How to Use This Course

Babylon appears frequently in our study of history and the Bible. But who were the ancient Babylonians, what were their lives like, and what can we learn from the records they left behind? This class takes a closer look at this ancient empire through text-based lessons, maps, and more.

*Please note, while this course does cover Babylonian mythology, it does so from a Christian worldview. The Babylonian myths are not presented as Truth, simply what the people believed at that time.

Course Introduction

The land of Babylon figures prominently in world history as well as countless passages in the Bible. This ancient history course looks at the daily lives of the ancient Babylonians as well as the mythology they believed and its impact on history.

We’ll also take some time to compare Babylonian stories and how they may have been influenced by Biblical accounts. Come and join us as we investigate this ancient empire.
