If those Enoch verses inspired Herod to go to the springs for healing then it would suggest that the Parables of Enoch were written before his reign.

I think this is most unlikely. Herod could find out about healing springs from other sources of information.

I have not done any comparisons except for the two standard Matthew ones and those in this thread regarding other NT ones. I am not aware of a coming heavenly figure at the end of time in the DSS. This is most likely because I have not studied the DSS.

A couple of DSS sources that appears to be talking about a heavenly angel: 4Q521 A Messianic Apocalypse. IIQ13 Heavenly Prince Melchizedek.

The prophecies are strikingly similar to Jesus and his account of the Son of Man.
