Are the two witnesses Elijah and Enoch?

“Are the two witnesses in Revelation 10 Elijah and Enoch? I ask that because they were both taken to heaven without dying.”

The witnesses you refer to in Revelation are not named. Anything we might say would be speculation. Some scholars believe they are Moses and Elijah because they have power to turn water into blood, to strike the earth with plagues and to deal with their enemies by fire.

Again, we really can’t know, but my opinion is that you are correct. I think they are likely the two men that didn't die. 

I wish I could give you a clear answer, but the Bible simply doesn’t say. 

Thanks for your question,

Here at Wisdom International, we believe that the Bible is God's Word. Therefore, it carries the authority of God himself and is the final authority by which we order our lives. 

Sometimes the Bible can be confusing and difficult to understand. But God desires to be known. Scripture answers the big questions of life and should seek to know and understand what it says.
