The Book of Enoch
The Book of Enoch, which is similar to the eschatology in the books of Daniel and Revelation, is one of many ancient pseudo-writings (falsely attributed works) that early scribes attribute to the pre-flood prophet Enoch, who was the great-grandfather of Noah (Genesis 5:18). Enoch is also one of the three people in the Holy Scriptures that was taken up or RAPTURED to heaven while still alive. The other people were the prophet Elijah (Eliyah) and Messiah Y’shua (Christ Jesus). The Holy Scriptures says "And Enoch walked with God, and he was not; for God took him” (Genesis 5:24). Readers see Enoch again in Hebrews 11:5 where it confirms his translation from mortality to immortality. According to many biblical scholars, the phrase "book of Enoch" usually refers to the book of First Enoch.
Found in Sumerian Cuneiform in 1927, it was ignored. Then, found again in Hebrew in 1946 in Qumran, the book became a problem, as it was found with the Dead Sea Scrolls of Isaiah, and had been treated, hitherto unknown, as one of the books of the Jewish holy texts. Strangely, the Book of Enoch mentions a number of things as does Genesis, but from the standpoint of Enoch, who never died, but was taken away.
The translator of this version is unknown. The Dead Sea Scrolls have been controversial since they were discovered,
