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.
Renowned Bible scholar, author, friend, and mentor Dr. Michael Heiser stepped into eternity Monday, February 20, 2023.
All of us owe Mike a debt. Director of the Institute of Biblical Anthropology Dr. Judd Burton, bestselling author and award-winning screenwriter Brian Godawa, and Pastor Doug Van Dorn return this week with Derek Gilbert to share memories of Mike—how we first became aware of his work, how it’s influenced our lives, and the legacy Mike leaves behind.
I was on Derek Gilbert’s channel again, the podcast Iron and Myth.
Who or what are demons? Where do they come from, and how are they different from fallen angels?
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 best-selling author and biblical researcher Derek Gilbert for our monthly Iron and Myth round table to discuss evil spirits of the unseen realm—and the connections between the heroes of Greek mythology and the Nephilim of the Bible.
You will definitely want to know about my new movie coming out soon.
It’s called My Son Hunter, and it’s NOT a documentary, it’s a political satire that stars Laurence Fox as Hunter Biden and Gina Carano as a Secret Service Agent protecting Joe Biden.
I was interviewed by the producer on the Ann and Phelim Scoop podcast.
Watch this interview as I talk about our desire to make a movie about Hunter’s laptop that was a political satire, but also one that dealt with his humanity and his tragic flaws in a moral tale of finding truth in a world of lies.
I was on the Iron and Myth podcast again. This one is going to fascinate you.
IS CHAOS a symbol of disorder, or is it, as certain passages in the Bible suggest, an entity?
Back this month for another in our Iron and Myth series are Brian Godawa (www.godawa.com), author of Leviathan and Behemoth, Pastor Doug Van Dorn (www.douglasvandorn.com), author of Giants: Sons of the Gods, and Dr. Judd Burton (www.burtonbeyond.com), author of Interview with the Giant: Ethnohistorical Notes on the Nephilim.
We discuss the various ways chaos is described in the Bible (Leviathan, Rahab, a multi-headed sea dragon, and the sea itself), the apparent struggle to subdue chaos in scripture and in pagan cultures of the ancient world, and the disturbing connection between chaos and the modern UFO phenomenon.
Pastor Doug Van Dorn, author Brian Godawa, and Dr. Judd Burton join Derek Gilbert for a monthly ‘Iron and Myth’ session to discuss the death of the gods: When will it happen—or has it happened already?
