Enoch, Levi, and Jubilees on Sexuality marks a first stage in William Loader's research on attitudes toward sexuality in Judaism and Christianity of the Hellenistic Greco-Roman era.

Part 1 of this landmark work deals with the early Enoch literature relevant to the theme, including all of 1 Enoch except the Book of Parables and the final chapter. Part 2 deals largely with the fragmentary Aramaic Levi Document as a whole. Part 3, the longest section, contains the discussion of the Jubilees, including an introductory chapter identifying the importance of the theme within the overall structure of the work.

These studies by Loader aim to interpret the works from within, examining literary form, context, and sequence, as well as tradition and redaction, reflecting the benefit of others' research in this arena.
