[It is always the general rule of thumb not to solely take the author’s word throughout these studies, but to pray and seek the face of Yahuah for one’s self, and let the Spirit lead you into all truth (John 16:13-15).]
For the first time, lost texts from the Codex Pseudepigraphus Veteris Testamenti are being translated from the Latin to English. The finds are biblically astounding! In this case we have what seems to be an Inspired scripture likely, at its source, genuine to its time to the Days of Jared (in the times of Genesis 6 in our Bibles). What’s amazing about this passage is that it seems to cover a truth of in the complexity regarding the revelation of Christ within the Law and the Prophets — a subject many Jews and Christians debate and battle with today! Now, of course the Five Books of Moses where not written yet in days of Jared, but with deep study and an understanding of extra canonical texts like Jubilees, Jasher, Enoch, Cave of Treasures, Writing of Abraham — and the like! — we can discern an astounding truth being formulated in this passage; following the Ecclesiastes 1:9 and 3:13 rules of thumb in understanding scripture, and the ways of Yahuah. We also see, what would seem to be an early type-and-shadow of the active and redeemed First Fruits Harvest of Yah’s people, as we see in Acts 2! —First let’s get to the translation:
The remaining texts found bound to this passage shows to be an excerpt from a 9th century work entitled The Chronography of George Syncellus. For this specific project, this text, for now, is irrelevant; as we are solely interested in the mysterious passages — seemingly genuine — found in Codex, that have apparently never been translated to English before.

Whereby [Here is] the absolute truth of the (*Jewish precepts), however, nothing is brought to remembrance (*CHRISTUS), solely the older laws are brought to an account, that is: ‘Do not murder’, ‘Do not commit adultery (which also is murder)’, ‘Do not forswear’: These things, however, were at the Beginning among the nations so that it were ready to test, as once promulgated by Enoch and Seth, and the rest of them similar to the Just, with the same bright nature who were delivered unto the Angels, qualifying the tempered Man through grace and truth, who will not be judged [in the Law] (*I am not come to destroy the law). This is the truth says the Law and the Prophets.
