Summary

There are 13 ancient history books that are mentioned and recommended by the Bible. The Ancient Book of Jasher is the only one of the 13 that still exists.

It is not surprising that this ancient document confirms the Scripture and the chronology given in the Hebrew version of the Old Testament, once and for all settling the chronology differences between the Hebrew Old Testament and the Greek Septuagint.

The Book of Jasher covers the Mosaic period of the Bible presented in Genesis, Exodus, Numbers, Deuteronomy, and Joshua in greater detail and with explanations not found in the present Old Testament documents. This apocryphal book of the Bible has been considered by some to be the original beginning to the Bible and is referenced in both the Book of Joshua and the Second Book of Samuel.

One of the non-canonical books referenced in the Bible, The Book of Jasher spans the Bible books of Genesis through Joshua. For many, this ancient manuscript fills in blanks left by some biblical accounts - including the stories of Adam and Eve, Noah, and the Tower of Babel. The Book of Jasher provides readers with interesting, important, and perhaps otherwise ignored insights into the first 2,000 years of biblical history.

This work has been selected by scholars as being culturally important, and is part of the knowledge base of civilization as we know it. This work was reproduced from the original artifact.

History Academy strives to present Kindle, paperback, and audiobook versions of authentic, unabridged historical texts from prior eras which contain a variety of points of view.

The Book of Jashar was compiled from the Babylonian Talmud and other Jewish sources, and intermixed with Arabic legends and passages of the Bible.

The Book of Jashar is the normal English name (used by e.g., the King James Bible) of a work known in the original Hebrew as Sefer haYashar. It is the best known of several "lost books of the Old Testament", books referenced in the Hebrew Bible of which no copies are known to exist. The original Hebrew translates as "Book of the Upright". The translation "Book of the Just Man" is the traditional Greek and Latin translation, while the transliterated form "Jasher" is found in the King James Bible, 1611.

This title was misread as 'Jasher', and at some point Jasher was treated as a proper name; however the pronoun 'the' (hebrew 'ha') never preceeds proper names.

The Bible has a few books in the Old Testament mentioning books that were considered lost, among them is the book of Jasher. This particular extracanonical book was originally written and printed in Hebrew in 1552, and later in Venice in 1625. Even though most skeptics don’t consider it authentic because no copy older than the 1625 Hebrew edition is found today, there is a similar passage in this Book of Jasher and the Genesis Apocryphon found among the Dead Sea Scrolls in 1947, which could lead us to think that maybe the Book of Jasher is really at least 2000 years old.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Best audible version

I downloaded several audible versions of The Book of Jasher since there are numerous free versions. The problem was the narration was simply not good on any of the ones I checked. This narration is actually quite good and easy to listen to. Perhaps narrator is a matter of personal preference but for me, this narrator stood out.

Very informative

I found this audiobook to be very informative. In the bible there are only snippets of stories and for me this audiobook filled the gap of some of these . For me this audiobook was a great listen and would recommend it highly.
