First of all, let me just add some intersting anecdotes:
Enoch (or Chanoch - as it pronounce in Hebrew - חנוך ) is one of the most interesting and mind blowing books of the so called "Outer Books" (free translation) of the Torah. it has two volumes, and basicly describes the adventures of Enoch, the great grandfather of Noah, as he gets "free tour" to the heavens above. While "touring" ,accompanied by Supreme angels, Enoch is aquiring knowledge of basicly everything: the days of the year (365 & a quarter!!!) , Seasons, day & night, the sun & the moon cycles, even names of the Planets.
the "highlight" of this tour is ofcourse meeting with the Almighty himself.
now, there is nothing wrong with the story so far, the "problem" is the description of the location where that part of the story take place.
utopian and wonderfull as it might be, it is still very physical. it describes stones and pathway made of glass, the chair of the Almighty, flames, snow and ice... in one point, while describing his journey through the 7 skies, Enoch describes a level full of angels that are learning about the ways of the stars! the description is amazing!
another 2 mind blowing anecdotes:
It is said that Noah (great grandson of Enoch) was born with - White as snow and at the same time red- skin, his hair was "wool like" & white, and his eyes where bright and lighted the entire room. so far sounds like an Albino, right?
however the thing is that while at the hands of his midwife - Noah speaks like a child - not a baby! that freaked out his father Lamech who went to see Enoch and told him about the new born baby and describe him as: "Different of our kind..." (again, free translation by me from hebrew...)
Enoch calm down Lamech, and tells him that Noah and his sons will be the surviviors of the great catastrophe that is coming... by the way, the name : Noah - comes from the word "Console" - as he "will console the earth..."
Noah had a younger brother named Nir. Nir became the high priest of the people after the death of Metuselach. Nir had a wife & she was a barren woman.
At one sunny day, when she was very old, she became pregnant! she managed to conceal her pregnancy from her husband for many monthes
, anyway, one day she couldn't take it anymore & told her husband about the pregnancy, and she vowed she hadn't slept with anyone! Nir obviously didn't believed her and after a few moments she dropped dead. Nir closed the door of the house and ran to find his brother Noah. the two went back to Nir's place and were shocked to find the body of Nir's wife - but there's more - next to it lay a child (NOT A BABY - A CHILD) who had magnificent skin and his eyes were glowing "Like the angels" and guess what, he could speak! - the name of that child? MALKI-ZEDEK!...
sorry if I had some spelling errors, I'm getting all excited when that subject comes up.
hope i was of service...
