Interesting that the whole concept of empire -- with which we've been saddled ever since -- seems to emerge in that very region.

It doesn't much matter whether it is a democracy (as so many empires were originally), or whether it was gathered under one "leader" -- the concept of control -- all (the world) unified by force is the same.

Yes, I think you're on to something -- this is a religion.

Curious if we're going to Ur next.

I hadn't thought of it in these terms, but this reading seems to hold for large portions of Genesis.

I agree that there is a whole bunch that hits this theme. I have studied the first 11 chapters of Genesis more throughly than the rest. I expect to hit on some key stories in the OT. I would love to hear of any other biblical stories or insights others may have as we move through.

Thanks for hanging with me on this!
