Any simple reading of the passage concerning the Sons of God mating with the daughters of men shows that the Fallen angels mated with man and created Giants (Nephlim, the historical basis for the Greco-Roman pantheon?). The Nephlim were champions of their time and even were taken as gods.
With regard to the Dead Sea Scrolls :
The copy of the Genesis Apocryphon discovered at
Qumran dates back to the 2nd century B.C., but it was
obviously based on much older sources. When
discovered in 1947, it had been much mutilated from the
ravages of time and humidity. The sheets had become
so badly stuck together that years passed before the text
was deciphered and made known. When scholars
finally made public its content, the document confirmed
that celestial beings from the skies had landed on
planet Earth. More than that, it told how these beings
had mated with Earth-women and had begat giants.
Is this story myth or history, fable or fact? Specialized
research has revealed that many ancient legends have
a basis in fact. But to answer the question, let us consult
the most authoritative document known to man–the
In Genesis 6:1-4 the “sons of God” are captivated by the
beauty of the “daughters of men.” They subsequently
marry them and produce an offspring of giants known as
the Nephilim. Genesis goes on to say that these
Nephilim were “mighty men” and “men of renown.”
“Sons of God”? “Daughters of men”? What sort of beings
were these? Were they human or did they belong the Angelic species?
The early Church father Origen also held this view as well as many others.(He was deemed a heretic partly because of this)
Why do some say then, that the Sons of God are the Sons of Seth?
