Thesis 19: Nimrod: The First Politician (Post-Flood)

Nimrod, following Cain’s error, left the Godly Family to form a “State.”[1] His name means “let us rebel.”[2]

1. Genesis 10:8-12
2. cf. 1 Samuel 15:23; Revelation 18:23

Nimrod: Old Testament Hebrew -

By the time we get to the account of Nimrod, God has not said to man, "Form the State." Formation of the State is the act of rebels, not saints.
