The Nephilim Pt. 2: The Book of Enoch

The Nephilim is one of the most debated topics in the Church as well as outside the Church in the secular world. This topic is often accompanied by the Book of Enoch. More times than not, the Book of Enoch is used to explain the origin of the Nephilim, but is the Book of Enoch trustworthy? Does the Book of Enoch contradict the Bible, or was the Book of Enoch taken out of the Bible? Join Reverend Kenny Yates as he searches through Scripture to find answers to these questions and more in his video, The Nephilim Pt. 2: The Book of Enoch.

The Nephilim

The Biblical Account of the Nephilim

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

The Biblical account of the Nephilim is a much different picture than that of the pseudepigraphical Book of Enoch. The Biblical account of the Nephilim is that of fear and terror, whereas the Book of Enoch describes them as great, mighty men, men of renown.

30 But Caleb quieted the people before Moses and said, “Let us go up at once and occupy it, for we are well able to overcome it.” 31 Then the men who had gone up with him said, “We are not able to go up against the people, for they are stronger than we are.” 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 13:30-33
