Supporters of the Anunnaki in the Bible theory argue that certain biblical stories, characters, and concepts may have been influenced by the myths and legends surrounding the Anunnaki. They point out similarities between certain biblical figures
The mention of the Anunnaki in the context of the Bible has generated considerable curiosity and controversy. These ancient Mesopotamian deities have been the subject of numerous speculative theories and claims, often intertwining their presence with biblical narratives. In this blog post, we will explore the concept of the Anunnaki in the Bible and discern fact from fiction.
Churchgists has provided a well detailed information on the aforementioned and so much more. You will find these details very useful in whatever course you intend to use them for.
Anunnaki in the Bible: Separating Fact from Fiction
According to the Ancient Astronaut Hypothesis, Mankind was created by the Anunnaki Ancient Astronaut Gods around 400 000 years ago by fusing the DNA of Homo Habilis with Anunnaki DNA to create the first Adama Prototype following the Igigi Rebellion.
The Igigi had previously been tasked to undertake the Gold-mining work for the Anunnaki Gods, but the labour proved too much and they rebelled on account of their hard toil.
The solution that was proposed by the Anunnaki Alien God Enki was to create a genetic hybrid Slave to take over the work of the Igigi which resulted in the creation of humans.
What Contributions Did The Anunnaki Of Sumeria Make?
The Sumerian Anunnaki Ancient Astronaut Gods are the ‘Elohim’ and ‘Nephilim’ of the Hebrew Bible, and they administered and developed the Earth through a combination of technical prowess in matters such as Building, Astronomy, Construction, Writing and managed the population through a sophisticated system of Propaganda which now forms the basis of modern Religion.
The origins of Civilization and Religion can thus be traced to the Sumerian Anunnaki Gods establishment of Civilization on Earth and the need to create a Control System to administer the entire Project.
Who Were the Anunnaki?:
The Anunnaki are a group of deities found in ancient Mesopotamian mythology, particularly Sumerian and Akkadian texts. They were considered divine beings who played various roles in the cosmic order, including governance of the natural world, the creation of humanity, and interactions with humans.
Anunnaki and Biblical Connections:
- Creation of Humanity: Some theories suggest a connection between the Anunnaki and the biblical creation story in Genesis. It’s important to note that the biblical creation account is unique to the Abrahamic religions and differs from Mesopotamian creation myths. The Anunnaki were not explicitly mentioned in the Bible as creators of humanity.
- The Nephilim: The term “Nephilim” is mentioned in the Bible, specifically in Genesis 6:4, and has been linked to the Anunnaki by some. However, the Bible does not explicitly connect the Nephilim to the Anunnaki. The identity and nature of the Nephilim remain a subject of debate among biblical scholars.
Fact vs. Fiction:
While there may be some parallels between certain aspects of Mesopotamian mythology and biblical narratives, it’s crucial to differentiate between historical and religious texts.
- Biblical Perspective: The Bible is a sacred text for millions of people worldwide and holds its own unique theological and historical significance. Its accounts, including the creation of humanity and the Nephilim, are part of religious belief systems and not necessarily compatible with other mythological traditions.
- Ancient Mythology: Mesopotamian myths, including those involving the Anunnaki, are a rich part of ancient history and provide valuable insights into the beliefs and cultures of the time. They should be appreciated within their own cultural context.
The use of ancient myths and narratives to interpret religious texts is a complex endeavor. While it can lead to insightful comparisons and discussions, it’s important to approach such interpretations with sensitivity to the diverse religious beliefs and the unique theological perspectives of each tradition.
Anunnaki – Gods of Sumeria Or fallen Angels
I found it very interesting that the earliest civilisation known to us in the historical records, the Sumerians, have a religion that talks of these Anunnaki coming down from heaven and teaching them all wonders of things.
I found a correlation between fallen angels and the Anunnaki. It’s rather coincidental that our faith teaches of a war that ended in one third of the angels falling to earth, whilst in our history we have our first civilisation who are taught by Gods who “came” from the heavens. Perhaps they did not so much come from heaven as they where kicked out.
Now after reading numbers(13: 28) in the scripture I came across the descendants of Anak who where described as giants. The word Anak itself sounded eerily similar to the Anunnaki which I had recently been studying and so it got me thinking.
After further reading I came across Numbers 13:33 (In parenthesis though of course) in which I was informed that the Anakites come from the nephilim! So, if we take this all together we can see that;
We have the war of heaven a long time ago and then we also have beings coming from the sky to be worshipped by the Sumerians as Gods; also a long time ago. We know the Sumerians called these Gods anunnaki. Is it such a stretch to theorise that the fallen angels of our faith are the “so called Gods” coming to the Sumerians? We know God’s hate for Babylon and Babylon is really just another form of the Sumerian culture which came after Sumaria in the same location.
Then we read in the Bible of a people descendant from anuk who are giant and strong who come from the nephilim: Numbers 13:32.
Now of course I don’t have to mention that the nephilim are also called the sons of God, and the sons of God is another word for angels.
So it is clear that not only in language is their a similarity between the word anak or anakites and the anunnaki. But also in the relationship between the Anakites being descendants of nephelim and the anakites being heavenly beings.
I think it’s probably that like in the Bible the anakites are descendent from angels, so to are the anunnaki angels who have fallen from heaven.
Interesting facts. The Anunnaki interestingly has been said to mean princely offspring. The devil is known as the prince of the sky.
The concept of the Anunnaki in the Bible is a topic that has sparked curiosity and debate, but it’s essential to differentiate between religious texts and ancient mythology. While some parallels may exist, they do not necessarily imply a direct connection between the two. Understanding the historical, cultural, and religious contexts of these narratives can lead to a more informed and respectful discourse.
