Devil's Claim To Moses' Body
Regardless of where the original quotation came from, it WAS referred to in Jude, which IS part of the Canon. So if Jude thought it was legitimate, who are we to argue?

Jack, I like your response. I believe it is most relevant.
My understanding of that scripture is a little different than most people and is based upon:
2cor 3:15 But even unto this day, when Moses is read, the veil is upon their heart.
Moses being the first 5 books of the Old Testament.
I believe the argument was not over the physical body of Moses, but an argument over scripture. Just my take on it???
If you don't believe Satan argues scripture read Matthew chapter 4.

The Jude reference comes from a well known, if obscure apochryphal book, the Apocolypse of Moses. For once, this isn't in the RCC Bible.
As it is very dubious in origin,m it has no legitimacy.

no,how could satan have control over a chosen vessel of god.he may have been upset because he didnt know where god had buried moses and jesus did.satan is jealous of christ because he did what satan couldnt do he humbled himself even to the death of the cross. m.love

The dispute between Satan and Michael over the body of Moses is a passing mention in Jude (one of the shortest books in the Bible) and is hardly worth trying to build a towering doctrine on.
The important thing is how Michael replied.

do you think satan wanted moses to remain unresurected until the roll call.

The body of Moses are the laws of Moses. Heylel is also known as the "accuser". He tries to use those laws to accuse us of sins.

Never dispuited it Jack, that books were left out that were included at one time.
2 examples: the Didachae, or the teachings of the Apostles and the Shepherd of Hermas. Both were inlcuded in the Sinaiticus, both make interesting reading, and both are now rejected.

There is nothing in the 66 books of the accepted Canon, Bible, that answers that question. So Paul tells Timothy in 2Tim 2:23 to avoid foolish and unlearned questions seeing they do gender strifes. rober3436

Interesting that Jude quotes it as being authoritative, though, isn't it?
It shows that what was "scripture" wasn't as cut-and-dried during Apostolic times as some would like to think.
