Essential research for students and scholars of Second Temple Judaism and the New Testament

Since Richard Laurence published the first English translation of 1 Enoch in 1821, its importance for an understanding of early Christianity has been generally recognized. The present volume is the first book of essays contributed by international specialists in Second Temple Judaism devoted to the significance of traditions found in 1 Enoch for the interpretation of the Synoptic Gospels in the New Testament. Areas covered by the contributions include demonology, Christology, angelology, cosmology, birth narratives, forgiveness of sins, veneration, wisdom, and priestly tradition.


  • Multiple approaches to thinking about the relationship between 1 Enoch and the Synoptic Gospels
  • Exploration of the common socio-cultural and religious framework within which the traditions concerning Enoch and Jesus developed
  • Articles presented at the Seventh Enoch Seminar in 2013
