Contents:
Introduction ; 1 Enoch: an overview of the transmission history of the text and contemporary academic dialogue ; 1 Enoch in Jude and other early Christian texts ; 1 Enoch in other early Jewish and Christian texts ; 1 Enoch in the EOTC: reception and transmission of scriptures ; 1 Enoch in the EOTC: literary and cultural appropriation.
Summary: Since its publication in English translation in 1821, the book of Enoch has enjoyed immense popularity in Western culture as a variety of religious groups, interested historians, and academics have sought to illuminate the Jewish context of Christian beginnings two thousand years ago. Taking the quotation of 1 Enoch in Jude 14 as its point of departure, the present study explores the significance of Enochic tradition within the context of Christian tradition in the Horn of Africa, where it continues to play a vital role in shaping the diverse yet interrelated self-understanding of Orthodox, Catholic, and Protestant churches. As discussions on the importance of 1 Enoch from antiquity to the present take on new dimensions among increasingly global and diverse voices, 1 Enoch as Christian Scripture offers a rare orientation into a rich culture in which the reception of the book is "at home" as a living tradition more than anywhere else in the world today. The present work argues that serious attention to 1 Enoch holds forth an opportunity for church traditions in Ethiopia-and, indeed, around the world-to embrace some of their indigenous roots and has the capacity to breathe life into time-worn expressions of faith. https://www.amazon.com/Enoch-Christian-Scripture-Reception-Appropriation/dp/1532691157/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=9781532691157&qid=1599705687&s=books&sr=1-1
