1 Enoch 69:27


25 And this oath is mighty over them And through it ⌈they are preserved and⌉ their paths are preserved, And their course is not destroyed. Close of the Third Parable. 26 And there was great joy amongst them, And they blessed and glorified and extolled Because the name of that Son of Man had been revealed unto them. 27 And he sat on the throne of his glory, And the sum of judgement was given unto the Son of Man, And he caused the sinners to pass away and be destroyed from off the face of the earth, And those who have led the world astray. 28 With chains shall they be bound, And in their assemblage-place of destruction shall they be imprisoned, And all their works vanish from the face of the earth. 29 And from henceforth there shall be nothing corruptible; For that Son of Man has appeared, And has seated himself on the throne of his glory, And all evil shall pass away before his face, And the word of that Son of Man shall go forth And be strong before the Lord of Spirits. This is the Third Parable of Enoch.

John 5:22

New Testament

19 For the Father loves the Son and shows him everything he does, and will show him greater deeds than these, so that you will be amazed. 20 For just as the Father raises the dead and gives them life, so also the Son gives life to whomever he wishes. 21 Furthermore, the Father does not judge anyone, but has assigned all judgment to the Son, 22 so that all people will honor the Son just as they honor the Father. The one who does not honor the Son does not honor the Father who sent him. 23 “I tell you the solemn truth, the one who hears my message and believes the one who sent me has eternal life and will not be condemned, but has crossed over from death to life. 24 I tell you the solemn truth, a time is coming—and is now here—when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God, and those who hear will live.

 Notes and References

"... Jude, the brother of James and of Jesus, quotes in his epistle from both the Assumption of Moses and the Book of Enoch. If Jude had read these books and quoted from them, it would seem altogether likely that Jesus had read them and it is possible that he quoted from them too. The words 'when the Son of Man shall sit on the throne of his glory' may have been taken directly by Jesus from the Book of Enoch (62:3). In Enoch 69:27 we read, 'The sum of judgment was committed unto him, the Son of Man.' Jesus seems to be appropriating this phraseology when he says, 'He hath committed all judgment unto the Son .... because he is the Son of Man' (John 5:22, 27). The leading English authority upon this apocalyptical literature, R. H. Charles, thinks that phrases, clauses, or thoughts derived from the Book of Enoch are to be found not only in the Epistle of Jude and the Apocalypse of John, but also in the Gospels according to John and Matthew and Luke, and in the Book of Acts, and in the Epistles of Paul to the Romans and to the Ephesians, and in the Epistle to the Hebrews."
