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.
Do you know how Babel points to Jesus Christ?
This exciting new video answers the most important questions about the Tower of Babel in Genesis and the intriguing topics related to it.
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? Apologetics expert Bodie Hodge says the Bible is accurate and answers such questions as:
Who built the Tower of Babel?
What did it look like?
Who was Nimrod and what was his part in the rebellion?
Did the continents split at the time of Babel?
Why did God confuse the people with multiple languages?
By what means did the people travel?
Where did all the different people initially go?
Why the sudden decrease in longevity?
What do extra-biblical sources say of a language split?
How does Babel point to Jesus Christ?
And many more!
The Babel account can be trusted as written, and it is a key to understanding evangelism and the lands and people of the world today!
About the Author:
A speaker, writer, and researcher for Answers in Genesis, Bodie Hodge has a master’s degree in mechanical engineering from Southern Illinois University at Carbondale.
His specialty was a subset of mechanical engineering based in advanced materials processing, particularly starting powders. He is the author of The Fall of Satan, The War on Christmas, co-author of Dragons: Legends & Lore of Dinosaurs and The Flood of Noah. During his years at SIUC (a secular college), he continued his personal study of biblical apologetics, and even began teaching this topic to a junior high church class. While at SIUC, he was the president of one of the few Christian RSOs (Registered Student Organizations) called Christians Unlimited, and was also an officer in the student chapter of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers. After earning his master’s degree, he accepted a position of Visiting Instructor at SIUC and started in the fall semester of 1998. He was only 24 years old when he began teaching undergraduate engineering courses at the university.
After working for SIUC for a couple of years, Bodie accepted a position as a test engineer through Aerotek Engineering to work for Caterpillar Inc. in Peoria, Illinois at the Peoria Proving Ground. While working at Caterpillar, he taught apologetics to junior high and high school students at his local church, which was a natural outcome considering his love for science, history, and theology. He did this until taking a position with Answers in Genesis in 2003.
