Chater on the Flood-Book of Genesis
July 22, 2009 4:23am CST
The other day, my Bible Study group were discussing Noah and the Flood and in the course of the discussion, the question was raised regarding the first verses of the chapter where sons of God and daughters of men were mentioned and it was stated that the sons of God saw the daughters of men who were beautiful and took any of them as wife as they choose which was led to their being widespread evil, etc. Nephilim were also mentioned. We wanted to know what this verses referring to sons of God and Nephilim actually mean. Were there sons of God indeed and who were then considered as "men" What is the correct interpretation of this verses? Did God create other "men" after Adam and Eve and were their daughters the ones referred to as "daughters of men" And who were the Sons of God? Were they the sons of God fearing men or indeed sons of "God" What say you"

In the Book of Job satan, the adversary is referred to as a son of God, what with being an angel (albeit a fallen one).. many believe it was the mating of fallen angels with human women which accelerated the corruption of mankind previous to the flood.. others believe the sons of God were people of Adam's line, and the daughters of men were of Cain's lineage..
