The Book of Enoch by EnochR. H. Charles provides a definitive translation of one of the most noted apocalyptic works still in existence. Often described as the lost book of the Bible, The Book of Enoch seems to have been written in Palestine by several different authors in the first and second centuries B.C. For hundreds of years it was accepted by the early church fathers, but it was rejected by the council of Laodicea in A.D. 364. Today, it remains a written remnant of the Apocalypse — an ardent testament to hope and the triumph of good over evil in the dawning of a world to come. Rife with concepts of original sin, fallen angels, demonology, resurrection, and the last judgment, it is a vital document to the origins of Christianity.
The Book of Enoch is comprised of various monumental works: The Book of Enoch, The Parables, The Book of the Courses of the Heavenly Luminaries, The Dream Visions, The Concluding Section, and The Noah Fragments. Each work is independent, but all the works are bound by a common theme: the punishment of the wicked and the blessedness of the righteous. This edition, complete with analysis and notes, is an indispensable resource for the study and understanding of both the Old and New Testaments.

Seminary students today are not taught the many New Testament phrases and theological teachings which finds first precedence in 1 Enoch. There are well over a hundred such cross-references.

Enoch is the perfect puzzle-piece that seamlessly locks the Old and New Testaments together into a colorful tapestry. In Luke we read an account of the Sadducees, who did not believe in a resurrection from the dead, coming to Jesus with a question concerning which of seven brothers would be married to a woman in eternity if each in successive turn inherited her as a wife during their life on earth. He was saying wives were not appointed to angels. Such was the wickedness in the hearts of men when the inhabitants of Sodom had hoped to have intercourse with the visiting angels.
This book was also quoted by some 1st and 2nd century authors as in the Testaments of the Twelve Patriarchs.

It contains a description of the Son of Man as pre-existent. With Him was another being, whose countenance had the appearance of a man, and his face was full of graciousness, like one of the holy angels. I asked the angel who went with me [ He answered and said to me: 'This is the son of man who has righteousness, with whom dwells righteousness, and who reveals all the treasures of that which is hidden, because the Lord of the spirits has chosen him, and whose lot has the pre-eminence before the Lord of the spirits in uprightness for ever. This son of man whom you have seen shall raise up the kings and the mighty from their seats and the strong from their thrones, and shall loosen the reins of the strong and break the teeth of the sinners.
Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth. Mat The elect shall possess light, joy and peace, and they shall inherit the earth. Luke Woe to you who are rich, for in your riches have you trusted; but from your riches you shall be removed. Ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel. It had been good for that man if he had not been born. It would have been better for them, had they never been born.
