As a Seminary graduate, I find myself constantly researching ancient manuscripts (like the Dead Sea Scrolls) for additional insight into the historical and cultural significance of the Holy Scriptures.
Some of what I’ve discovered over the years is that “The Book of 1 Enoch” is the second-most common extra-biblical Dead Sea Scroll manuscript. The most common being “The Book of Jubilees.”
Interestingly, one of the complete descriptions of the Prophet Enoch comes from the 4th Chapter of “The Book of Jubilees.”
How did I get started on this journey?
Well, over a decade after I graduated Northeastern Seminary in Rochester, NY, I listened to a teaching from one of my favorite contemporary Bible teachers, Dr. Dale Sides (www.lmci.org). He mentioned “The Book of Enoch” in a teaching called “How God Is Able to Save His People.”
After a few days of meditating on that teaching, I began to search for an audiobook version of “The Book of Enoch” so that I could ingest large amounts of its content quickly. Reading was difficult at the time because I was on the road a lot.
To my dismay, I found there was no professionally produced audio version of “The Book of Enoch” available. I then reached out to a Christian audiobook producer and voice talent, Steve Cook, and asked him if he were interested in producing 1 Enoch. He thankfully said “Yes.”
In June of 2016, the semi-dramatized “Book of Enoch Audiobook” was released – this being “I Enoch”, the other two books of Enoch (2 Enoch & 3 Enoch) had no ties to the Dead Sea Scrolls. Within a week, it was #1 in one Amazon category, and in the Top 20 of three others.
Then in April of 2017, another Dead Sea Scroll project – “The Book of Jubilees” was released. Within one month, it also had reached #1 in it’s Amazon category and has been a regular resident of the Top 5 ever since.
Now you can listen to both “The Book of I Enoch and Jubilees” unabridged, and hear these timeless gems with the passion and clarity they deserve.
Steve Cook and I are now pleased to offer both of these most important and complementary ancient texts together in one convenient MP3 download and we are continuing to produce other great audiobooks as well. This will also be available in Kindle and paperback as well.
We hope you will look out for them in the future and spread the word about this ministry. I will also list links to all of my projects on my personal author website www.rb3experience.com so that you can check for the latest projects there as well.
We’ve put a scholarly introduction at the beginning of each book. May God Bless you as you read and/or listen to these great classics – both of which are referred to in the canonized Scriptures of the Old and New Testament.
