What About Enoch?

Q. I absolutely respect your knowledge of spiritual beliefs when it comes to the Bible etc. Will you on record tell us who follow your site, tell us is Enoch a TRUE Prophet of God? And should the book of Enoch never of been taken out of the Bible?

A. For the record, I believe that Enoch was a true prophet of God. According to Jude 14, Enoch gave what was likely the earliest prophecy of the 2nd Coming.

But he didn’t write the books that carry his name. They were written several thousand years later, about 200 BC, by someone else. To be included in the Bible as true first person accounts inspired by the Holy Spirit, books had to be written by the person whose name they bore, and had to be theologically consistent with other Bible books. The Books of Enoch are neither and that’s why they were excluded.
