Nimrod was a very significant man in ancient times, the grandson of Ham and great-grandson of Noah. This was also part of Nimrod's kingdom (Gen. 10:11). Often attributed to Nimrod, the Tower of Babel (Gen. 11:19) was not a Jack and the Beanstalk-type of construction, where people were trying to build a structure to get into heaven. Nimrod revealed.
