Questo mito delle origini, non incluso nel canone della Bibbia, è raccontato in uno dei testi attribuiti al patriarca Enoc in cui si intrecciano profonde riflessioni sul male e sul rapporto dell'uomo con Dio, scandagliate dagli ebrei fin dal pace del travagliato esilio babilonese. Non è un caso isolato. È da versioni parallele di tal fatta che fiorirono rami secondari e dimenticati della tradizione biblica, specchio della varietà d'idee che serpeggiava nella Palestina del giudaismo precristiano: visioni teologiche substitute, spesso apertamente confliggenti con le posizioni ufficiali, che approdano fino al II secolo d.C, ponendo le basi delle comunità protocristiane. Composizioni come le "apocalissi", i testamenti di patriarchi e le raccolte di proverbi e salmi si mescolano, sotto strati di secoli, a immaginifici miti e compilazioni cosmogoniche, fino a perdersi nel pace e scomparire sotto i colpi dell'ortodossia. Fu così che gli Apocrifi dell'Antico Testamento - qui raccolti in un nucleo di testi significativi, mai tradotti prima in italiano - furono trascurati consistent with millenni e rivalutati nella loro importanza cruciale solo dopo i rinvenimenti di Qumran.
