Why was the Book of Enoch omitted from the Bible..

    The book of Enoch taught women magic, the art of war

    and cosmetic..They felt this book was too far out in left field.

    The show "Bible secrets revealed".

    OK, magic vs having a monster baby by a Angel.

    So happy they omitted that book, otherwise women would

    be leaders of the militaries. Thinking about it, it may not be

    such a bad idea. LOL

    If it were included, it would just be another book like Genesis that is so ridiculous that it drives people away.

    Take for instance the Nephilim. Depending on translation, they are either 3000 ells or 300 cubits. Which is either 4500 feet tall or 450 feet tall. First of all it is physically impossible for anything shaped like a human to be that tall. Check out the square cube problem.

    Second, could you imagine a human woman carrying an infant to term that is 75 to 750 times larger than a human infant. Couldn't happen.

    jws; LOL. I thought about that (woman carrying an infant to term..75 to 750

    times larger than a human infant). So how big was the baby, 75lbs. Sh--t, is

    your wife still alive???

    It depends on whose Bible you're talking about. Enoch follows the pentatuch in the Ethiopian Orthodox Bible.

    Thanks GLTirebiter; I didn't know...

    Because it was unlikely to have been written by Enoch. It would have had to survive the ark, flood, and down through the patriarchs and the Egyptian enslavement.

    Enoch didn't die, he was taken to a special place Gen:5;23,24.

    He was the only one to sit with God and reveal information to

    humamity...Secret knowledge from God...

    It couldn't get the votes. It really is that simple.


  • jam

    That's funny, lets vote if this is God's word. No Angels, no prophet,

    not a booming voice from the Heavens, these are my words.

    Lets vote, next.

    Revelation is as outrageous as the book of Enoch. LOL

  • HowTheBibleWasCreated

    Because the stories were designed for a Jewish Mystical audiance. It needs to be noted that the writer of Jude (Second Centery CE) quote a verse from the book.

    Revelation's cosmology is based on the Book of Enoch.
