Duration: 1 hr 18 mins 28 secs

What was the Tower of Babel and why did God stop the grandiose plans of the people building it? Listen to this lesson to learn about the first incident of globalism in the world. Find out the role language plays in uniting people and how confusing the languages created tribes which eventually led to many nations. See biblical references to nations and hear elements that make up a nation.

During this lesson, Dr. Dean referred to Yoram Hazony's YouTube channel for additional information. He is the author of The Virtue of Nationalism. Also, watch the debate between Yoram Hazony vs. Bret Stephens.

Passage: Genesis 10-11
Series: 2016 Chafer Theological Seminary Bible Conference
Duration: 1 hr 19 mins 46 secs

Most world almanacs list 193 independent countries in the world. Linguist John Oller Jr. claims that there are 6912 distinct languages with 94 different language families in the world today. Where did all these nations and these many languages come from? The answer to this question is unknown to the secular world. Their best explanation is that all these must have come as a result of many years of evolutionary development. But the best answer is given to us by revelation, the account of Babel in Genesis 11.

The secular world does not view the account of the Tower of Babel as historical. Even most believers do not consider Babel as important as other major events, particularly in the book of Genesis. However, like the Flood and the Fall of mankind, the impact of Babel continues to influence our world even today. In fact, Babel has far-reaching implications. Babel explains the origin of national entities as well as our struggles to communicate with those from other cultures. I am reminded of this each year that I go to Ukraine to teach. Without a translator, I am close to useless there.
