You made mistakes in your arguments against the book of Enoch.


After reading your comments and views on the book of Enoch, I have felt that I must inform you that your claims have no substance whatsoever. For me to sit here now and go through each one of them one by one would be very time consuming; however, lingering on your last few most bold claims I must say the following:

IV (D) Does it match the Bible: (In reference to your points b and c and d)

Firstly if you had carefully done your research you would have noticed that it mentions in chapter 106:7 the following:

And now my father, I am here to petition thee and implore thee that though mayest go to Enoch, our father, and learn from him the truth, for his dwelling place is amongst the angels.’

Sorry, but need I say no more for I  shall leave the rest for you to work out. The above verse completely makes your critics in points c and d incorrect.

Again let us look at the following:

IV (3) Knowledge about angels wrong

You state in point (a) that: The Book of Enoch has angels marrying earthly women; (which I must conclude is correct). (And? what is your point?)

In point b though you go further on the subject and say ‘Mark 12:25’ – Angels don’t marry, which again is correct; Depending though how you look at it.

So; let us look at the whole context of the verse in question:

Mk 12:25 “For when they shall rise from the dead, they neither marry, nor are given in marriage; but are as the angels which are in heaven.”

Now let me break this down for you. Mark claims that when they rise from the dead they will neither marry, or be given in marriage just like the Angels in HEAVEN. I hate to break it to you but these fallen angels were no longer in heaven. This does not mean that they were permitted to marry like man was; God forbid; however it did mean that if they wanted to they could and so they did. Thus the immediate judgement that was brought on them immediately after their children were killed. You know, there is plenty proof and instance or occasions if you prefer when angels appeared unto man in their physical form and ate and spoke. ‘Sodom & Gomorrah’ for example or even when Abraham had his wife prepare something to eat when the angels came to his household to give him the message about his wife.


I understand that when a thorough argument is made that it is too time consuming to come up with rebuttals. It is so much easier to find what you think is a weak point, argue against that because then you can claim that all of it is wrong without ever having to address the points to which you have no answers.

From the book of Enoch 106:5-9:

"... And he said unto him: I have begotten a strange son, diverse from and unlike man, and resembling the sons of the God of heaven; and his nature is different and he is not like us, and his eyes are as the rays of the sun, and his countenance is glorious. And it seems to me that he is not sprung from me but from the angels, and I fear that in his days a wonder may be wrought on the earth. And now, my father, I am here to petition thee and implore thee that thou mayest go to Enoch, our father, and learn from him the truth, for his dwelling-place is amongst the angels. And when Methuselah heard the words of his son, he came to me to the ends of the earth; for he had heard that I was there ..."

The book of Enoch claims that Enoch was among the angels, but Methuselah found him by going to the ends of the earth. Since he is supposedly still on earth, though among the angels, God had not yet taken him. And that is also hinted at in this passage since it is mentioned that a miracle would happen in the future involving Enoch. Thus the point made remains. The book of Enoch has Enoch talking about Noah's birth. But according to the Bible Enoch was taken from the earth 69 years before Noah was born. The writer of the book of Enoch got his facts wrong. The point stands.

In Mark 12:25, Jesus is stating that the angel's dwelling place is in heaven. "For when they rise from the dead, they neither marry nor are given in marriage, but are like angels in heaven" (Mark 12:25). The grammar of the statement does not allow the preposition "in heaven" to modify when angels marry (Greek is stricter than English in this respect). Thus, it cannot be read that angels only avoid marriage while in heaven.

"As angels in heaven (hôs aggeloi en tôi ouranôi). So Matthew 22:30. Luke 20:36 has "equal unto the angels" (isaggeloi). "Their equality with angels consists in their deliverance from mortality and its consequences" (Swete). The angels are directly created, not procreated" (A.T. Robinson, Word Pictures in the New Testament).

"For when they shall rise from the dead, they neither marry, nor are given in marriage--"neither can they die any more" (Luke 20:36). Marriage is ordained to perpetuate the human family; but as there will be no breaches by death in the future state, this ordinance will cease" (Jamieson, Fausett, Brown Commentary).

Your argument is based on an abuse of grammar which is provably unsupported by the text. Once again the original point stands. The writer of the book of Enoch did not understand the spiritual realm.
