What is the Dream Vision and why should you even care about it?
If you are, or ever have been interested in the Bible, its books, its stories, its lore, its mystery, its history, its symbolism, and just how this book came to be, either as one of the faithful, or take a more scholarly and historical perspective of it all, then the Dream Vision will come as quite a surprise.
To begin with, what is the Dream Vision? Very simply put, the Dream Vision is an allegorical or symbolic retelling of the Biblical story that uses animals to represent people, men to represent angels, with God being represented as the Lord of the sheep, contained within the ancient Book of Enoch.
And that is typically all that is ever said about it by anybody, expert or lay alike. Also, the chances are that you have never even heard of this Dream Vision of Enoch. (Here is a link to the Dream Vision: http://www.sacred-texts.com/bib/boe/boe088.htm and the Book of Enoch: http://www.sacred-texts.com/bib/boe/index.htm)
But, this little retelling of the Biblical story in the Book of Enoch, known as the Dream Vision, that you have never heard of, will change everything you think you know about the Bible and the story it contains.
