    Slide 123 - Sequence of Events?

    • One of the elements adding to the difficulty in identifying these messengers, is the manner in which Peter has sequenced his account. He places these "angels that sinned" first in his story, followed by the story of Noah and then Lot. This sequence would suggest that we place the incident into the period between the Creation and the Flood.

    • Both Peter and Jude mention that these messengers were delivered to be reserved in chains and in darkness for judgment.

It is appropriately linked with these men who were swallowed alive into a very unusual tomb, deep in the earth.

    • Genesis 6 King James Version (KJV)
    • 6 And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them,
    • 2 That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.
    • 3 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.
  132. Who were the sons of God

    Slide 137 - Who were the sons of God

    • the “sons of God” refers to the descendents of Seth, while the “daughters of men” refers to the descendents of Cain. In other words, the righteous line of Seth intermarried with the unrighteous line of Cain resulting in the corruption of society.
    • First, several statements in Genesis about Seth’s descendants indicate that “sons of God” applies to them: they “began to call upon the name of the Lord” (4:26), “walked with God” (5:24), and “found favor in the eyes of the Lord” (6:8).
    • Second, Genesis 5:1–3 restates that Adam was created in God’s image and that Seth was begotten in Adam’s image. The implication is that the line of Adam through Seth constitutes the sons of God.
    • Third, the line of Cain is pictured in exactly the opposite light. Cain is driven out from the presence of God. Lamech, a descendent of Cain, takes two wives, contrary to the standard established in the garden. When Cain murders his brother, God confronts him with his deed; yet, when Lamech commits murder, the absence of God is painfully obvious. Cain laments that his punishment is too great to bear, but Lamech boasts that he is able to take care of himself — he doesn’t need God’s protection. The primary characterization of Cain’s line is that they were becoming increasingly separated from God.
    • Fourth, the writer of Genesis states that the sons of God saw that the daughters of humankind were “beautiful” (Heb. tob). This connects the daughters of humankind in 6:2 with chapter 4. There, in the genealogy of Cain, the sons of Lamech are named and something is said about each one’s impact on society; for example, Tubal-cain was the forger of all implements of bronze and iron. Tubal-cain’s sister, Naamah, is named, but nothing is said about her. This should make the reader wonder why she was mentioned at all, especially since women were viewed as lower-class citizens. Interestingly, her name means “beautiful.” This is not the same word used in 6:2, but we have already seen that passages do not need to use the same terms to be parallel.
  133. Sons of God before the LordJob 1st Chapter

    Slide 138 - Sons of God before the LordJob 1st Chapter

    • In Hosea 2:1 we find the following description of the sons of Israel: You are the sons of the living God. Here the phrase sons of God definitely refers to humans, not angels. Deuteronomy 14:1 reads You are the sons of the Lord your God. Again another reference of the sons of God to humans. God also calls Israel His son. When Israel was a youth I loved him and out of Egypt I called My son (Hosea 11:1). Isaiah 43:6 The Lord, speaking of Israel says to the north, Bring My sons from afar.
