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.

Matthew 25:31

New Testament

29 For the one who has will be given more, and he will have more than enough. But the one who does not have, even what he has will be taken from him. 30 And throw that worthless slave into the outer darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’ 31When the Son of Man comes in his glory and all the angels with him, then he will sit on his glorious throne. 32 All the nations will be assembled before him, and he will separate people one from another like a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. 33 He will put the sheep on his right and the goats on his left.

 Notes and References

"... It has long been recognized that 1 Enoch was the most influential of the entire second temple Jewish pseudepigraphic literature. It held a sort of prestige in antiquity that no other text did, as it not only influenced other second temple Jewish literature such as the Book of Jubilees (which was itself an important and influential text), but it also directly influenced many later writings now comprising the Christian New Testament (NT). A few examples of this influence are found throughout the NT: the demonology and judgment scenes (especially Matt. 25:31-46) of the Gospel of Matthew were directly influenced; Mark’s christology conflates the Son of Man tradition with the idea that Jesus is the Son of God; the author of Luke-Acts was influenced also in his conceptions of the Son of Man, as was the author of the Gospel of John ..."
