The present article proposes that Enoch’s status in Watchers and Parables is virtually angelic. It then goes on to compare the knowledge revealed to angelified Enoch with the teachings of the fallen angels in those two Enochic booklets. It becomes clear that the subjects taught by the Watchers are negative aspects of subjects apprehended by Enoch is his angelified state. Thus the status of the revealer determines what can be revealed.
