The Book of Enoch?

What do you think about the Book that claims to have been written by the Biblical Enoch?
We now know it was considered lost for more than 1,000-years, but later
Explorers rediscovered the book preserved only among the Jews and Christians of Ethiopia
Today, people all over the world are rediscovering the Book of Enoch for themselves.

Is it possible the Book of Enoch might be the world's oldest book?
Could it have actually been written by the Biblical Enoch?
How did the Book of Enoch become banned even though in ancient times it was so popular?
Does the Book of Enoch have a role to play in the destiny of the nation of Israel?

From the Preface to this Edition
What the Book of Enoch Offers Today's Reader

The translation of the Book of Enoch, being used in this edition was published a century ago by Robert Henry Charles. The readability and vivid style of Charles' translation still holds up after more than a century.

For this edition certain improvements have been made to the text. The non-user-friendly use of Roman numerals for chapters and verses has been eliminated. It is hoped the use of traditional numbering of chapters and verses will encourage quoting from the Book of Enoch in books, articles and Biblical studies and will render this edition a useful reference tool. Readers will no doubt find it easier to lookup: Enoch 105:2, rather than: Enoch CV:II!

For this edition the text has been set to single-column-paragraph style to help the reader differentiate between narration, dialogue, and the versified, poetry sections.

The Book of Enoch Messianic Prophecy Edition, introduced here for the first time, provides extensive cross-references to the Bible. These are fully cited in footnotes in order to eliminate the need for the reader to look up each one. This also makes it easier to see the thoroughly scriptural character of the Book of Enoch and to encourage further study. Explanatory study notes and article inserts are provided for difficult passages.

It is hoped this edition, with its articles and study aids, will help the reader to find the Book of Enoch a source of blessing and encouragement.

May the Book of Enoch receive its proper recognition in our day as the legacy of Israel, and the gift of the Church to the world so that many may discover its stunning testimony to Jesus Christ which was delivered before His first coming and in anticipation of His second.

From the Introduction

The Book of Enoch makes the claim for itself that it is the gathered writings of the pre-flood patriarch, Enoch. Enoch is mentioned only briefly in the Book of Genesis, the first book of the Bible. "Enoch walked with God and was not, for God took him" The Epistle of Jude in the New Testament quotes from the Book of Enoch, prefacing it with the statement, "Enoch, the seventh from Adam, prophesied."

In saying this, Jude tells us something about Enoch which the Book of Genesis does not. Enoch was a prophet.

From where did Jude gather that Enoch was a prophet? Under inspiration of the Holy Spirit, Jude quotes just one of Enoch's prophecies from the book bearing Enoch's name. Enoch's book happens to contain many prophecies concerning the future of the world and the end times. Both the Epistle of Jude and the Book of Enoch are in agreement that Enoch was a prophet.

If the Book of Enoch truly was written by the Biblical Enoch, that would make it the oldest book in the world!

If so, that makes the book's claims for itself all the more incredible, for, in the first chapter of the book, the writer claims his book is for the purpose of being a blessing to the last generation who will be alive on the earth when God comes to establish his kingdom among humanity. Is the Book of Enoch really written by the Biblical Enoch? Is the Book of Enoch the world's oldest book written for the world's last generation?

This book is being offered as a kind of apologetic for the Book of Enoch; it is the thesis of this book that the Book of Enoch is in fact written by the Biblical patriarch.

In the area of Biblical and para-Biblical literature, the Book of Enoch occupies a place unlike any other. The book's history has led it from intense popularity in the past, to being banned. The book was then lost for more than 1,000 years, rediscovered, and today it is regaining some of its former popularity among Christians. Any book which has been quoted in the Bible, which has then had such a history, and which makes the claims for itself which the Book of Enoch makes, deserves our closer attention.

It is hoped the current volume will help bring attention to the Book of Enoch and become a blessing to the lives of many.
