Abstract:

In the Bible, enoch is the nane of four persons. The first is the oldest son of Cain (Gen. 4:17); the second, the son of Jared (Gen. 5:18); the third, the son of Midian (Gen. 25:4); the fourth, the oldest son of Reuben (Gen. 46:9; Ex. 6:14). The Book of Enoch is an old composition considered a pseudoepigraphal work meaning it has a hidden of unknown origin or it is known only in private circles. It was included with other apocryphal books in the Ethiopic Bible, which was composed by Syrian monks who had come to Ethiopia in the 5th century fleeing a Byzantine persecution. Nearly all of the church Fathers knew of an apocryphal Book of Enoch, and their description of the work and citations from it prove satisfactorily that it was virtually the same as that which now lies before us. According to some of them, such as Irenaeus, Tertullian etc. the Book of Enoch (1 Enoch) was rejected by the Jews and left out of the Jewish bible canon because it contained prophecies about Christ.

By the 4th century, it was excluded from the canon by most of the Christian church. Still today it's included in the biblical canon of the Ethiopian Orthodox Church and the Eritrean Orthodox Church. Among the apocryphal works one kind is embraced under the assumption of a super human source of information seeks to unravel the mysteries of the present and the future. The Book of Enoch is in this class. Two versions were called books of Enoch - an Ethiopic one (translated from Ethiopic) called '1 Enoch', by scholars and a Slavonic version identified as '2 Enoch', which is also known as The Book of the Secrets of Enoch. The discovery of the texts from Qumran Cave 4 has finally provided parts of the Aramaic original (Ethiopic version) of the Book of Enoch. Paleographic dating of the Enoch fragments found (4Q201) revealed it was copied around 200-150 BC. The first Ethiopic version publish in the West was printed in the 19th century.

1 Enoch is referred in Jude 14-15 and also in I Peter 3:19, 20 to En. 21:6. Concerning 2 Enoch, it Preserved solely in the Slavonic language. This version was rediscovered and printed in the 19th century. It has survived in about twenty manuscripts and fragments in Slavonic, copied from the 14th to the 18th century. Another Book called 3 Enoch, also known as The Hebrew Book of Enoch, is an Old Testament Apocryphal book by Rabbi Ishmael the High Prist. It has bben said that the book was written in the 2nd. Century CE. This book contains the revelations of Metatron to Rabbi Ishmael the High Prist.
