    That's very true. My father was raised Methodist before they became United Methodists. I'm sure he would hardly recognize his church today. His Holiness- living leanings have led him to a New life Fellowship, where he co pastors. I'd probably look to the Wesleyan Church rather than the Methodist for strict adherence to the principles of John and Charles Wesley: The Wesleyan Church....

    David, thank you once again for your response. I try to research a bit on my own, but sometimes having a personal perspective from a living, breathing human being helps as well.

    I will be honest - I do not know what I make of that verse. I might have to read the surrounding chapters as well.

    I have actually never heard of IOW, nor the denomination you are part of (there are so many!), but I do find it interesting that it accepts both trains of thought!

    Sure. There are several documents pseudepigraphal documents which are not canonical and the book of Book of Jubilees is just one of many.

    Here is an introduction by to the book by R.H. Charles which is a bit dated but nevertheless very useful.

    The Wesley Center Online: The Book Of Jubilees

    A translation of Jubilees can be found here:
