BEFORE WE pick up the story of Abraham, some context: When God divided the nations after the Tower of Babel incident, He placed them under the supervision of “sons of God,” angelic beings who were charged with carrying out His will while supervising His creation.
THE TOWER of Babel was not at Babylon. It was at a place that was at least as important in the spiritual sense: Eridu.
We pick up in Genesis chapter 10, the Table of Nations, and continue through the Tower of Babel episode. What was so important about the tower that Yahweh was compelled to personally intervene?
