Why is The Book of Enoch so important to anyone interested in Biblical history?
The answer is simple: It is directly quoted in the New Testament by Jude (vv.14-15). Themes of the book referenced in 2 Peter 2:1. Jesus also used content from The Book of Enoch in many of his sermons in Matthew and Luke.
The first 36 chapters have been considered scripture in the Ethiopic Coptic Church (a church that ascribes their founder as the Apostle John).
It was one of the most significant Jewish Pseudepigrapha (writings ascribed to some other than the real author).
It is believed that The Book of Enoch was taken out of the Jewish Canon by the Sanhedrin just after Jesus' death because of the prophesies they thought pointed to Jesus as the Messiah. However, The Oxford Dictionary of the Christian Church states,
"...this view has been increasingly questioned, especially since the discovery of the Qumran fragments [where Dead Sea Scrolls were found]; for although all the other sections of 1 Enoch are well represented in these fragments, the messianic chapters (37-71) were not represented at all. Nor are they represented in the Greek and Latin fragments. It is probable, therefore, that they are a later (Christian) insertion into the Book and that it was the New Testament which influenced them rather than vice versa."
In this text, you will hear the word of God through this amazing document. We will take this amazing journey together and learn why this text is not an official book of the bible as well as other amazing fun facts and surprises.
So put your hand in mine and walk the same path that I walk as we enter into The Book of Enoch.

I really enjoyed this book. It took me places I can only hope to see in my eternal life. The way the narrator described the visions and/or experiences that Enoch saw was incredible. I felt as if I was there and could really picture all of it. Very informative and believable. Originally, I had picked out The Book of Enoch by a different author/narrator and disliked it so much that I had it completely removed from my device. I wanted no part of it. After listening to this particular book I knew I had made the right choice. It just felt right. Like the books of the Bible I felt as if this book had been written with Devine inspiration. I would highly recommend it to anyone who is interested in the books of the Bible and the Dead Sea Scrolls.
I have played this book multiple times and read along with the book of Enoch... Its a must have. Now Im waiting on the book of Jasher next in audibles hopefully they will get it soon.
The book of Enoch fills in the gaps and answers a lot of questions as well as brings light to a lot of falsehoods perpetuated by various religious institutions.
you shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free.
If you have strong faith you should listen .very well done! I loved the narration and the contents! I've had this book for years trying to read but was a book I couldn't stop Listening to! It helps me to listen as I am in bed quite a bit with pain and chronic fatigue. thank you for a job well done!! terry from Okla
any one seeking spiritual guidance should read this. allow your mind to explore the impossible.
