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.

THE DEBATE OVER THE LIFE OF NIMROD IS SETTLED IN PART BY LOOKING AT THE VARIATIONS IN THE ACCOUNTS REGARDING HIS DEATH. REMEMBER: THE BIBLE ONLY MENTIONS THE NAME OF NIMROD IN 4 PLACES (TWICE IN GENESIS, ONCE IN 1 CHRONICLES AND ONCE IN MICAH). 3 OF THE 4 VERSES ARE ESSENTIALLY THE SAME.

This 2,000 word article comes from a 17,000 word mega-chapter developed for RTB, Part 2.
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 to be said about his importance than just the speculation that he might be figure who arises again in the last days (“who was, is not, but will be again” – Revelation 17:8) as the Antichrist.
