Few people have ever stopped to consider that Noah and Abraham (and even Shem and Nimrod) were contemporaries. I certainly hadn’t! But as I have taken the time to dig deeper into the scriptures many things are beginning to come to light. The book of Jasher has forced me to explore some very interesting trails and answered many of my questions.
Too often, because of my laziness, I have skipped “the begets”; and because of that I have stayed trapped in my ignorance. I say trapped because those that do not know history are doomed to repeat it and learning about the confrontations between Abram and Nimrod can help to preserve our lives in the future, both near and eternal.
That which has been is what will be, that which is done is what will be done, and there is nothing new under the sun. (Ecc 1:9)
