The Bible on Modern Hybrids – Nephilim

The Bible on Modern Hybrids (Nephilim)

(As the “modern nephilim” claim and scriptural argument is peculiar to those who accept the “sons of God” to be angels in Gen 6, this series of articles on this assumes this stance for the sake or arguing what the rest of scripture would show, if this assumption was true.)

The Concept of Paternal Spiritual Lineage
The Bible contains within it what I am calling the concept of “Paternal Spiritual Lineage”. The Bible teaches:

The spirit of a child is multiplied from the spirit (having life) of the child’s father.

A child’s spirit, which is tied to the gift of life itself, is not created completely anew by God and deposited by God at conception, but rather is grown from the spirit of the child’s father. Same as the body of a child is grown from the egg and sperm which combine upon conception, the spirit of a child is grown out of the spirit of the father. His contribution as the giver of the spirit (having life) of the child serves as his major contribution, as the growth of the child’s body in the mother by pregnancy serves as her major contribution. Only the mother can grow the child in her body, through her body, and only the father contributes to the growing of the spirit of a child, which is necessary for the child to have life, from his own spirit. The soul (mind/will/emotions) and the body of the child are of equal contribution from the mother and the father. The child will be like both mother and father in the traits of their body and soul. (Though technically the father’s contribution of sperm is solely what determines the gender of the child.) But the spirit of a child is a one-size-fits-all matter, as the spirit which gives life in each person, of either gender, is exactly the same.
2.  A child’s spirit is of the same type as the child’s father.

Because the mother contributes nothing to the spirit that a child is grown from, and is alive from, it means that the father solely determines the type of the spirit of a child. There are several types of spirits that exist, or that God created: human, angel, and then there is God Himself, who is spirit. If a child has a human type of spirit, or an angel type of spirit, or the spirit of God, is determined solely by the child’s father. A woman’s spirit is not multiplied and grown into a child’s spirit (having life), nor involved in the process, much in the same way that her egg does not determine the gender of the child, but only the contribution of the father determines the gender.
3. The generational curses passed on to a child are indicated to only come from the paternal ancestors of a child, and not the mother or the maternal ancestors, but do come from paternal ancestors on the maternal line. Yet the blessings come from both the mother and the father of a child. This is consistent with the pattern of the first two points above, yet shows that God visits iniquities as He keeps record, and iniquities visited or blessings given are not determined by body or spirit multiplication lineage.
Now to show the above points in the Bible:
First God made Adam,
“And the LORD God formed man [of] the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became aliving soul.” (Gen 2:7)
The word here for “soul” is clarified in the New Testament,
1 Cor 15:45 “And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit.”
The word here for “soul” is “psyche” and it means “life” and “soul”. It is also used in: Matt 10:28 “And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.”
There is a different word for “spirit” used in 1 Cor 15, which is “pneuma”.
This is the “breathe of life” in Gen 2:7 which references to the “spirit” which gives life.
“The Spirit of God hath made me, and the breath of the Almighty hath given me life.” (Job 33:4)
“All the while my breath [is] in me, and the spirit (ruach) of God [is] in my nostrils” (Job 27:3)
“And the LORD said, My spirit (ruach) shall not always strive with man, for that he also [is] flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.” (Gen 6:3)
The spirit of life in man was given by God to Adam in Gen 2:7, and is the spirit of man. Without God striving with the spirit of man, it no longer has life, but the man dies. But as long as God strives with the spirit of man, the man lives. The point being that a man being alive is tied to him having the spirit, of life, giving life, as God breathed into Adam.
The spirit of life, giving life to the body, is in the blood,
“For the life of the flesh [is] in the blood: and I have given it to you upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls: for it [is] the blood [that] maketh an atonement for the soul.” Lev 17:11
As such the spirit of man, and life, is tied to the blood of the man’s body.
God specifies that people reproduce through multiplication, saying:
“Be fruitful and multiply” (Gen 1:28).
What is multiplication? God demonstrated multiplication for us, by how God made Eve from a little piece, a rib, taken from Adam. (The rib itself contains blood in the marrow, and the life of the body is in the blood.)
“And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.” (Gen 2:21-22)
God is not recorded to have breathed the spirit, the breathe of life, into Eve in order for her to become a living soul. Nor is God recorded to have repeated this process with Cain, Abel, Seth, or any of their children. God breathed the spirit of life into Adam who became a living soul, and God is recorded to have done this only one time, with Adam.
Then Adam had a spirit and a soul and was alive.
When God made Eve, He multiplied her body from Adam’s body, and God multiplied her soul from Adam’s soul, and God multiplied her spirit from Adam’s spirit.
And as she had a body (with life in the blood) and spirit (the breathe of life) she also became a living soul, through the process of multiplication.
As such, Eve was multiplied from Adam, in body, soul, and spirit. God did this with Eve Himself, but from that point on the same thing would occur with Adam and Eve multiplying to have children, through the natural process God set in place.
This does not negate that that God forms each person in the womb (Is 44:2,24) but the point is that the building materials, a seed, are already in place for God to build from, not just in regards to multiplying a new body, but to a new soul and spirit as well. All are multiplied from what already exists in the father and mother.
That the body and soul (mind, emotions, will) of the mother are inherited traits of a child is obvious, children look like their mothers, have psychological traits like their mothers, the intelligence of their mother, etc. And so we know that both the body and soul of the mother contribute to the body and soul (mind/will/emotions) of the child. Both the mother and father’s soul and body are part of the multiplying process to form a child. Each contributes an equal number of chromosomes, to combine in conception, for the physical body, and the same would make sense of the soul (mind/will/emotions) as well.
But the father’s sperm alone determines whether the child will be a male or a female, and these are the two types of humans. “So God created man in his [own] image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.” (Gen 1:27)
A similar parallel is seen in the spiritual lineage. It is the type of the father’s spirit which solely decides the type of the spirit of the child, and which solely contributes the “breathe of life” itself to the child at conception. This is as automatic, of a natural (spiritual) process, and out of the hands of the child’s father, as is pregnancy in a woman, and her body growing the child’s body. Without the father, the mother’s body grows the child’s body, and the man also just as essentially contributes to the life of the child, by solely contributing the spirit by which the child is multiplied, and in this has the breathe of life.
This is why the Bible over and over again refers to the father alone as begetting a child. Mothers are not said to beget children. The life of the body is in the blood, which is built in the mother’s body in pregnancy. The child would not live without blood, built with the mother’s body, nor without the spirit giving life, built with the father’s spirit. As such their contributions are equally important and essential in producing a child. And it is God who works the miracle of forming a child, in any case. But while the child comes from both the mother and father, ultimately the child’s spirit, having life, only comes from the father’s spirit being multiplied into the spirit of the child, so it had life. This is balanced with only the mother’s body building the body of the child in pregnancy. Life therefore ultimately is inherited from the father, from the spirit. And this is why the Bible repeatedly says that fathers beget their children, in numerous place, here’s one:
Matt 1:2  “Abraham begat Isaac; and Isaac begat Jacob; and Jacob begat Judas and his brethren”
Moving onto two case examples, the same word for “begat” is used in 1 Jn 5:1
“Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God: and every one that loveth Him that begat, loveth him also that is begotten of Him.”
Jesus Christ was begotten of God the Father. Jesus Christ is the only begotten son of God, but He also is God. In this we can clearly see that the type of spirit of the father solely determines the type of the spirit of the child. The three types of spirits which exist are God, angel, and human. Jesus Christ is the God type of spirit, is God, because His Father is God. Jesus Christ could not have a spirit that was only half-God-spirit, and half-human-spirit, but rather:  “For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.” (Col 2:9) Jesus Christ came in the flesh (2 John 1:7) and was man (1 Tim 2:5), but also Jesus Christ is God, and came from above, existing eternally, creating all things (Jn 8:23, 8:58, Jn 1). Additionally, we can see that the Bible says Jesus was a man because of His body, even though the spirit of Jesus is God as Jesus is God. The type of the spirit of the child is determined by the type of the spirit of the father alone.
We can also see that in humans, a man with a human spirit begets a child who also has a human spirit, as this is true throughout the Bible. This is also seen in the case of Adam and Eve, in which she also had a human spirit, herself being multiplied from Adam.
But as for their children, the Bible says the children came through Eve, as in “passing through”. The word here “dia” means “a motion through”.
1 Cor 11:8,12 “For the man is not out of the woman, but the woman is out of the man;  For just as the woman is out of the man, in this manner also the man is through the woman; but all together from God.”
The distinction is clearly made that while Eve came out of Adam, and while daughters come out of their fathers, that all men (and women) since have come “through” their mother, not “out of” her. But all women (and men) have come “out of” their fathers. Applying this to Eve, this means her children came through her, but out of Adam.
The next case to look at is that of Adam. God said to Adam, “Of every tree of the garden you may freely eat; but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die.” (Gen 2:16-17)
We can know that this was not referring to physical death, but to a spiritual death, because Adam did not die the day that he ate from the tree. This is also made clear when compared to Gen 3:22-24:
“Then the LORD God said, “Behold, the man has become like one of Us, to know good and evil. And now, lest he put out his hand and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live forever”— therefore the LORD God sent him out of the garden of Eden to till the ground from which he was taken. So He drove out the man; and He placed cherubim at the east of the garden of Eden, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to guard the way to the tree of life.”
The tree of life would cause spiritual immortality, but the tree of the knowledge of good and evil would cause spiritual death or dying. Immortality of the spiritual seems to lead to immortality of the body, and death of the spiritual seems to lead to death of the body. From this is can be gathered that Adam was made with neither certain death nor immortal life, but in a neutral state, and could choose to go either way, or choose either tree.
When he chose the tree leading to death of the spirit he had, this death passed onto his children, as they were all multiplied from his spirit. His spirit dying did not cause him to no longer have a spirit, but simply to have an ‘inert husk’ of one, for him to have a dead spirit, instead of a living one, but he still had one. And somehow just having a spirit (even dead or dying) is still enough to bring life to the mortal body, and the living soul. (And it is the Holy Spirit which makes the dead spirit we have to be born again, to eternal life.)
We know that the state of Adam’s spirit, of being dead or dying, was passed to all the rest of humanity his children, as this is made clear in the New Testament:
“Therefore, just as through one man sin entered into the world, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men, because all sinned– for until the Law sin was in the world, but sin is not imputed when there is no law. Nevertheless death reigned from Adam until Moses, even over those who had not sinned in the likeness of the offense of Adam, who is a type of Him who was to come. But the free gift is not like the transgression. For if by the transgression of the one the many died, much more did the grace of God and the gift by the grace of the one Man, Jesus Christ, abound to the many. The gift is not like that which came through the one who sinned; for on the one hand the judgment arose from one transgression resulting in condemnation, but on the other hand the free gift arose from many transgressions resulting in justification. For if by the transgression of the one, death reigned through the one, much more those who receive the abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ. So then as through one transgression there resulted condemnation to all men, even so through one act of righteousness there resulted justification of life to all men. For as through the one man’s disobedience the many were made sinners, even so through the obedience of the One the many will be made righteous. The Law came in so that the transgression would increase; but where sin increased, grace abounded all the more, so that, as sin reigned in death, even so grace would reign through righteousness to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” Rom 5:12-21 NASB
“For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive. And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit.”
1 Cor 15:21-22, 45
In these passages it is made clear that death passed to all people by Adam alone. This is explained in that Adam was the one original spirit/soul from which all others were multiplied. All of Adam’s children inherited a dying/dead spirit, as it is only the spirit of the father which is multiplied to the children, giving them life. The Bible is specific that it is only by the transgression “of the one” and that “death reigned through the one”.
As such Eve is not included in the multiplying of the spirit, but only Adam, and this includes the attribute of ‘the sinful nature’ or dead-state of the spirit (as well as the type of the spirit).
And so both in the case of Adam begetting all humanity, and in God begetting only Jesus Christ, we can see that the type of spirit of a child, and the attributes of a child’s spirit, come only from that child’s father, and not from the child’s mother.
If Eve’s spirit was involved 50/50 in the multiplying of the spirit of a child, then 1 Cor 15 and Rom 5 could not say what they say without contradiction, as they both point solely to Adam. If Mary’s spirit was 50/50 involved in the multiplying of the spirit of Jesus Christ, then he would spiritually be less than fully God, spiritually speaking.
The first two points being covered, onto the third point, which is told in:
Ex 20:5-6

“Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God [am] a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth [generation] of them that hate me; And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.”
The word here for “fathers” refers to only paternal ancestors, and not to maternal ones. As such, one might assume that these iniquities are passed down per the concept of Paternal Spiritual Lineage; however this is not the case. God says He will visit the iniquities of the paternal ancestors onto the children. The verse does not indicate that this will occur naturally, as part of a natural process as by multiplying children. This cannot be the case, because every child has “fathers” or paternal ancestors on both their mom’s and dad’s side.
The paternal ancestors of a child’s mother are also referred to here and nothing in these verses restricts the “fathers” to only the child’s paternal side. As such, this “visiting of iniquities” cannot be based on the multiplying of the spirit of the father to produce the child, and is an unrelated matter, even if it bears some similarity.
Rather, God Himself here refers to a record that He seems to keep, of not only the paternal-paternal line, but also of the maternal-paternal line, meaning the male ancestors of a child on both sides of the child’s family.
Additionally, no gender restrictions are placed on God showing mercy unto a thousand generations of those that love Him and keep His commandments. This means a generational blessing of God’s mercy can pass on through either the mother or the father of a child, through their ancestors, without any gender restriction. Again, this confirms that the concept of “generational curses” is not based on the multiplying of the spirit from a child’s father. However, some similarity in how God’s spiritual rules work is found, in that the iniquities of the fathers are visited, and the mothers are not. But this makes little difference, as the iniquities are visited on both the male and female children, and a mother may have the same iniquity visited on her that her father had, as may her children.
A second witness to God actively keeping record like this is found in Psalm 109:14,
“Let the iniquity of his fathers be remembered with the LORD; and let not the sin of his mother be blotted out.”
Another reason this is known to be unrelated to multiplication is because there is nothing hard-wired about specific iniquities, as a person may repent of a particular sin at any time, or reject an iniquity that is being visited upon them, without the spirit (or body or soul) they were born with changing in some basic hard-wired way (Eze 18).
In summary, two witnesses are to be found in scripture, in the cases of Jesus Christ and Adam, which together show: the spirit of a child is multiplied from the spirit of the child’s father, giving life, and that a child’s spirit is of the same type as the child’s father.
Also the attributes of the life of the spirit of the father pass onto the child, such as Jesus Christ being eternal and immortal, and Adam’s sinful nature and death. However, the sinful nature and dead-state of Adam’s spirit is a general matter, and the specific iniquities of a father that are visited on the children are not based on the spirit being multiplied from the father to the child.

Part 2
There is a third example in scripture which shows this point about Paternal Spiritual Lineage, which is found in Gen 6.

This is the case of the “sons of God” and their children the Nephilim-giants.
“And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they [were] fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose. And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also [is] flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years. There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare [children] to them, the same [became] mighty men which [were] of old, men of renown.” Gen 6:1-4
The term “sons of God” refers to angels (Gen 6:2,4 Job 1:6, 2:1, 38:7), and the Nephilim-giants were the children of the “sons of God” and human women. In Jude 1 and 2 Pet 2 these “sons of God” are described as angels who sinned by leaving their own domain, are compared to those who “gave themselves over to fornication, going after strange flesh”, and who are now imprisoned in Tartaros. Their actions made them become fallen angels.
“And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day. Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.” Jude 1:6-7
“For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast [them] down to hell (Tartaros), and delivered [them] into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment; And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth [person], a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly; And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned [them] with an overthrow, making [them] an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly” 2 Pet 2:4-6
The chronology in 2 Pet 2:4-6 places the time of their sin to be immediately before the flood, so we can know these are one and the same fallen angels who are referred to in Gen 6:1-4. And we know that these fallen angels in particular who committed this sin are now bound and imprisoned in Tartaros as the sentence for their crime. (Though others are not imprisoned, who did not commit this particular crime, see Rev 12, Luke 4, Eph 6:12.)
We can gather that several things would be true about the offspring of this union, based on the concept of Paternal Spiritual Lineage.

As angels are immortal spirits, their children the Nephilim-giants would have immortal spirits. This is the same as God the Father and Jesus, except that God is eternal, and the angels and their offspring all had a beginning point, being created.

As the angels who sired these Nephilim-giants were sinful, the offspring would be sinful also.

As Jesus Christ was God in spirit, but man in body, we can gather that the Nephilim-giants were fallen-angel in spirit, but men in body. Jesus Christ is the only Biblical example to work from on what would happen in a situation like this. He had the spirit of God, but a human body and the Bible calls Him a “man”, so He is a man, and had the body of a man. As such these Nephilim must have had mortal human bodies, but immortal sinful spirits. These Nephilim-giants were men, having a human body, though the spirit of a fallen-angel, just as much as Jesus Christ was man, having a human body and the spirit of God. The Bible calls Jesus a man, in truth (1 Tim 2:5). With the same amount of truth, these Nephilim-giants were also men.

The Nephilim-giants all died in the flood, in regards to their bodies. But based on their Paternal Spiritual Lineage, we should expect for their spirits to not have died, but rather to be immortal. As such they should be mentioned later on in the Bible, if the concept of Paternal Spiritual Lineage is true.
There are only 3 things we know about them. They should be able to be identified as immortal evil spirits, who do not have a body of their own. This precisely matches the Biblical description and accounts of demons in the Bible. And so the concept of Paternal Spiritual Lineage leads us to the point that demons in the Bible are the disembodied evil spirits of the dead Nephilim-giants.
Demons have the spirits of a fallen-angel (though not the spirit-body of an angel) and are immortal. They cannot receive eternal life as a gift, because they already are immortal. Repeatedly in the New Testament Jesus generalizes that the demons work for Satan, and says that Christians will cast out demons in His name. Satan is called the prince of demons, and it is obvious that the demons are adversaries to Christians, and work for Satan. Just like fallen angels, demons seem to be incapable of receiving salvation, because just as fallen angels are immortal and there is no way for them to be “born-again”. Demons, in being immortal, cannot be “born-again”. Humans have a spirit, in an inert-dead state, which while essential to having mortal life, does nothing towards eternal life.
The inert-dead human spirit must be born-again, regenerated, by the Holy Spirit:
“Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God… Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and [of] the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.” John 3:3,5
The Nephilim-giants are called “men” by the Bible (Gen 6:5), yet they cannot be born-again by the Spirit because they already are alive immortal spirits, which we know as demons. They cannot be born-again like humans with human-type spirits, and therefore cannot enter into the kingdom of God. In this the Bible generally seems to classify them in the same category as fallen angels, in many ways, though less powerful because they lack the spirit-bodies that fallen angels were created to have, demons are still categorized like fallen angels when it comes to the issue of salvation and who they work for.
It is for this reason that it is very important to establish that there are in fact no “modern nephilim hybrids” living today esp. who look human and live among us, which is what this website attempts to do. This same information that the Bible teaches on the concept of Paternal Spiritual Lineage, when applied to the story of the Nephilim in Genesis, shows that there were not any Nephilim after the flood of Noah, and that there is no evidence for any Nephilim living today, nor will there be. Please continue on to the next article in this series.

See original at:

The Nephilim
According to the understanding of the concept of Paternal Spiritual Lineage, which we have covered, there are several things we can know right off the bat about Nephilim.
Jesus had a human body, but the spirit of God, and is God, but is a man and called such by the Bible, having a human body. In consistency, the same is true of the Nephilim. Jesus Christ is the only Biblical example by which to understand what these Nephilim were, and per that example: they had a fallen-angel spirit, but a human body, and are called men by the Bible.
“And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they [were] fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose. And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also [is] flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years. There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare [children] to them, the same [became] mighty men which [were] of old, men of renown.” Gen 6:1-4
In order for the Bible to be speaking truth in calling the Nephilim “men” then they must have been “men” in some way, without exception. This is the same as Jesus is called a “man” and was human without exception. In both cases this is not a matter of the spirit, but a matter of having a purely human body. The Nephilim had human bodies with all that entails, human chromosomes, DNA, etc. To say otherwise, one would have to also deny that Jesus was human, and had a human body, and defy the internal consistency of the Bible.
Science also verifies that the chromosomes and DNA of a human mother put a huge amount of limitation on the DNA and chromosomes the fallen angels would have to use in impregnating a woman. Namely, that a human woman’s DNA and chromosomes could only pair successfully with the DNA and chromosomes that they were designed to pair with, that of a human male. The DNA and chromosomes these fallen angels had to use in order to impregnate these women must have been so matching that of a human male, as to have been indistinguishable from that of a human male.
While it is difficult to find a scientific commentary on fallen angel/ human interbreeding in Genesis 6, the same point about Genetics has been made about theoretical “aliens”:
“If alien and human DNA is so different, hybridization would be impossible. This is not only true on the sequence level, but the chromosomes have to pair as well.”
Dr. Robert Carter, Geneticist, An Analysis of the Genetics of the Supposed Starchild
The same science and principle of Genetics applies in the case of the fallen angels and the human women. In order for hybridization to be possible, the fallen angels had to pair the chromosomes and DNA sequences so as to match that of a human man, otherwise no offspring would result, at all. In order for these women to become pregnant, and be mothers to the Nephilim, the fallen angels had to take into consideration the egg of the woman and tailor the process to suit her chromosomal and DNA sequence requirements for what God designed to work in the science of biology and genetics.
The simplest explanation as to what fallen angels used in impregnating these women is that God created angels all male, and having some sort of residual sperm that came about while in human form on Earth, but sperm which God never intended them to use.
As such, it seems the DNA and chromosomes that the fallen angels bodies could produce was a human match, but flawed, containing genetic deterioration (in comparison to the God-designed perfect DNA of Adam), leading to malformation. It seems very likely that God built into the angels these genetic deteriorations, in how He designed their spirit-bodies to work should they take human form on Earth, but in any case they apparently could do no better than something which was flawed, however it worked. Yet it was correct enough to pass for human male DNA and chromosomes, when it came to combining with the DNA and chromosomes in the egg of a human woman.
But in this, we do know that the Nephilim looked human, and their DNA and chromosomes were human, even if they had miniscule flaws or deterioration in the sequences in comparison to the more ideal DNA of the humans living at the time. This is no different than humans today, who have DNA and chromosomes deteriorated since the time of Adam, or even the time of Noah. The DNA or chromosomes of a human do not have to be as perfect as Adam’s, the original, in order for a person to be considered to have a human body. Otherwise, none of us would qualify as being human, as all of us have some genetic flaws which have accumulated over time, which is just part of being in the fallen creation which has been subjected to corruption and decay.(Rom 8:20-22)
The Nephilim had bodies which were human enough for them to be called men (Gen 6:5) by God in the Bible, on the basis of their bodies being human, despite that they seemed to have a level of genetic decay more than the humans around them, in comparison.
In Gen 6:3 when God says “with man, for he also is flesh” this is also translated as “man is indeed flesh”.  And so the same concept is referred to, that part of what makes a man to be considered a man is his flesh, his human body, and man “is indeed flesh”. Having a human body is enough for the Bible to say that someone is a man, and this is the same for both Jesus Christ, and also for the Nephilim.
From an understanding of Paternal Spiritual Lineage, we can understand that God was likely speaking in Gen 6:3 to the angels (sons of God) who took human wives. The chronology of these verses makes much more sense when one understands that after these angels took wives, God spoke up to say something to these falling angels.
What did God say?
“And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he is indeed flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.” Gen 6:3
God made it clear that “man” is “indeed flesh” and that “man” would live only 120 years.
Who was God saying this to? The angels likely thought it possible that if they had children with the wives they had taken, that these children would live forever, as they did. As such it would make sense that in response God told them that this would not be the case, but rather that “man” would only live 120 years. The “man” referenced to here was first and foremost the Nephilim. The placement of Gen 6:3 after the angels took wives, and before the mention of their offspring, gives a clear context that God was speaking to the angels (and perhaps also their human wives) about their offspring to follow, the Nephilim. The placement indicates that God likely pronounced this once the Nephilim were conceived, but before they were born. This would have been at the time when God starting forming these Nephilim in the wombs of these women who were their mothers. (Is 44:2,24)
In those days it is recorded that the line of Adam, until the flood, on average lived 857 years. This is far longer than the 120 years that God said the Nephilim would live, speaking to their parents. The explanation for why these Nephilim would have far shorter-than-normal lifespans was that “man is indeed flesh”. This shortened lifespan was all very abnormal at the time.
The word here for “man” in Gen 6:3 is “adam”, which both referred to the “Nephilim” in that they had human bodies, just as human as any other “adam”. This also seems to have been a prophetic warning that all “adam” would only live 120 years in the future. This seems to be a case of a prophetic warning having a dual meaning, both that the Nephilim would only live 120 years, due to their flesh, and that all mankind would come to be like this also.
This prophetic warning of shortened lifespans to 120 years has come to pass. But as the Bible indicates God spoke this prophecy to the parents of the Nephilim, by the placement of this verse, it makes sense that their actions in interbreeding were going to be the cause of this change. The Bible seems to indicate that this change in lifespans would be coming through the Nephilim that followed in Gen 6:4, and then on to the rest of mankind.
What does the word Nephilim mean? To quote Dr. Michael S. Heiser,
“In the form we find it in the Hebrew Bible, if the word nephilim came from Hebrew naphal, it would not be spelled as we find it. The form nephilim cannot mean “fallen ones” (the spelling would then be nephulim). Likewise nephilim does not mean “those who fall” or “those who fall away” (that would be nophelim). The only way in Hebrew to get nephilim from naphal by the rules of Hebrew morphology (word formation) would be to presume a noun spelled naphil and then pluralize it. I say “presume” since this noun does not exist in biblical Hebrew — unless one counts Genesis 6:4 and Numbers 13:33, the two occurrences of nephilim— but that would then be assuming what one is trying to prove! However, in Aramaic the noun naphil(a) does exist. It means “giant,” making it easy to see why the Septuagint (the ancient Greek translation of the Hebrew Bible) translated nephilimas gigantes (“giant”). Here is a screen shot (not good quality) of Aramaic naphil(a) from Morris Jastrow’s Dictionary of the Targumim, the Talmud Babli and Yerushalmi, and the Midrashic Literature (1903; page 923, or page 243 of 1061 of the online PDF of volume 2).”

Dr. Michael S. Heiser, PhD,
The word Nephilim means giants, and so by definition the Nephilim were all giants.
Having human bodies, that were purely human, human chromosomes, human DNA, the Nephilim must have had human gigantism, caused by the same mechanisms as people who have gigantism today. This is the simplest answer for how the human bodies of the Nephilim were giant. The same processes that are required to take place in a human body today in order for gigantism to result, must have been the same processes that took place in the human bodies of the Nephilim in order for their gigantism to result.
As per modern medical understanding, pituitary gigantism today is caused by a tumor (cancerous growth in) the pituitary gland in the brain, which causes an overproduction of Human Growth Hormone. (1) While some cases of pituitary tumors like this occur randomly, others are genetically linked and pass down through families. (2)
One such case of this is FIPA, Familial Pituitary Isolated Adenomas, which causes both Growth hormone secreting pituitary tumors in childhood (resulting in gigantism) and in adulthood (resulting in acromegaly). FIPA is a hereditary genetic condition which is autosomal dominant with incomplete penetrance. That means it is not sex linked, and either gender can get it, and it is a dominant trait (overtaking recessive traits) but that it only does this some of the time, so people can carry the disorder without having it, and the result varies for those who have it (acromegaly up to full gigantism). (3)
Hereditary gigantism today, like in the example of FIPA, is likely the closest example we have to what the Nephilim had, because what they had caused gigantism, could be carried by someone who did not express the disorder, and because it is hereditary.
People with gigantism today typically have a greatly decreased lifespan. Many giants throughout recent history only lived to their 20s. This closely parallels with the Nephilim-giants that God indicated would only live to be 120 years, when 857 years was the average recorded lifespan. As such there is some parallel in both the gigantism of the Nephilim-giants and the decrease in their lifespan (compared to normal), although these two issues are not shown to be strictly genetically linked, more like two separate genetic problems. If so then it makes sense that as humanity today only lives about 120 years at most, because the genetic problem of the Nephilim’s shortened lifespan spread throughout humanity’s genetics, effecting lifespans of humans from that point forward, separate from the genetic problem of pituitary gigantism, only affecting some.
How would this work? According to an understanding of Paternal Spiritual Lineage, the spirit of the child comes solely from the father of the child. The Bible seems to specify that the first generation of Nephilim were all male (Gen 6:4), but at the same time specifying the nephilim were “men” (Gen 6:5) therefore having human bodies, therefore being capable to reproduce as the bodies of human men do. Understanding that the Nephilim-giants had purely human bodies, and are called men by the Bible, it makes sense that they were virile and also capable of having children. There is nothing that suggests the Nephilim-giants were sterile. As such, if a Nephilim-giant were to marry a human woman, the children would all also have demon-spirits, but human bodies. While the Nephilim-giants are all described by the Bible as male, their children with human women could have been male or female. As the Bible calls the Nephilim-giants “men” on the basis of their human bodies, there is every reason to think that their bodies were capable of the same things as that of any human male body, which includes the production of X-sperm, leading to female offspring.
The Bible does indicate in the OT that people sinned by making offerings to demons, and to other gods (Deut 32:16-17), and that people worshipped demons when they worshipped idols (1 Cor 10:19-20) and that one of these whom people made offerings to was known as “the queen of heaven”(Jer 44:25). As all of the angels in the Bible are referred to as male, including the fallen ones, there is some reason to think “the queen of heaven” was a female demon. If there are female demons (as is claimed about succubus) then this would imply there must have at one time been female demon-spirited Nephilim.
A daughter of a Nephilim-giant would herself have a demon-spirit (and at death become a demon) but if she had children, her children would have the same type of spirit as their father, not her. If their father was human, the children would be human. At the same time, the children could genetically inherit the traits of her body, including gigantism and a shortened lifespan. If she married a human man, with a human spirit, the children could inherit the genetic traits of gigantism or a shortened lifespan, while they would still have human-spirits.
After the flood people had about 400 year lifespans, which gradually decreased to 120 years over 11 generations. This indicates that it was not any external changes in the earth after the flood which caused decreased lifespans, but rather decreased lifespans must have been caused by internal genetic changes. (4) However, the Bible makes clear that these genetic changes were related to the Nephilim-giants by the placement of Gen 6:3, which is the verse that specifically talks about the issue of decreased lifespans, right after the fallen angels took wives, and right before the Nephilim-giants are first mentioned. So we know these Nephilim events are connected to the shortened lifespans of all humanity today, as the Bible indicates such.
The concept of Paternal Spiritual Lineage logically shows that a Nephilim-giant could have a human-spirit human-body granddaughter. And understanding of the hereditary genetic disorder of gigantism (such as FIPA) shows that such a granddaughter could be a carrier of the genes that cause gigantism, but not herself be a giant effected with the disorder. As such this human-granddaughter of a Nephilim, who herself had a Nephilim-daughter for her mother and a human father, could herself carry the genes for gigantism without being a giant herself. She also could be effected by genes causing a shortened lifespan, and pass these on to her human children, along with genes that cause gigantism.
As the first mention of a shortened lifespan is related to the Nephilim-giants, the fact that we all have shortened lifespans today indicates that this very scenario took place. The first mention of gigantism in the Bible is with the Nephilim-giants, and the fact that gigantism exists today also indicates this scenario took place. Gen 6:3 was spoken to the parents of the Nephilim, as the Bible indicates, about the Nephilim, as the Bible indicates by the placement of the verse. An understanding of paternal spiritual lineage and the human bodies of the Nephilim, is shown by the Bible in the case of both Adam and Jesus Christ. Therefore, the evidence for the scenario of a human grand-daughter of a Nephilim is the shortened lifespans and gigantism the Bible teaches occurred after the flood.

The Nephilim (continued?)
“But Noah found favor in the eyes of the LORD. These [are] the generations of Noah: Noah was a just man [and] perfect in his generations, [and] Noah walked with God.” Gen 6:8-9
The Bible specifies that Noah was “perfect in his generations”. This can refer to being spotless or unblemished in his lineage. Why does God specify this? It would make sense that God said this to make clear that Noah was completely uncorrupted in his lineage, both paternal and maternal, having no ancestors that were related to the Nephilim-giants in any way. Noah was the paternal ancestor of every human who would come after the flood, his sons and all their children, who all humanity would be replenished from.
However, it is not specified that Noah’s wife, sons, nor daughter-in-law were “perfect in their generations”. It is therefore possible that Noah’s wife (and therefore Noah’s sons) or daughters-in-law (and therefore his grandchildren), were bodily related to the Nephilim. According to the concept of Paternal Spiritual Lineage, it did not matter if Noah’s wife was in fact even a Nephilim-giant, because Noah’s sons and all their children would have human-spirits, because Noah had a perfect human lineage and a human-spirit.
But it seems far more likely that Noah’s wife or daughters-in-law were humans, but unfortunately one or all were descended from a human-granddaughter of a Nephilim-giant. This would mean that while the women on the ark were human, not even giants, they could still carry the genes for hereditary gigantism, as well as genes causing a shortened lifespan. It could be argued that besides the stated exception of Noah, that his wife and sons’ flesh had also been somewhat corrupted, as all flesh had been corrupted,
“And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted its way upon the earth.” (Gen 6:12)
The fact that giants existed after the flood, and that lifespans continued to decrease after the flood, shows that a woman (very likely herself human) related to a Nephilim-giant must have been on the Ark, and passed these genetic traits on to all humanity which followed after the flood. (Noah lived 950 years, but Shem only 600, this could be indicative that the woman with shortened-lifespan genes was in fact Noah’s wife.)
That we all only live at most 120 years today, combined with the concept of Paternal Spiritual Lineage, shows that all humanity had a human-granddaughter-of-a-Nephilim ancestor in their past. Yet, we are no less human for it, because the Nephilim-giants had human bodies, and we all are descended from Noah who had a human-spirit.
The giants that came after the flood, which are seen many time in the Bible, were human. They had human-spirits, and were no more related to the Nephilim than anyone else was after the flood. Everyone after the flood coming to live only 120 years shows this. The human-giants after the flood unfortunately just also expressed the rarer genetic problem of having gigantism, while the rest of humanity expressed the genetic shortened lifespan.
The main difference between the Nephilim-giants before the flood and the human-giants after the flood is that the human-giants after the flood seem to have been in poorer health.
Some secular scientists and also Christian creationists both seem to agree that the largest dinosaurs if they lived today would not be able to breathe or stand up fully, and therefore that the world seems to have been very different a long time ago (how long ago being the difference) and that the earth had higher atmospheric oxygen levels in the past, which allowed for these dinosaurs to be able to breathe and function with some normalcy.  These same conditions Christians attribute to the pre-flood world that allowed for the dinosaurs to breathe, and for huge winged ones to fly, also produced things such as gigantic animals and insects, as is found in the fossil record. (5,6,7) As such we know that the world before the flood was conducive to gigantic animals and their health. There is every reason to conclude the earth before the flood was more conducive to the health of Nephilim-giants and human-giants as well.
This may be how the Bible says of the Nephilim-giants, “the same became mighty men of old, men of renown”. These bodies with pituitary gigantism were able to function much better in the pre-flood world, and so were able to be “mighty men”. At the same time, they also had decreased lifespans. As such the gigantism and the shortened lifespan genes seem to not be directly tied together, but separate. All of humanity having shorter lifespans after the flood, while not being giants, shows that the two genetic issues were not exclusively tied together. The gigantism genes and the short-lifespan genes, while both coming from the Nephilim-giants, were not exclusively related. While the giants did live shorter lives than was usual in that time pre-flood, it is also clear that at first their gigantism was not a total hindrance to them, being called “mighty men”. However, after the flood and the change of atmospheric conditions, the gigantism seemed to produce even worse health problems for those with gigantism. And ultimately we can see that the shortened-lifespan genetics were not tied to gigantism genetics, as all of humanity has a shortened lifespan, but few have gigantism.
The human-giants after the flood did not have any atmospheric advantage, and there are indications they were in poor health, like those with gigantism today. For instance, one very plausible theory is that Goliath died by the stone hitting his head because of poor health and medical conditions which directly related to him having pituitary gigantism.
“And David put his hand into his bag and took from it a stone and slung it, and struck the Philistine on his forehead. And the stone sank into his forehead, so that he fell on his face to the ground. Thus David prevailed over the Philistine with a sling and a stone, and he struck the Philistine and killed him; but there was no sword in David’s hand.”
1 Sam 17:49-50
“Undoubtedly Goliath’s great size was due to acromegaly secondary to a pituitary macroadenoma. This pituitary adenoma was apparently large enough to induce visual field deficits by its pressure on the optic chiasm, which made Goliath unable to follow the young David as he circled him. The stone entered Goliath’s cranial vault through a markedly thinned frontal bone, which resulted from enlargement of the frontal paranasal sinus, a frequent feature of acromegaly. The stone lodged in Goliath’s enlarged pituitary and caused a pituitary hemorrhage, resulting in transtentorial herniation and death.”
– Dr. Stanley Sprecher, MD
The poor health of these giants could also be argued in that whole villages of giants were killed off by the Israelites without any noted difficulty. (Deut 3:1-11, Josh 11:21)
God had the Israelites kill off these giant tribes entirely (men, women, and children), and this was likely for one very understandable reason.
Using FIPA as a model, each successive generation has a younger onset for the illness. This means that what might start as acromegaly, with adult onset, in a few generations would be more likely to result in gigantism that begins in childhood. That is for those who do express the genes and have gigantism. At the same time, most people in the family are carriers who do not get the disorder, and some do not even carry it. In modern cases, an entire family or village of giants doesn’t happen. But there is a reason why.
It is very likely that the only way that you would get this genetic disorder to be so strongly reinforced as to have an entire tribes of giants, where every man, woman, and child has the genetic disorder, is by inbreeding. The scientific understanding of hereditary gigantism supports this assertion. (3,8) And we know that these people did practice inbreeding. God confirms these nations practiced inbreeding in Leviticus 18, and this is what it would take to get entire villages of giants, in which every man woman and child was a giant. For instance, FIPA is a dominant trait with only incomplete penetration, meaning it acts recessive in many ways, and so it would be almost impossible to get a whole village of giant people, except if the trait was reinforced through inbreeding, like the close inbreeding Lev 18 mentions, making the trait to show very dominantly.
These tribes of human-giants had been inbred enough so as to doom their own genetics and those of their children. Their children would have gigantism, and they also would spread gigantism to anyone who married someone from the tribe. This is also demonstrated in the case of the sons of the giant of Gath, these 4 brothers were also giants like their father. (1 Ch 20, 2 Sam 21)
“And yet again there was war at Gath, where was a man of [great] stature, whose fingers and toes [were] four and twenty, six [on each hand], and six [on each foot]: and he also was the son of the giant. But when he defied Israel, Jonathan the son of Shimea David’s brother slew him. These were born unto the giant in Gath; and they fell by the hand of David, and by the hand of his servants.” 1 Ch 20:6-8
This instance of the giant of Gath and his 4 giant sons shows a couple of things to be true. The first is that gigantism passes hereditarily among humans, and is not always caused by fallen angels. The second is that if one wished to debate this point, then logic would dictate that one would have to concede that either:
A. The Bible is not accurate when it uses the terms “father” and “son”, which could have terrible ramifications if this same assertion was applied to Jesus Christ.
B. Or if asserting that the giant of Gath was a “Nephilim” and he himself had sons, one would have to concede that the Nephilim before the flood were not sterile, and therefore could have had sons or daughters before the flood.
And so this gigantism was a human hereditary disorder that passed from one human to his four human sons. This is not how hereditary gigantism typically shows in families, and is highly unusual, which all suggests close inbreeding, as may the polydactylism.
Like a quarantine, to save much more of humanity from the genetic disorder of gigantism, God had these tribes of giant people to be killed. This was a mercy on any children they may have had, and future generations, as gigantism is a very painful, deforming and disabling genetic disorder. This also was protective against spreading this genetic disorder to all those peoples around them, including the Israelites. (Jdg 3:5-7)
That the giants after the flood were human-giants and not Nephilim-giants is confirmed in the Bible in Numbers13-14. This is the only time after the flood in which the word “Nephilim” is used, and the Bible makes clear that the statement made was a slander, a lie, and that those who told this lie were punished with death, as a result of the harm they caused with this lie.
“And they brought up a slander of the land which they had searched unto the children of Israel, saying, The land, through which we have gone to search it, [is] a land that eateth up the inhabitants thereof; and all the people that we saw in it [are] men of a great stature. And there we saw the giants, the sons of Anak, [which come] of the giants: and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight.”  Num 13:32-33
“And the men, which Moses sent to search the land, who returned, and made all the congregation to murmur against him, by bringing up a slander upon the land, Even those men that did bring up the evil slander upon the land, died by plague before the LORD.” Num 14:36-37
The book “Alien Intrusion: UFOs and the Evolution Connection” by Gary Bates is where I first saw this pointed out, and he puts it this way:
“…The descendents of Anak (the Anakim/Anakites) were obviously a group of large people. However, in verse 28 the spies also reported that many of the other people in the land were “strong.” There are several other passages that refer to the Anakim as a powerful group of people (Deut. 9:2 for example), but verse 33 in Numbers 13 is the only passage that suggests any Anakite relationship to the Nephilim. Once again, it should be remembered that these Anakim were descendents of post-Flood people. They could not be descended from the pre-Flood Nephilim. Chapter 10 of Genesis records the “Table of Nations”; that is, the descendents of Noah’s sons, and there is no mention of Anak or the Nephilim, post-Flood.
“It should be noted that the spies brought back a bad, or “evil” (Hebrew dibbah, “to slander, whisper, or defame”) report. That report included a parenthetic insertion that the large people known as the sons of Anak were descended from the Nephilim. The NIV simply puts it as: We saw the Nephilim there (the descendents of Anak come from the Nephilim)… (Num. 13.33).
“At first reading, this may seem like a factual account, but it is part of the quoted false report of the spies. Of the 12 spies, only Joshua and Caleb, trusting God, were keen to enter and take possession of the land; the other 10 did not want to. Because of the false report, the whole nation was too terrified to enter the Promised Land, and they turned against Moses for bringing them there. God responded:
The Lord said to Moses, ‘How long will these people treat me with contempt?… I will strike them down with a plague and destroy them’ (Num. 14:11).”
“How can we be sure that it was a false report? To start with, God intended to strike down all of the people with a plague for their unbelief, but Moses interceded on their behalf. However, there were some that were not going to escape God’s justice. Why? Because they brought back an untruthful report. Numbers 14:36-37 says:
“‘Now the men whom Moses sent to spy out the land, who returned and made all the congregation complain against him by bringing a bad report of the land, those very men who brought the evil report about the land, died by the plague before the Lord’ (New King James Version).’”
“Some Christians have actually added to the false account of the Nephilim in the Promised Land. They say that during the time that the children of Israel wandered in the desert (38 years), fallen angels were once again cohabiting with women to produce more Nephilim as part of a satanic strategy to prevent the Hebrews entering the land. This is unlikely because, although they encountered the Anakim, they defeated them, as well as many others inhabiting tribes. When they eventually entered the land of Canaan, there was no mention of the Nephilim or encounters with them. Surely, among the descriptions of all the battles that ensued, encounters with Nephilim would have been mentioned if they occurred. And it should be remembered, according to the fallen angel view, the original angels who stepped out of line in this manner were now in chains in Tartarus…”
Gary Bates, Alien Intrusion: UFOs and the Evolution Connection, pg. 363-364
To make perfectly clear, a slander is a lie. The word used here for slander is “dibbah” and means “slander, calumny” according to the Gesenius’s Lexicon. It is translated as “slander” 4 times, “infamy” 2 times and “evil report” 3 times in the KJV. The word “slander” means a “malicious false or defamatory statement”, “calumny” means “a false and malicious statement designed to injure the reputation”. A slander is a lie.
Numbers makes clear that these men brought a slander against the land in particular by: “saying… there we saw the giants (Nephilim), the sons of Anak, of the giants (Nephilim)”. This is the slanderous, lying statement in question. It is pointed out in particular in Num 13:32 that this statement was slander, a lie, and not true, before the Bible recounts the false statement. Then afterwards, in Num 14, it is made clear that the men who lied in this particular statement died by plague before God. As such, God punished these men for their lie about there being Nephilim in the land, by them dying before Him by a plague. The reason this punishment was so severe was because as a result of this lie, the people of Israel refused to take the land in battle, refusing to obey God. And they then were punished by having to wander in the desert for 40 years.
Other than this singular instance of a slander, a lie, being told, no mention is made of Nephilim after the flood, and besides Gen 6 and Num 13 the word Nephilim is not used anywhere else in the Bible. The interbreeding of the “sons of God” and women is not recorded to have occurred again after the flood. As the Bible had no problem mentioning this interbreeding the first time, God surely would have mentioned if the same events happened again, in His consistency. Also the “sons of God” who begat the Nephilim-giants were imprisoned in Tartaros (the Abyss) until the judgment for their crime.
In Jude 1 and 2 Pet 2 these “sons of God” are described as angels who sinned by leaving their own domain, are compared to those who “gave themselves over to fornication, going after strange flesh”, and who are now imprisoned in Tartaros. Their actions defined them as and made them become fallen angels.
“And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day. Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.” Jude 1:6-7
“For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast [them] down to hell (Tartaros), and delivered [them] into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment; And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth [person], a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly; And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned [them] with an overthrow, making [them] an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly” 2 Pet 2:4-6
The chronology in 2 Pet 2:4-6 places the time of their sin to be immediately before the flood, so we can know these are one and the same fallen angels who are referred to in Gen 6:1-4. And we know that these fallen angels in particular who committed this sin are now bound and imprisoned in Tartaros as the sentence for their crime. (Though others are not imprisoned, who did not commit this particular crime, see Rev 12, Luke 4, Eph 6:12.)
As such it makes the most sense that no other fallen angels would attempt to repeat this crime, and face the same punishment. As God is consistent, it makes sense they would face the same punishment. So it seems safe to say no other fallen angel would commit this crime, because of the consequences, and this is consistent with God not describing any repeat of this crime after the flood.
The Bible makes clear that the human-giants after the flood were not Nephilim, by saying those that called them so were slanderers in Num 13-14. Both the presence of human-giants after the flood and the shortened lifespans after the flood can be tied to the Nephilim that lived before the flood, through a woman on the Ark, without any resumed fallen-angelic interbreeding after the flood. The evidence for this theory is seen in that all of humanity soon had lifespan shortened to 120 years, and Gen 6:3 shows the prophecy of a shortened lifespan as being related to the fallen angels taking wives, and their offspring.
There is nothing in the Bible that indicates that there will ever be any more Nephilim born. The scriptures sometimes used to argue this fallacy are Matt 24 and Dan 2, but this can only be accomplished by ignoring the obvious meanings of the verses, ignoring their context, and twisting their meaning, and the meanings of the words in these verses.
With a straightforward interpretation, taking into account context of the passage, meanings of the words, etc, neither of these passages hint at there being any more Nephilim in the future of the world, according to Bible prophecy. You can examine these passages of prophecy, and the conclusion that they do not include any prophecy of a resurgence of Nephilim, at the links on the menu.

While side issues, I want to address a couple things:
1. In Gen 6:4 “and also after that” or “afterward” has a couple of possible explanations that the text will allow for, and neither one references to after the flood. The first is that the taking of wives and interbreeding began “when men began to multiply on the face of the earth and daughters were born unto them” which was about 1000 years before Noah was even born. In context, “afterward” refers to the time when the marrying and interbreeding started, some 1000 years before Noah was born, and into the time of Noah
