Genesis Genesis 5

The Gospel of Enoch

When Enoch had lived 65 years, he fathered Methuselah. Enoch walked with God after he fathered Methuselah 300 years and had other sons and daughters. Thus all the days of Enoch were 365 years. Enoch walked with God, and he was not, for God took him. ~Genesis 5:21-24

  • Enoch may have been pious, but God taking him is not the result of piousness
  • God took Enoch as an act of mercy
  • God is merciful to all those who do not deserve it
  • Just like Enoch received mercy instead of what he deserved, Jesus received judgment instead of what He deserved
