The First Worldwide Dictator

Nimrod (Genesis 10:8).  You know him for his astrological building project called The Tower of Babel.  His territory started in what became Babylon.  In fact the Tower of Babel is how the region got its name. Some scholars suggest that the translation about Nimrod being a mighty hunter before the Lord should actually read “… in the face of the Lord.”  In other words, Nimrod was not a godly guy.  In fact, his name means “Rebellion.”  Idolatry began in Babylon and will ultimately end there.
