Different Bible commentators have offered various explanations for the identity of the Nephilim mentioned in the verse cited above.[10] In an article in Answer magazine, Christian apologist Tim Chaffey mentions at least three different positions regarding the identity and origin of these characters.

giants in the bible

The first known myth related to giants is that of Gilgamesh, belonging to Sumerian mythology. It was said that he reached a height in cubits equivalent to 5.60 m, being a case of height perceived positively, to enhance his value as a hero and king.

Greek mythology already spoke of the Hyperboreans, giants who lived beyond the northern winds and within their myths we find great references to giants, among them the Titans, including Prometheus, who gave fire to men.

Also giants were the Cyclops of Homer’s Odyssey, of which the most famous was Polyphemus, who captured the men commanded by Odysseus in order to devour them. Polyphemus is defeated by the intelligence of the Greek, in an unequal confrontation.

The Amorites are mentioned more than 80 times in the Scriptures, and at first, some were allied with Abraham (Genesis 14:13). These were descendants of Canaan, Noah’s grandson (Genesis 10:15-16). Although the Bible does not provide such information, Josephus, the Jewish general who became a historian, names their ancestors as Amorites.1 While the Amorites are sometimes mentioned in the same context as other giants, they are specifically described as giants in the minor prophets.

Through Amos, God clearly stated that the Amorites were generally very tall and strong. Some may downplay the importance of the description of the Amorites in this passage, since these verses employ figurative language, but there are some good reasons to take this passage at face value.2

The Emites had lived there in the past, a people as great, numerous, and tall as the children of the Anakim. They too were considered giants [Hebrew Rephaim], like the Anakim, but the Moabites call them Emites (Deuteronomy 2:10-11).
