  • The Ethiopic Book of Enoch (a.k.a. 1 Enoch), written between the third century ʙ.ᴄ. and the first century ᴀ.ᴅ. In the New Testament, Jude 1:14–15 directly quotes 1 Enoch 1:9, and there are over 100 other allusions to 1 Enoch in the New Testament, indicating that first-century Christians almost certainly considered it scripture.
  • The Slavonic Book of the Secrets of Enoch (a.k.a. 2 Enoch), probably written in the first century ᴀ.ᴅ. (around the time of Christ), is a shorter work than 1 Enoch that has numerous textual connections to the Book of Moses (JST Genesis) material on Enoch the prophet.
