Course Description:
“Enoch walked intently with God, and then he disappeared—because God took him away” (Gen 5:24)! Wow, what a statement! The book known as 1 Enoch is the Second Temple Jewish writing that tells the story of where Enoch went and what he was shown when God took him.

Jude, the brother of Yeshua (Jesus) quotes 1 Enoch 1:9 in Jude verses 14–15, “It was about these that Enoch, in the seventh generation from Adam, prophesied: ‘Look! The Lord comes with tens of thousands of his holy ones to execute judgment on all and to convict all the ungodly concerning all the ungodly acts that they have done in an ungodly way, and concerning all the harsh things ungodly sinners have said against him”.

Ephraim Isaac rightly states that 1 Enoch is as dependent upon the OT (Torah, Prophets, and Writings) as it is influential upon the NT (New Covenant Scriptures)! Come discover what we should know about 1 Enoch and why. The course will begin with a mini introduction to Jewish Pseudepigraphal Apocalyptic Literature!

This MSI LIVE ONLINE course meets LIVE via Zoom on two consecutive Wednesdays, Dec 08 & 15, but the LIVE ONLINE sessions for this course will be recorded and available to revisit whenever you desire. The videos will be uploaded as soon as possible after the LIVE ONLINE sessions in the Course Contents. We encourage you to follow the schedule closely and plan ahead to be with us for these LIVE courses so you can get the most out of lifelong learning with MSI. While not ideal, you may also register for this course if you cannot attend the live sessions and engage the videos at your own pace.
