Heroes and Demigods Before the Flood
January 5, 2016
The Nephilim are known as the “fallen one”, or “giants.” (Numbers 13:1-33). One theory about verse suggests that these giants, known as the “sons of God” were the line of Seth. Another theory states that they were fallen angels.
The Bible says that “they were the powerful men of old, the famous men”. Another passage in Deuteronomy 33:2 describes God appearing with thousands of holy ones. The picture of God in this passage sounds like the origins of many other religions and myths. The gods of Roman mythology, Greek mythology, Norse mythology, and Germanic mythology all have similar stories of demigods – men who were part-divine, part-man, who rule under the power of an all-powerful god.
The Bible points to events that happen in other mythologies. Perhaps these accounts all come from a common source listed here.
