The Book of Enoch

R. H. Charles Author

Image Not Available

The Book of Enoch was considered one of the most important books in early Christianity and was used widely, R.H. Charles, who translated the book, said, "the influence of 1 Enoch on the New Testament has been greater than that of all the other aprocryphid and pseudepigraphical books put together." One of the main influences from the book is its explanation of evil coming into the world with the arrival of the "fallen angels." Enoch functions as a scribe, writing up a petition on behalf of these fallen ones, to be given to higher powers for judgment. Enoch was apparently chosen for this duty because he was of a different nature than the angels. It appears that Christianity later adopted some of its ideas and philosophies from this book, including the Final Judgment the concept of demons, the Resurrection, the origins of evil, and the coming of a Messiah and Messianic Kingdom. This makes The Book of Enoch of immense importance, not only to the study of Christianity's origins, but to the possible reality of strange, otherworldly visions or visitations. If this book was so important to Christian beginnings, why was it removed from the canon and banned? Enoch had found and experienced God face to face, something which gnostics, always strive for. The Church opposed gnostics -- to them, they were heretics. Only now, after many centuries, are people rediscovering this book's value, along with its important counterpart. The Book of the Secrets of Enoch. Both of these important books are now shedding new light on Christian origins and otherworldly "encounters."
