The Nephilim Seed

Don't you just love those "off the wall" scriptures that just make you say . . . what? Ah, but there's always an explanation. I made a few discoveries today about the book, The Nephilim Seed. James Scott Bell and I used the same scripture for the basis of our novels. His, of course, is published, and mine well . . . hopefully soon. He's actually read my book proposal and said that my one-page synsopsis was classic and flawless. Hmmmmm, I say. So today I opened to the first page and saw his autograph. I forgot that he had put his John Hancock on that thing. In any case here's the scripture we both used:

There were giants in the earth in those days:
and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto
the daughters of men, and they bare children to them,

the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.
(Genesis 6:4 NKJV)

Ah, yes, it's those pesky Nephilim, those dreaded sons of fallen angels, that polluted planet Earth with sin. Of course, we might have something to do with it all. But, hey, we've got to blame somebody, anybody but ourselves, right? There was, of course, Somebody who came to right all this wrong of Genesis but only a few believed J.C. actually fixed it. He did.

Nonetheless, I'm in the fourth chapter of Bell's novel and so far it packs a punch. I'll review this book as soon as I'm done.

Note: Click on the David and Goliath graphic and read about the "UFO Phenomenom and the Bible." Did I peak your interest?

Hmm. Some of the most interesting things in the Bible are often the throw away lines that no-one notices.

I have pondered over the Nephilim a lot. There are basically three theories, but my personal take is that fallen angels seduced women, had children and masqueraded as gods... leading man further astray from God. I think this might be where polytheistic mythology has it's roots.

I think we are often insulting to the intelligence of the ancients, we assume they made up stories to explain things... but what if they met these beings and were spun a web of clever lies to distract them from God?
