We have been given added scriptures for a wonderful reason

As I read in chapter four of the Old Testament, I found the witness that we needed more scripture, beyond the Bible; to be the most beneficial truth that learned this week, during my Old Testament Study.

In Genesis 4, it is perceived that Eve's first children were Abel and Cain.

Even without the added knowledge that we have as members of Jesus Christ's church on the earth;

that there was  a need for a more complete scripture on our earth...

Anyone can clearly see that there is missing information in this chapter in Genesis.

In verse 17 of Genesis Chapter 4 it states that " Cain knew his wife ; and she conceived and bare Enoch."

(Note that in the footnote of Genesis 4:17(b) it states, "Do not confuse Enoch of Cain's lineage and the city of his name with the Enoch of Seth's lineage and the city (Zion) of his name. See Moses 6:21-7:69.)

Yet, without the Pearl of Great Price, one is left to wonder where this wife came from? As no other reference to Eve having more children was given.

In Moses 5:2 we have that missing information,as it explains that Adam and Eve had many children before Cain and Abel were born.

I am continually thankful for the sacred addition of books, beyond the Bible, that we have in Jesus Christ's church.

I say this in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
