Some scholars have argued that the Book of Enoch reflects a form of Judaism
that was not Torah based. They argue this because they claim that the Book
of Enoch seems to neglect the Torah. Quite to the contrary Enoch states:
108:1 Another book which Enoch wrote for his son Methuselah
and for those who will come after him,
and observe the Torah in the last days.
Throughout Charles' translation of Ethiopic Enoch the term "lawlessness"
The Greek word that appears in the Greek text of 1Enoch for lawlessness is
ANOMOS is a Greek word made up of the Greek prefix "A-" (meaning "there is
not" or "without") added to the Greek word for "Torah" "NOMOS". Thus
ANOMOS means "Torah-lessness" as I have rendered the Greek ANOMOS and its
equivelant Ethiopic throughout this translation. A major theme of 1Enoch
is the spread of Torah-lessness in the last days and the Torah observant
ones of the last days.
