THE DEATH OF NIMROD

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, […]

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.

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 […]

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 […]

Does Genesis 1-11 Provide for “Generation Gaps” to Make the Genesis Chronology Make Sense to Science?

How do we reconcile an old earth with the Bible?  Even if we grant the world is very old, God’s creation of Adam and Eve is dated by the Masoretic Text to 6,000 years ago, and the Septuagint to 7,600 years ago.  But what if there were “generation gaps” (or additional gaps in the chronologies […]

The following article is taken from Chapter 3 of Rebooting the Bible, Part 2. The division of the nations (or the world) was the first major event that occurred consecutively after the Tower of Babel.  The question is did it happen at the same time?  Or did it happen about 300 years after the Babel rebellion?  This […]

The following article is taken from Chapter Two of Rebooting the Bible, Part Two. The topic focuses on which ancient source supplies the correct, authentic timeline of Genesis 1-11, that tells us the biblical witness for all the great storylines of the opening chapters of the Bible.
