“The tower of Babel is regarded by all scholars as one of Mesopotamia’s famous man-made sacred mountains -a ziggurat. Ziggurats were divine abodes, places where Mesopotamians believed haven and earth intersected. The nature of this structure makes evident the purpose in building it – to bring the divine down to earth. The biblical writer wastes no time in linking this act to the earlier divine transgression of Genesis 6:1-4. That passage sought to portray the giant quasi-divine Babylonian culture heroes (the apkallus) who survived the flood as ‘men of renown” or more literally, ‘men of the name (shem).
Those who built the tower of Babel wanted to do so to ‘make a name (shem) for themselves. The building of the tower of Babel meant perpetuating Babylonian religious knowledge and substituting the rule of Babel’s gods for rule by Yahweh. Yahweh would have none of it.”
