So the LORD dispersed them from there over the face of all the earth, and they left off building the city.
Therefore its name was called Babel, because there the LORD confused the language of all the earth. George believes that its builders, hailing from all over the region, could represent the Biblical ‘multitudes’ of languages which led to the tower’s destruction.
An ancient tablet from Babylon depicting a massive tower has recently been deciphered, and some are now saying it shows powerful evidence that the Bible’s tower of Babel was real.
However, a closer look at the facts reveals that things are not always as they are portrayed.
What’s at stake for jumping to this conclusion is nothing less than undermining the historical credibility of the Bible.
At the heart of the issue is knowing how the history of the Bible relates to the history of the ancient world.
George’s own statements, show that it does not actually fit the Bible’s account of the Tower of Babel. George clearly does not really think it provides evidence that the Bible’s account is real history, as one might conclude from a cursory viewing of the show’s trailer.
