[2:06] 1 Enoch, Leonhard Rost writes.


“Chapters 72-82 constitute an astronomical treatise probably written around the end of the second century B.C. Chapters 94-105 contain exhortations of Enoch in the style of the farewell discourses of the twelve patriarchs. These discourses date from the first century B.C. The beginning of the book (chapters 1-5) and the conclusion (chapter 108) are among the redactional additions to this complex book. They date from the first century B.C. Nothing in the book makes any allusion to the coming of the Romans in 63 B.C.”
