Bible 101

the pre flood world gen 6 1 7
The Pre Flood WorldGen 6:1-7
  • By the time of Noah, men had been on the earth for about 1500 yrs.
  • Vs.1 They were having children (multiplying).
    • Life spans were huge… 1 woman could have had hundreds of children
      • Some have speculated numbers over 7 billion people on earth before the flood
  • The pre-flood environmental conditions still existed
    • Impossible to know hom much different it is now, even though they were under the curse.
  • But then vs. 2 – the weird stuff starts to happen
    • More on them in a bit
  • Vs. 3 God decides that man will only live 120 yrs
    • Look at the chart, Jacob lived 147 years (800-1200 years after God made the decision)
      • Jacob and his predecessors were exceptions to the rule?
      • God allowed the life-spans to slowly drop over time, perhaps as a result of the environmental changes after the flood.
    • Some feel this was not a limit on life spans but a limit on the time remaining until the flood – Noah would have been 480 yrs old at the time of this statement.
  • vs. 4 there were Giants on the earth (Nephilim - Fallen ones)
  • Vs. 5 Man’s heart was wicked – every intent of the thoughts of his heart was evil, continually
    • Vs.11 The Earth was corrupt and filled with violence, ALL flesh was corrupt.
  • Vs. 6 the Lord was sorry (repented) He had made Man, Man Grieved God
  • Vs. 7 God decided that He would destroy everything on earth (Man, beast, birds and creeping things)

Bible 101

the two views of vs 2
The two Views of vs. 2
  • The “Godly line of Seth” view
    • View emerged around the 5th century
    • Son’s of God are Seth’s descendants
    • Daughters of men are Cain’s descendants
    • These two lines started to intermarry (ess. Christians marrying non-Christians, believers marrying non believers)
      • By product of these marriages were “famous and mighty men of renown”
      • But they were also wicked, because the ungodly influence of their mothers corrupted them.
    • So, God repented of creating them and decided to destroy them
      • And the animals had to suffer as well…
  • Why do they believe this?
    • It’s a more rational view, who would believe that fallen angels and human women could mate and produce offspring?
    • Main reason is from Jesus teaching in Matt 22:30 about the angels not marrying in heaven.
  • My main issues with this view:
    • Sons of God – only used 5 times in the OT, twice here, three times in Job – the Job references are angels (1:6; 2:1; 38:7) – every time the reference is to angels, never to men.
    • Sons of God – the title implies direct creations of God, Adam could have been “a son of God”
      • we are not creations of God, we are all born of women (sons and daughters of men - Gen 5:1-3)
    • True that angels in heaven don’t marry,
      • These angels aren’t in heaven, they are on earth
      • we could assume that these angels are fallen, rebellious angels that have an agenda.
    • MOST OBVIOUS REASON - Godly men who marry ungodly women do not have gigantic offspring, while they may become famous and/or mighty… they do not usually exceed 6-7feet tall.
    • If everyone on earth died except Noah’s family (all of the Godly line), how did the giants re-appear after the flood? (Vs.4)
    • If God had meant to convey “Sons of Seth” and “Daughters of Cain”, why didn’t He just SAY that?

Bible 101

the fallen angels view gen 6 2 4
The fallen angels viewGen 6:2;4
  • The Sons of God – “bene-Elohim”
    • Every ref. to this phrase (5 total) refers to angels, never once to men.
    • Job 1:6; 2:1; best one 38:7
  • Daughters of men – human females – duh!
  • Children of these unions were called:
    • Giants (Nephilim)
    • Mighty Men
    • Men of renown
  • How is this possible?
    • I dunno
    • Jude 6-7 – confirms that it did happen
      • There are angels reserved in everlasting chains, why?
      • Left heaven… I assume came to earth
      • Like the men of Sodom, gave themselves over to sexual immorality
      • Went after strange flesh (law of reproduction… each after its own kind)

Bible 101

the fallen angels view p2
The fallen angels view, p2
  • Why would the fallen angels do this?
    • To corrupt the human race – for sure…
    • we are bad on our own… but these Nephilim were evil all the time
    • If Satan had corrupted all of us… then we wouldn’t be “men” anymore.
    • A man could not be born of a woman who could come back and crush Satan’s head.
  • Another interesting fact – 1 Cor 11:10 – girls hate this portion of scripture anyway… here is another reason.
    • Symbol of authority (in those days – a cover) on her head
    • Because of the Angels – hmm… you bunch of tempters
    • If angels stumbled over you girls, us men don’t have a chance – so cover up!
  • This view was the generally accepted view by:
    • The early rabbis (not modern)
    • The early church
    • The new testament writers (Jude, Paul)
    • Many conservative scholars today, but not all

Bible 101

giants gen 6 4
GiantsGen 6:4
  • One of the ways we figure out what a word means is to look at how its used
  • Hebrew word – Nephilim –
    • Verb form – Gen. translated to fall (fallen by the sword) or to fall away
    • Gen 6:4/ Num 13:33 are nouns – found only 2 times in the OT
      • (YLT) translates as “the fallen ones”
      • So where did we get the word “Giant” – They were really big people
  • Greek word (LXX) – Gigantes – “earth born”
    • Greek, I thought the OT was in Hebrew… it was, up until 285 b.c. (300 years before Jesus was born)
    • Jews needed the OT in a language they could read
    • Every time Paul quotes the OT in his letters, its from the LXX, not the Hebrew
    • Same word used to describe the “Titans” – part God and part man
  • Descriptions:
    • 1 Chron 20:6 - 6 fingers/6 toes (20:4-8 interesting read)
    • Deut 3:11 - Og of Bashan’s bed was 9 cubits wide X 4 cubits wide (15.75ft long, 7 feet wide) – Og may have been 13-14ft tall.
      • Our beds are generally 7 ft. long
    • 1 Sam 17:4 – Goliath was between 10-11ft tall, armor weighed 156lbs… (smaller than Og?)
  • Death…
    • Isa 26:14 – the word for “they are deceased” is “Rapha” which is a form from which we get Rephaim.
      • Rephaim is one of many names for the Giants in the promised land.
      • Other names are Anakim (Goliaths family), Emim, Zamzummim, Zuzim
      • Og of Bashan was a remnant of the Rephaim
    • Apparently when they die, they go to hell (sheol), they are not going to be resurrected to judgement.
      • Some creepy examples – Isa 14:9 – the dead; Isa 26:14 – “they are deceased”;

Bible 101

noah gen 6 8 10
NoahGen 6:8-10
  • Vs. 9 – 3 statements about Noah
    • A just man
      • Lawful, righteous correct
    • (like Enoch) He walked with God
    • Perfect in his generations
      • Tamiym – complete, whole, sound, entire
      • Appears 47 times in the OT, used 2 ways
        • Translated as upright, perfect – moral sense
          • Sometimes as a command, rather than an accomplishment “be perfect”
        • Sometimes used to describe the quality of perfection – not moral but in quality
          • It was a perfect day.
        • also used to describe the perfection of the sacrifice – in the sense of Physical perfection – without defect or blemish
      • Some speculate that was perfect about him was not his Morality, but his Genome – he wasn’t tainted by the fallen angels
  • Vs 8 – most important verse about Noah
    • Found grace
      • (Khane - grace, favor, acceptance)
    • Praise God so did we.
