The character of Enoch is apparently the great grandfather of Noah according to scripture. The book of Enoch as it exists today likely comes down to us in a form that it took during the pre christian era. The character of Enoch, however, is obviously antediluvian and as much as the book’s current form is a product of the centuries before the common era, there is of course the possibility that the stories do refer in one way or another to the times before the Flood. (And let’s not forget there is geological evidence of some sort of event or cataclysm like this happening somewhere around 11000 – 12000 years ago plus the plethora of flood stories from a wide variety of cultures the world over). I bought myself a new copy of the 3 books of Enoch and I’m loving it.
