The understanding of the Jewish literary environment of Early Christianity is important for Biblical research. One of the major textual sources of that environment is the so-called Enochic literature -a number of documents which were composed from the second century B.C. to the second century A.D. in Jewish and Christian communities. These texts are mainly dedicated to apocalyptic descriptions of the heavenly journeys of Enoch ben Jared, a well known Biblical character. The language and ideas of the Enochic literature had a great influence on the New Testament and on early Christology.
