In toto, this series (which you can find here when all segments are posted) will review claims by Chuck Missler, Rob Skiba, Patrick Heron, Tom Horn, LA Marzulli, S. Douglas Woodward, Anthony Patch, Josh Peck, and Gonzo Shimura.
Numbers 13:33 is actually the mother of all (of two) Nephilim verses since it is most often appealed to in order to (mis) interpret the Genesis verse.

On Sep 24, 2019 AD, an online search for “Nephilim” yielded “6,770,000 results.”

There are only two verses that refer to “Nephilim” in the Bible—no, I am not falling into the trap of not knowing this fact due to restricting myself to the vague, generic, subjective, and un-biblical English term “giants.”
We should not chase the vague, generic, subjective and un-biblical English word “giants” around a Hebrew Bible. The problem is that, sadly, some pseudo-translate both “Nephilim” and “Rephaim” as “giants” which causes confusion. Yet, the Nephilim were strictly pre-flood hybrids, the Rephaim were strictly post-flood humans and there is no relation between them.

The verses state:
“There were giants [Nephilim] 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” (Genesis 6:4).
“And there we saw the giants [Nephilim], the sons of Anak, which come of the giants [Nephilim]: and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight” (Numbers 13:33).
The Numbers verse is actually the mother of all (of two) Nephilim verses since it is most often appealed to in order to (mis) interpret the Genesis verse.

I thought to review how some of the neo-pop-researchers of Nephilim and “giants” read, interpret and apply the Numbers verse.
Note that I have been referring to “verse” which is a manmade invention which has had tragic results since they break up complete thoughts into thought fragments and has assisted in people taking texts out of context to make pretexts for prooftexts.
