Who is this program for?
Ps 119:130 "The entrance of Your Words gives light; it gives understanding to the simple."
As with all of my programs the main emphasis is on Biblical history. I
designed this program to help students who wish to learn the basics about ancient
Babylonia and its culture. Without a proper understanding of the ancient world the
Bible can be very hard to understand and often misinterpreted.
What's covered in this program?
Who were the Babylonians? Where were they from? Why does the Bible mention so
much about them? These questions and more are often asked by curious students
of the Book of Books, the Bible. One of the main interests in this region of the
world is no doubt attached to some of the miraculous events that happened
nearby, such as the Garden of Eden, Noah s Ark, the Tower of Babel and the magnificent kingdom built by King
Nebuchadnezzar where just his gardens were recorded in history as one of the wonders of
the world. In this brief program my intention is to give a general overview of
the Babylonians, their people, places and events that have been substantiated as
fixed facts in history. I hope you enjoy it.

My Mission Statement
My Doctrinal Statement
by R. Russell
2 Kin 24:13-14 "And Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon carried out from there all the treasures of the
house of the LORD and the treasures of the king's house, and he cut in pieces
all the articles of gold which Solomon king of Israel had made in the temple of
the LORD, as the LORD had said. Also he carried into captivity all Jerusalem: all the captains and all the mighty men of valor, ten thousand
captives, and all the craftsmen and smiths. None remained except the poorest
people of the land."
