Why is the Book of Enoch banned from the Bible?

Book of Enoch fell into the OT era, and the Jews didnt consider it scripture, and there is no reason to disagree.


Do we know why they didn't consider it scripture?

Well, having read it, I have no reason why it should be. You dont start out as scripture until we find a reason for you not to be. You need a reason to be considered scripture.

Until you have a reason why it should, I have no reason to give you a reason why it shouldnt.

I really wish Valentinus became pope way back when. It would have been a lot different, and the Catholic church would probably be a lot more credible at this time. Although, looking at the EGC and A.'.A.'. rituals it's quite possible that the church would have been far more easily corrupted...I mean, O.T.O. is in utter disarray from what I understand. Maybe they should have made another compilation of books to complement the Bible that contained the Book of Enoch and some other apocryphal testaments.

Actually iirc a lot of older bibles did include specific apochrypha sections. Does anybody if the Book of Enoch was ever included in that capacity in any notable bibles?

Protestants favor the ones the Jews use because thats the whole point of the OT, it represents God's covenant with the Jews.


It was only definitively rejected by the Jews close to a century after the ministry of Christ and around the same time that they also formally condemned belief in Jesus as the Jewish Messiah as being incompatible with Judaism. The OT canon at the time of Christ was a lot more fluid and less rigid than modern Westerners commonly perceive, and there are plenty of allusions and references to the so-called "Deuterocanonical books" throughout the New Testament (http://scripturecatholic.com/deuterocanon.html). I don't see why anyone should give a **** that post-Jesus Jews rejected certain books from the canon of the Hebrew Bible, especially when one of those books contains one of the most clear prophetic witnesses to Christ's Passion, on par with Isaiah 53.

Anyway, this all proceeds forth from a faulty Protestant understanding of canonicity anyway, so smh.
