As we continue to tour the hall, we come to our next hero, Enoch.
5 By faith Enoch was taken up so that he should not see death, and he was not found, because God had taken him. Now before he was taken he was commended as having pleased God. 6 And without faith it is impossible to please him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him. (Hebrews 11:5-6; ESV)
We would expect to read a lot of information about this person who did not see death. So we turn back to the Old Testament to read about Enoch. Yet all that we find out about him is from the genealogical record. Notice that chapter 5 places emphasis on the fact that each person died. But then we come across the record for Enoch.
