The Bible is one of the world's oldest books, with sixty-six different books written by forty different persons over a long period of time. It is divided into two parts: the New Testament and the Old Testament. There are thirty-nine books in the Old Testament and twenty-seven books in the New Testament.
A group of biblical experts compiled these different books together to make the whole Bible we know today. However, some books were left out of the Bible during this compilation, one of which was the book of Enoch.
Enoch was a biblical person who, according to the Bible, walked with God on earth but did not die because God took him to heaven alive. He was thought to be the author of the Book of Enoch, which was acknowledged as a scripture in the early days of Christianity but was later rejected as a scripture when the Bible was compiled.
It was rejected because it was classified as an apocryphal book by many Bible experts, and many of the writings in it were difficult to date and did not correlate to the time of Enoch. They also believe that parts of the stories in it were made up by people who sought to integrate their beliefs, which were frequently based on fiction and myth, into the Bible.
