Enoch is the son of Jared, the great-great-great-great grandson of Adam, and the father of Methuselah. Encoh did not taste death. He lived 365 years and then ascended into Heaven, since it is written "for God took him." (Gen. 5:24). The Ethiopian Orthodox Church includes the Book of Enoch in their canons which describes Enochs ascent into heaven and is not accepted in the Eastern Orthodox Canons for being apocryphal.
