The Nephilim Pt. 1: The Sons of God and The Nephilim

Genesis 6 describes an incident between mankind and celestial beings that we have called the first incursion. The Bible records that the Sons of God had children with the daughters of man; it then goes on to explain that the Nephilim were on the earth in those days and after. So, that then begs the question, who are the Nephilim? Are the Nephilim the offspring of women and angels? Join Reverend Kenny Yates as he searches through Scripture for answers to these questions and more about the mysterious giants of old in his video, The Nephilim Pt. 1: The Sons of God and The Nephilim.

The Sons of God and The Nephilim

The Nephilim (giants) didn’t come from the Sons of God (angels) and women because they were on the earth before the flood and long after the flood.

1 When man began to multiply on the face of the land and daughters were born to them, the sons of God saw that the daughters of man were attractive. And they took as their wives any they chose. Then the Lord said, “My Spirit shall not abide in man forever, for he is flesh: his days shall be 120 years.” The Nephilim were on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of man and they bore children to them. These were the mighty men who were of old, the men of renown.

Genesis 6:1-4

32 So they brought to the people of Israel a bad report of the land that they had spied out, saying, “The land, through which we have gone to spy it out, is a land that devours its inhabitants, and all the people that we saw in it are of great height. 33 And there we saw the Nephilim (the sons of Anak, who come from the Nephilim), and we seemed to ourselves like grasshoppers, and so we seemed to them.”

Numbers 13:32-33
