Description

The Book of Enoch is an ancient Jewish religious work that historians believe dates back as far as 300 B.C. The book is traditionally ascribed to Enoch, the great-grandfather of Noah. It is not part of the biblical canon as used by Jews, but it is part of the biblical canon in the Ethiopian Orthodox Church and Eritrean Orthodox Church, but no other Christian group.

It is wholly extant only in the Ge'ez language, with Aramaic fragments from the Dead Sea Scrolls and a few Greek and Latin fragments. There is no consensus among scholars about the original language: some propose Aramaic, others Hebrew, while the probable thesis is that the book of Enoch, like Daniel, was composed partially in Aramaic and partially in Hebrew. 

A short section of the book of Enoch (1 En 1:9) is quoted in the New Testament, in Letter of Jude 1:14-15, and it is attributed in there to "Enoch the Seventh from Adam" (1 En 60:8). For this reason, some believe that all the writers of the New Testament were familiar with it and were influenced by it in thought and diction. 

This edition of the Book of Enoch is specially formatted with a Table of Contents
