Book of Enoch and the Nephilim
Since it’s English translation in the 1800′s from texts found in Ethiopia in 1768, The Book of Enoch has made quite a stir in academic circles. Enoch has been authenticated as existing and in wide use before the church age (most scholars now date it at 200 BC). Multiple copies were discovered in 1948 in the Dead Sea Scrolls. This of course has caused many to wonder why it is not included in modern Bibles.

Parts of The Book of Enoch tell the story of wicked angels who abducted and mated with human women, resulting in the hybrid race known throughout secular and Biblical history as the Nephilim.

Re: Book of Enoch and the Nephilim
A wicked angel could refer to an Anunnaki. The nephilim would be the hybrid human/anunnaki offspring, thought of as demi-gods, due to their height and lifespan.

Maybe it wasn't available for inclusion at the time of writing?

Re: Book of Enoch and the Nephilim
On the earth there once were giants.”
- Greek poet Homer, 400 B.C.E.


Few Americans alive today are aware that once real giants roamed this land – giant red-haired humans. Most Americans believe that the Native Americans were the first to inhabit the North American continent. Yet there were others – a much more ancient race that walked the hills and valleys, the plains and deserts of the pre-Colombian Americas.

Evidence of giant humans – people seven to twelve feet tall – exists in the fossil records, tools and other artifacts recovered from archaeological digs. Giant skeletal remains have awed and sometimes frightened researchers and explorers as far back as the Sixteenth Century.

Some present day Native American tribes still recite the legends of the giants and how their ancestors fought wars against them when they arrived in North America 15,000 years ago only to find the giants already here. Others, like the Aztecs and Mayans recorded their encounters with a race of giants to the north when they ventured out on expeditions.

The Book of Enoch was third on the list (behind Psalms and Deuternomy) of the most copies found at Qumran. See Below.

The Essenes must have thought the book was very important to have 25 copies (beating out Genesis, Isaiah, Exodus, ect.) of it in the caves.

According to wiki, Josephus wrote that the Essenes pursued:

"piety, celibacy, the absence of personal property and of money, the belief in communality and commitment to a strict observance of the Sabbath.

He further adds that the Essenes ritually immersed in water every morning, ate together after prayer, devoted themselves to charity and benevolence, forbade the expression of anger, studied the books of the elders, preserved secrets, and were very mindful of the names of the angels kept in their sacred writings."

The Essenes (like Jesus) must have really riled the Pharisees and Saducees.

Their customs including the absence of personal property and of money is diametrically opposed to the Roman Catholic Church.
