Study. The Tower of Babel , according to Josephus . By Fabian Massa.

Translated from Spanish to English with Google Translator.


After the Flood , and because of the blessing that God gave Noah and his three sons , came a rapid multiplication of both men and animals , as we can see in the post " The first population explosion after the Flood [1 ]"

In the fourth generation natural leader of great charisma, Nimrod arises . God had blessed multiplication in order that men repopulate the earth. But Nimrod led them to do the opposite, Josephus says about it : " The crowd was willing to follow the dictates of Nebredes (Nimrod ) and consider cowardice to submit to God [2 ]" .

Nimrod founded the first Babylonian Empire, the first attempt at a New World Order . [3] This Empire occupied the entire Mesopotamia. In the post "Cities of Nimrod " is a listing of the cities founded by Nimrod in Gen. 10. [4]


Legend has it that in the middle of the city of Babylon , the men decided to build a tower , now known as the " Tower Of Babel" Herodotus gave him a description in his Nine Books of History, you can see in the post " Babylon, as Herodotus [5 ] "

This time , I approached Josephus 's comment about the Tower of Babel.

And they raised the tower worked without pause or break, as were many intervening arms began to rise rapidly, more rapidly than would be expected . But it was so thick and so strong , that by its great height seemed less than what it was . It was built of baked bricks , joined with bitumen to not pass water. When God saw work like crazy decided not to destroy them completely because they had not learned anything from the previous destruction of sinners provoked , however , confusion cot making them shall speak different languages ​​so they will not understand each other. The place where they built the tower is called Babylon, by the confusion of tongues , because in Hebrew babel means confusion .
Antiquities of the Jews, Josephus, 4.3.


And they raised the tower worked without pause or break, as were many intervening arms began to rise rapidly, more rapidly than would be expected .

Obviously this type of work were corporate , like the great buildings of the Old World as the Pyramids of Egypt or Mexico .


But it was so thick and so strong , that by its great height seemed less than what it was . It was built of baked bricks , joined with bitumen to not pass water.

According to the remains found in 1913 in Akar Quf by archaeologist Robert Koldewey , whose base was about 90m from the side, it might have reached a height of 90 m . But according to recent studies by the Spanish historian Juan Luis Montero a structure made of adobe bricks could not have withstood such a burden . Likewise the clay soil of the area not resist such a weight. According to the historian , the height of the ziggurats of adobe can not exceed 70 % of the base , which would have reached the 60m tower , ( the same height as a modern 20-story building )


When God saw work like crazy decided not to destroy them completely because they had not learned anything from the previous destruction of sinners provoked , however , confusion cot making them shall speak different languages ​​so they will not understand each other. The place where they built the tower is called Babylon, by the confusion of tongues , because in Hebrew babel means confusion .

As we saw in other post , the Tower is a symbol of the religious man , who wants to get to Heaven ( The spiritual ) not brand the Way God (Jesus said, "I am the Way, the Truth and the Life " - John 14:6 ), but by their own systems.
All these religious systems only provide confusion and ruin, not leading to any " Heaven." The road to ascend the tower , looking the " upliftment of I " to "other Levels of Consciousness " (as the " Ascended Masters " arise ) . The fact is that God himself had to descend as the Son of Man in Jesus Christ , to save us all.


Week 70 is about to begin . Just as the Tower of Babel did not work for his generation, the current religions will not serve this . Only Cristo Salva . Are we ready ?
