Why Read The Book of Enoch?
Many scholars once thought the Book of Enoch was written after the New Testament simply because the parallels were too great. It had to be written after. But the Dead Sea Scrolls and other writings proved the Book of Enoch came first.
This means nearly all of the New Testament writers were influenced by Enoch in their writing of scripture because Enoch is heavily reflected in their work. Even Jesus Christ alludes to images, themes, and ideas from this book. Enoch was part of Jewish tradition at the time and is just one of many outside works alluded to in the Holy Bible.
(Not to be confused with the hoax writings in the Slavonic Enoch called The Secrets of Enoch/2 Enoch or the Hebrew Enoch called The Revelation of Metatron/3 Enoch. These post-New Testament works have nothing to do with the Book of Enoch and are proven fabrications.)
The Holy Bible can be fully read and understood on its own, but the Book of Enoch brings greater clarity and context to confusing passages and ideas. For example, Revelation is often considered one of the most perplexing books of the Bible, and much of Revelation is an adapted retelling of the Book of Enoch.
Most importantly, the Book of Enoch does not bring new revelation to the Holy Bible. It does not alter or recontextualize scripture. Every idea and theme from Enoch is already present in the Bible. This work can be studied to great benefit without fear of tainted doctrine.
