Just Who Were Those Nephilim, Anyway? (part 2)

No Christian podcast worth its salt can avoid answering the all-important question: just who were those Nephilim, anyway?

Chelsea and I present the second of three popular theories about the Nephilim: that they are the offspring of Seth's descendants intermarrying with Cain's rebellious descendants.

Theories about the Nephilim seem to depend on who were "the sons of God" and "the daughters of men" in Genesis chapter 6.

Join us as we explore arguments for this theory and arguments against it.
