THE DEATH OF NIMROD

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. THEREFORE, THE BIBLE SAYS VERY LITTLE. ONLY THAT HE BECAME A MIGHTY ONE IN THE EARTH AND THAT HE CONQUERED FOUR CITIES AND BUILT FOUR OTHERS.  EVERYTHING ELSE ABOUT NIMROD IS LEGEND.

[Speaking of Legend, the featured picture is of Gilgamesh and the death of his … Read More

NIMROD–WHAT IS FACT AND WHAT IS FICTION

This week’s post comes from chapter 5 of Rebooting the Bible, Part 2. This is part 2 of 3 parts regarding NIMROD, one of the more sinister characters in the Scriptures. Truth about NIMROD is quite different than what most Bible students believe. It takes the right chronology (as supplied by the Septuagint-LXX) and an Egyptologist that has reverence for the biblical account (David Rohl). 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!

NIMROD: MORE THAN HISTORY’S FIRST ENCOUNTER WITH THE ANTICHRIST

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.

DID CONTINENTAL DRIFT CAUSE THE SCATTERING OF NATIONS IN GENESIS 10/11?

In a recent post that got a lot of attention, I spoke about three different view on what caused the world to be divided and for the peoples of the world to scatter, post-Flood.  The usual position is that the incident at the Tower of Babel was the cause.  When the Tower was supposedly knocked down, the city was abandoned, and the peoples went there separate ways, the world after the Great Flood of Noah, was replenished with humans, all from the sons of Noah, sometime after the Ark came to rest (estimates vary from 100 to 300 years afterward).
