Is the Book of Enoch a lost book of the Bible? Find out now
The Book of Enoch, written during the second century B.C.E. by great-grandfather of Noah, is one of the most important non-canonical apocryphal works, and probably had a huge influence on early Christian, particularly Gnostic, beliefs. Filled with hallucinatory visions of heaven and hell, angels and devils, Enoch introduced concepts such as fallen angels, the appearance of a Messiah, Resurrection, a Final Judgement, and a Heavenly Kingdom on Earth.
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.
The book consists of five distinct major sections :
*The Book of the Watchers
*The Book of Parables of Enoch
*The Astronomical Book
*The Book of Dream Visions
*The Epistle of Enoch
