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!

CONTINENTAL DRIFT, NO! YES! TO DRAMATIC RISE IN SEA LEVELS. GENESIS 10 AND THE DIVISION OF NATIONS

WHAT CAUSED THE DIVISION OF NATIONS?  LAST WEEK, MANY SCOFFERS COMMENTED ON MY FACEBOOK BLOG THAT THE THEORY SOME CREATIONISTS HOLD ABOUT CONTINENTAL DRIFT BEING THE CAUSE FOR THE DIVISION OF NATIONS SPOKEN OF IN GENESIS 11 IS SHEAR LUNACY. WELL, OKAY.

BUT I RESPECT THOSE WHO HOLD TO THIS POSITION, BUT IT ISN’T WHAT I BELIEVE, CONTRARY TO WHAT THOSE RUDE READERS IMPLIED BY THEIR SLAMS AND INSULTS (OF COURSE, SELDOM DO FB RESPONDENTS READ AN ARTICLE THEY DERIDE — DRIVE BY TROLLS I CALL THEM).  WOW!  HATE IS ALIVE AND WELL ON PLANET EARTH.

MY POSITION? POST-FLOOD, … Read More

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).
