Sherira Gaon and the Jews of Babylon Jewish Biography as History Dr. Henry Abramson

Who, exactly, wrote down the foundational texts of the Oral Torah? Who is responsible for the compiling of the Talmud? These were some of the questions addressed to Sherira Gaon, the Rosh Yeshiva of the great city of Pumbedita in Babylon in 987 by a young Rabbi in Tunisia. His famous response, preserved for over a thousand years, is an impressive survey of the Jewish intellectual tradition, leading up to the establishment of the greatest Talmudic centers in Jewish history.

NIMROD | Founder of the Occult ? ????

This video is Part 2 of a biblical series on NIMROD.

Nimrod, is briefly mentioned in the Old Testament, yet he played a key role in Biblical history. He was the founder of Babylon.

His name means REBEL or To Revolt Against.

This quality of rebellion proved dangerous coupled with the mysterious transformation he went through.A transformation that seemed to appear positive at first, as he grew in strength.... Yet, later proving nefarious as he began to be entrenched in idol worship and in iniquity.

And in this short series on Nimrod, of which this is part 2, we will unravel Nimrod's downfall and the lesson we can learn from it.

Warmest Shalom
Ahava Sarah Fischer

Cush begot Nimrod; he began to be a mighty one on the earth. 9 He was a mighty hunter before the Lord; therefore it is said, “Like Nimrod the mighty hunter before the Lord.”
And the beginning of his kingdom was Babel, Erech, Accad, and Calneh, in the land of Shinar.
From that land he went to Assyria and built Nineveh, Rehoboth Ir, Calah, and Resen between Nineveh and Calah (that is the principal city). _ Genesis 10:8/12

Events of the 810s BC part 2: Semiramis, Queen of the World

This week we meet the mother of Adad-Nirari III, whose reknown long after her death outlived even the Assyrian empire itself. If you had asked someone in the 17th Century BC (or at any time before Queen Victoria of England) who was the most powerful female ruler in history they would have answered Semiramis, Queen of Assyria

But who was she? And did she really conquer all of India or just parts of it?

Meanwhile, despite the powerful Queen to his south, Ishpuini of Urartu is growing his kingdom even stronger.

We also get to meet Jehoahaz, king of Israel and something happens in ... Sparta!

The illustrations: Jacob wrestles the angel by Gustave Dore (1855) and Joseph sold to Egypt by Alexander Ivanov (1833). Both pictures are in PUBLIC DOMAIN due to the age expiry.

Read online -

There are several (as many as five) separate works by this title, all composed much later than Biblical times. This particular one is a translation of a Hebrew book printed in 1613. Sepir Ha Yasher, the Hebrew title of this book, means the 'Book of the Upright', or 'the Upright or Correct Record'. This title was misread as 'Jasher', and at some point Jasher was treated as a proper name; however the pronoun 'the' (hebrew 'ha') never preceeds proper names. This text covers much of the same ground as the traditional Mosaic books of the Bible, from the creation of the world to the death of Moses, albeit with several minor variations.

The Tower of Babel with British Museum curator Irving Finkel

See various depictions of the Tower of Babel through the ages. With British Museum curator Irving Finkel



Archaeologists say they now know what the Tower of Babel looked like during the days of biblical king Nabuchadnezzar.

Dr Wilfrid Allinger-Csollich of Austria's University of Innsbruck says the evidence was collected during 20 years of excavations at Borsippa, Iraq - the site of the best preserved Mesopotamian tower.

Borsippa, 120 kilometres (75 miles) south of Baghdad, was elegantly refurbished by Nabuchadnezzar in the sixth century B-C as a copy of the Tower of Babel, and is now revealing the secrets of its destroyed inspiration.

The ruins of a tower in the Iraqi desert may hold the secrets to the size and shape of the Bible's Tower of Babel.

The Tower of Babel was the construction that, according to the Bible, was erected by the descendants of Noah, in an attempt to unite all peoples by building a city and tower that would reach to heaven.

The legend says that their God thwarted their efforts because he saw the move as arrogant.

He is said to have scattered the people - and turned their one language into many.

The story is seen as an attempt to explain the origin of the languages of the world.

Built by King Nabuchadnezzar, the ziqqurat, or temple tower, in Borsippa, has been found to be have been constructed on the same designs of that of the more famous tower in Babylon.

While very little remains of the Tower of Babel, the bulk of Borsippa's ziqqurat is still there, and Austrian archaeologists have been able to piece together a full picture of the Biblical tower.

SOUNDBITE: (English)
There were many ziqqurats all over Babylonia or Mesopotamia and this ziqqurat had it's largest dimensions in the first millennium under Nabuchadnezzar.
SUPER CAPTION: Professor Helga Trenkwalder

SOUNDBITE: (English)
The conclusion maybe that from the detailed studies here in Bosippa, we can say what were the dimensions of the tower of Babylon. We know the height of every stage and we are able to conclude and to say the size of the whole tower.
SUPER CAPTION: Dr Wilfrid Alliger-Csollich

Texts found on the side of the tower quotes Nabuchadnezzar as declaring that the tower should reach the skies and be similar to the one he had already erected in Babylon for the supreme Mesopotamian god, Mardukh.

The Austrians said they needed 20 years of work to determine the exact dimensions of Borsippa tower.

The Austrians have also determined the tower had three staircases and they are in the process of counting how many steps each had.

Their picture of outer structure is almost complete.

The first two stages were covered with bitumen and were black.

The third, fourth and fifth were decorated with blue glazed bricks and possibly adorned with mythical animals - lions and dragons.

The Austrian discovery is good news for Iraqis, who this month held an international symposium to discuss the Tower of Babel.

The Evolution of Language & The Tower of Babel - Professor Steve Jones

Professor Jones explains how, like creatures, languages have also evolved through time and was the first scientific statement of the process of the existence of evolution.

An extract from a lecture entitled 'Did God Evolve? An Evolutionists Speculation about Religion':

Feeding Moloch: The Sacrifice of Children on the Altar of Capitalism

Russell Banks, one of the United States's most celebrated writers of contemporary fiction, delivers the 2014 Ingersoll Lecture on Immortality at Harvard Divinity School.

Banks argues that immortality, if it exists, lies with people's descendants—their children, and their children’s children, and on. In the modern era, he states, it has become increasingly difficult to protect children from dangerous forces in the world. Today, children have become the largest single segment of the consumer economy.

In order to understand the many lies that have given to us over time, we must be educated on the truth. A main part of my ministry is to educate so that lies can be truly seen and bondage be broken. Many people are against Christianity for many reasons, but one of the biggest reasons is they don't understand the history behind it. So my next series of videos will be educating my viewers on the history of religion. In an effort to keep the time down, it's just a summary so if there is something left out or that you don't understand leave it in the comments and I will try to answer if I can. I hope this blesses whoever watched. The Lord says his people suffer for a lack of knowledge and my goal is to try and stop the suffering.
