Babylon – index of articles

The Babylonian Empire was relatively short lived (626–539 B.C.), but it played a large role in biblical history. We have written about all of the Babylonian kings mentioned in the Bible. In this post I am pulling together an index collection of these articles to make it easy for one studying about the Babylonian captivity to locate all of them in one convenient place.

The dragon is a composite creature with the head of a fire-spewing dragon, body and tail of a serpent, front feet of a feline, and back feet of a bird. This provides a good illustration of the apocalyptic language found in the Old Testament prophets. Photo by Ferrell Jenkins.

The dragon made of chrome brick on the Ishtar Gate from ancient Babylon was an emblem of Marduk (Museum of the Ancient Near East, Berlin).

This provides a good illustration of the apocalyptic imagery found in the Old Testament prophets and the book of Revelation. Photo by Ferrell Jenkins.

The articles below, especially those with an * after the title, are considered minor references. They still might provide some helpful material and photos for the Bible student and teacher.

I trust this list will be helpful to students and teachers alike.

In the future, when I write something about Babylon I will try to remember to include a link in this index. I would appreciate learning if you find this index helpful.

One response to “Babylon – index of articles

  1. Mr. Jenkins, I have followed your blogs for some time now, and I really appreciate them and thank you so much. A friend of mine and I are studying the exile of the Judeans now on an online Bible study by Gaylin Weimers and this list of articles is excellent and will really enhance our study. The photographs are excellent in helping us understand what God’s Word says about this subject…..and many others you report on.  Also I have been a fan of BiblePlaces for a long time too. I have been to israel 5 times so I have a certain amount of understanding just from being in Israel, but the Bible covers so much more than the land of Israel. Thanks to you and others who report and write blogs and Bible studies, i can get a far greater picture.I am anxious to go back to Israel again, but at this time finacnces seem to be blocking my way. It’s in God’s hands and He will provide a way for me when His time is right. Until then I’ll keep on studying and checking your blogs.God bless you and your ministry of reporting on ” biblical studies, archaeology, travel and photography”.
