“This is a surprise of sort after 23 years of excavations at the site.”
He added: “Perhaps, the legends of giants among the Philistines, and in particular from Gath – Goliath and others – might have arisen, among other reasons, from seeing the impressive monumental remains of the city in the centuries after its destruction.”
The building blocks themselves are also bigger, measuring up to two metres (6.5ft) in the ‘Goliath’ layer and only half a metre (1.6ft) in later layers.
Commentary & Analysis
L. A. Marzulli
Most of us know and are very familiar with the story of David and Goliath. David slew the Philistine GIANT Goliath. According to some Goliath really wasn’t that big, perhaps only 6.5 feet in height. Others insist that Goliath was NOT a Nephilim giant and in fact there were no Nephilim at all after the flood!
In my opinion Goliath reflects the ongoing SEED WAR that we first hear about in the Genesis 3:15 account. He is the offspring of the serpent. He is, in my opinion, a Nephilim and I would put him at well over nine feet.
This recent archaeological find in the ancient city of Gath is mind-blowing. Here’s why. The blocks of the older city are bigger and measure up to 6 1/2 feet in length. Compare this with the newer blocks which are essentially head-size stones about 1 1/2 feet.
So how and why did these ancient builders use these larger stones? They used them because they were capable of moving them. It wasn’t hard and I would add that they had giants to do it!
In our best selling book, On the Trail of the Nephilim, we combined Volumes 1 & 2 as well as our DNA evidence on the Paracas Elongated Skulls.
Folks, giants once roamed the land right here in the United States and our new film series—in which there are now three installments—delve into this. Why am I so obsessed with this you may ask? Because it points back to the validity of the Biblical Prophetic Narrative!
L.A. Marzulli joins host Leah Tillock with the latest in his series, “On the Trail of the Nephilim” episode 3, “Voices From the Other Side,” with a recap of episode 1 & 2 also. (From a Biblical perspective).
I appeared on Coast to Coast with George Noory last night. We discussed my new series, On the Trail of the Nephilim, and more specifically the second offering in this episodic series, Mathematical Mysteries of the Moundbuilder!
George was, as always, a gracious and informed host. The two hours flew by but in that interim, we discussed in depth some of the mathematical mysteries of the enigmatic Moundbuilders. Here are some of the highlights!
Are you aware that there is advanced mathematics embedded in these earthworks? We see startling evidence of Trigonometry, advanced geometry and surveying techniques!
Many of the sites are built on an 18.5 year LUNAR Cycle! In order to achieve this one must track and record the position of the moon every night for 18.5 years and record its position! How was this accomplished?
The interior moat that is inside the Great Circle Mound is for all practical purposes, dead-level! How was this achieved in the ancient world? The Great Circle Mound is 1250 in diameter.
The Octagon Mound is an irregular Octagon meaning that it’s sides are not equal. It is so large that one could fit the Great Pyramid of Egypt inside it with room to spare. How did the builders lay this out with such precision?
Many of these sites like the Octagon Mound as well as the Serpent Mound can only be seen from the air… Who is the Prince of the Power of the Air?
I could go on but I think you get the point.
The On the Trail of the Nephilim series is episodic and each film is a stand-alone film.
Episode 3, Secrets of the Supernatural – Voices From the Other Side is almost complete and will be available in early July!
