Ep53-Book of Moses Pt2- Latter-day Enoch

• May 5th, 2021

On this Episode of the Gnostic Deluge we finish up the Book of Moses.  The focus is on Enoch and his dream visions and preaching.  Enoch is only briefly mentioned in the Bible (only 5 verses), so Joseph Smith's inspired bible translation vastly expands the story.  We compare some of the similarities found in other Pseudepigraphic texts like The book of Enoch, Jasher, and Book of the Giants.  Also, we get a larger view on the Mormon plan of Salvation.  Enjoy!
