Abstract 1 Enoch (1 En.) has become a major site of discussion in contemporary biblical scholarship. Its evident use by the Qumran community, citation in Jude, and canonical status in the Ethiopian Church all illustrate its significance in Second Temple Judaism despite its non-canonical status in rabbinical Judaism and orthodox Christianity. This article compares the ‘son of man’ figure from Daniel 7 and the eschatological ‘Adam’ or ‘white bull’ from the Animal Apocalypse (1 En. 90) in an attempt to determine whether direct literary dependence between these two contemporary texts can be posited in either direction.
