Book of Enoch is any of several works that attribute themselves to the biblical figure Enoch, great-grandfather of Noah. None of it is part of the biblical canon as used by Jews, apart from the Jews of Ethiopia, nor is it canon in the Christian churches, besides the Ethiopic Orthodox Church and The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, which consider only the first book to be inspired.

  • The Book of Enoch; older sections are estimated to date from around 300 BC, while the latest part (the Book of Parables) most likely dates from the 1st century BC.
  • The Second Book of Enoch dates to the 1st century AD and survives only in Old Church Slavonic
  • 3 Enoch dates to the 5th century and survives in Hebrew
