Show Notes

Genesis 10:6-10

Genesis 11:4

Who Was Nimrod?

Great-grandson of Noah, grandson of Ham, Son of Cush

Mighty hunter, Mighty one on earth, Mighty hunter before the Lord (Mighty means manly, vigorous, hero, champion, tyrant, trapping men by force into his new kingdom)

The name “Nimrod” means “We will revolt.”

“The beginning of Nimrod’s Kingdom”—Kingdom means rule, dominion, king kingship

Babel was part of Nimrod’s Kingdom

Where Was His Kingdom?

The beginning of Nimrod’s Kingdom was in the land of Shinar: Babel, Urek (Erech), Accad, and Calneh. Later he built Ninveh, Rehoboth-Ir, Calah, and Resen.

Quote from History of the World by Flavius Josephus

Don Landis, The Secrets of Ancient Man (Master Books) page 13

Babel is Satan’s counterfeit for God’s Kingdom

“Come let us”: The goal of Babel was unity, to stay together, disobeying God’s command to fill the earth

“Build a City” Political goals, organized, one-world government (repeated over and over in history)

“A Tower into Heaven” Tower would reach the heavens, be like God, enter the heavens themselves

“A Name for Ourselves” Instead of glorifying God, glorifying man, self, own reason, own discovery

Hungarian Legends about Nimrod

Nimrod’s Legacy

Nimrod did not just open himself up to the devil and sin against God, he urged and inspired others to fall away from God and serve satan. His sin affected others too.

Nimrod’s legacy is pride, death, destruction, and separation from God.

Life Lesson from Ancient History

God has a plan to build His Kingdom, His Church, spread His glory as the waters cover the sea.

God’s plan is for sovereign nations, not one world government

We don’t “climb up to God,” but God came down to us through Jesus

We live for the glory of God, He gets glory
