Purpose of the Tower
by Adam Estep
Nimrod hated G-d and sought to justify himself and his people. His anger was systemic of his fathers teaching and knowledge of the Noahic curse.
The Tower was specifically built as a slap in the face of the Almighty G-d. Nimrods knowledge of the Noahic was fresh in his head put there by Ham (son of Noah) himself.
Nimrod built the tower in an attempt to beat G-d from such a flood revisited. His goal was to make the Tower higher than the tallest mountain top and its base was equally impressive.
The base was enormous because the tower was designed to house his choice subjects and his family at its top in a manner that was to preemptively thwart G-ds ability to destroy humanity once again by the waters.
• In short he built a nuclear bunker with G-d being his enemy...Key points:
• First-hand knowledge of G-ds flood
• Large base to build the tower that towered over mountains
• At the mountain height his choice subjects, friends, and family could live there with provisions until the flood subsided
• Simply put Nimrod was trying to best G-d in the manner of Cane.
