The book of Enoch; anyone familiar? What is your take on this?
Definition of a Veteran. A veteran is someone who, at one point in his life, wrote a blank check made payable to "The United States of America", for an amount of "up to and including his life." That is honor, and there are way too many people in this country who no longer understand it.

I have just seen a brief overview of it; I wanted to read it. I just wanted to hear

I've got it too... It's a very strange book. It mainly deals with the nephilim plus Enoch's visit to heaven. I would recommend reading it..

1Enoch, the Book of Watchers, is canon in the Ethopic Church.
Jude quotes from it and Revelation borrows heavy from it also.
While its authorship is debated and contested in its current form, some say that the original MAY indeed be much older than the 2nd century BC that most date it.
It is a fascinating read and I highly recommend it.
In some ways it explains a lot of the things the bible leaves "unclear" - where do these other "gods" come from and so forth.

How does one find a copy of the book of Enoch? I've only read excerpts from it and I'm very interested in it..since Enoch is one of 2 fully ascended people from the tens of thousands of years of OT history I would really like to know more.

http://www.sacred-texts.com/bib/boe/ I found this site where you can read it.
1Tim1:15-17
Here is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance: Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners of whom I am the worst. But for that very reason I was shown mercy so that in me, the worst of sinners, Christ Jesus might display his immense patience as an example for those who would believe in him and receive eternal life. Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory for ever and ever.Amen.

Ok so I have read about 60% or more of the book of Enoch from that site and was about to ask about the naming of the 2 witnesses that appear in Revelation. Now I can't find where I read it in Enoch without re reading the whole thing. Alot of people argue over what or who the 2 witnesses that preach in the holy city during the tribulation in Revelation are. Enoch says one of them is a returned Moses and the other I can't remember. It was a short name that I didn't recognize. It started with a vowel..A ..E or I. Anyone know what I'm talking about and who this 2nd witness is?
