Jesus Quotes Book of Enoch

For some time now, there has been a controversy in Christiandom as regards the authenticity of the book of Enoch.

A lot of persons are of the view that if the book really mattered, it would have been meant for the people that existed before Christ because the book was more than 300 years old when Jesus Christ was on earth.

Jesus Quotes Book of Enoch

Some people are of the view that the book is authentic because Jesus while on earth literally said things that pointed directly from the book. for instance;

In Mark 12 when Jesus was in a dialogue with the Sadducees, a question came up about marriage in heaven. Jesus answered them and said that they err in their question because they do not know the Scriptures, he proceeded to explain that angels do not marry.

Carrying out a thorough search in the bible, you’d see that there is really a place in the bible that talks about angels not marrying but yet, Jesus rebuked them for not knowing Scripture.

1st Enoch 15 quotes; the “Lord of spirits” declares that because the angels are everlasting, they have not been appointed wives.

You would agree with me that this is the first and only place talking about angels marrying and if Jesus equated knowing the Scripture to “knowing that angels do not marry”.

How Should Christians Treat the Book of Enoch?

Christians should regard the Book of Enoch like they treat other apocryphal literature. A few of Apocrypha’s assertions are accurate and factual, yet most of them are false and completely erroneous. I

If you choose to study these texts, they can be enjoyed as a novel with historical stories. You are not authorized to interpret them as God’s immutable, flawless, unambiguous, and powerful Word.

However, we strongly advise you to proceed with diligence and discernment when reading any of these works.

If you feel affected by Apocrypha’s words, put the texts away. Also, make it a point to read the Bible every day.

Although it’s entertaining to read non-biblical novels published thousands of years ago, believing in God’s Word is much more valuable.
