2 Enoch 35 unveils a tradition according to which the Enochic writings will be eventually handled by the books' guardians to a group designated as the Men of Faith. The reference to the group as the last link in the chain of transmission of the Enochic scriptures recalls the terminology attested in the later «Enochic» material appended to some manuscripts of Sefer Hekhalot and known as Chapter 48D of 3 Enoch. In this account the revelation which is initially given by Enoch-Metatron to Moses passes through several transmissions into the hands of people named the Men of Faith. Scholars have previously suggested that this designation in the Hekhalot passage appears to function as a quasi-technical term for the mystics or their mythic ancestors. In this context the designation reflected in 2 Enoch may hold the key to the enigma of the Enochic group(s) standing behind the early Jewish mystical speculations.
