Over the years the book of Enoch has been widely debated by scholars as to its authenticity. Enoch was the son of Adam and the great-grandfather of Noah. Enoch was one of two people spoken of in the Bible who did not die and were taken to heaven by God. It is believed Enoch and Elijah (the other person who was taken by God) will return during the Tribulation Period as the two witnesses who will preach near the Western Wall, in Israel. These two will preach boldly against the Antichrist and plead with the people to repent and not follow the way of the Evil One. The book of Enoch is believed to have been written between 200 BC and sometime in the first century. The book was written by multiple authors in multiple chapters. Enoch is referred to as a pseudepigraphal work. This means it is not written by whom the stated author is. (Enoch lived more than 3,000 years before the book was written.). Many “historical” documentaries may sensationalize these types of writings by referring to them as “Lost Books” or “Hidden Books” of the Bible, but nothing could be further from the truth. Jewish and Christian scholars have both rejected these writings since they are not inspired by God. The book of Enoch is used by prophecy scholars in the Christian world for purely historical reference. It is not included in the official Bible cannon because it is not written by the biblical Enoch. It also contains many things that contradict the established cannon. For the sake of The Remnant Universe, some interesting stories which fit in with our universe are used without them being heretical or anti-Christian. Out of all of the chapters in Enoch, we stick with what scholars generally use, which is Chapter One. Chapter One is also acknowledged because it is quoted in some New Testament books, such as Jude. Many theologians find it useful and fascinating because it shows how early Jews interpreted the Old Testament. So, while it does not hold spiritual significance, it is an interesting read for those inclined to speculate on the supernatural realities of the antediluvian world.
