Chapter Summary

The Enochic Book of Parables is an account of Enoch's journeys through these other worlds. This chapter presents the discussion that touches on the following issues: (1) how does the seer describe these other worlds; (2) how are these other worlds related, positively or negatively, to the world of the author and his audience; that is, how do they reflect the circumstances and problems of the author's world; and, (3) how do these worlds transform and ameliorate these circumstances and problems. According to the author, the present time and world are marked by violence, oppression, and chaos. The coming judgment will change this. In the other worlds, order rules rather than chaos, where God's authority is honoured and God's will is done, and where the mechanisms of judgment are in place or are being prepared to reverse the ills of this world and the present time.
