A much neglected key to a better understanding.,
This review is from: The Book of Enoch (Paperback)
This impressive translation is a true masterpieceand worthy of the uttermost attention. Any book that had the Church "Fathers" as spooked as this one did demands to be read. Unlike the mostly ridiculous Gnosic gospels also excluded from the Bible, this ancient Jewish text carries a divine authority that demands it be taken seriously. The very fact that the prophecies of Enoch were fulfilled to the letter in the timeframes suggested, should be reason enough for Christans to want to study it. The prophecy concerning the judgement of a wicked generation, seventy generations from Enoch (Christ's contemporary generation according to the gospel of Luke) found a devastating fulfillment in the fiery destruction of Jerusalem in AD 70, exactly as Christ predicted would befall his own generation!The majority of Christians may not accept Enoch as scripture but clearly Christ and his disciples did and I'm sure that Christ would agree that the majority are rarely, if ever right. Why not read these texts for yourself and make up your own mind what you believe? Maybe, as more and more Christians explore the Jewish roots of their faith, true Christianity will be restored and the foundations of "Churchianity" will be trampled into the dust where they belong! A truly compelling read and I very much urge you to try it.

Jesus Christ! Glad to see we're as gullible today as we were in the second century BC.

Trample them into the dust eh - what - by the four horseman of the apocalypse no doubt - in true Enochian/Revelations style? - even Nostradamus doesnt recommend that. The spirit of the Dermiurge lives on........
mmmm So - The majority are rarely right eh - Dermiurge not a believer in democracy then? ....... what a surprise.
