The Amazing Table of Nations - Genesis chapters 10 and 11

Even the famous historian Arnold Toynbee, not a believer, had to admit that there is only one place in the whole world where the family tree, or origin, of all nations is given us. Of course that is Genesis chapters ten and eleven. This is no surprise to believers.

You can Google "table of nations" and get a very nice chart. We cannot substitute anything for these wonderful chapters of this wonderful book. And chapter nine tells of Noah's three sons, of whom "the whole Earth was overspread." Even non-believing historians also follow the division of humanity into the three sons of Noah.

And speaking of Noah, I see that one of my favorite actors, Russel Crowe, is starring in The film "Noah". I suspect that the discovery of the ark in Turkey has helped make people aware of our Biblical origins, as much as many would deny it. I'm sure the Hollywood guys will muck it up, but they are doing it, and that is a marvel.
