God’s ultimate purpose for the different ethnicities and languages in the world

God’s ultimate purpose at the Tower of Babel (Genesis 10-11) and the creation of ethnicities and languages – for His people to reach out to those different nations (Genesis 12:3; 22:18; Psalm 67; 96:3, Isaiah 49:6; Matthew 28:19), because He gets greater glory by bringing gospel unity in diversity. (Acts 17:26; Revelation 5:9; 7:9)

Here is an excellent short explanation of the Tower of Babel and the beginning of the different ethnicities in the world.  We are all one human race, brothers and sisters of one another and we all descended from Adam and Eve; and we all descended from the three sons of Noah and their wives.  The genetic code for all the nations and ethnicities was all within the three sons of Noah and their wives.

About Ken Temple

I am a follower of Jesus Christ. I am a sinner who has been saved by the grace of God alone (Ephesians 2:8-9), through faith alone (Galatians 2:16; Romans 3:28; 4:1-16), in Christ alone (John 14:6). But a true faith does not stay alone, it should result in change, fruit, good works, and deeper levels of repentance and hatred of my own sins of selfishness and pride. I am not better than you! I still make mistakes and sin, but the Lord is working on me, conforming me to His character. (Romans 8:28-29; 2 Corinthians 3:16-18) When I do sin, I hate the sin as it is an affront to God, and seek His forgiveness in repentance. (Mark 1:15; 2 Corinthians 7:7-10; Colossians 3:5-16 ) Praise God for His love for sinners (Romans 5:8), shown by the voluntary coming of Christ and His freely laying down His life for us (John 10:18), becoming flesh/human (John 1:1-5; 1:14; Philippians 2:5-8), dying for sins of people from all nations, tribes, and cultures (Revelation 5:9), on the cross, in history, rising from the dead (Romans 10:9-10; Matthew 28, Mark 16:1-8; Luke 24; John 20-21; 1 Corinthians chapter 15). His resurrection from the dead proved that Jesus is the Messiah, the eternal Son of God, the word of God from eternity past; and that He was all the gospels say He was and that He is truth and the life and the way to salvation. (John 14:6)
