Within the Jewish and Christian communities these books and the doctrine contained in them are mentioned in the Bible but not included in the Bible. They are not spiritual canon, either because they were not available at the time the canon was originally adopted, or at the time they were not considered “inspired.” In cases when inspiration was questioned, one could argue that any book quoted or mentioned by a prophet or an apostle should be considered as spiritual canon; unfortunately this position would prove at odds with church standards. If the Bible is inspired and a book is quoted in the Bible, is it also inspired? Is it simply that piece being quoted that contains the inspiration? Judge for yourself.

13. The Book Of Jasher: “Is it not written in the book of Jasher? 2 Samuel 1:18 and Joshua 10:13

The Book of Jude tells us in Verse 14 that “Enoch, the seventh from Adam, prophesied.” Jude also, in Verse 15, makes a direct reference to the Book of Enoch (2:1), where he writes, “to execute judgment on all, to convict all who are ungodly.” As a matter of fact, it is a direct, word for word quote. Therefore, Jude’s reference to the Enochian prophesies strongly leans toward the conclusion that these written prophesies were available to him at that time.
