Wow! What Happened at Babel?

Tower of Babel, a scene from God's Story. (illustration copyrighted).Do you know someone who speaks a different language? It can be fun to try to communicate with people from other countries. It can also be frustrating. When you really want to tell somebody something that is important, but you don’t know the right words… it can make you want to scream. Why do people speak different languages? A long time ago, when everybody spoke the same language, the people joined together to rebel against God. The way that God slowed down their rebellious activities was to cause everybody to speak different languages. That made it much harder for people to cooperate in their evil deeds; they couldn’t understand each other. Find the hidden words about this below, then read about the Tower of Babel in Genesis 11:1-9 and don’t miss our illustrated summary.
