Genesis 11 closes out our first major section of the 10 OT periods. Let’s review:
Period I – Age of Beginnings
The Spread of Sin
We see here in chapter 11 the culmination of this last theme. Even after the flood we see that man’s heart sought glory (11:4) apart from God. The bible is telling a story. All of scripture builds upon the themes of these first 11 chapters, solidifying our universal problem with sin and overwhelming need for a Savior. Help is coming in the form of God’s promises in chapter 12!
