Tower of Babel ~ Links

Ever wondered where all the different languages and races came from? What about cavemen? How do they fit into the Bible?

The Tower of Babel comes from a time in history when all humanity was united in race and language – and everyone still knew they were one human family. The incredible engineering skills of all mankind were together in one place (like the internet today)… and the sky was the limit. In this post you will find Tower of Babel colouring pages, puzzles, crafts, posters and activities for kids. As we can really only speculate what this original tower looked like that celebrated the achievements of man, I’ve chosen a 21st century equivalent for my picture today.

Ignoring the Creator’s commands for the family to spread out over the earth after the global flood of Noah (all people alive then and today are descended from him), they decided on a little DIY religion project of their own and set out to build the great Tower of Babel to celebrate the achievements and technology of man. They decided to reach God on their own terms and by the power of man, rather than on God’s terms and by the grace of the Creator. Sound familiar? We haven’t learnt anything, have we?! But God intervened and split them up before they could finish. Suddenly, no one could understand what the others next to them were saying. Can you imagine?!

Everyone moved away, each family taking only their respective talents and technology with them, and spread out into different places over the earth. Think about that for a minute. If you were suddenly forced to move away with just your immediate family group, what talents would you take with you? Maybe you might know how to fix a car or a computer, but would you know how to build one from scratch? And where would you live? Incidentally, this is most likely where ‘cavemen‘ came from. Intelligent people who had to live in caves for a while.

TOWER OF BABEL ~ INFORMATION FOR KIDS ~ FREE PRINTABLE

Dr Chuck Missler gives a brief outline of the Tower of Babel (only a few minutes)

Here is a longer version…

A Tower for Rebels – fun article for kids  (Answers in Genesis) beautifully illustrated with cartoons; God’s judgement at the Tower of Babel and the consequences of this rebellion against God. Kids will also learn: Babel had a huge effect on the world, which continues today; The confusion at Babel led to all the different languages we speak today; People in different parts of the world look different because God’s judgement at Babel separated us, but we’re still one big family, descended from Adam.

Are we really part of the same family? – fun article for kids  (creation.com) beautifully illustrated; Because God created Adam and Eve to be the parents of everyone, so we are all related. And Adam’s children, and their children after them, spoke the same language all the way to Noah. And then only Noah’s family survived the Flood. So, all Noah’s descendants spoke the same language even hundreds of years after the Flood. What changed?

Confusion – fun article for kids  (creation.com) beautifully illustrated; After the Flood, Noah and his family were the only people alive on the earth. God told them to have lots of children because he wanted their descendants to spread out and live all over the earth. So Noah’s family had lots of children, who had lots of children, who had lots of children, and so on. After a while there were hundreds, and then thousands of people. They moved from the mountains of Ararat, where the Ark had landed, to a broad plain called Shinar. But none of them wanted to obey God’s command to live in other parts of the earth. Instead, they said to each other: “Come on! Let’s build a city for ourselves with a tower that reaches way up into the sky, to make a name for ourselves…”

Tower of Babel – fun article for kids  (pdf; from creation.com) beautifully illustrated; After the Flood, the eight members of Noah’s family were the only people alive on the earth. God gave them a very special blessing. He told them to be fruitful and increase in number and fill the earth. So Noah’s three sons and their three wives had lots of children, who had lots of children, who had lots of children… Soon there were hundreds, and after a while thousands of people. God told Noah that his descendants were to spread out all over the earth… What a great adventure this would have been! But sadly, they didn’t do it; plus interesting FAQ snippets, Why can people talk and animals can’t? Can all the languages on Earth be traced back to one language? How did all the different people groups form? How could the people of that day have built such a huge tower?; free printable

Confusion – fun cartoon for kids  (scroll down to Lesson 7 and 8; Answers in Genesis)  Lesson 7 tells how God confused the language of the people at Babel so they couldn’t understand each other; Lesson 8 explains how God in His Word tells us the true history of “cavemen”; free printable

Confusion – for kids  (Answers in Genesis) after God confused the languages at Babel because of man’s disobedience, various groups split up, taking with them their individual knowledge of technology. Some knew more about farming, some knew more about building great structures, and some knew how to use metal to make tools. Those groups which didn’t know how to do any of these things would be forced to “begin again”.

Towel of Babel – really simple explanation for kids  (Answers in Genesis)  Why are there so many different people? Why do we look so different? The Flood destroyed the whole world—everyone except Noah and his family. But Noah’s family started sinning against God again. So God judged them, too. This time He confused their language and scattered them all over the world. All the different people we see today are from Noah’s family! That includes you and me.

What difference does Babel make? / Towers of Today  (Answers in Genesis)  Babel had a huge effect on the world, which continues today; The confusion at Babel led to all the different languages we speak today; People in different parts of the world look different because God’s judgement at Babel separated us, but we’re still one big family, descended from Adam.

Why do we look different?  (Answers in Genesis) If you were to look through a microscope at a piece of your skin, you would find lots of interesting cells… (called “melanocytes”) make a pigment (called “melanin”) that helps to give your skin some color. The more melanin that these melanocytes produce, the darker the skin will be.

What did the tower look like?  (Answers in Genesis) The simple answer is that the Bible does not tell us. All we know is that God intervened before the construction project was completed. Studying the oldest buildings from the area, archaeologists assume the Tower at Babel looked like a ziggurat.

Are There Really Different Races?  (Answers in Genesis)

Would the real caveman please stand up  (Answers in Genesis) Everything you might expect to find from the settlements of any non-industrialized people is found… suggest these early travelers sewed garments or wove baskets… colorful cave paintings that may relate to phases of the moon. Site after site reveals thousands of small, beautifully made javelins, arrows, and ornate artefacts, often with carvings and designs on them, such as the ivory pendant made from mammoth tusk… Our relatives may have looked different, but they weren’t bumbling brutes. They had the very human and God-given ability to discover creative solutions in a dangerous, sin-cursed world. And they were all rebels from God, in need of His grace.

The origin of language  (Answers in Genesis) One of the great mysteries of life is the origin of language. We use it every day to communicate with each other, but how did it begin?
