Q. What is your view regarding the THE BOOK OF JASHER? How accurate is it? Any thoughts would do!!
A. Since the Book of Jasher is not in the Bible I am not very familiar with it. I do know that there are three different books with the same title. Two are obvious fakes. The real one was quoted twice in the Old Testament, in Joshua 10:13 and 2 Sam. 1:18. While thought to be authoritative, it was not included in the Bible because it’s author was unknown, and because it’s largely a secular history. (Jasher is not the name of its author, it is a word that means “The Upright”.)
It appears to be written by a series of authors over an extended period of time. To be part of the Hebrew canon a book’s author had to be identified and its authenticity verified. It was included in the Septuagint (Greek) translation but rejected from the Hebrew Bible about 90 AD.
