VanderKam expresses reservation as to whether the entire collection of writings indicated by Nickelsburg be considered components of a testament. 11 I concur with the hesitation of Collins and VanderKam in assigning the testamentary form to the Book of the Watchers and favor the notion that the Book of the Watchers circulated as an independent entity prior to its inclusion in a collection.
