A man of this stamp could not but appear peculiarly well fitted to serve as a medium through which to communicate to the world revelations regarding the divine mysteries, seeing that he had even been deemed worthy of immediate intercourse with God. Accordingly at a somewhat early period, probably as far back as the second century before Christ, an apocalyptic writing appeared purporting to have been composed by Enoch, which work was subsequently issued in an enlarged and revised form. This Book of Enoch was already known to the author of the Book of 'Jubilees' and of the 'Testaments of the Twelve Patriarchs,' and was afterwards a great favourite in the Christian Church. As is well known, it is quoted in the Epistle of Jude 14, 15 , while many of the Fathers use it without hesitation as the genuine production of Enoch, and as containing authentic divine revelations, although it has never been officially recognized by the Church as canonical.

First Book of Enoch , also called Ethiopic Book of Enoch , pseudepigraphal work not included in any canon of scripture whose only complete extant version is an Ethiopic translation of a previous Greek translation made in Palestine from the original Hebrew or Aramaic. Enoch, the seventh patriarch in the book of Genesis , was the subject of abundant apocryphal literature, especially during the Hellenistic period of Judaism 3rd century bc to 3rd century ad. At first revered only for his piety, he was later believed to be the recipient of secret knowledge from God. This portrait of Enoch as visionary was influenced by the Babylonian tradition of the 7th antediluvian king, Enmenduranna, who was linked to the sun god and received divine revelations.
