    Enoch ap­pears in the Book of Gen­e­sis of the Pen­ta­teuch as the sev­enth of the ten pre-Del­uge Pa­tri­archs. Gen­e­sis re­counts that each of the pre-Flood Pa­tri­archs lived for sev­eral cen­turies. Gen­e­sis 5 pro­vides a ge­neal­ogy of these ten fig­ures (from Adam to Noah), pro­vid­ing the age at which each fa­thered the next, and the age of each fig­ure at death. Enoch is con­sid­ered by many to be the ex­cep­tion, who is said to "not see death" (He­brews 11:5). Fur­ther­more, Gen­e­sis 5:22–29 states that Enoch lived 365 years, which is ex­tremely short in the con­text of his peers, who are all recorded as dying at over 700 years of age. The brief ac­count of Enoch in Gen­e­sis 5 ends with the cryp­tic note that "he [was]not; for God took him".

    Three ex­ten­sive apoc­ryphalworks are at­trib­uted to Enoch: 1. 1st Book of Enoch, or simply the Book of Enoch, written in Ge'ez (Ethiopic), first time brought in Europe by James Bruce and translated in English by August Dillmann and Reverent Schoode - recognized by the Ethiopian OrthodoxBible and usually dated between the third century BC and the first century AD. 2. 2nd Book of Enoch or the Book of the Secrets of Enoch, written in Old Bulgarian, Russian, Serbian and other slav languages, first translated in English by William Morfill - recognized by the Old SlavonicBible usually dated to the first century AD. 3. 3rd Book of Enoch, a Rabbinic text in Hebrew usually dated to the fifth century AD. These re­count how Enoch was taken up to Heaven and was ap­pointed guardian of all the ce­les­tial trea­sures, chief of the archangels, and the im­me­di­ate at­ten­dant on God's throne. He was sub­se­quently taught all se­crets and mys­ter­ies and, with all the an­gels at his back, ful­fil...

    New Testament

    The New Tes­ta­ment con­tains three ref­er­ences to Enoch. 1. The first is a brief mention in one of the genealogies of the ancestors of Jesus by Luke (Luke 3:37). 2. The second mention is in Hebrews 11: 5 (KJV) which says, "By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death; and was not found, because God had translated him: for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God." This suggests he did not experience the mortal death ascribed to Adam's other descendants...

    Early Christianity

    Early Chris­tian­ity con­tains var­i­ous tra­di­tions con­cern­ing the "trans­la­tion" of Enoch. Re­gard­ing the quo­ta­tion in Jude, most of early Chris­tian­ity con­sid­ered it an in­de­pen­dent quo­ta­tion pre-dat­ing the flood. Re­gard­ing the Book of Enoch it­self Ori­gen, Jerome and Au­gustin men­tion it, but as of no au­thor­ity. Justin, Athenago­ras, Ire­naeus, Clemens Alexan­dri­nus, Lac­tan­tius, and oth­ers bor­rowed an opin­ion out of this book of Enoch, that the an­gels had sex­u...

    Medieval and Reformation

    Ac­cord­ing to the Fig­urists (a group of Je­suit mis­sion­ar­ies mainly led by Joachim Bou­vet into China at the end of the sev­en­teenth and the be­gin­ning of the eigh­teenth cen­tury and based on ideas of Mat­teo Ricci 1552 to 1610), Fu Xiin China's an­cient his­tory is ac­tu­ally Enoch.

    In Islam, Enoch (Ara­bic: أَخْنُوخ‎, ro­man­ized: ʼAkhnūkh [com­monly in Is­lamic lit­er­a­ture]: ʼIdrīs إِِدْرِيس)) is iden­ti­fied with Idris, as for ex­am­ple by the His­tory of Al-Tabari in­tre­pre­ta­tion and the Mead­ows of Gold. The Quran con­tains two ref­er­ences to Idris; in Surah Al-An­biya (The Prophets) verse num­ber 85, and in Surah Maryam(Mary) verses 56-57: 1. (The Prophets, 21:85): "And the same blessing was bestowed upon Ismail and Idris and Zul-Kifl, because they all practised fortitude." 2. (Mary19:56-57): "And remember Idris in the Book; he was indeed very truthful, a Prophet. And We lifted him to a lofty station". Idris is closely linked in Mus­lim tra­di­tion with the ori­gin of writ­ing and other tech­ni­cal arts of civilization, in­clud­ing the study of as­tro­nom­i­cal phe­nom­ena, both of which Enoch is cred­ited with in the Tes­ta­ment of Abra­ham. Nonethe­less, al­though some Mus­lims view Enoch and Idris as the same prophet while oth­ers do not, many Mu...

    A genealogy tracing the descendants of Cain is given in Genesis 4, while the line from Seth down to Noah appears in Genesis 5. Scholars have noted similarities between these descents: most of the names in each are variants of those in the other, though their order differs, with the names of Enoch and Mahalalel/Mehujael switching places in the ...

    • Apocryphal Books of Enoch
    • Enoch in Christianity
    • Enoch in Islam

    Enoch appears in the Book of Genesis of the Pentateuch as the seventh of the ten pre-Deluge Patriarchs. Genesis recounts that each of the pre-Flood Patriarchs lived for several centuries. Genesis 5 provides a genealogy of these ten figures (from Adam to Noah), providing the age at which each fathered the next, and the age of each figure at death. Enoch is considered by many to be the exception, who is said to “not see death” (Hebrews 11:5). Furthermore, Genesis 5:22–29 states that Enoch lived 365 years, which is shorter than his peers, who are all recorded as dying at over 700 years of age. The brief account of Enoch in Genesis 5 ends with the cryptic note that “he [was]not; for God took him”.

    Three extensive Apocrypha are attributed to Enoch: 1. Book of Enoch, composed in a Semitic language and preserved in Ge’ez, first brought to Europe by James Bruce and translated in English by August Dillmann and Reverent Schoode– recognized by the Orthodox Tewahedo churches and usually dated between the third century BC and the first century AD. 2. Second Book of Enoch or the Book of the Secrets of Enoch, written in Old Bulgarian, first translated in English by William Morfill– usually dated to the first century AD. 3. 3 Enoch, a Rabbinic text in Hebrew usually dated to the fifth century AD. These recount how Enoch was taken up to Heaven and was appointed guardian of all the celestial treasures, chief of the archangels, and the immediate attendant on the Throne of God. He was subsequently taught all secrets and mysteries and, with all the angels at his back, fulfils of his own accord whatever comes out of the mouth of God, executing His decrees. Much esoteric literature like the 3 E...

    Influence in Christianity

    In The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints theologyIn early Christianity, use of the Book of Enoch as a divinely inspired text was widespread, since the canon had not yet been established definitively in the Church. Church Fathers such as Justin Martyr, Athenagoras of Athens, Irenaeus, Clement of Alexandria, Origen, Tertullian, and Lactantius all speak highly of Enoch and contain many allusions to the Book of Enoch as well as in some instances advocating explicitly for the use of the...

    In Islam, Enoch (Arabic: أَخْنُوخ‎, translit.ʼAkhnūkh [commonly in Islamic literature]: ʼIdrīs إِِدْرِيس)) is identified with Idris, as for example by the History of Al-Tabari intrepretation and the Meadows of Gold.The Quran contains two references to Idris; in Surah Al-Anbiya (The Prophets) verse number 85, and in Surah Maryam (Mary) verses 56–57: 1. (The Prophets, 21:85): “And the same blessing was bestowed upon Ismail and Idris and Zul-Kifl, because they all practised fortitude.” 2. (Mary19:56–57): “And remember Idris in the Book; he was indeed very truthful, a Prophet. And We lifted him to a lofty station”. Idris is closely linked in Muslim tradition with the origin of writing and other technical arts of civilization, including the study of astronomical phenomena, both of which Enoch is credited with in the Testament of Abraham.Nonetheless, although some Muslims view Enoch and Idris as the same prophet while others do not, many Muslims still honor Enoch as one of the earliest pr...

    Enoch was the son of Cain. The story of prophet Enoch (Idris) is mentioned in the Quran (Surah Maryam). He is praised as highly upright, pious, and that God raised him to a high place. Some said this place was the fourth heaven and some said the sixth. What is confirmed is that Prophet Enoch then came back to Earth after being raised to the heavens.

    Uriel is listed as the fourth angel in Christian Gnostics (under the name Phanuel), by Gregory the Great, [citation needed] and in the angelology of Pseudo-Dionysius. [citation needed] However, the Book of Enoch clearly distinguishes the two angels. Uriel means "God is my Light", whereas Phanuel means "Turn to God".

    In the Pearl of Great Price, considered scripture in the LDS movement, Enoch talks about shunning the descendants of Cain and that they had black skin: "And Enoch also beheld the residue of the people which were the sons of Adam; and they were a mixture of all the seed of Adam save it was the seed of Cain, for the seed of Cain were black, and had not place among them."

    The Book of Giants is an apocryphal Jewish book which expands the primeval creation to end of time narrative of the Hebrew Bible and, by its multifaceted elaborations on divine decrees of warning and doom, ties the ancient prophet Enoch closer to his generally recognized 'storyline' (as collectively put forth in various Enochic traditions) than does even the story's principal treatise of 1 Enoch.
