THE SONS OF GOD saw that the daughters of men were fair, and they took as their wives any they chose.
This story is at the root of many of the spiritual practices of the ancient world—pagan, Jewish, and Christian.
But when did the transgression of the bene ha-elohim take place?
We’re joined again by screenwriter and novelist Brian Godawa, pastor and author Doug Van Dorn (https://douglasvandorn.com/), and archaeologist and author Dr. Judd Burton (burtonbeyond.com/) for our latest edition of Iron and Myth. We discuss the fall of the Watchers, including some fascinating passages in Numbers and Isaiah that may be prophecies of the ultimate destruction of the rebellious Watchers and their hybrid offspring, the Nephilim.
From Derek’s Channel: It’s a virtual roundtable this week as we’re joined by three men who have invested a lot of time and energy into untangling scripture from myths and legends of the ancient world to understand why the Hebrew prophets and apostles were led to include giants in the Bible.
Taking part in the discussion, which may well become a regular feature, are:
* Author and screenwriter Brian Godawa (www.godawa.com)
* Pastor and author Doug Van Dorn (www.douglasvandorn.com)
* Archaeologist, historian, author, and teacher Dr. Judd Burton (www.burtonbeyond.com, www.tioba.org)
Among other topics, we discuss the motives of the rebellious “sons of God” referred to in Genesis 6:1–4, how they hope to escape the sentence of death God proclaimed in Psalm 82, and whether verse 1 of that psalm describes a courtroom scene in God’s divine council or His intrusion into the “council of El,” creator-god of the pagan Canaanites.
This is my most in-depth podcast interview on the subject of preterism and Bible Prophecy.
Josh Peck’s podcast, Peck Underground Church. It went five hours!
Josh is an enthusiastic and kind host who is gracious in disagreeing over issues like prophecy.
We talk all about my conversion out of Left Behindism, explicit passages that are an introduction to preterist interpretations, how we should treat those with whom we disagree over prophecy, Matthew 24, a little about Revelation, and we had a whole lotta fun!
You will too. You will be caught up in the fascinating pace of it all and will wonder, where did the hours go???
