Genesis: God's Story, Our Story
Genesis 11 | The Tower of Babel

After the flood and God’s renewal of creation in his covenant with Noah, humanity again fell away, rejecting God and seeking to build their own name apart from God. In the building of the Tower of Babel, human hubris climaxes and God’s judgment is brought – the scattering of languages and humanity. But even in justice, God is merciful and accomplishes his greater purposes to spread his presence throughout the world.
