Chapter Summary

As is well known, some Christian authors at least were familiar with certain themes and motifs from the Enochic tradition and probably even from Enochic literature itself and this from very early on. There are not only the allusions and citations in Clement of Alexandria or Origen, but also some New Testament authors prove to have had access to this literature or the traditions reflected in it. The most famous instance is of course the explicit reference to 1 Enoch (1:9) in Jude 14-15. In the margins of NA, one finds several other possible parallels and allusions. This chapter proposes to have a new look at a passage in the Gospel of Matthew that does not figure in this list, but that has been linked to 1 Enoch by a few commentators and in a couple of specific studies.
