The Family of Shem: Introduction

The tendency is to skip from the story of the tower of Babel to chapter 12 and the call of Abram. Yet, there is some information here that God, through our author Moses, wants us to know.

In verses 10-32 we find two more books in the book of Genesis. We have the book of Shem which is another genealogy and the beginning of the book of Terah.

Confusion: God is in Control

Part 3 of 3. The tower of Babel is left undone because God has set king Jesus in Zion on his holy hill. Kiss the Son. Serve the Lord with fear and rejoice with trembling. For your name is nothing but at the name of Lord Jesus, every knee will bow.

Confusion: Introduction

Part 1 of 3. The important events that Moses records for us in Genesis are events that we all live with the ramifications.

The historical account of the tower of Babel is another one of those events that we still feel the consequences today.

The Sons of Noah: Remember the Nations

Part 2 of 6 The Israelites were called by God over and over again to separate themselves from the nations. Here we have the truth that they are not to separate themselves because the other nations are subhuman or are not in God’s image. No, the separation comes because of their relationship with God.
