This video explores one of the most enigmatic portions of scripture, namely the identities of the Nephilim, and the sons of G-d. The terms have been translated as giants of men, and fallen angels by many throughout the ages. Surprisingly, this was not the go to answer in Judaism, or in later Christian thought, and therefore the "or something else." I examine where these ideas come from, and present the normative view of the Jewish sages throughout the ages. The video has been time coded for easy reference. Sources are in the blog:
