When some people hear the name of Enoch from the Bible, they often wonder
what really happened to this Old Testament prophet.
They know the Bible says "Enoch walked with God," and that "Enoch was translated that he should not see death."
But what do these puzzling verses really mean?
Did Enoch, a champion of God from the Book of Genesis somehow cheat death and
get miraculously transported to heaven? Or is there a much simpler answer, one
that's actually revealed in the Bible?
After all, it is "appointed unto men once to die" (Hebrews 9:27), "as in Adam all die" (1 Corinthians 15:22), and Jesus Himself said no one has gone to heaven except Himself (John 3:13).
"Some think what happened to Enoch is a huge mystery that we won't be able to solve until Jesus returns, but you can find out the truth of Scripture right now if you just crack open your own Bible and see the words on its pages," says WND Executive News Editor Joe Kovacs, author of the best-selling book, "Shocked by the Bible: The Most Astonishing Facts You've Never Been Told."
