Enoch, The Watchers and the Forgotten Mission of Jesus Christ
by Dr. Michael S. Heiser
Reversing Hermon is a groundbreaking work. It unveils what most in the modern Church have never heard regarding the sin of the Watchers, described in detail in 1 Enoch 6-16. For Jews of Jesus day, the Watchers were part of the explanation for why the world was so profoundly depraved. The Messiah would not just revoke the claim of Satan on human souls and estrangement from God, he would also bring the nations back into relationship with the true God by defeating the principalities and powers that governed them. Enoch’s retelling of Genesis 6:1-4 has been largely lost to a modern audience, but Reversing Hermon rectifies that situation.
Though every topic addressed in Reversing Hermon can be found in scholarly academic literature, Reversing Hermon is the first book to gather this information and make it accessible to Bible students everywhere. The book also includes lengthy appendices on the ancient debate on the inspiration of the Book of 1 Enoch, New Testament allusions to the book, and academic resources for studying 1 Enoch and the Book of Giants from the Dead Sea Scrolls.
