War of the Seeds: Sons of God in Genesis and Job—A Covenantal Exegetical Look

This work analyzes a subject of some controversy in light of sound hermeneutics and exegesis while building upon biblical truths that support this undertaking. This is not a simple academic exercise but rather instills in believers a sense of encouragement whereby we can arrive at biblical truths based on accurately handling the Word of God while taking a pastoral approach in applying these truths.The subject at hand is the “sons of God” in Genesis 6 and the book of Job, together with NT revelation that reveals who these “sons of God” are in both Testaments.

Determining who these sons of God are in Genesis 6 and Job is more than simply winning an argument. It is at the crux of the spiritual war that began in the garden and continues today but can be misunderstood and therefore undermined by improper biblical approaches.This manuscript helps to set the stage for a proper redemptive historical look into the people of God and catapults the believer into a future hope that God promised to the patriarchs through a coming Messiah whose lineage in Luke 3:23 states, “Jesus Himself was about thirty years of age, being, as was supposed, the son of Joseph,” and ends back in the garden in verse 38, “the son of Enosh, the son of Seth, the son of Adam, the son of God.”

This is an instructive biblical account of the war that was precipitated between the two seeds that God set at odds with each other after Satan’s temptation and Adam’s rebellion. And as I move through the biblical particulars, the story finally ends as a “happily ever after” description of what God accomplishes through His victorious Son with His people ultimately ruling and reigning with Him on the new earth among the new heavens.
