.

From the site sacred-texts dot com. also from the inside cover of the printed book itself.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating insight into aspects of genesis, 20 Nov 2010
This is like a more detailed version of Genesis which interesting clarifications on certain things not made clear in genesis such as the demonic spirits who started to influence mankind and aid them in the invention of tools of war and things like outward adorments, also explains the interpretation of genesis that Adam died within the same day he ate from the tree, the one day being from God's perspective of 1000 years.
Also speaks of masterma / satan and how He placated God to allow him to keep a portion of his demons on earth to tempt and influence mankind. God bound the majority of the demonic forces in hell after they were influencing and abusing mankind and copulating with women to produce giants in the land. These are called the watchers, the fallen angels who had spiritual intercourse with women and made them produce giants, the nephilim.
After this God bound those fallen angels into hell under the earth, but allows satan to have a small portion of his demons to remain on earth because of mans wickedness, this seems to have given satan a hold or some type of legal authority to still have some control and presence on earth spiritually.
God allows satan to have a small portion of his fallen angel followers remain on earth that they may have influence over those humans who offer them a doorway perhaps and are in kinhood with them.
Small additional pieces of information and clarification really opens your eyes, this should be included in the Bible I think, but most of it is covered in Genesis. It can offer greater insights and understanding of what is going on spiritually behind the scenes.
