The Book of Enoch: Translated from the Ethiopic with Introduction and Notes
ByRev. George H. Schodde PH.D.
The Book of Enoch was revered by the Jews and Christians, but fell into disfavor among powerful theologians because of its descriptions of the nature and deeds of the fallen angels. Christians accepted the Book of Enoch as authentic scripture, especially the part about the fallen angels and their prophesied judgment. Key concepts from Jesus Christ himself seem directly connected to terms and ideas in the Book of Enoch. Thus, it is hard to avoid the conclusion that Jesus had studied and respected the book highly enough to adopt and elaborate on its specific descriptions of the coming kingdom and its theme of judgment upon "the wicked". There is abundant proof that Christ approved the Book of Enoch. Over a hundred phrases in the New Testament find precedents in the Book of Enoch. Two of these phrases are vs. 14 and 15 in the Book of Jude. The Book of Enoch is a "must-have" for all students of the Bible.
