Genesis 8-11

Tower of Babel

Again, the SAB pretty much covers all the contradictions and absurdities in the conclusion of the Noah’s Ark story.

In 9:4 we get the first of several admonitions against eating blood. These verses are used by Jews as part of the rules about keeping kosher, and by Jehovah’s Witnesses to justify refusing blood transfusions.

If you’re following along reading the online version of the SAB, be sure to check out the links underneath each chapter. They lead to some fascinating trivia and opinion pieces.

 

 

Here’s a video version of the Tower of Babel.
