Mighty Men Who Were Real Life Hercules


According to Greek mythology, Hercules was the son of the chief god Zeus and the mortal woman Alcmene. Using his supernatural strength to rescue others, he became a hero. Some people believe he was a real man who actually came to exist through the union of a god with a mortal woman. In other words, there was a real life Hercules. Does that sound too far-fetched? Not to those who believe the Scriptures of the Holy Bible. Yes. God's Word speaks of divine beings who married and sired children with mortal women. Those children became mighty men of supernatural strength. We might even call them real life Hercules. Genesis 6:1-2, 4 says, "It came to pass when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, that the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair. And they took them wives of all which they chose. There were giants in the earth in those days, and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men. And they bare children to them. the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown."

It is with good reason that many, including Christians, believe "sons of God" refers to the angelic beings who came from heaven. Those beings, having supernatural powers, were gods...divine beings with the power of metamorphosis. This means they had the power to shape-shift into men, marry women, and have children with their mortal wives. Of course the children would be demi-gods, giants and men of supernatural strength. Hercules fits that description. His father was Zeus, a god. His mother was a mortal woman (a daughter of men). Hercules had supernatural strength, and became renown. Read our eye-opening articles on the true identity of the sons of God and the giants in Genesis as well as the very real and frightening power of metamorphosis. Every statement is fully backed by biblical scripture. But now, back to our topic of real life Hercules.

Real Life Hercules in King David's Army

In the Old Testament passage of 2 Samuel, chapter 23, beginning at verse 8, we read of the mighty men of king David's army. While there were 37 of them in total, only three became men of renown. Those three men are Joseb-basebet the Tachmonite, Adino the Eznite and Eleazar the son of Dodo the Ahohite. Why do we compare them to Hercules? Why do we say they might be thought of as real life Hercules?

We read, "The Tachmonite that sat in the seat, chief among the captains; the same was Adino the Eznite. He lifted up his spear against eight hundred whom he slew at one time" (S Sam. 23:8).

Imagine one man killing eight hundred with a spear in one day! It is no wonder he became famous. If we continue reading this 23rd chapter in Second Samuel, we learn of other feats the mighty men in David's army accomplished. Should we say these mighty men and real life Hercules possessed supernatural strength? Yes, we might say that. However, let us remember that they were NOT demi-gods like the Hercules of Greek mythology was. The mighty men of David's army were mere mortals to whom the Lord God of Israel endowed with unbelievable bravery, supernatural strength--at least during war--and incredible stamina. As we read and study what the Bible says about king David and his army, we learn that God blessed the king with those thirty-seven mighty men who served in war. Again, there is no myth or legend that surrounds them. Their fathers were not gods or "sons of God" who sired them with mortal women. Like Hercules, however, their feats were accomplished through the intervention of God. Divine power was at work in both cases. However, unlike Hercules who received his supernatural strength from Zeus--an idol, and therefore a demon--the mighty men of David's army received their strength from the Lord...the God above all gods, and the only one who can truthfully say, "I am the first and I am the last. And beside me there is no God" (Isaiah 44:6.)
