When man began to multiply on the face of the land and daughters were born to them, 2the sons of God saw that the daughters of man were attractive. And they took as their wives any they chose. 3Then the LORD said, “My Spirit shall not abide in man forever, for he is flesh: his days shall be 120 years.” 4The 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]
Who are the sons of God in Genesis 6, and what were they doing with the beautiful daughters of men?
How can we explain the fact that the earth was filled with a hybrid race of giants called the Nephilim in Noah’s day?
How are the giants connected to the violence on the earth and God’s ultimate judgment by way of the flood?
