Iron and Myth 24 – Tis the Season to Talk About Giants

Studying topics like giants, gods, and dragons in the Bible is important.

But does focusing on these subjects detracts from the message of love, grace, and salvation in Jesus Christ?

Brian Godawa (www.Godawa.com), best-selling author of the new novel Cruel Logic, Doug Van Dorn (www.douglasvandorn.com), author of Giants: Sons of the Gods, and Dr. Judd Burton (www.BurtonBeyond.net), author of Interview With the Giant, join us to discuss the significance of geographic locations and religious context in biblical events with Derek Gilbert on A View From the Bunker.

Jesus himself waged war with demons, principalities and powers who rebelled against their Creator. We need a comprehensive theology that includes historical, cultural, and biblical knowledge. Without it, we cannot recognize or understand the devices of the enemy.

As our good friend the late Dr. Michael Heiser used to say, “If it’s in the Bible and it’s weird, it’s probably important.”

Podcast: The Best Summary I’ve Ever Done on the Nephilim and Watchers Paradigm in Scripture

 


I was on the Flyover Conservatives podcast with David Whited.

I am telling you, this is THE best summary, complete with Scriptures, that I have ever done on the Nephilim and the Watchers.

I traced the War of the Seed from Genesis 3 to Jesus, and talked about Giants in the Bible. They’re not just an anomaly. They are a theological message.

I talked about the Divine Council, the Deuteronomy 32 worldview, The Watcher paradigm as it is also traced through all of Scripture.

And how these two theological threads weave a tapestry through the Bible.

Very thorough. Very lively.

You’re gonna love it.

Iron and Myth Podcast: Spiritual Powers and Principalities

I was on the Iron and Myth Podcast again!

And this one was very interesting.

One of the difficulties in understanding the spirit realm is that New Testament authors, especially Paul, used the same Greek terms for both earthly and heavenly beings.

So, how do we understand terms like thrones, dominions, rulers, authorities, principalities, and powers? To borrow another phrase from Paul, as though we’re looking into a mirror darkly.

Joining me for the monthly Iron and Myth series with Pastor Doug Van Dorn, author of The Angel of the LORD;  Dr. Judd Burton, author of Interview With the Giant; and Derek Gilbert, the host of the show and author of multiple books on these topics.

We grapple with the terms used for denizens of the unseen realm, including the term rendered “saints” in English (and why it doesn’t always mean humans), and the mysterious Glorious Ones that, according to Peter and Jude, were blasphemed by rebellious persons within the first-century church.

We also discuss the reason that terms used of divine beings in the Old Testament apply to believers in the New Testament–because a day is coming when we will be restored to the divine council as inheritors of the Kingdom of God, replacing the rebellious elohim.

Iron and Myth Podcast: The Origin of Demons

DEMONS ARE the spirits of the giants destroyed in the Flood of Noah.

At least, that’s what Jews of the Second Temple period and the early Christian church believed.

Author and pastor Doug Van Dorn, bestselling author and award-winning screenwriter Brian Godawa, and Director of the Institute of Biblical Anthropology Dr. Judd Burton join Derek Gilbert’s podcast for our monthly Iron and Myth round table to discuss the origin of evil spirits. We dig into what the Bible says about these spirits, extrabiblical texts, and startling evidence that the demigod heroes of Greece like Herakles and Perseus were the Rephaim of the Amorites, Canaanites, and Hebrews.
