The Book of Enoch

Translated by R. H. Charles

'When fragments of the Book of Enoch were found among the Dead Sea Scrolls, it was realized that this was a very ancient text. Although it was known and used by the first Christians, it was not written by them but was a part of their Jewish heritage. Exactly when and where the book (or rather 'books', because it is a collection of texts) originated is still debated, but there is the distinct possibility that it is as old as some of the Old Testament . . . The greatest importance of Enoch is that it was not only a pre-Christian book, but also a post-Christian book, a text from their Jewish background kept and used by the earliest churches. When we use Enoch as a 'context' for the New Testament, many early Christian ideas come into a much clearer focus, and many of the gaps in the New Testament can be bridged.'

From The Lost Prophet: The Book of Enoch and its Influence on Christianity by Margaret Barker (SPCK/Abingdon Press 1988)

This masterly translation by R. H. Charles (1855-1931) remains the standard edition of the text in English. Universally recognised as the leading figure in Enoch scholarship this century, his work has yet to be surpassed.
