Chapter Summary

This index presents a list of terms and concepts that occur in the book Challenges to Conventional Opinions on Qumran and Enoch Issues. The book addresses two distinct issues. The first is the assumption that the Watchers' narrative, the primary and essential element of the book, conveys hidden doctrines, such as the source of evil, the problem of theodicy, and deviation from the cosmic order as the core of the Watcher's misdoing. Two scholars perceive its message as a concealed criticism of priests, one for illegitimate intermarriages and the other for severe theological divergences among the priests, founded on disputes about the primeval source and character of evil. The second issue relates to the allegation that the Book of Enoch was the source of a doctrine that rejected the Mosaic Torah and founded a group of different characters that replaced it with an Enochian doctrine.

Keywords: Enochian doctrine; Mosaic Torah; Qumran issues
