COMMENTARY ON THE BOOKS OF ENOCH: This course consists of a detailed spoken reading and commentary on the Three Books of Enoch. They present a unique overview of the Books of Enoch, which were a milestone in Jewish apocalyptic literature. Enoch 1 was probably written in the few centuries leading up to the birth of Jesus Christ. The Commentary includes modern up to date scholarship from a variety of sources and goes into numerous questions in detail: who wrote the texts ? Were there several sources combined into one ? Who actually was or is Enoch ? Did Jesus Christ have a familiarity with this text and partly base his own unique self-understanding and sense of mission on it ? Why do so many phrases and ideas from the Book of Enoch find their way into the Christian New testament ? How was the Book preserved in Ethiopic and why is it in the Ethiopian Bible but not in the Catholic or Protestant Bibles ? What are the relations of the Book of Enoch to the Qabalah ? What is its relation to Gnosticism and to Gnostic writings ? How does the Book of Enoch explain the coming of evil to planet earth ? Who exactly were the fallen angels (Watchers) mentioned in the Book of Enoch ? Were they superior extra-terrestrial intelligences that could have visited planet earth in ancient times ? The Commentary presents a thorough overview of all these issues in depth and views them through the lens of the potential insights that transpersonal history can shed on more traditional historical scholarship. This Commentary is the most in-depth discussion of the Book of Enoch in the English language at present anywhere to be found. It should appeal to both advanced scholars, academics, students of the mysteries, Christians, Muslims, Jews, Pagans and anyone interested in making a contribution to peace through irenic scholarship and reflection at this critical time in earth’s history. Enoch is revered in Islamic thought as Idries and mentioned as such in the Quran. He is revered in the Bible and in Jewish mystical circles, and also in Christian thought. Ironically, the archetype of the original Enoch was probably a pagan sage from ancient Sumeria. The author is Chair of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission for the Middle East and hopes the commentary will shed light on new ways that creative thinkers, philosophers, theologians and esotericists from the Jewish, Muslim, Christian and Pagan communities can overcome their theological differences and contribute to a general all round reconciliation of ideas as a precursor to political and diplomatic peacemaking in the region. Enoch 2 was written perhaps at the same moment as Christ lived, in Alexandria, in circles similar to that of Philo; it presents an unparalleled insight into Mystical Judaism at this critical time in world history, and stems from exactly the same thought world that infused the thinking of Jesus and his disciples. It survived in a Slavonic text but Coptic fragments have now also been found. Enoch 3 was written in Hebrew and dates from around the 3-4th centuries AD, being written around the same time that the Talmud was being composed, and was probably written by a Jewish mystic living in Sassanian Babylon. It is part of the Merkavah Mystery tradition of esoteric Judaism and can be regarded as a proto-Qabalistic text. Each of these texts of Enoch, if properly understood, has great potential to heal and reconcile the eschatological and metaphysical wars between Judaism, Christianity and Islam. In the Koran, Enoch is called Idris, and was mentioned as a great prophet in whose lineage Moses, Christ and Muhammad all considered themselves to be operating. The original Enoch prophesied between Adam and Noah and thus at a time when all mankind still spoke one language, according to the Biblical and Enochian texts.
