About the Book of Enoch(Also known as "Ethiopian Enoch")The Book of Enoch (also known as 1 Enoch) was once cherished by Jews andChristians alike, this book later fell into disfavor with powerful theologians precisely because of its controversial statements on the nature and deeds of thefallen angels.The Enochian writings, in addition to many other writings that were excluded (orlost) from the Bible (i.e., the Book of Tobit, Esdras, etc.) were widely recognizedby many of the early church fathers as "Apocryphal" writings. The term"apocrypha" is derived from the Greek word meaning "hidden" or "secret".Originally, the import of the term may have been complimentary in that the termwas applied to sacred books whose contents were too exalted to be madeavailable to the general public.In Dan. 12:9-10 we hear of words that are shut up until the end of time and,words that the wise shall understand and the wicked shall not. In addition, 4 Ezra14:44ff. mentions 94 books, of which 24 (the OT) were to be published and 70were to be delivered only to the wise among the people. Gradually, the term"apocrypha" took on a pejorative connotation, for the orthodoxy of these hiddenbooks was often questionable. Origen (Comm. in Matt. 10.18; p. 13.881)distinguished between books that were to be read in public worship andapocryphal books. Because these secret books were often preserved for usewithin the esoteric circles of the divinely - knit believers, many of the critically spirited or "unenlightened" Church Fathers found themselves outside the realmof understanding, and therefore came to apply the term "apocryphal" to, whatthey claimed to be, heretical works which were forbidden to be read.In Protestant parlance, "the Apocrypha" designate 15 works, all but one of whichare Jewish in origin and found in the Septuagint (parts of 2 Esdras are Christianand Latin in origin). Although some of them were composed in Palestine inAramaic or Hebrew, they were not accepted into the Jewish canon formed late inthe 2nd century AD (Canonicity, 67:31-35). The Reformers, influenced by the

Jewish canon of the Old Testament, did not consider these books on a par withthe rest of the Scriptures; thus the custom arose of making the Apocrypha aseparate section in the Protestant Bible, or sometimes even of omitting thementirely (Canonicity, 67:44-46). The Catholic view, expressed as a doctrine offaith at the Council of Trent, is that 12 of these 15 works (in a differentenumeration, however) are canonical Scripture; they are called theDeuterocanonical Books (Canonicity, 67:21, 42-43).The three books of the Protestant Apocrypha that are not accepted by Catholicsare 1-2 Esdras and the Prayer of Manasseh. The theme of the Book of Enochdealing with the nature and deeds of the fallen angels so infuriated the laterChurch fathers that one, Filastrius, actually condemned it openly as heresy(Filastrius, Liber de Haeresibus, no. 108). Nor did the rabbis deign to givecredence to the book's teaching about angels. Rabbi Simeon ben Jochai in thesecond century A.D. pronounced a curse upon those who believed it (Delitzsch,p. 223). So the book was denounced, banned, cursed, no doubt burned andshredded - and last but not least, lost (and conveniently forgotten) for a thousandyears. But with an uncanny persistence, the Book of Enoch found its way backinto circulation two centuries ago.In 1773, rumors of a surviving copy of the book drew Scottish explorer JamesBruce to distant Ethiopia. True to hearsay, the Book of Enoch had beenpreserved by the Ethiopic church, which put it right alongside the other books ofthe Bible. Bruce secured not one, but three Ethiopic copies of the book andbrought them back to Europe and Britain. When in 1821 Dr. Richard Laurence, aHebrew professor at Oxford, produced the first English translation of the work,the modern world gained its first glimpse of the forbidden mysteries of Enoch.Most scholars say that the present form of the story in the Book of Enoch waspenned sometime during the second century B.C. and was popular for at leastfive hundred years. The earliest Ethiopic text was apparently made from a Greekmanuscript of the Book of Enoch, which itself was a copy of an earlier text. Theoriginal was apparently written in Semitic language, now thought to be Aramaic.Though it was once believed to be post-Christian (the similarities to Christianterminology and teaching are striking), recent discoveries of copies of the bookamong the Dead Sea Scrolls found at Qumran prove that the book was inexistence before the time of Jesus Christ. But the date of the original writingupon which the second century B.C. Qumran copies were based is shrouded in

obscurity. It is, in a word, old. It has been largely the opinion of historians thatthe book does not really contain the authentic words of the ancient biblicalpatriarch Enoch, since he would have lived (based on the chronologies in theBook of Genesis) several thousand years earlier than the first known appearanceof the book attributed to him. Although in the book he commands his sonMethuselah to preserve the book unto future generations, which in itself is a callto copy the books he wrote so they might not be lost to the ages.Despite its unknown origins, Christians once accepted the words of this Book ofEnoch as authentic scripture, especially the part about the fallen angels and theirprophesied judgment. In fact, many of the key concepts used by Jesus Christhimself seem directly connected to terms and ideas in the Book of Enoch. Thus,it is hard to avoid the conclusion that Jesus had not only studied the book, butalso respected it highly enough to adopt and elaborate on its specific descriptionsof the coming kingdom and its theme of inevitable judgment descending upon"the wicked" - the term most often used in the Old Testament to describe theWatchers.There is abundant proof that Christ approved of the Book of Enoch. Over ahundred phrases in the New Testament find precedents in the Book of Enoch.Another remarkable bit of evidence for the early Christians' acceptance of theBook of Enoch was for many years buried under the King James Bible'smistranslation of Luke 9:35, describing the transfiguration of Christ: "And therecame a voice out of the cloud, saying, 'This is my beloved Son: hear him."Apparently the translator here wished to make this verse agree with a similarverse in Matthew and Mark. But Luke's verse in the original Greek reads: "Thisis my Son, the Elect One (from the Greek ho eklelegmenos, lit., "the elect one"):hear him." The "Elect One" is a most significant term (found fourteen times) inthe Book of Enoch. If the book was indeed known to the apostles of Christ, withits abundant descriptions of the Elect One who should "sit upon the throne ofglory" and the Elect One who should "dwell in the midst of them," then the greatscriptural authenticity is accorded to the Book of Enoch when the "voice out ofthe cloud" tells the apostles, "This is my Son, the Elect One" - the one promisedin the Book of Enoch.The Book of Jude tells us in verse 14 that "Enoch, the seventh from Adam,prophesied." Jude also, in verse 15, makes a direct reference to the Book ofEnoch (2:1), where he writes, "to execute judgment on all, to convict all who areungodly." The time difference between Enoch and Jude is approximately 3400

years. Therefore, Jude's reference to the Enoch's prophesies strongly leanstoward the conclusion that these written prophesies were available to him at thattime.Fragments of ten Enoch manuscripts were found among the Dead Sea Scrolls.The famous scrolls actually comprise only one part of the total findings atQumran. Much of the rest was Enochian literature, copies of the Book of Enoch,and other apocryphal works in the Enochian tradition, like the Book of Jubilees.With so many copies around, the Essenes could well have used the Enochianwritings as a community prayer book or teacher's manual and study text.The Book of Enoch was also used by writers of the non-canonical (i.e.apocryphal or "hidden") texts. The author of the apocryphal Epistle of Barnabasquotes the Book of Enoch three times, twice calling it "the Scripture," a termspecifically denoting the inspired Word of God (Epis. of Barnabas 4:3, 16:5,6).Other apocryphal works reflect knowledge of the Enoch story of the Watchers,notably the Testaments of the Twelve Patriarchs and the Book of Jubilees.Many of the early church fathers also supported the Enochian writings. JustinMartyr ascribed all evil to demons whom he alleged to be the offspring of theangels who fell through lust for women-directly referencing the Enochianwritings. Athenagoras, writing in his work called Legatio in about 170 A.D.,regards Enoch as a true prophet. He describes the angels which "violated boththeir own nature and their office." In his writings, he goes into detail about thenature of fallen angels and the cause of their fall, which comes directly from theEnochian writings.Many other church fathers: Tatian (110-172); Irenaeus, Bishop of Lyons (115185); Clement of Alexandria (150-220); Tertullian (160-230); Origen (186-255);Lactantius (260-330); in addition to: Methodius of Philippi, Minucius Felix,Commodianus, and Ambrose of Milanalso-also approved of and supported theEnochian writings.The twentieth-century discovery of several Aramaic Enochian texts among theDead Sea Scrolls prompted Catholic scholar J.T. Milik to compile a completehistory of the Enochian writings, including translations of the Aramaicmanuscripts. Milik's 400-page book, published in 1976 by Oxford (J. T. Milik,ed. and trans., The Books of Enoch: Aramaic Fragments of Qumran Cave 4,Oxford: Clarendon Press, 1976) is a milestone in Enochian scholarship, and

Milik himself is no doubt one of the finest experts on the subject. His opinions,based as they are on years of in-depth research, are highly respected.One by one the arguments against the Book of Enoch fade away. The day maysoon arrive when the final complaints about the Book of Enoch's lack ofhistoricity and "late date" are also silenced by new evidence of the book's realantiquity. Such evidence would be perhaps the return of Enoch, of whom there isno record of ever dying but rather still living in the Kingdom of Heaven. It isappointed unto man once to die, so Enoch has to die once in order for thatScripture to be fulfilled. Spiritual scholars have attributed the fulfilment of theprophecies of Enoch being revealed in Revelation 11 of which we find the returnof Enoch with a second reprimand of the world for three and a half years.Wearing sackcloth and perhaps with Elijah for company - we may finally be ableto account of his life and times after hearing what he has to say in those days tocome - until we see him finally die, lay lifeless for three days and then rise upinto the heavens yet again.- David Chariot

Book 1: The Watchers

Chapter 1The Words of the Blessing of Enoch1 The words of the blessing of Enoch, wherewith he blessed the elect andrighteous, who will be living in the days of tribulation, when all the wicked andgodless are to be removed.2 And Enoch, a righteous man whose eyes were opened by God took up hisparable and said, "I saw the vision of the Holy One in the heavens, which theangels showed me, and from them I heard everything, and from them Iunderstood as I saw, but not for this generation, but for a remote one which is forto come."3 Concerning the elect I said, and took up my parable concerning them: "TheHoly Great One will come forth from His dwelling,4 And the eternal God will tread upon the earth, even on Mount Sinai and willappear in the strength of His might from the heaven of heavens.5 And all shall be smitten with fear and the Watchers shall quake, and great fearand trembling shall seize them unto the ends of the earth.6 And the high mountains shall be shaken and
