The family of God on the earth: Enoch and Noah
In chapter 5 we have the
family of God upon the earth, subject to death, but
depositary of the counsels and of the testimony of God.
Here we may remark Enoch, who has his portion in heaven,
and who bears witness to the world of the coming of Jesus
in judgment, but is himself taken up there before it; and
Noah, on the other hand, warned for himself, preaching
righteousness and judgment, and passing through the
judgments to begin a new worldfigures of the church
and the Jews in connection with Christ's coming.
