Overview

The book of Enoch is considered an apocryphal book, not traditionally part of the Protestant canon. The integrity of the Apochrypha has been debated for a long time, but what are the resources available to discuss its authenticity? R.H. Charles left parochial work in 1889 to devote his life to biblical research and became one of the primary authorities of his time in matters of Jewish culture, theology, eschatology, and Apocrypha. This collection contains 13 volumes of Charles’ works, with topics such as Enoch, the twelve patriarchs, the writings of the Sons of Zadok, and the Decalogue.

The book of Enoch, like the book of Daniel, was written partly in Aramaic and partly in Hebrew. Serious scholarship places this important pseudepigraph within the first two centuries before Christ. The translation is from Dillmann’s edition of the Ethiopic text, which was based on five manuscripts, nine uncollated Ethiopic manuscripts, and Greek and Latin fragments. This volume explains how evil came to the world with the arrival of the “fallen angels.”

The Ascension of Isaiah is a composite work of both Jewish and Christian origin. This volume was translated from the Ethiopic version, the Greek fragment, the Latin versions, and the Latin translation of the Slavonic version. R.H. Charles mainly focuses on the vision of Isaiah and the testament of Hezekiah. This text reveals the first-century beliefs of the doctrines of Trinity, of Incarnation, and of the Seven Heavens.

The Book of Jubilees—also known as The Little Genesis—was translated from four Ethiopic manuscripts. It contains a fascinating variety of material not found in the Bible, including details concerning the Fall, Cain and Abel, angels, the Flood, the Tower of Babel, Jacob’s visions, the Messianic Kingdom, and many other subjects. R.H. Charles’ commentary diverges from the traditional belief that Jubilees was written during the first-century, and instead he asserts that it was written at the same time as the Testaments of the Twelve Patriarchs. This volume is intended for scholars and theological students.
