#1

The Book of Enoch is an ancient book that contains a very clear supernatural interpretation of Genesis 6, with angelic Watchers mating with humans who birth giants that walk among us. It expands upon that view with a detailed story of how these Watchers influenced mankind with occultic revelations.

#2

The Old Testament mentions the patriarch Enoch only once, in Genesis 4:17, which describes how his city was named after him. He was the son of Jared, and the oldest man in the Bible. He lived 365 years, compared to the much longer time spans of those around him.

#3

The Book of Enoch is a collection of texts written by various authors around the period from 200 B. C. to about A. D. 200. They are either Jewish or Christian in origin, and they claim to contain God’s message.

#4

The Book of Enoch is an apocalyptic book that was written to comfort people who were suffering from contemporary oppression. It tells a detailed narrative of two hundred heavenly Watchers who rebel against God in heaven led by Semyaza and Azazel. They come to earth on Mount Hermon, mate with human women, and produce bloodthirsty hybrid giants as their progeny.

#5

The Book of Parables is the oldest portion of Enochic texts, dating to about the end of the 1st century B. C. It is a recounting of Enoch’s cosmic journey and vision of judgment upon the fallen angels and their wicked human counterparts, juxtaposed against the elevation of the holy, the righteous, and the elect.

#6

The book of Enoch tells the story of the fall of the Watchers and their mating with humans, which produced defiled giant offspring. The book also elaborates on the personal exploits of the giants from their perspective.

#7

The book of Enoch may be interesting religious and spiritual storytelling, but it was not considered to be Scripture by any of the ancient traditions. The only manuscript collection that includes 1 Enoch as canonical is the Ethiopic canon of the Coptic Church, which was established in the 13th century A. D.

#8

The Christian Church arose within a milieu of Jewish apocalypticism, and Enochic texts and traditions had a great influence on Christian thought outside the New Testament. However, some skeptics were influenced by biases apart from Biblical arguments.

#9

The doctrine of the Inspiration of Scripture is not like the claims of Islam. We do not believe that the human authors simply recorded the words of God like secretaries taking audible dictation. Rather, God providentially breathed his intent into the words that men were writing in very human contexts.

#10

1 Enoch is a book that was very influential on the New Testament, and it was quoted directly in the epistle of Jude. It was also used to develop the Son of Man Christology, which was portrayed in the Gospels.

#11

The strongest cases for New Testament literary dependence upon Enochic texts are the epistles of Jude, and 1 and 2 Peter. Jude quotes 1 Enoch 1:9 when he writes, It was also about these that Enoch, the seventh from Adam, prophesied, saying, ‘Behold, the Lord comes with ten thousands of his holy ones to execute judgement on all and to convict all the ungodly of all their deeds of ungodliness.

#12

The author of Jude quotes 1 Enoch, and follows the content patterns of 1 Enoch throughout his epistle. He also alludes and echoes the phrases and language of 1 Enoch.

#13

The Book of the Watchers is an Enochian motif that finds a strong presence in Jude. The wandering stars that Jude later condemns in v. 13 is a common ancient Jewish idiom in both the Old Testament and the Pseudepigrapha for divine celestial beings.

#14

The Greek words for gross immorality and strange flesh indicate a heightened form of sexual immorality, and the New Testament condemns homosexuality as sin. However, the sin of Sodom that is referenced by Jude and Peter is not so much homosexuality, but interspecies sexuality between angels and humans.

#15

1 Enoch contains the same themes of the fallen angels bound in chains, the Noah’s Flood/Sodom doublet, and judgment. The language is redundant with Jude, but Peter adds one element to the mix that further elucidates this Enochic connection.

#16

The passage in 1 Peter 3:18-20 is one of the most notoriously difficult passages in the New Testament to interpret. Some scholars argue that it is poetically describing Jesus Christ’s earthly ministry of preaching the Gospel to the spiritually imprisoned on earth after he rose from the dead. But the reflections of the Enochian Watcher incident are too strong to ignore.

#17

1 Enoch is a fascinating ancient manuscript with a long historical pedigree within Judaism and Christianity. It provides a glimpse into Second Temple Judaism and the development of Intertestamental interpretations that influenced the New Testament doctrines of Messiah and his kingdom, the Son of Man, demons, resurrection, and final judgment.
Insights from Chapter 2



#1

The Bible suggests that the gods of the ancient world were real spiritual beings with supernatural powers. However, these gods were actually fallen divine angelic beings called sons of God in the Bible. They had rebelled against God’s divine council in heaven and came to earth to corrupt God’s creation and deceive mankind into worshipping them in place of the real God.

#2

The Sons of God in Genesis 6 are typically understood to be heavenly angelic beings who came to earth and mated with human beings, thus violating the heavenly/earthly division that God established. The Nephilim were the offspring of this abominable union.

#3

The Sethite line was considered elect by God because they replaced the bloodline of the innocent Abel, who was murdered by Cain. However, they were not considered righteous, but wicked.

#4

The Sons of God are claimed to be human kings or magistrates that stood in the place of God over the people. This view argues that the Bible claims a certain god-like prerogative of those in authority.

#5

The Divine Kingship View, like its non-supernatural ancestor, the Sethite View, suffers from many problems that make it untenable. It is not ever connected to the concept of divine sonship only to direct representation of God.

#6

The supernatural view that interprets the Sons of God as angelic beings who came to earth and mated with human wom
