Tag Archives: Table of Nations
WE CONTINUE our study of the Book of Genesis, picking up in chapter 10, the Table of Nations, and continue through the Tower of Babel episode and down the generations to the beginning of the story of Abraham.
Key questions: Who was Nimrod, and what was so important about the Tower of Babel that Yahweh was compelled to personally intervene?
Some study resources:
- Fate of the Ethnic Groups in the Table of Nations (PDF document) from www.CreationConcepts.org
- Nimrod and Scottish Rite Freemasonry (PDF document) – Derek’s essay on the Double-Headed Eagle of Lagash, Nimrod, and the Tower of Babel incident (covers much of what we discussed)
- Peter Goodgame’s essay The First Pharaoh, part of his online e-book The Giza Discovery (which was the bulk of his book The Second Coming of the Antichrist), making the case that Nimrod was Narmer, the first pharaoh of Egypt, and Enmerkar, a Sumerian king.
Please note: This week, we are changing the fellowship from a live video stream to a live webcast via BlogTalkRadio. BTR’s chat room is easier to use than Google’s, and we hope this will make it easier to engage in real time virtual discussion of the text.
