The Biblical Timeline shows that Enoch’s existence is from 3384 BC to 3019 BC. Please take note that 3019 BC is not the death date of Enoch, but rather the last day / year he was seen on earth.

Enoch, Father of Methuselah

Enoch begat Methuselah when he was sixty-five years of age (Genesis 5:21 KJV). Enoch lived for another three hundred years after he begat Methuselah, and he had other sons and daughters (Genesis 5:22 KJV).

Enoch does not die

It was also mentioned in Genesis 5:22 that Enoch walked with God after he begat Methuselah. Three hundred years later the Bible says that Enoch skipped death. His body was never to be found after three hundred and sixty years of existence because God was pleased with his life (Hebrews 11:5 KJV).

Further, the book of Jude also mentions that Enoch prophesied the coming of the Lord with His ten thousand saints (Jude 1:14 KJV).

  1. Thank you A lot of things I queation on You tube This really straighten s me out,

    1. This chart is a young Earth concept which is assanine! I have seen with my own eyes proof that the Earth is billions of years old. Among the proofs that don’t depend on radioactive carbon dating are: 1Tree rings date wooden objects back 10,000 years. if the Bible says (it doesn’t) that the Earth is 6,000 years old then it cannot be 10,000 years old. 2. Ice cores date things such as volcano eruptions back 80,000 years. 3. I have dived near Belize in a place called the Blue Hole. There at 110 feet you can swim around huge stalactites that took hundreds of thousands of years to form. But wait, stalactites can only form in the air where water evaporates and leaves the stone material. So, this cavern had to have been above water level when they were formed. Science tells us that a giant meteorite, in the distant past, hit the earth and formed the Caribbean Sea as it sunk this cavern below the water. That event could have been the first end that Enoch describes.

      1. No one said the Earth was not billions of years old time in heaven is much different than time on Earth. If you read the book of inac there are I think 8 weeks in total to the existence of the Earth some of them are billions of human years long.

        1. Read the Book of Enoch

  2. There is a book of the bible that has been omitted..The Book of Enoch.. from Enochs words, he describes what happened when he “walked with god” check it out 🙂

    1. Enoch was raptured off of the Earth before it’s first destruction. He was taught all things in heaven but when the earth was remade eons later, he was sent back to the Earth where he married, had children and eventually died. This was done so that Satan could not thwart God’s plan to bring a Messiah in the linage of Adam. The original creation is in Genesis 2 and the remake is in Genesis 1. See the book of Enoch. It explains Genesis. Also see my E-novel “Enoch’s Vision” on Kindel and Nook
