Septuagint
The Septuagint was the original Old Testament used by Christians in the first few centuries, and before that, it was the Tanakh of the Sadducee sect of Judaism. It was was later replaced in western Bibles by the Masoretic Texts, which were based on the Tanakh used by the Pharisee sect of Judaism. As a result, most early Christian writings are confusing, especially when discussing the chronology of the world. The Septuagint series is a 21st-century English translation that is easy to understand, using common English versions of Hebrew names instead of transliterated Greek names that are generally found in translations of the Septuagint. When ancient place names are known, such as Uruk, the modern term is used instead of the Greek (Orech) or Hebrew (Erech) translations. Unlike the later Masoretic Texts, the Septuagint was not a monotheistic work, but rather a Hedonistic text, which recognized the existence of many gods, but was dedicated to the worship of one above the others: Iao, later transliterated as Jehovah or Yahweh.

Books of Enoch and Metatron
The five books of Enoch are a collection of books written in Semitic languages, and often grouped together as the ‘Book of Enoch,’ or ‘1st Enoch.’ The books were likely written at different points in time and different Semitic languages. The first book was the Book of the Watchers, which is generally considered to be the oldest book in the collection, however, the age of the book is debated. The book is now known to have originated long before Christianity since the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls, however, was lost for well over a thousand years to Europeans, and assumed to be a Christian-era work when the Europeans rediscovered it in Ethiopia. The five books of Enoch only survive in Ge’ez, the classical language of Ethiopia, however, do not survive intact, and some sections of text do not survive. Other books attributed to Enoch, include the Secrets of Enoch, which is also called the 2nd Book of Enoch, however, is not the same text as the Semitic 2nd Book of Enoch. Another text attributed to Enoch is the Apocalypse of Metatron.
Apocalypse of Ezra Collection
In the early centuries of the Christian era, several texts called the Apocalypse of Ezra were in circulation among Jews and Christians. The original is believed to have been written in Hebrew, Aramaic, or Syriac, and is commonly known as the Jewish Apocalypse of Ezra. This version was translated into Greek sometime before 200 AD and circulated widely within the early Christian churches. This book claimed that the prophet Ezra wrote 240 books, and its popularity seems to have inspired several ‘Christian’ Apocalypses of Ezra, presumably beginning with the ‘Latin’ Apocalypse of Ezra which claimed to be the “second book of the prophet Ezra.” This prophet Ezra is not the scribe Ezra from the Jewish scriptures, but a prophet named Ezra that lived several decades earlier.
Testaments of the Patriarchs
In the early Christian era, many Testaments of the Patriarchs circulated in Jewish and Christian communities, the foremost being the Testaments of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. The other major testaments were grouped together as the Testaments of the Twelve, which included the Testaments of Reuben, Simeon, Levi, Judah, Issachar, Zebulun, Dan, Naphtali, Gad, Asher, Joseph, and Benjamin. These testaments were widely accepted by the early Christian churches, and continue to form part of the Armenian Bible. The books were popular in Western Europe during the Middle Ages when they were generally considered authentic ancient Jewish texts. The current academic view is that there was a simpler Hebrew Jewish version that was then updated in the early Christian era by Greek speakers that added the Christian prophesies.

The Life of Adam and Eve
The Life of Adam and Eve is believed to have originally been written in Aramaic, sometime during the Second Temple Era, however, no Aramaic copies exist today. It was very popular in the Early Christian era, and quoted by the Apostle Paul, however, never ended up in the Christian Bibles as it was not in the Septuagint, the old Greek translation of the Jewish scriptures done at the Library of Alexandria between 300 and 132 BC. Various versions of the Life of Adam and Eve survive, in Greek, Latin, Armenian, Old Slavonic, and Georgian, and additional works are believed to have been inspired by it, such as the Cave of Treasures, and the Conflict of Adam and Eve with Satan. The Life of Adam and Eve, had influenced both Christianity and Islam, although it is rarely read by either Christians or Muslims today.

The Book of Shadrach appears to be the oldest book of the ancient Samarian prophets, written between 880 and 870 BC. The Book of Shadrach predicts the fall of the Egyptian and Assyrian Empires, meaning they must have still been around at the time, as well as the coming of the prophet ‘Elijah the Tishbite,’ who was the prophet Elijah the Masoretic books of Kings and Diḇrê Hayyāmîm.

The New Kingdom era of Egyptian history emerged from the darkness of the Second Intermediate Period, when the Theban dynasty drove out the Hyksos from Egypt, and went on the conquer Canaan, and Nubia. The Hyksos dynasty appears to have been largely as a result of the Minoan eruption in Greece, which darkened the sky of Egypt and blanketed northern Egypt with up to 2 meters (6 feet) in ash.

In the mid-3rd century BC, King Ptolemy II Philadelphus of Egypt ordered a translation of the ancient Hebrew scriptures for the Library of Alexandria, which resulted in the creation of the Septuagint. The Letter of Aristeas, also called the Letter to Philocrates, was written by someone who claimed to have been part of the events that created the original translation of the Septuagint.

Price: $2.99 USD. Words: 7,830. Language: American English. Published: September 16, 2020. Categories: Nonfiction » History » Ancient, Nonfiction » History » Middle East / Egypt
The story of the Voyage of Wenamen, also called the Report of Wenamen, or the Misadventures of Wenamen, is considered one of the earliest surviving adventure tales. Unlike many of their neighboring cultures, the Egyptians did not write historical narratives, the text must have started as an autobiography of Wenamen circa 1065 BC. The one partially surviving copy appears to have been an excerpt.
Dodeka: Book of the Prophets

The four books of the Kingdoms are believed to have been translated into Greek and added to the Septuagint around 200 BC, when a large number of refugees fled from the war in Judea and settled in Egypt. The story of the Voyage of Wenamen, also called the Report of Wenamen, or the Misadventures of Wenamen, is set in the same era, and is considered one of the earliest surviving adventure tales.
Septuagint: Malachi

The Book of Malachi is the most curious and debated of the Books of the Twelve minor prophets, as the name Malachi (מלאכי) simply means 'angelic' in Hebrew, and the Greek translation used the word angel (ἀγγέλου) in the Septuagint. Most Jewish and Christian denominations do treat the word as the name of a prophet, however, the prophet Malachi was never mentioned by any other prophet or Ezra.

In the mid-3rd century BC, King Ptolemy II Philadelphus of Egypt ordered a translation of the ancient Hebrew scriptures for the Library of Alexandria, which resulted in the creation of the Septuagint. The original version, published circa 250 BC, only included the Torah, or in Greek terms, the Pentateuch. The first edition was followed by the second, around 225 BC, the Octateuch.

The setting of the Ruth is the lands of Judah and Moab in the early-1000s BC, when the Book of Judges claimed there was no king. The last judge under the Philistines in the books of Judges was Samson's father Manoah, who ruled until 1090 BC when the Philistine Kingdoms apparently collapsed. This was just over a decade before the collapse of the Egyptian New Kingdom in 1077 BC.
Septuagint: Judges
Series: Septuagint. Price: $3.99 USD. Words: 37,680. Language: American English. Published: August 30, 2020. Categories: Nonfiction » Religion & Spirituality » Judaism / Sacred Writings, Nonfiction » Religion & Spirituality » Biblical Studies / Old Testament
The Book of Judges itself is very old, and the Song of Deborah may be the oldest surviving piece of Israelite literature. It uses some of the most archaic forms of Hebrew, and was likely composed in Canaanite before Hebrew became a defined dialect as this issue of dialect was part of the division between the Israelites during the battle between the Gileadites and the Ephraimites.
Septuagint: Zachariah
Series: Septuagint. Price: $3.99 USD. Words: 12,560. Language: English. Published: August 23, 2020. Categories: Nonfiction » Religion & Spirituality » Biblical Studies / Prophets, Nonfiction » Religion & Spirituality » Judaism / Sacred Writings
The Book of Zachariah is set in the years 520 through 518 BC, a few years after Jerusalem was occupied by the Persians in 525 BC. Most scholars accept that the first eight chapters of Zachariah were written shortly after 520 BC at the same time as Haggai, however, the later six chapters appear to be a much older prophecy of Shadrach that became embedded in Zachariah at some point.
Septuagint: Joshua
Series: Septuagint. Price: $3.99 USD. Words: 29,570. Language: American English. Published: August 20, 2020. Categories: Nonfiction » Religion & Spirituality » Biblical Studies / Old Testament, Nonfiction » Religion & Spirituality » Judaism / Sacred Writings
The general view of both historians and biblical scholars is that the Book of Joshua holds no historical value, and is simply a book written during the life of Josiah, or during the Babylonian captivity, or even later by Ezra during the Second Temple Era, however, this is based on analysis of the Masoretic version of the book, which is quite different from the Septuagint's version.
Septuagint: Haggai
Series: Septuagint. Price: $2.99 USD. Words: 6,000. Language: American English. Published: August 17, 2020. Categories: Nonfiction » Religion & Spirituality » Biblical Studies / Prophecy, Nonfiction » Religion & Spirituality » Judaism / Sacred Writings
The Book of Haggai is set in the year 520 BC, a few years after Jerusalem was occupied by the Persians in 525 BC. Most scholars accept that Haggai was written shortly after 520 BC, however, it appears to have been written about Haggai, and not by him. Very little is known about him, as the era he lived in as part of the so-called missing years of Rabbinical history.

The differences between the Masoretic and the Septuagint's version of Numbers, and several other books in the two collections of scriptures are both minor and startling, as the two sets of scriptures contain the same stories, but different Gods.

The Book of Jonah is generally considered by scholars to be fictional tale written in the Persian era, however, the version in the Septuagint indicated the story likely dates back to the Assyrian era, between 720 and 612 BC. There are several reasons why Jewish, Christian, and secular scholars have questioned the book's origin.

King Solomon is arguably the most famous of all ancient Israelite kings, with several books in the Septuagint dedicated to him, or about him, or even by him, yet, to date, no archeological evidence for his life has been found.

King Solomon is arguably the most famous of all ancient Israelite kings, with several books in the Septuagint dedicated to him, or about him, or even by him, yet, to date, no archeological evidence for his life has been found. This is not entirely unexpected as the time-period of his live falls during the Third Intermediate Period (dark age) in Egyptian history, and there are few records.

Several fragments of the Ascension of Moses have survived to the present, however, most of the work is likely lost forever. The Ascension of Moses is almost certainly the precursor to the Revelation of Metatron, in which Rabbi Ishmael was taken up to the sky by Metatron, the supreme archangel. In the Ascension of Moses, it was Moses who was taken up to the sky, and Metatron played a smaller role.

The book known as Secrets of Enoch is one of the most mysterious ancient texts to survive to the present, and no two analyses of it seem to concur. Almost all copies that have survived to the present are in the Old Slavonic language, the official language once used by the Orthodox church in Slavic nations.

The five books of Enoch are a collection of books written in Semitic languages, and often grouped together as the 'Book of Enoch,' or '1st Enoch.' The books were likely written at different points in time and different Semitic languages. The first book was the Book of the Watchers, which is generally considered to be the oldest book in the collection, however, the age of the book is debated.
5th Enoch: Letter of Enoch

The Letter of Enoch is the fifth and final book of the five books that have survived in the Ge'ez language. Fragments of it have been found among the Dead Sea Scrolls, along with fragments of the Book of the Watchers, Book of Parables, and Dream Visions, proving it has circulated with them since at least the 3rd-century BC. It is very unlikely that the Letter of Enoch predates the 3rd-century BC.
4th Enoch: Dream Visions
Series: Books of Enoch and Metatron. Price: $2.99 USD. Words: 14,490. Language: American English. Published: April 23, 2020. Categories: Nonfiction » Religion & Spirituality » Biblical Studies / Old Testament, Nonfiction » Religion & Spirituality » Judaism / Sacred Writings
The book of Dream Vision appears to been compiled from an older Canaanite text in the early Persian era and was likely attached to the Astronomical Book from the beginning. The book of Dreams and Visions is likely the first attempt to retell the history of the world from the point of view of sheep. In this case Israeli sheep, who had to contend with Egyptian wolves and Babylonian lions.
3rd Enoch: Astronomical Book
Series: Books of Enoch and Metatron. Price: $2.99 USD. Words: 9,890. Language: American English. Published: April 21, 2020. Categories: Nonfiction » Religion & Spirituality » Biblical Commentary / Old Testament, Nonfiction » Religion & Spirituality » Judaism / Sacred Writings
The Astronomical Book explains a very different version of reality from the one that most people believe in today: a flat world with a physical sky above it. In this other world, the sun, moon, and stars all enter the space under the sky through portals at the east edge of the world and exit through the portals at the western edge of the world.
2nd Enoch: Book of Parables
Series: Books of Enoch and Metatron. Price: $3.99 USD. Words: 19,810. Language: English. Published: April 19, 2020. Categories: Nonfiction » Religion & Spirituality » Judaism / Sacred Writings, Nonfiction » Religion & Spirituality » Biblical Studies / Old Testament
The Book of Parables is unique in that no fragments of it have yet been documented within the Dead Sea scrolls. As the Books of Enoch have traditionally been used by the Beta-Israel community, and it is likely a book they carried south from Egypt to Kush and later the Ethiopian highlands, the Book of Parables must have been part of the collection before 200 BC.

The Song of Songs, also called the Song of Solomon, or the Canticle of Canticles, is a song about King Solomon theoretically written in his time, circa 950 BC. The book does not list its author, but it was clearly written by a woman in love with Solomon. She is believed to have been referring to herself as a Shulamite in chapter 7, which suggests she was Abishag the Shulamite.
Apocalypses of Ezra Collection

In the early centuries of the Christian era, several texts called the Apocalypse of Ezra were in circulation among Jews and Christians. The original is believed to have been written in Hebrew, Aramaic, or Syriac, and is commonly known as the Jewish Apocalypse of Ezra. This version was translated into Greek sometime before 200 AD and circulated widely within the early Christian churches.
Greek Apocalypse of Ezra

The Greek Apocalypse of Ezra is a third Apocalypse of Ezra, which has only survived in two copies both dating to before the 9th-century. It is a separate text from the Jewish or Latin Apocalypses of Ezra and appears to be a Christian-era composite of various Ezra related materials. The bulk of the material is unique, describing Ezra's journey through the sky (Heaven) and the underworld (Tartarus).

In the early centuries of the Christian era, several texts called the Apocalypse of Ezra were in circulation among Jews and Christians. The popularity of the original Jewish Apocalypse of Ezra seems to have inspired several 'Christian' Apocalypses of Ezra, presumably beginning with the 'Latin' Apocalypse of Ezra which claimed to be the "second book of the prophet Ezra."
