Analysis of the Lost Bibles

Prof. Ken Hanson shared his knowledge and analysis of the "Lost Bible" texts. These books, which were considered extraneous to the Bible, have been around for many centuries but most people are unaware of their existence, he said. Most were composed between 2,000 to 3,000 years ago in Hebrew and Aramaic but the originals were lost or deliberately suppressed, and parts were then copied and translated into other languages.

One such text, The Book of Jubilees, categorizes time into 50 year cycles, and contains apocryphal writings about the "end of days" when our planet will undergo catastrophic changes, he detailed. Another book tells of "Lilith," a first wife to Adam, who was created co-equally. Yet, because she would not subjugate herself to him, she was cast out, and then birthed a race of demons who persecuted the children of Eve. Hanson believes this story has an inner meaning with a strong feminist message.

The first book of Enoch describes "the Watchers" or Nephilim, and in one passage indicates they were eating humans, he noted. One interpretation is that the Nephilim might have destroyed humanity, if it hadn't been for the Great Flood. While Hanson believes the events in ancient texts had a basis in fact, he does not necessarily take them literally. The "golden thread" that holds the Lost Bibles together, he declared, is that "we are more than what we know—we are the very stuff of deity."
