Enoch and Jasher

As much as what is called "The Approcrypha" and considered to not be canon, or inspired Biblical text, many have lumped the books of Enoch and Jasher falsely into this category.

A true copy of The Appocrypha does not contain thgese two books. You will find books such as: The First Book of Adam and Eve,The Second Book of Adam and Eve,The Book of the Secrets of Enoch,The Psalms of Solomon,The Odes of Solomon,The Letter of Aristeas,Fourth Book of Maccabees,The Story of Ahikar,The Testaments of the Twelve Patriarchs,Testament of Reuben,Testament of Simeon,Testament of Levi,The Testament of Judah,The Testament of Issachar,The Testament of Zebulun,The Testament of Dan,The Testament of Naphtali,The Testament Of Gad,The Testament of Asher,The Testament of Joseph,The Testament of Benjamin and others. The book of the cecrets of Enoch and the Bookof Enoch are not one and the same just as The testament of Jasher and the book of Jasher are not the same.

None of the Approcryphal books are ever quoted or referred to in the Bible (KJV), although this is not true of Enoch and Jasher. Enoch is referrenced numerous times, from the time of his birth to the time of his death in Genesis 4, Genesis 5, Luke 3, Hebrews 11, and Jude 14.

The book of Jasher is also referrenced in the KKJV Bible in Joshua 10:13 and 2Samuel 1:18. The place in Jasher that is referrenced in Joshua 10:13 is Jasher 88: 63-65. It is a direct account of the happenings of Joshua 10. Also found in Jasher 88 is the telling of Joshua and the falling of the walls of Jericho.

Nothing in either the book if Enoch or the book of Jasher contradict what is commonly accepted canon in the KJV Bible; they can however bring some detail that is not covered in the cannonised text. Enoch is still considered canon in many places and is included in some Bibles.

Not considered of any worth by the KJV purists is being shortsighted, as they are most absolutely Bible endorsed and referrenced too many times so as to be easily discarded as of little or no worth. Were Joshua, Samuel, Luke, Paul and Jude heretics for quoting and referencing them? To hear it the way some KJV purists claim it would appear so, however I believe that it was a disservice not to include them in the cannonised KJV Bible, even though I understand why they were not. Enoch in particular, gets so specific about the path of the luminaries (section 3 chapter 72) that one following it cannot but come to the conclusion that the earth is a level palne and not a spinnig sphere. The description of the path of the luminaries in Enoch makes no sense whatsoever on a globe earth but falls right into place with an immovable flat earth.
