Enoch is mentioned in the book of Jude in the New Testament.

“And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints, to execute judgment upon all…”

Since Enoch is endorsed by Jude, it follows that Christians should also acknowledge his teaching as valuable. So, yes, Christians should read the Book of Enoch. Especially if they want to be inspired and have their faith strengthened at the same time!

But most Christians have never heard of the Book of Enoch.
The book itself is available to read free online to anybody that might be interested.

My experience in suggesting the book as valuable reading material to Christians has been met with skepticism.

Many people think, “The book of Enoch? Oh no, I only follow the Bible. Any books that are not part of the King James, that’s just heresy.”

These are often the same people who have an insatiable appetite for books by Max Lucado or C.S. Lewis as though they were gospel. Don’t get me wrong, these are great books for inspiration, but there is no comparison when it comes to ancient scriptures like The Book of Enoch.

As mentioned in Jude, Enoch was the seventh descendent of Adam. Genesis Chapter 5 explains that Enoch lived for 365 years, and then he was translated up into heaven. God took Enoch from the Earth because he found favor with God. Here is the lineage of Enoch:

  • Adam
  • Seth
  • Enosh
  • Cainan
  • Malalel
  • Jared
  • Enoch
  • Methuselah
  • Lamech
  • Noah
Enoch was the great grandfather of Noah.

The Book of Enoch deals with many mysteries. Some are explained clearly, while others remain shrouded in ambiguity.
The Book of Enoch is considered the oldest written document ever discovered. The most ancient copies were found in Ethiopia. This is not surprising since the book itself details the origin of writing.

Enoch explains the history of fallen angels who came to Earth to procreate with women. This was the source of the Nephilim. Most of the book is a first-person narrative by Enoch as he is taught and escorted by various Holy Angels in the heavenly realms.

Enoch goes on to relate visions he has seen, dictates parables, describes prophecies, and provide words of both admonishment and encouragement. It is truly a remarkable book.
Although only about 160 pages, it is packed with remarkable insights and revelations.

A recurring theme presented by Enoch is that everything is recorded and laid bare in the heavenly realms. It provides a vehement admonishment towards righteousness with depictions of the afterlife presented in vivid detail. Specific Angels are named and described by their various titles and responsibilities.

If you are a Christian and you are looking to read something that will inspire, encourage, and reveal ancient mysteries all at the same time, then The Book of Enoch is for you. You will not be disappointed.

Personally I feel that the Jews originally banning the book was satan's way of keeping it from us because of its importance and what it reveals because if people understood what is in it, they would think differently about hell. Secondly, the fact that it became unbanned and available is God's way of making sure mortal men have not silenced what men need to know. ( By men I mean mankind)

It speaks of enoch certainly, but it doesnt endorse the book of enoch as being from him. Thats the problem with most people.

Many translations are faulty as well, the translation from ethiopic by Robert Charles in 1912, the only translation authorized by the african churchs that first had opened its doors to its canonicity for itself, and holds the oldest versions short of those that were found in the dead sea scrolls.

only the oldest if its believed that Enoch wrote it

All this being said, there is a lot more about Enoch I could state, but without faith, there is no proof it is valid, just like with scripture.
