The ancient Israelite work known as 1 Enoch is generally regarded as an Old Testament text for the Ethiopian and Eritrean Orthodox Churches.1 Enoch has a continuous and honorable tradition of use among Ethiopian Christians since the fifth or sixth centuries CE when it was first translated into Ge‘ez from Greek. This essay is aimed at demonstrating that the Book of the Watchers (1 Enoch 1-36) has an important theological contribution to make in our understanding of evil and the way in which God has dealt and will deal with it.
