I would say that Jesus was neither denying nor contradicting the Biblical accounts of Enoch and Elijah, nor saying anything with reference to the intermediate state of humans after death. Instead, He was indicating that no human could speak to other humans from first-hand knowledge about heaven through having gone there and then returning to earth. Only He could do so through having left heaven to be born as a human on earth.
