A Companion to the Book of Enoch
A Reader’s Commentary – Volume 2
The Parables of Enoch – I Enoch Chapters 37-71
The Book of Enoch was revered across the spectrum of Second Temple Judaism—those forms of Judaism that thrived in the “Intertestamental” period (ca. 500 B.C. to 100 A.D.). Though 1 Enoch was and is not considered canonical Scripture by the majority of Jewish and Christian authorities in antiquity, the book had a wide readership, including the authors of New Testament books. The content of 1 Enoch can be found in a number of passages in the New Testament.
A Companion to the Book of Enoch: A Reader’s Commentary, Volume 1: was written to fill a void and help us understand and appreciate this important and influential ancient book. It is based on the translation of 1 Enoch by R.H. Charles (1917).
Volume 2 of The Companion Guide to the Book of Enoch covers chapters 37-71.
