The Winged Bull Of Nimrod And Part Of The Temple Of Baal Are Being Displayed In The Colosseum In Rome
by Michael Snyder, End Of The American Dream:
If you thought having “the harbinger of Baal” in New York City was bad, wait until you hear what they are doing in Rome. A reproduction of a winged bull from the ancient city of Nimrud, Iraq and a recreation of part of the ceiling from the Temple of Bel (Baal) are being put on display in the Colosseum in Rome, Italy. This exhibit has been entitled “Rising From the Ashes: Ebla, Nimrud, Palmyra“, and it is being sponsored by UNESCO. As I will discuss below, the statue of the winged bull from Nimrud and the Temple of Bel both have direct links to ancient Babylon and a very insidious character from the Bible known as Nimrod. Symbols have meaning, and to have these symbols erected at one of the most famous landmarks in Rome is more than just a little bit disturbing.
From ancient times, Nimrod and the various pagan gods that were based on Nimrod were often represented as human-animal hybrids. In this case, a bull with a human head that also has wings is known as a “lamassu”. According to
Wikipedia, lamassu statues can currently be found “at the Gate of All Nations at Persepolis in Iran, the British Museum in London, the Musée du Louvre in Paris, the National Museum of Iraq in Baghdad, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and the Oriental Institute, Chicago.”
The lamassu statue that has been put on display in Rome is a full scale reproduction of one that was destroyed by ISIS in the city of Nimrud, Iraq. The following comes from an article about this exhibit in the New York Times…
A statue of a human-headed winged bull from the Northwest Palace in Nimrud, Iraq, that was bulldozed by the Islamic State last year to great outcry has been faithfully recreated using modern technology and put on exhibit at the Colosseum in Rome to spur discussion of the possible reconstruction of war-torn archaeological sites.
But it isn’t just the statue that has a link to Nimrod. The city where this lamassu statue once stood is actually named “Nimrud”, and as Wikipedia has pointed out, experts believe that the name “Nimrud” was derived from the Biblical character “Nimrod”…
Archeologists believe that the city was given the name Nimrud in modern times after the Biblical Nimrod, a legendary hunting hero. The city was identified as the Biblical city of Calah (Hebrew Kelah (כלח), Greek Khalakh (χαλαχ)), also written Kalhu, first referred to alongside Nimrod in Genesis 10, by Henry Rawlinson in 1850 on the basis of a possible interpretation of the city’s cuneiform proper name as “Levekh”.
And if the original name of the ancient city was indeed “Calah”, then it is quite appropriate that the city has now been named after Nimrod, because he is the one that actually founded “Calah” in the first place according to the Bible. The following is what Genesis 10:8-12 says in the Modern English Version…
8 Cush was the father of Nimrod. He became a mighty one on the earth. 9 He was a mighty hunter before the Lord. Therefore it is said, “Even like Nimrod the mighty hunter before the Lord.” 10 The beginning of his kingdom was Babel,[b] Uruk, Akkad, and Kalneh in the land of Shinar. 11 From that land he went to Assyria and built Nineveh, the city Rehoboth Ir, and Calah, 12 and Resen between Nineveh and Calah (that is the principal city).
Nimrod was the grandson of Noah, and according to tradition he played a major role in turning humanity away from God after the Flood. He founded many of the greatest cities of the ancient Middle East, and for a time he ruled over virtually all of the known world. In other words, he created the very first “New World Order” in the post-flood era. And according to Josephus, it was Nimrod that initiated the construction of the Tower of Babel…
