Nephilim: Giants of Legend, Lessons for Today

We’re going to continue our deep-dive into something truly fascinating—the Nephilim. Now, if you’re scratching your head thinking, “The Neph-what?”, don’t worry; you’re in for one heck of a story.

Unearthing the Mystery

First up, a little primer from the archives of ancient texts, specifically Genesis 6:1-8. Picture this: a time when divine beings and humans coexist, and voilà, we have the birth of the Nephilim. Described often as giants (and we’re not talking basketball players here), these beings have shrouded themselves in mystery and debate for eons.

Who Were They, Really?

What Happened to Them?

Is This a Mirror Reflecting Our Own World?

Maybe we won’t end up as footnotes in an ancient text, but isn’t living a life true to ourselves the ultimate legend we can leave behind? The story of the Nephilim is a cautionary tale, a mythological nudge to check our reflections in the mirror of the ancient world and make sure we recognize who’s staring back.

Remember, the legends of old, like the Nephilim, aren’t just relics of the past; they’re lessons, warnings, and inspirations. Their stories, as grand and shadowy as they might be, are ultimately about us—about humanity, our weaknesses, our potential, and our timeless quest to find and preserve our best selves.

Looking forward to seeing you Sunday if not before!

Until Everyone Hears,
