Enoch and the Messiah Son of Man: Revisiting the Book of Parables
Edited byGabriele Boccaccini
From The Publisher:
Jason von Ehrenkrook, associate editor, with J. Harold Ellens, Ronald Ruark, and Justin Winger
Distinguished in the field of Enochic studies, Gabriele Boccaccini led the way in June 2005 at the Third Enoch Seminar, entirely devoted to the Book of Parables in light of Second Temple Judaism and Christian origins. The unusual and compelling collection of essays found here reflects the spirit of sharing and dialogue that has made these seminars so popular and intriguing to scholars throughout the world.
This third collection of essays from these historic meetings contains the observations and contemplations of forty-four scholars, includes a helpful introduction by Boccaccini detailing the history of the movement, and ends with likely prospects for future research and an extensive bibliography compiled by associate editor Jason von Ehrenkrook for further study.
Enoch and the Messiah Son of Man will be a significant contribution for the understanding and discussion of ancient Judaism.
