Un-Writing the Bible: Enoch's Son of Man and Jesus

Part 3:

The Son of Man in the book of Enoch appears to be more than just a Jewish Messiah but more like a pre-existent spirit being who reigns on his "throne of glory" in heaven. That then brings us to chapter 45 where "the Elect One" sits on a throne of glory that is apparently on the earth:

3In that day shall the Elect One sit upon a throne of glory; and shall choose their conditions and countless habitations, while their spirits within them shall be strengthened, when they behold my Elect One, for those who have fled for protection to my holy and glorious name.
4In that day I will cause my Elect One to dwell in the midst of them; will change the face of heaven; will bless it, and illuminate it for ever.

Then, in chapter 46 the Elect One is shown to be "The Son of Man":

1There I beheld the Ancient of days, whose head was like white wool, and with him another, whose countenance resembled that of man. His countenance was full of grace, like that of one of the holy angels. Then I inquired of one of the angels, who went with me, and who showed me every secret thing, concerning this Son of man; who he was; whence he was and why he accompanied the Ancient of days.

2He answered and said to me, This is the Son of man, to whom righteousness belongs; with whom righteousness has dwelt; and who will reveal all the treasures of that which is concealed: for the Lord of spirits has chosen him; and his portion has surpassed all before the Lord of spirits in everlasting uprightness.

I notice that this son of man only resembles a man, does that mean that he is not really a man but only appears to be a man like in the doctrine of the Docetists about Jesus?

The Son of Man is also going to reveal things that were concealed, which is similar to what Jesus said:

Luk 12:2 For there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; neither hid, that shall not be known.

Most of the time Jesus calls himself "the Son of Man" but sometimes he speaks of the son of man in the third person:

Luk 17:30 Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.

Anyway, I notice that the Son of Man in the book of Enoch is also "full of grace" just like Jesus is said to be.

Joh 1:14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

John 1 has convinced many Christians that Jesus was also pre-existent, just like the Son of Man in the book of Enoch.
Also, many of Jesus' words about the Son of Man sound as if he is actually a heavenly deity with supernatural powers and heavenly authority, just as the Son of Man in the book of Enoch - Matt. 9:6; 12:8; 12:32; 13:41; 25:31, just to mention a few.

Un-Writing the Bible: Enoch's Son of Man and Jesus

Part 2:

The Book of Enoch:

The elect shall possess light, joy, and peace; and they shall inherit the earth. (6:9)

The words of Jesus:

Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth. (Matt. 5:5)

From where I left off in the Book of Enoch in part 1, it goes on to describe the fallen angels when there really are no fallen angels in the Old Testament. In Genesis, before the flood, "the sons of God" represent the followers and/or descendants of Seth and the "daughters of men" represent the descendants of Cain. The actual sin committed was marrying outside of the faith, which was still condemned under the law of Moses and even in the New Testament.

When some Christian read about the "giants in the earth" from this intermarriage they see actual giants and that Christian idea may, in fact, come from the book of Enoch, which describes the fallen ones as being 300 cubits tall.

The giants, however, are really just tyrants (the KJV mistranslates the word). The actual tyrants are known to historians as priest/kings - they were the men in ancient times who founded kingdoms and claimed territory. They filled both the offices of king and priest in order to claim territory as being given to them by their god - the same way Abraham's descendants claimed Canaan - God gave it to Abraham and his descendants. That's where the Israelites get the authority to claim it and commit genocide over it in the OT.

Angels are supposed to be spirit beings - they could not have sex with humans. Even Jesus says that angels are sexless when he said that they "neither marry nor are they given in marriage". So, where does this idea of fallen angels come from in the new testament writings, i.e., demons and such. And, if they are bound in chains in darkness, how is it they are running around tempting people to sin? See 2 Pet. 2:4 and Jude 1:6 which comes straight out of the book of Enoch in the chapters following where I left off in part 1. So, we see that both 2 Peter and Jude quote things from 1Enoch as if it is sacred scripture.
