Enoch in Christianity – Founder of the Ancient Biblical City of Zion


Enoch in Christianity, the Founder of the Ancient Biblical City of Zion. Enoch in Christianity. The New Testament contains three references to Enoch. Thrice Great. The first is a brief mention in one of the genealogies of the ancestors of Jesus by Luke (Luke 3-37). 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 this is consistent with Genesis 5-24(KJV) which says, “And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him.” The third mention is in the Epistle of Jude (1-14–15) where the author attributes to “Enoch, the Seventh from Adam” a passage not found in Catholic and Protestant canons of the Old Testament. The quotation is believed by most modern scholars to be taken from 1 Enoch 1-9 which exists in Greek, in Ge-ez (as part of the Ethiopian Orthodox canon) and also in Aramaic among the Dead Sea Scrolls. Though the same scholars recognize that 1 Enoch 1-9 itself is a Midrash of the words of Moses “he came from the ten thousands of holy ones” from Deuteronomy 33-2. The introductory phrase “Enoch, the Seventh from Adam” is also found in 1 Enoch (1 Enoch 60-8) though not in the Old Testament. In the New Testament, this Enoch prophesies “to” ungodly men, that God shall come with His holy ones to judge and convict them (Jude 1-14–15) Which God is the big question here. In early Christianity, use of the Book of Enoch as a divinely inspired text was widespread.
