The Book Of Enoch

Q. Do you believe in the book of Enoch? Do you think Enoch really wrote it?

A. Most scholars believe that the Book of Enoch was written by someone else, long after Enoch’s disappearance from Earth. I haven’t found a single Biblical scholar who will attest to its authenticity.

Neither the Rabbis who selected the books included in the Old Testament, nor the council of Bishops who did the same thing for the New chose to include Enoch among the canonized books.

It is included among the books of the Pseudepigraphica, a collection of writing thought to have some historical value, but not inspired by the Holy Spirit. (Pseudepigraphica is a big word for “false title.” It means they were written by some one other than their title would lead you to believe.)
