[2:16] 1 Enoch, Martin McNamara writes


“In the Book of Jubilees 4:19 mention is made of Enoch’s dream visions of the course of history, by which the second vision of this section may be intended. No fragment of the first vision (83-84) has been found in Qumran. The second vision seems to have been composed in Maccabean times, and possibly before Jonathan’s assumption of the high priesthood in 153 B.C. The author seems to have belonged to the Hasidic movement.”
