This is a NEW (2010) easy-to-read translation by ancient languages scholar Dr. A. Nyland and is NOT one of the many Public Domain translations of Enoch NOR IS IT A REWORDED PUBLIC DOMAIN VERSION of Enoch. Great advances which have been made in ancient word meaning in the last twenty years were unknown to the translators of the public domain versions of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. There are copious background notes and cross references to Bible verses.This book is an easy to read translation with cross references and notes.Despite the current trend for non-translators to reproduce public domain versions (both as is and disguised by slight rewording) as a commercial venture, be aware that such public domain versions do not take advantage of recent scholarship in word meaning or any corrections in translation.This new translation by Dr. A. Nyland contains all three books of Enoch:1 Enoch (Also called The Ethiopic Book of Enoch)2 Enoch (Also called The Slavonic Book of Enoch, The Secrets of Enoch). This volume contains the extended version of 2 Enoch, The Exaltation of Melchizedek.3 Enoch (Also called The Hebrew Book of Enoch)Note that this is Dr. Nyland's translation and NOT a public domain work.1 Enoch tells of the Watchers, a class of angel, who taught humans weapons, spell potions, root cuttings, astrology, astronomy, and alchemies. The Watchers also slept with human women and produced the Nephilim. For this, they were imprisoned and cast into Tartarus. This is also mentioned in the New Testament. In 2 Enoch, two angels take Enoch through the 7 heavens. This volume contains the extended version of 2 Enoch, The Exaltation of Melchizedek.In 3 Enoch, Enoch ascends to heaven and is transformed into the angel Metatron. This is about the Merkabah and is of interest to Kabbalists. People interested in Theosophy and Rosicrucianism will find this book invaluable. The Complete Books of Enoch is also an invaluable reference for those interested in Theology and it is also a valuable Christian reference.Dr. A. Nyland is an ancient language scholar and lexicographer who served as Faculty at the University of New England, Australia. Dr. Nyland is also the translator of "The Source New Testament with Extensive Notes on Greek Word Meaning," "The Book of Jubilees," "The Gospel of Thomas," the ancient Hittite "Kikkuli Text," and "The Psalms: Translation with Notes."

The Book of the Secrets of Enoch cannot fail to be of interest to students of Apocalyptic literature and of the origins of Christianity, It is with a view to help such that this the first edition of the book has been undertaken. In certain respects it will appeal also to specialists in Assyriology. So far indeed as it does so, I have been able to do little more than refer to the leading scholars in this depai DEGREEStment, as my knowledge of such subjects is very slight, and all seco
The text known as "Second Enoch," was discovered in 1886 by Professor Sokolov in the archives of the Belgrade Public Library. The Second Book of Enoch, or 2 Enoch was written in the latter half of the first century A.D. but had gone through alterations and additions to make it more acceptable to the Christian community. It was written in Slavonic but had evidence of being translated from another language. 2 Enoch has also been known by the title "The Secrets of Enoch." 2 Enoch and is an expansion of Genesis 5:21-32, taking the reader from the time of Enoch to the onset of the great flood of Noah's day.
The Book of the Secrets of Enoch was preserved only in the Slavonic tongue and was thought lost until 1892. Even when rediscovered it was thought that this text was just another version of the Ethiopic Book of Enoch; but the Secrets of Enoch is an entirely new pseudepigraph and not a version of the well-known Book of Enoch. It seems to have been translated from a lost Greek original and was written by a Coptic Jew in Alexandria during the earliest period of the Christian era. It is of no less value than the Ethiopic Enoch. Discoveries regarding the planets &c. which Joel circa 1200 AD ascribed to the god Seth are probably ultimately derived from this book. Likewise some statements on the Sabbath and the duration of the world found in Josephus and the Book of Jubilees should be ascribed to this source. Scholars of Babylonian traditions, apocalyptic Judaism, and mystical Christianity will find material of great interest. Ideas and phrases from this book may even have been incorporated into the Koran.

This volume cannot fail to be of interest to students of apocalyptic literature and of the origins of Christianity. It contains two works, "The Secrets of Enoch," which was previously known only in Russia, and "The Apocalypse of Baruch," which constitutes the last noble utterance of Judaism before the destruction of Jerusalem.

2017 Reprint of 1921 Edition. Full facsimile of the original edition, not reproduced with Optical Recognition Software. R. H. Charles provides a definitive translation of one of the most noted apocalyptic works still in existence. Often described as "the lost book" of the Bible, "The Book of Enoch" seems to have been written in Palestine by several different authors in the first and second centuries B.C. For hundreds of years it was accepted by the early church fathers, but it was rejected by the council of Laodicea in A.D. 364. Today, it remains a written remnant of the Apocalypse -- an ardent testament to hope and the triumph of good over evil in the dawning of a world to come. Rife with concepts of original sin, fallen angels, demonology, resurrection, and the last judgment, it is a vital document to the origins of Christianity.

The First Book of Enoch was lost for centuries to the western world although it was kept by the Ethiopian church. In 1773 the Scottish explorer James Bruce heard that the Book of Enoch may have been in Ethiopia so traveled there and procured three copies. In 1821 Richard Laurence, a professor of Hebrew at Oxford, produced the first English translation. Fragments of ten Enoch manuscripts were found among the Dead Sea Scrolls. It is quoted by New Testament Book of Jude. This book contains all sections of The First Book of Enoch: The Book of the Watchers The Book of Parables of Enoch The Astronomical Book The Book of Dream Visions The Epistle of Enoch It is of particular interest to anyone with an interest in angels and demons, or Bible history in general. The Books of Enoch: The Complete Set also contains 2 Enoch (also known as The Slavonic Enoch, or The Secrets of Enoch) and contains the Extended Version; and 3 Enoch (also known as The Hebrew Book of Enoch.)

It was a mention in the New Testament by Jude that alerted David Humphries to the existence of The Lost Book of Enoch, one of the greatest examples of early Hebraic literature and part of the canon, widely known by early Christians, until the fourth century, when it was banned by the church authorities and virtually disappeared. Enoch, father of Methuselah and of the seventh generation from Adam, walked with the Archangels who took him up to heaven and revealed to him the secrets of the universe and the future of mankind. He wrote down all he saw and learned for the benefit of his son and future generations. This is the background to the marvellous Apocalyptic vision which bears his name, composed in Aramaic and Hebrew verse between 200bc and 100ad by scholars who regarded themselves as the heirs to the prophets. For 1600 years, the book was lost; then, at the end of the 19th century, an Ethiopic manuscript was discovered. This book is based on scholarly reconstruction of the greatest of the Apocalypse sagas, now available for the first time to a wide audience.
