Where is the Book of Jasher?

Joshua 10:13 King James Version (KJV)

13 And the sun stood still, and the moon stayed, until the people had avenged themselves upon their enemies. Is not this written in the book of Jasher? So the sun stood still in the midst of heaven, and hasted not to go down about a whole day.

[John 8:57] Refuting the Idea that Jesus and Abraham met in Genesis 18

Let’s examine how the Jews twisted/perverted the words of Jesus in John 8:56:. Unfortunately Trinitarians are gullible enough to believe what the Jews were saying, and ended up equating the Angel in Genesis 18 to Jesus.

[John 8:56] “My Day” does it refer to the Plains of Mamre or in the Future? (Differences in Biblical Commentaries)

Many Christians try to show the divinity of Christ, by equating him with the figure in Genesis 18 , ANGEL OF THE LORD. They refer to John 8:56 “Your father Abraham rejoiced to see My day, and he saw it and was glad.”, and in particular the wording “MY DAY“. Let us examine the different interpretations of Biblical commentors on this issue:

BLUE = Future
RED=Plains of Mamre

To conclude here, you will see that the MAJORITY of commentaries are referring to a FUTURE observance of Christ, as opposed to Jesus coming down in human form, in Genesis 18.

But as usual in John 8:57 , the Jews twisted the words of  Jesus and the Trinitarian Christians are gullible enough to accept their reasoning. In the next post we will see how commentators have understood the Jews were in-fact twisting or misinterpreting what Jesus was saying.
