The Animated Kids Bible Sunday School Lessons
Nimrod was the son of Cush, grandson to Ham, son of Noah. His name means ‘rebel,’
Rebellion against God began soon after the Great Flood as civilizations were rebuilt & Nimrod rose to fame as a mighty warrior hunter. But he became proud in his courage & abilities encouraging others to depend on themselves than depend on God.
Nimrod built a tower-monument to self-effort & self-rule, being ‘the Tower Of Babel.’
But God dispersed their efforts by confusing their language which is why the name ‘Babel’ is used, meaning ‘confusion.’
Nimrod appears in the fascinating third installment of the ‘Book of Genesis’ set — Episode 3 of ‘The Animated Kids Bible’: ‘Towering Pride & True Lies.’
