Bible Reference & Cartoon Description

Genesis 11:1-4 (NLT)
The tower of Babel
1 At one time all the people of the world spoke the same language and used the same words. 2 As the people migrated to the east, they found a plain in the land of Babylonia [1] and settled there. 3 They began saying to each other, “Let’s make bricks and harden them with fire.” (In this region bricks were used instead of stone, and tar was used for mortar.) 4 Then they said, “Come, let’s build a great city for ourselves with a tower that reaches into the sky. This will make us famous and keep us from being scattered all over the world.”

[1]
Hebrew, Shinar

Bible Doctrine Notes
11:1-9 MIRACLE, Continual Creation (2.22A)

God did not stop his creative powers after the first 7 days of world history. His creative actions continue to fulfil His purpose, even in responding to human sin. Human pride and sin produced the tower of Babel. God intended the whole world to be inhabited by people. God responded to the tower in limited judgement at this time, by causing the people to be scattered throughout the earth, once they could not understand each other by the creation of diverse languages. This new situation for people required a new stage in God’s redemptive missionary operations on earth.

11:1-9 HUMANITY, Potentiality (2.41D)
God’s assessment of human potential in verse 6 is one of the highest compliments paid to humankind anywhere in the Bible: “Look!” he [God] said. “The people are united, and they all speak the same language. After this, nothing they set out to do will be impossible for them!…” Cooperative, unrestrictive, unified human efforts can have almost unlimited results. The common language heritage of humanity serves as evidence for the interrelatedness of all people.

11:4 SIN, Rebellion (2.53F)
God created human beings to have fellowship with him and serve their creator. At Babel the people chose to serve their own pride and egotism. Rather than trust God to protect their community. the people took matters into their own hands. This type of personal or community-based rebellion is sin. We are called to trust the Creator, not usurp His place.
