Poor Scholarship: Bruce Waltke
So I’m sitting in the library doing some research and I actually just read this from Genesis: A Commentary by Bruce K. Waltke.
The best solution is to combine the “angelic” interpretation with the “divine king” view. The tyrants were demon possessed. Gispen avers: “The text presents us with men who are controlled by fallen angels.”
Hmmmm… of course he is talking about Gen 6:1-4, but I think it ironic that he loses his job for what he writes on Gen 1, however, this didn’t get red-flagged.
The use of the adjective ‘best’ here, is perhaps the ‘best’ example of how it can be used improperly!
I thought the most ridiculous things on that passage had been written in the 20th century. Apparently not.
