Overview

The Bible, as we hold it today, is esteemed by many religious institutions and especially Conservative Christians to be the inspired, inerrant Word of God. This doctrinal position affirms that the Bible is unlike all other books or collections of works in that it is free of error due to having been “given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: that the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works” (2 Tim. 3:16, 17).

While no other text can claim this same unique authority, Apocryphal and Pseudepigraphal literature such as contained in the Book of Enoch, provides material that often precedes or follows the chronology of biblical texts, which frequently are used or assigned as supplemental works within academic settings to help students and scholars discover or better understand cultural and historical context within the Word of God. Whether or not the information contained in the apocryphal literature is entirely precise—as is the canon of Scripture—these ancient texts provide commentators’ valuable insight into what many ancient Jews and early Christians believed when, “God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets” (Heb. 1:1).

The first part of the Book of Enoch describes the fall of the Watchers, the angels who fathered the Nephilim. The remainder of the book describes Enoch's visits to heaven in the form of travels, visions and dreams, and his revelations.

NOTE: This book is part of the collection of Apocryphal and Pseudepigraphal literature found in "The Researchers Library of Ancient Texts: Volume One The Apocrypha Includes the Books of Enoch, Jasher, and Jubilees," which is also available on Kindle.

    very interesting ancient text

    i liked reading this book. the main complaint i have is that there is no table of contents for it. consequently, i highlighted each chapter, so at least i'd have a sense of referencing the text.

    This ancient book was left out of the Hebrew Bible, yet it has a very lengthy chronology, back to earliest generations of humanity. it's been around for a long time, and served well the observations on the cosmos,societal norms, and apochrophyl information. "Be good, not offensive, honor the Lord."

    Tg

    I bought this because ive been reading alot of other books that have mentioned this and fallen angels and nephilim and the elect one so i thought i would give it a go and see if i could comprehend it and finally know what authors are talking aboit when they mention this. Im not completeley done because it takes awhile to completeley know what is being said. However I now have a better understanding in all of it.

    Very Interesting!!!

    Wow! Very interesting to read! I've always wondered what happened to Enoch? Now I know! And why was it omitted from the Bible? It must have been too much for those that were in charge of assembling the Word!? Great insight into Heaven - and, the life of Enoch! It might just cause you to REALLY believe in Heaven and that there really is a God - AND judgement?!

    Awesome part of the Holy Bible that was not included. Such a shame.

    The Book of Enoch is very enlightening with answers to what you wonder about, defined in a way that is more easily understood than you may expect. I had a hard time putting it down. Check it out!

    Highly recommended - must read for further enlightenment of truth

    This book answers many questions that arise from comments made by prophets, the disciples and Jesus. This book should have been included in our bible, but some decided not to include these truths. I have found it worthy to be a reference in teaching and understanding our Holy Bible.
