1 Enoch is in the Bible even Today

Posted by NT Wrong on October 20, 2008

1 Enoch is a part of the canon of scripture in both Judaism and Christianity today. That is, 1 Enoch is a part of the Bible for both Jews and Christians.

It is recognised in both the smaller and broader canons of the Christian Ethiopian Church.

It is considered canonical by Falasha Jews.

Some groups within Judaism and Christianity do not consider it biblical, however. These groups include Orthodox, Reform, Conservative, and Reconstructionist Jews, Karaites, Samaritans, Roman Catholics, Protestants, Eastern Orthodox, Oriental Orthodox, and Assyrian Christians. By contrast, the citations of 1 Enoch before AD 200 in Christian documents all refer to the Enochian books as scripture.
