Description: Credited with predicting the flood and with foretelling a second punishment but mentioned only briefly in the Hebrew Bible, Enoch is one of the most intriguing yet little-known characters of ancient Jewish and Christian literature. Although Genesis devotes just four verses to him, Enoch became a central figure in many of the oldest surviving Jewish legends of apocalypse, the subject of a large number of traditions during the intertestamental period, and a significant character in early Christian writing. In this comprehensive survey of widespread ancient references to Enoch and to Enochian themes, James C. VanderKam illumines the range and character of ancient testimonies to the man, his teachings, and his work. VanderKam also explains why Enoch aroused such ardent admiration from some quarters and deep apprehension from others.
