Are the “Sons of God” in Genesis 6 Fallen Angels?

Episode 565 Show Notes 

From the Show

In the book of Genesis, what is being traced? The godly seed. Think back to the promises of Genesis 3, where the seed of the woman is going to crush the head of the serpent. If this is one of the major themes of the book of Genesis, maybe that should be the focus because we know that the seed of the woman who crushes the head of the serpent is Jesus Christ.

Questions in this Episode

  1. 1. There is a church in our town that has an alternative event for kids to attend instead of trick-or-treating. What do you think about these types of alternative events?

2. Is it ok for Christians to eat pork now, or is it something we should still refrain from like in the Old Testament?

3. What does the word “repent” really mean? Does it mean to ‘stop sinning,’ or does it mean, ‘a change of mind leading to a changed life’?

4. Are the Sons of God in Genesis 6 angels? In the Gospel of Matthew it seems to indicate that angels cannot participate in things like marriage and sex. I do not put too much thought or stock into this, but I am wondering what you all think about this view of angels being the “Sons of God” in Genesis 6.
