Sources for the "Last Judgment"

Continuing with Akenson I read about a number of apocryphal books popular among Jews at the time of Jesus. In particular Enoch was revered by many early Christians and provided an even better source of his Parable of the Last Judgment (Matthew 25) than does Daniel 12.

That bit went into my History of the Church at the section called "The Spiritual Milieu at the Birth of the Church"
