Hi Everyone,

...............................The "Book of Enoch" is in mentioned in the bible in Jude 1:14;
...............................though it is not canon, there is much information in this read.


.....................................................................CHAPTER 1

... 1. The words of the blessing of Enoch where-with he blessed the chosen and just, who will exist on the day of tribulation
when all the wicked and impious shall bere moved. 2. And answered and spoke Enoch, a just man, whose eyes were opened
by God so that he saw a holy vision in the heavens, which the angels showed to me, and from them I heard everything, and
I knew what I saw, but not for this generation, but for the far-off generations which are to come. 3. Concerning the chosen
I spoke and conversed concerning them with the Holy and Great One, who will come from his abode, the God of the world.
4. And from there he will step on to Mount Sinai, and appear with his hosts, and appear in the strength of his power from heaven.
5. And all will fear, and the watchers will tremble, and great fear and terror will seize them to the ends of the earth.
6. And the exalted mountains will be shaken, and the high hills will be lowered, and will melt like wax before the flame.
7. And the earth will be submerged, and everything that is on the earth will be destroyed, and there will be a judgment
upon every thing, and upon all the just. 8. But to the just he will give peace, and will protect the chosen, and mercy will
abide over them, and they will all be God’s, and will be prosperous and blessed, and the light of God will shine for them.
9. And behold, he comes with myriads of the holy to pass judgment upon them, and will destroy the impious, and will
call to account all flesh for everything the sinners and the impious have done and committed against him.


.....................................................................CHAPTER 2

...1. I observed everything that took place in the heavens, how the luminaries, which are in the heavens,
do not depart from their paths, that each one rises and sets in order, each in its time, and they do not depart from their laws.
2. See the earth and observe the things that are done on it, from the first to the last, how no work of God is irregular in appearing.
3. See the summer and the winter, how the whole earth is full of water, and clouds and dew and rain rest over it.


.....................................................................CHAPTER 3

...1. I observed and saw how all the trees appeared as if withered, and all their leaves are shaken off,
except fourteen trees, whose leaves are not shaken off, which abide with the old from two to three years, till the new come.


.....................................................................CHAPTER 4

...1. And again I observed the days of summer, how the sun is above it [i.e.the earth], opposite to it, but ye seek cool and shady places on
account of the heat of the sun, and the earth also burns with fervent heat, but ye cannot step on the earth or on a rock because of their heat.

Hi Everyone,

I will be post more of the book when I get time.
The "Book of Enoch" can also be read online.
It was translated by Rev. George Schodde.
And published by Warren F. Draper 1882.
Do a Google search if you cannot wait.

The Book of Enoch is intriguing. It's hard to tell if it's Hebrew Poetry or if it's literal or if it's some other kind of Hebrew writing. There are some issues with it, too. Enoch lived and was taken before the time of the flood. We're told that water hadn't come on the earth before the flood (no rain). But Enoch claims it rained. That's a little odd. Also, Enoch mentions 3000-cubit-tall giants. Some renderings say 300-cubit-tall giants. Even if 300-cubits tall is correct, that's 300x18 inches, which is 450 feet. I'm not saying it's not possible to have a 450 ft person, but it does seem very unlikely. I mean, how much plant life would that guy have to each every day to survive? How many animals would he consume? How would he grow that tall in the first place? Very strange. I have no clue if the book is saying it's real or figurative.

Just because the Bible mentions a book doesn't mean the book is a legitimate source of knowledge. Sometimes, the Bible references something to say, "See? Even the Gentiles understand this principle." So, the Book of Jude might be referring to the Book of Enoch in that way. Kind of like, "See that crazy book of Enoch? Even the writer of that thing understood this principle. Why can't you Disciples of the Way understand it, too?"

I've read a little of the Book of Enoch, but I really don't know how to take it. I'd have to go see what some scholars say about it. It's a tricky one.

I also didn't know quite how to take the book of Enoch.

I've read "Shepherd of Hermas" and loved that (It helped me spiritually at the time).

Atm I'm reading "St John of the Cross - Dark Night of the Soul" and I'm loving that.

I don't know about all of you, but how do you find reading on the computer compared to reading off paper? I print most readings.

Earlier I said it's hard to tell if the Book of Enoch is Hebrew Poetry. What I should've said is that I don't know if it's Hebrew Poetry or not, because I haven't tried to study its structure yet. If it's Hebrew poetry, then it's prophetic, most likely, which means it's using lots of symbolic language rather than literal language. I'll go back and fix that post.

As for reading on the computer, I'm okay with it, but I prefer reading from a book, personally. Though I guess each one has its advantages and disadvantages.

Hi Brian,

Where in the book of Enoch does it say how tall the Giants were?
