This little known book is truly an amazing gem. Its message is very consistent with the Book of Enoch, with the New Testament and Mshikhani teaching. The visions experienced by this beloved Saint are reminiscent of Messiah's parable of Lazarus and the Rich Man as recorded in the Gospel of Luke.

There was a certain rich man, who was clothed in fine linen robe, and passed every day in splendid luxury. And there was a certain poor man, whose name was Lazarus; and he was laid at the gate of the rich man, suffering with ulcers. And he desired to fill his belly with the fragments that fell from the rich man's table: and the dogs also came and licked the man's ulcers. And so it was, that the poor man died; and angels transported him to Abraham's bosom. The rich man also died, and was buried. And being tormented in hell, he raised his eyes from afar off, and saw Abraham, and Lazarus in his bosom. And he called with a loud voice, and said: Abraham, my father, have pity on me; and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and moisten my tongue; for, behold, I am tormented in this flame. And Abraham said to him: My son, remember, that you received your good things during your lifetime, and Lazarus his evil things: and now, behold he is here at rest, and you are receiving stripes. And with all these, there is a great barrier between us and you; so that they who would pass from here to you, cannot; neither can they pass from there to us. He said to him: I beg of you, therefore, my father, that you would send him to my father's house; for I have five brothers; that he may go and protest to them; lest they also come to this place of torment. Abraham said to him: They have Moses and the prophets, let them hear them. But he said to him: No, my father Abraham: but if one shall go to them from the dead, they will repent. Abraham said to him: If they do not listen to Moses and the prophets, they will not believe, though one should rise from the dead. (Luke 16:19-31, Peshitta)

In the Book of Enoch, Enoch is escorted by angels through the different levels of heaven as he is educated on the mysteries of the spirit world. We are told in the ancient writings how the soul encounters disturbing punishments from time to time during that soul's existence in Sheol and sometimes peaceful situations as it continues to receive its stripes.
