Enoch and the Messiah Son of Man: Revisiting the Book of Parables (2007) is a volume edited by Gabriele Boccaccini.

Abstract

The proceedings of the Third Enoch Seminar (Camaldoli 2005) are entirely devoted to the Book of Parables in light of Second Temple Judaism and Christian origins. This third collection of essays contains the observations and contemplations of forty-four scholars, opening with an essay by George W.E. Nickelsburg on the text of the Parables and ending with likely prospects for future research by Paolo Sacchi. In spite of the presence of different interpretations, the overwhelming conclusion of the contributors is that the Parables of Enoch is a Second Temple Jewish text, which directly influenced the origins of the Jesus movement. The volume includes an introduction by Gabriele Boccaccini detailing the history of the Enoch Seminar, and extensive bibliography compiled by associate editor Jason von Ehrenkrook for further study.

"Distinguished in the field of Enochic studies, Gabriele Boccaccini led the way in June 2005 at the Third Enoch Seminar, entirely devoted to the Book of Parables in light of Second Temple Judaism and Christian origins. The unusual and compelling collection of essays found here reflects the spirit of sharing and dialogue that has made these seminars so popular and intriguing throughout the theological world. This fifth collection of essays from these historic meetings contains the observations and contemplations of forty-four scholars and includes a helpful introduction by the editor detailing the history of the movement, and two important conclusions a likely prospects for future research and an extensive bibliography from associate editor Jason von Ehrenkrook for further study. Enoch and the Messiah Son of Man will be a significant contribution for the understanding and discussion of ancient Judaism."--Publisher description.
