The Slavonic Enoch in its present form was written somewhere about the beginning of the Christian era. Its author or final editor was a Hellenistic Jew, and the place of its composition was Egypt. Written at such a date, and in Egypt, it was not to be expected that it exercised a direct influence on the writers of the New Testament. On the other hand, it occasionally exhibits striking parallelisms in diction and thought, and some of the dark passages of the latter are all but inexplicable without its aid. Although the very knowledge that such a book ever existed was lost for probably twelve hundred years, it nevertheless was much used both by Christian and heretic in the early centuries. Thus, citations appear from it, though without acknowledgement, in the Book of Adam and Eve, the Apocalypses of Moses and Paul (400-500 A. d.), the Sibylline Oracles, the Ascension of Isaiah and the Epistle of Barnabas (70-90 a.d.). It is quoted by name in the Apocalyptic portions of the Testaments of Levi, Daniel, and Naphtali (circ. 1 a.d.) 1 . It was referred to by Origen and probably by Clement of Alexandria, and used by Irenaeus, and a few phrases in the New Testament may be derived from it.
