Translated Dead Sea Scroll-Book Of Enoch
Hi,



I have been studying the Book of Enoch translated from the "Dead Sea Scrolls" found in the Qunran caves recently and would like to gain more knowledge and understanding of this and some of the other early Christian writings.



Would some of you who are studying any of the early writings or perhaps have been educated in this area please expound on what you consider authentic, what is not, etc, and why you believe the church of today should become aware of these writings and read them {or not}



I have been studying the book(s)of Enoch well into 10 years or more, and have begun to branch out into other writings. Sometimes it takes a while to filter through the "garbage" to get to the genuine.



Please feel free to express your knowledge and opinions!

Enoch was the seventh patriarch of the Book of Genesis, the son of Cain. He is the subject of several works of apocryphal literature, which describe him as having received secret knowledge from God. This mirrors the Babylonian myth of the king Enmenduranna, who received divine revelations from the sun god. There are actually TWO Books of Enoch:



The First Book of Enoch, also known as the Ethiopic Book of Enoch is a pseudepigraphical work (in other words not included in any canon of Biblical scripture). It is called "Ethiopic" because the only surviving version is an Ethiopic translation of an earlier Greek text, which was in turn a translation of an even earlier Hebrew text. Part of it is the "Apocalypse of Weeks", written about 168 BC. Other portions appear to have been written by a Jewish Christian in the 2nd century AD who wanted to use Enoch's name for his work to give it authority. Much of it has to do with the fate of the soul after death. The First Book of Enoch was originally accepted by the Christian Church but later excluded from Biblical canon.



The Second Book of Enoch, also known as the Slavonic Book of Enoch, another pseudepigraphical work. It is called Slavonic because the only surviving version is a Slavonic translation of an earlier Greek text. It is dated by scholars to the 7th century AD, and may be based in part on fragments from as far back as the 1st century BC. It starts with a description of Enoch's travels through seven tiers of heaven, goes on to describe how Enoch received wisdom from God, and then ends with Enoch's advice to his sons.



Neither the First Book of Enoch nor the Second Book of Enoch discuss witchcraft as such, though they do discuss heavenly structure and the inhabitants (angels and demons) of this structure.



To confuse matters further, the Elizabethan Alchemist and Ceremonial Magician John Dee and his assistant medium Edward Kelly, developed a system and language of magic which he called "Enochian". Dee authored several books, but none of them was called the "Book of Enoch".



Hope this helps...
