Three Hundred Sixty and Five

Genesis seems to make Enoch a cosmic figure, with his age of 365 years, equal to the number of days in the solar calendar (also, this suggests that the Jews didn't always have a lunar calendar).

Moses changes the cosmic imagery.  Zion, the temple city, is cosmic, rather than the man Enoch.
