Babylon / Babylonian(s)

 

Pronunciation:  BAB-ih-lawn

Occurrences:  3
First Reference:
 Yeshua 10:69

 

For in ancient times there strode about the earth Tiglath-Pileser, the Assyrian, and Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon who, like young lions, thought to devour unto themselves the whole earth.

 

 

See:  Babel, Nebuchadnezzar

 

Summary:  A major city-state of ancient Mesopotamia, Babylon possibly derived its name from the city referred to in scripture as Babel. The known history of Babylon presents the rise and fall of various Babylonian dynasties.

 

While Yeshua was teaching at the house of Demitrius in the city of Hippos, he made reference to several builders of empire, including: Tiglath-Pileser, Nebuchadnezzar, Cyrus of Persia, and Alexander of Macedonia. In response to a Roman who was heckling Yeshua about his position on slavery, Yeshua mentioned these historical figures to portray the rise and inevitable fall of empires built by those who enslave and take dominion over others (Y:10:60-80).

 

While responding to scribes and Pharisees, Yeshua mentions Babylon in reference to Israel’s past periods of captivity (Y:16:13-14; Y:26:6-72).

 

 

Notes/References:

 

And though Moses led all Israel out of Egypt unto the promised land, and although he gave unto you the law also, yet were your fathers delivered into captivity;

First unto the Assyrians, and then unto the Babylonians, for you were ever disobedient and filled with mischief.

Yeshua 16:13-14

 

69. But Yeshua rebuked him, saying: “I tell you that in the last day shall there ascend unto God a multitude of harlots and sinners from Jerusalem, being justified by a great many tears.

70. But of Jerusalem, who can speak? For you know yourselves how that Jerusalem was taken away captive in the days of Zedikiah, king of Judah.

71. For whose sake then were your fathers taken bound unto Babylon, for harlots or some other?

72. I tell you truly that Jerusalem was brought low not by harlots, but rather by hypocrites who saw not the sin of their own ways.

Yeshua 26:69-72


 

[...] In 63 CE, Jude was made a member of the apostleship, replacing Simon Zelotes who was martyred in Babylon.

Azrael’s Commentary - Jude; para. 4

 

[...] Simon Zelotes was stoned to death in Babylon in 62 CE; his body was thrown in the city dump for wild animals to eat.
