Quote:   “The Nephilim were on the earth in those days—and also afterward—when the sons of God went to the daughters of humans and had children by them. They were the heroes of old, men of renown.”        

So the half-elven of Middle Earth are descended from Thingol and Melian, and then Luthien and Beren and Thor and Idril. I wonder if they are the Middle Earth version of the Nephilim?

Interesting comparison. I'm not sure Tolkien had that in mind but you never know. He was well-read in Biblical matters. It's hard to imagine him not thinking about such things.
