I was privileged recently to have been interviewed by Derek Gilbert on his program A VIEW FROM THE BUNKER.
Between his knowledge and my own (both of us have researched the subject matter of NIMROD intensely), we addressed the many controversial matters of the identity of Nimrod, his supposed consort SemiRamis, his role if any at the Tower of Babel Event, how he was killed, and whether or not he truly was the prototype for the infamous figure we know as THE ANTICHRIST. We spoke for just over an hour on the subject. I received a number of compliments from … Read More
The Book of Jasher provides almost all the details about the Tower of Babel that believers in the Bible hold to be true. And it only gets 10.7% right. Consequently, most of what we believe about Babel is without biblical support. The reader should therefore ask, “So what does the Bible really teach?”
THE DEBATE OVER THE LIFE OF NIMROD IS SETTLED IN PART BY LOOKING AT THE VARIATIONS IN THE ACCOUNTS REGARDING HIS DEATH.

You will see that while Nimrod was truly the world’s first Emperor, he was not likely the leader of the rebellion at Babel. Enjoy!
No doubt, one of the most intriguing characters in the Old Testament is Nimrod, son of Cush, and grandson of Ham. His name often comes up as the archetype of the Antichrist. It turns out that when we dig into the story surrounding Nimrod, there is much more we can say about his importance than just speculating he is the figure who appears again in “the last days” as the Antichrist (“who was, is not, but will be again,” Revelation 17:8). The following post is drawn from REBOOTING THE BIBLE, PART 2, Chapter 4.
