Enoch in the Bible

Who was Enoch in the Bible? There are at least four different men mentioned as Enoch throughout the Bible book of Genesis. However, one specific Enoch, mentioned in Genesis 5:18, that the Bible speaks most about.

This Enoch was the descendant of Adam. The book of Hebrews states that “By faith Enoch was taken from this life, so that he did not experience death: ‘He could not be found, because God had taken him away.’ For before he was taken, he was commended as one who pleased God.” Enoch was one of only two people in the Bible who were said to have been chosen to escape death by God, the other being Elijah. What an incredible life he must have lived serving God! Learn more about Enoch in the Bible from the collection of scripture quotes below!
