Book Of Enoch Summary
1 Enoch: The Watchers tells the story of fallen angels from Gen 6:1-4 that took wives, created the Nephilim, and brought false teaching to mankind, ultimately leading to the great flood and their destruction.
2 Enoch: Similitudes is an apocalyptic book about the Son of Man and the Ancient of Days. These ancient prophecies of Jesus are directly in line with what we find in the Bible, and are remarkably similar to the book of Revelation.
3 Enoch: Journeys reveals incredible insights about the afterlife, heaven, and hell. It poetically lays out the eternal fate of humanity and the meaning of life in God.
4 Enoch: Noah is the untold story of Noah from the Bible. We learn more about his mission to save all humanity and the struggles of his father Lamech and his grandfather Methuselah.
5 Enoch: Luminaries is a detailed account of the stars and their functions. The imagery is similar to what we find the book of Job, where God presents creation and its mysteries to his servant Job.
6 Enoch: Dream Visions is a prophecy of human history, from the creation of mankind all the way to the end times and the final judgement. The past, present, and future are foretold in grand detail. The prophecy of weeks is similar to the prophecy structure in the book of Daniel.
7 Enoch: Epistle of Enoch reminds us how we should live. Enoch recounts the lessons and wisdom he has learned in life, and that ultimately we are all subject to God.
8 Enoch: Methuselah relates the birth of Noah, his calling, and offers prophecy to those in the last days.
