When archaeologists uncovered hundreds of old scrolls over 50 years ago, they made one of the most significant archaeological discoveries of the century. They discovered The Book of Giants, a book about the Nephilim and their annihilation.
Over half a century ago, one of the most important archaeological discoveries was made at the Qumran Caves.
Thousands of historic scrolls were uncovered among the antiquities, providing invaluable insight into our past. Moreover, many of these scrolls were essential in completing a gap in Earth’s history.
In addition to the countless scrolls, archaeologists were surprised to find a rare and uncommon text: an ancient scroll depicting the destruction of the ancient Nephilim, Ancient Code reported.
Called the Book of Giants, it is a book that describes the animals who once roamed our globe and how they were extinguished.
But who are the Nephilim, exactly? These beings, according to orthodox historians, are legendary creatures that never existed on our planet.
The truth about the Nephilim, however, may be more mysterious than we ever anticipated.
Starting at the beginning, we must recognize that the term “Nephilim” is still not fully recognized in the twenty-first century.
Scholars have postulated a variety of etymologies over the years, including “The Fallen,” “Apostates,” and even “those that cause others to fall.”
Regardless of their name or meaning, the enigmatic Nephilim have long been thought to be the huge beings who once inhabited our world.
The Nephilim are mentioned in several ancient documents. The Book of Genesis is one of those manuscripts that portrays these enigmatic entities.
The majority of today’s knowledge comes from the apocryphal Book of Enoch. Noah’s great-grandfather is said to have created this antique art.
Enoch is a historical figure who is also one of the most enigmatic characters in the Bible’s Book of Genesis.
According to the Book of Genesis, Enoch lived for an astounding 265 years. Then, finally, he was brought before God and: “he walked with God, and he was no more; for God took him.”
During this era, our world is claimed to have been inhabited by ‘Angels,’ who engaged with mortal people for years before interbreeding with the “daughters of men,” resulting in the development of a race of beings described as extraordinarily strong, known as giant hybrids, or the Nephilim.
However, the Book of Genesis and the ancient scrolls discovered in the Qumran Caves tell different stories regarding the Nephilim. The Book of Giants, which is unfinished, provides a new take on the Nephilim.
According to the ancient scripture, the Giants, also known as the Nephilim, realized that they were on the verge of being destroyed because of their violent ways. So they requested that Enoch speak to God on their behalf.
The ancient writings describe how the Nephilim existed on Earth, causing havoc and ruin. They began to have prophetic Armageddon nightmares at one time in history when fear gripped their hearts.
Mahway, the Titan son of the angel Barakel, is said to have been the first of the Nephilim to have prophetic dreams. A large tablet was submerged in water in his dream, and when it surfaced, only three names remained. This is thought to represent the Great Flood and the subsequent devastation it will cause.
2Q26 [ . . . ] they drenched the tablet in the wa[ter . . . ] 2[ . . . ] the waters went up over the [tablet . . . ] 3[ . . . ] they lifted out the tablet from the water of [ . . . ] (Source)
The Nephilim were perplexed by the meanings of their dreams, and they debated what Mahway had dreamed for a long time. They were, however, unsuccessful in deciphering the message. Soon after, two other Giants, Ohya and Hahya, sons of the fallen angel Shemyaza, began having identical dreams: Ohya and Hahya dreamed of a tree uprooted entirely except for three roots.
Thereupon two of them had dreams 4and the sleep of their eye, fled from them, and they arose and came to [ . . . and told] their dreams, and said in the assembly of [their comrades] the monsters 6[ . . . In] my dream I was watching this very night 7[and there was a garden . . . ] gardeners and they were watering 8[ . . . two hundred trees and] large shoots came out of their root 9[ . . . ] all the water, and the fire burned all 10[the garden . . . ] They found the giants to tell them 11[the dream . . . ] (Source)
When the Giants realized that their dreams were prophetic, they sought Enoch’s assistance.
[ . . . to Enoch] the noted scribe, and he will interpret for us 12the dream. Thereupon his fellow Ohya declared and said to the Giants, 13I too had a dream this night, O giants, and, behold, the Ruler of Heaven came down to earth 14[ . . . ] and such is the end of the dream.
[Thereupon] all the giants [and monsters! grew afraid 15and called Mahway. He came to them and the Giants pleaded with him and sent him to Enoch 16[the noted scribe]. They said to him, Go [ . . . ] to you that 17[ . . . ] you have heard his voice. And he said to him, He wil1 [ . . . and] interpret the dreams [ . . . ] Col. 3 3[ . . . ] how long the Giants have to live. [ . . . ] (Source)
However, because Enoch was no longer on Earth, the Nephilim dispatched one of them on a cosmic journey. Mahway approaches Enoch after his cosmic adventure and makes his plea.
Notice the strange description:
[ . . . he mounted up in the air] 41ike strong winds, and flew with his hands like ea[gles . . . he left behind] 5the inhabited world and passed over Desolation, the great desert [ . . . ] 6and Enoch saw him and hailed him, and Mahway said to him [ . . . ] 7hither and thither a second time to Mahway [ . . . The Giants away 8your words, and all the monsters of the earth. If [ . . . ] has been carried [ . . . ] 9from the days of [ . . . ] their [ . . . ] and they will be added [ . . . ] 10[ . . . ] we would know from you their meaning [ . . . ] 11[ . . . two hundred tr]ees that from heaven [came down . . . ] (Source)
If we carefully examine the above paragraph, we can infer the following strange interpretation: He mounted up in the air—with his hands like eagles—he left behind the inhabited world and passed over Desolation.“
Many people think that the journey recounted in this ancient document leads to space, leaving the world behind … detailing the rest of the planet as the traveler was departing Earth’s atmosphere.
All of this can be boiled down to our own personal interpretation, which is ultimately based on our values.
Returning to the Book of Giants, Enoch sends Mahway back to Earth with only the promise of speaking to God on behalf of the Nephilim.
The Giants, on the other hand, did not receive good news from the tablets Enoch sent as a response:4Q530 Frag. 2 The scribe [Enoch . . . ] 2[ . . . ] 3a copy of the second tablet that [Epoch] se[nt . . . ] 4in the very handwriting of Enoch the noted scribe [ . . .
