Composed in about 160 to 150 B.C.E., Jubilees recounts biblical history from the Creation to the arrival of the Israelites at Mt. Sinai. The author quotes heavily from the biblical text but also omits portions and adds his own interpretations of the texts. See James VanderKam, “Jubilees—How It Rewrote the Bible,” BR 08:06.
