Michael Heiser is someone is someone with whom I deeply resonate. He explains that his interest in ancient near eastern cultures and his devout faith lead him to a point where he felt it was necessary to embrace the ancient texts in their cultural context, which was resoundingly foreign to most of the Christian faith. In particular, he focuses heavily on the meanings of words and their grammar in the ancient languages.
Having rejected the fundamentalist view of the creation narrative, and embraced a fully supernatural view of the Genesis 6 narrative about the sons of god having children with women that lead to giants, Heiser is surprisingly non-commital in what this means. Is this a literal or a figurative retelling of stories the people knew in the day? Heiser often points out that passages in scripture would not have been taken in the literal sense a lot of us like to think today, and instead would have been viewed through a much larger theological lens. Essentially, "inspiration" of Scripture in the past meant something drastically different than most Christians think today.
Michael is a guest on several dramatic shows about the "Ancient Aliens" phenomena and loves debunking the wilder interpretations of ancient texts.
