Sons of God and Nephilim the Mystery!

Prophecy and the Days of Noah covers “one of the weirdest passages in the bible and will be highlighted in Part II as we move forward in Gen 6. It is here that what we know, we may not and what we do not know is apparent.” In part two we cover Genesis chapter six from a 'supernatural world view.' We cover the Nephilim, excerpts from Book of Enoch, the implication for society today. Especially as Mike Heiser remarks of this passage, “it is admittedly weird." Something occurred in this event that had not happened before. It is something that we have a hard time understanding. Experts cannot absolutely prove their thesis, but they can take the original Hebrew, Greek, and Aramaic texts and get the meaning of what they said and apply it to the passages in Genesis.

“Well the whole Nephilim passage in genesis 6: 1-4 is admittedly weird. It’s one of those go to weird passages in the Bible that seems to come up, especially among people who would resist or not have a supernatural worldview. Mike Heiser

Moreover, as with many passages there are disagreements here. We have cover Keil and Delistch view of this passage and now compare parts of that with the view which many today feel is the proper one. We know there were Nephilim before the flood, and somehow ancestors of the Nephilim were in the land when Israel entered and they fought and destroyed these Giants who lived there.

The strange events recorded in Genesis 6 were understood by the ancient rabbinical sources, as well as the Septuagint translators, as referring to fallen angels procreating weird hybrid offspring with human women--known as the "Nephilim."

Admittedly, however, there is a grave difficulty in the idea of angel/human sexual unions, not only the question of whether such a thing is possible, but even more in the theologically paradoxical and grotesque nature of the progeny of such unions. The Genesis Record, 1976, Henry Morris

If we believe that there are intelligent beings outside our own created world; our own material world, why would we limit a supernatural entity from [mating with woman]? What basis would you have to limit that property? If you’re going to allow for that, then this idea of being able to mingle with human flesh on some level or way, proceeds from those assumptions.” Mike Heiser, Nephilim

Gen 6:1-13
And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, Gen 6:1
That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose. Gen 6:2
1Pe 3:20
20 Which sometime were disobedient, when once the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved by water
