The Book of Jasher – Part Two: The Life & Times of Abraham the Star! Chs. 8-26

In Part-Two of The Book of Jasher I discuss the life and times of Abraham. As with Part-One I compared versions of the Jasher texts with each other and then with the Bible. I also threw in a whole heap of other information as well. Jasher certainly had much to say about Abraham, his life, his loves, his enemies, and his wars.
