Was Nimrod a giant?

Scripture does not discuss his stature; just that he was a ‘mighty hunter before the Lord’.

(Some speculate that he was hunting people, not animals.)

Genesis 10 .......8 Cush was the father c of Nimrod, who became a mighty warrior on the earth. 9 He was a mighty hunter before the Lord; that is why it is said, “Like Nimrod, a mighty hunter before the Lord.” 10 The first centers of his kingdom were Babylon, Uruk, Akkad and Kalneh, in d Shinar. e 11 From that land he went to Assyria, where he built Nineveh, Rehoboth Ir, f Calah 12 and Resen, which is between Nineveh and Calah—which is the great city.

Well, I’m going out on a limb here and do something that is very seldom done in analyzing scripture or trying to make a point with the scriptures that people have specifically extracted to make any particular point

I’m going to take the above scriptures in Genesis in context!

Ahem …. The first part of that scripture in genesis speaks of Nimrod is a mighty warrior, which means he makes war against his real or perceived enemies, or just people who he likes to rob and take their stuff.

( …. nowhere in the Bible, or any previous society, or current civilizations is warfare considered murder……)

In the very next sentence it says he was a mighty hunter, which implies to me that he was the aggressor. Whether or not that is the actual case, that comment referenced is in the very next sentence …… with no conflicting commentary to indicate that should not be taken in context with the first sentence.

The scripture nowhere discusses his stature, so whether he was short, tall, fat, skinny, or had 12 legs and the head of a chicken it’s all a matter of imagination and speculation.

Nothing more.….. and of course, that is why in no farm or backyard anywhere in the world, will you ever find a chicken named Nimrod.

    • FIFA's collaboration with Algorand represents a significant milestone for blockchain technology. Algorand will serve as the official blockchain platform for FIFA, supporting events such as the FIFA Women's World Cup in Australia and New Zealand in 2023 and the FIFA World Cup in Qatar in 2022. This partnership is poised to enhance FIFA's digital asset management while boosting Algorand's visibility through advertising and promotional opportunities. On another note, I've been tuning into African football recently. The match between Kanifing East FC and Latrikunda United was unexpectedly impressive. African football often goes underappreciated, yet the skill and enthusiasm in these matches are evident. We can expect even more significant development and excitement in African football with increased attention and support.
