Overview

The Book of Jasher is a secular history covering a period from the creation to the period of the Judges in Israel. The book is referenced in the Holy Bible twice by two different authors. Three purported versions of the Jasher have been translated, but only this one is looked upon as authentic. The Prophet Joseph Smith quoted from it in Times and Seasons. Soon after, certain members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints secured the copyright and republished the work in 1887 in Salt Lake City.

The Book of Jasher is almost certainly authentic, as it contains many specific details which are in agreement with modern revelation, such as �The Book of Moses,� which was published before the Book of Jasher became available on the American continent. However, it seems to contain modifications from its original form. When studying it, the Lord's advice in Doctrine and Covenants 91 still stands and should be followed.

�Verily, thus saith the Lord unto you concerning the Apocrypha � There are many things contained therein that are true, and it is mostly translated correctly; There are many things contained therein that are not true, which are interpolations by the hands of men. Verily, I say unto you, that it is not needful that the Apocrypha should be translated. Therefore, whoso readeth it, let him understand, for the Spirit manifesteth truth; And whoso is enlightened by the Spirit shall obtain benefit And whoso receiveth not by the Spirit, cannot be benefited. Therefore it is not needful that it should be translated. Amen.� D&C 91:1-6
