You are invited to join our Genesis Matters fellowship group for a live webinar broadcast from the UK this Saturday February 13, 2021 from 6:50 am to 3 pm.

How do we share the gospel in a post-Christian culture? These huge social questions abound in today’s culture. Be ready to get answers, based on the authority of God’s Word, at this unique conference.

‘Contending for Society?’ will take place on Saturday 13th February (from 11:50 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. GMT, UK time). Whether you have attended any of our previous webinars or not, you don’t want to miss this one!

The Tower of Babel Revealed

You are invited to our next Genesis Matters Fellowship on Sunday February 28  from 12:30 p.m. to 2:00 p.m.

For more details and to RSVP, please contact us.We’ll share a potluck lunch and view a DVD. Then we’ll have a Bible based discussion, share and pray.
We will view and discuss the DVD  “The Tower of Babel” with Bodie Hodge. Many Christians—including many theologians and academics—believe the events the Bible describes at Babel are myths or legends, and need to be reinterpreted. They attack the account, saying it cannot possibly be based on fact. But are these assaults on the Bible warranted?
DVD-TowerofBabel

Apologetics expert Bodie Hodge says the Bible is accurate and answers such questions as:

  1. Who built the Tower of Babel?
  2. What did it look like?
  3. Who was Nimrod and what was his part in the rebellion?
  4. Did the continents split at the time of Babel?
  5. Why did God confuse the people with multiple languages?
  6. By what means did the people travel?
  7. Where did all the different people initially go?
  8. Why the sudden decrease in longevity?
  9. What do extra-biblical sources say of a language split?
  10. How does Babel point to Jesus Christ?

The Tower of Babel from Genesis 11:1-9
The following is the account of the Tower of Babel according to the Bible, God’s Holy Word.

11 Now the whole world had one language and a common speech. 2 As people moved eastward,[a] they found a plain in Shinar and settled there.

3 They said to each other, “Come, let’s make bricks and bake them thoroughly.” They used brick instead of stone, and tar for mortar. 4 Then they said, “Come, let us build ourselves a city, with a tower that reaches to the heavens, so that we may make a name for ourselves; otherwise we will be scattered over the face of the whole earth.”

5 But the Lord came down to see the city and the tower the people were building. 6 The Lord said, “If as one people speaking the same language they have begun to do this, then nothing they plan to do will be impossible for them. 7 Come, let us go down and confuse their language so they will not understand each other.”

8 So the Lord scattered them from there over all the earth, and they stopped building the city. 9 That is why it was called Babel[c]—because there the Lord confused the language of the whole world. From there the Lord scattered them over the face of the whole earth.

 

Other Learning Resources

Book: “Tower of Babel: The Cultural History of Our Ancestors” by Bodie Hodge. Publisher: Answers in Genesis.
This new book reveals humanity’s shared ancestry as never before! Most Christians are familiar with the biblical account of Babel, but after the dispersion, there appears to be a void until hundreds of years later when empires like Rome and Greece arose. Discover the truth of the people groups and the civilizations that spread across the earth. All trace their roots back to Babel as well as to the sons and grandsons of Noah!

Many of today’s scholars write off what occurred at the Tower of Babel as mythology and deny that it was a historical event. Beginning with the biblical accounts, author Bodie Hodge researched ancient texts, critical clues, and rare historic records to help solve the mystery of what happened to the families that built Babel. Teens and adults can use this layman’s friendly overview of what happened during the Tower of Babel dispersion, and beyond!

 

DVD: “The Tower of Babel: Can the “Story” be trusted today?” Featuring Bodie Hodge
Many Christians—including many theologians and academics—believe the events the Bible describes at Babel are myths or legends, and need to be reinterpreted. They attack the account, saying it cannot possibly be based on fact. But are these assaults on the Bible warranted?

 

DVD: “Genesis, Babel & the Chinese Language” Featuring Prof. Andy McIntosh. Publisher: Answers in Genesis.
If the Tower of Babel really took place, do we have any evidence today? Dr. McIntosh reveals some astonishing evidence that biblical events are recorded within the written language of ancient China!

 

Wall Chart: “Babel Explains Our Differences” Publisher: Answers in Genesis.
The Tower of Babel helps to explain much, much more in our world today than just our differences in language. This exclusive wall chart from Answers magazine Vol. 3 No. 2 lists seven specific topics that can be explained by the historical event at Babel. From striking similarities in human genetics to a wide variety of skin tones and the order of fossil layers to archaeological discoveries of stone tools, the Tower of Babel is the proper starting point for understanding human history and the many differences in our world.
