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 referenced in Joshua 10:13; 2 Samuel 1:18; and 2 Timothy 3:8. This volume contains the entire 91 chapters plus a detailed analysis of the supposed discrepancies, cross-referenced historical accounts, and detailed charts for ease of use. As with any history book there are typographical errors in the text but with three consecutive timelines running though the histories it is very easy to arrive at the exact dates of recorded events. 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 Ancient book of Jasher is brought to you by Biblefacts Ministries, Biblefacts.org

The Book of Jasher, reprinted for the first time in several years and with a new introduction by popular author W. Jeffrey Marsh, offers Bible readers interesting and important insights into the first two thousand years of biblical history. the Book of Jasher follows the biblical accounts in Genesis, Exodus, Numbers, Deuteronomy, and Joshua. It reads like the Bible but includes interpolations and elaborations not found in the Bible. In addition, it sheds light on Bible stories from the time of Adam and Eve, the ministry of Enoch, and the account of the great Deluge during the days of Noah to the Tower of Babel, nefarious Nimrod, and faithful Abraham and his descendants. As Moredecai M. Noah wrote in his introduction to the 1840 English translation: Without giving it to the world as a work of Divine inspiration, or assuming the responsibility to say that it is not an inspired book, I have no hesitation in pronouncing it a work of great antiquity and interest, and a work that is entitled, even regarding it as a literary curiosity, to a great circulation among those who take pleasure in studying the scriptures.
English summary: Following the analysis of the Hebrew basis-text through the edition of the Genizah fragments (2003) and the synopsis of the manuscripts of both versions of Avot de-Rabbi Natan (2006), Hans-Jurgen Becker presents a translation of Version B with this volume. The translation is in alignment with the text research for this work, which is a central source for historical interpretation and wisdom of antique Rabbinic Judaism, and renders the work accessible to interested neighbouring disciplines. The basis of the translation is the oldest and most completely preserved manuscript MS Parma 2785 (= de Rossi 327, Spain 1289), supplemented by the MS Vatican 303 (Italy, 15 th century). Translation-relevant variations of all textual witnesses are annotated or documented in a synoptic depiction. The greatest possible literality is aimed for and difficult passages are not linguistically concealed. The remarks indicate possible understandings of the text without preempting its interpretation. German description: Nach Erschliessung der hebraischen Textbasis durch die Edition der Geniza-Fragmente (2003) und die Synopse der Handschriften beider Versionen von Avot de-Rabbi Natan (2006) legt Hans-Jurgen Becker mit diesem Band eine Ubersetzung von Version B vor, die auf dem aktuellen Stand der Textforschung diese fur Geschichtsdeutung und Weisheit des antik-rabbinischen Judentums zentrale Quelle auch den Interessierten angrenzender Disziplinen zuganglich macht. Grundlage der Ubersetzung ist die alteste und vollstandigste erhaltene Handschrift MS Parma 2785 (= de Rossi 327, Spanien 1289), erganzt durch MS Vatikan 303 (Italien, 15. Jh.). Ubersetzungsrelevante Varianten samtlicher Textzeugen werden anmerkungsweise oder durch synoptische Darstellung dokumentiert. Die Ubersetzung ist um grosstmogliche Wortlichkeit bemuht - schwierige Stellen werden sprachlich nicht geglattet. Die Anmerkungen geben Hinweise zum moglichen Textverstandnis, ohne der Interpretation vorzugreifen.

In 2025, antiquities dealer Benjamin Jasher delivers for translation a most unusual artifact inscribed with ancient Sumerian characters to professors William Bedford and Isaac Levinson. Upon further study, the professors realize the document predates any known record ever written by one thousand years. It would be valuable beyond belief, assuming a price could even be attached to it. As the work of translation proceeds, the mysterious account indicates that mankind’s most feared enemy still walks the Earth and has been consolidating his power and marshaling his dark forces for thousands of years. He is the Man of Shadows, and he has only one agenda: to establish a one-world order where he controls the destiny of mankind. Translation of the artifact further reveals a worldwide conspiracy and casts history in a different, darker tone. Now, only Jasher stands between the Man of Shadows and his goal—not because Benjamin is more cunning, but because he has the means to expose his dark adversary for what he is and what he wants: he is the Beast and intents for all to carry his mark.
