The book of enoch is refered to many times in the Bible. The term Son of Man is taken from Enoch and the story from Genesis about the Nephilim is also from Enoch. However, the book known as Book of Enoch is not as old as one might think, but the wisdom therein is much older and belongs to the oral tradition of the Hebrews dating back to preflood Adam and Eve. According to this tradition, Adam was given a book often refered to as the Spark of Heaven. This book contained all anyone would desire to know about God and his Plan. However, Satan summoned 1/3rd of the angels in heaven and waged war against God because of this, since God had shared the divine wisdom with Man and not the angels. Satan & co seized the book, put chains on it and threw it at the bottom of the ocean. However when God learned about the treason of Satan he threw him down from heaven and his angels with him, and he ordered Leviathan the great sea serpent to retrieve the Spark of Heaven from the bottom of the sea, and so he did. The book was then given to Enoch the seventh son and the great grandfather of Noah. Tradition wants it that Enoch was the first person to ever write, since he was given the alphabet in order to read the book he had been given by God. According to the Enochian tradition parts of the Book of Enoch is based on the Spark of Heaven, but the Spark of Heaven is now lost.
The Watchers that appear in Enochian litterature are the sons of God mentioned in Genesis 6 who mated with the daughters of Man so they gave birth to giants. In Enoch this story is much more vivid, and it is explained how these watchers manipulated animals and brought forth giants and monsters. Allthough there is nothing in the fossil records that can prove or disprove the occurance of giants, gigantism is a well known phenomena that often occurs when animals of different branches of a species mix. One example is the "liger", a mix between lion and tiger. It's gigantic. And this is exactly what the Bible and Enoch tells us about. Gigantism. Apparently the Flood destroyed all these giants and monsters.
‘All who lived in the temple lost their vision,
and the hearts of all of them godlessly forsook Wisdom,
and the house of the kingdom was burned and the whole chosen people was scattered (1 Enoch 93).
This history knows nothing of the Deuteronomists’ story of the Exodus and their hero Moses, but it does emphasise Enoch, and says that Jerusalem was destroyed after the people in the temple had forsaken Wisdom.
