In the second lesson in our series exploring spiritual warfare, we take a look at a passage which has been problematic or at least strange for biblical interpreters - the origin of some unusually large people called the Nephilim in Genesis 6. And they actually show up again in and around the land of Canaan when it’s time for the Conquest of the land. So where did these giant people come from? Why are they targeted in the Conquest of Canaan? And what does all this have to do with war in the heavenly realm?
As part of our series of seeing Jesus in every book of the Bible, we see some connections in the very name and mission of Joshua...as well as in a fascinating scene involving a "Commander of the LORD's Host."
As part of our Faith Challenge series, we examine the Conquest of Canaan by the Israelites to see if it constitutes genocide or ethnic cleansing, as some critics of the character of God accuse.
