Babylon was a bustling city state in ancient times founded in 1894 BC by an Amorite dynasty. It was a located in what is now Iraq about 85 kilometers south of Baghdad. All that remains of the famous city is a mound of mud-brick building remains. The city was built on the Euphrates river & it was divided in equal parts on each side of the river with steep embankments holding at bay the seasonal flood waters. Eventually Babylon eclipsed Nippur as the holy city of Mesopotamia. Babylon continued to grow in size & grandeur. Mesopotamia eventually became known as Babylonia under the rule of Hammurabi who created the short lived Babylonian Empire.

Eventually the city would fall after the death of Hammurabi. It would come under Assyrian, Kassite & Elamite domination. It would come to be destroyed & then would be re-built by the Assyrians. It would once again rise as the seat of the neo-Babylonian empire from 608 – 539 BC. The hanging gardens of Babylon were once a wonder to behold. They would win recognition as one of the 7 wonders that the ancient world had to offer. Many people would travel from far & wide to see this spectacle. Unfortunately, the city was still ill-fated & fell. It came under the rule of the Achaemenid, Seleucid, Parthian, Roman & Sassanid empires after that. At first the area did not practice agriculture preffering the semi nomadic life style. They were sheep herders not farmers until the grain merchants rose to prominence & established their own independent dynasties.

Babylon appears throughout the Hebrew bible prominently in several prophecies. That is not the end of biblical prophecy regarding the area, the city is mentioned again in the New Testament. It is in Revolution that the city is discussed again. This section of the bible refers to Babylon in Apocalyptic literature far after it had ceased to be a major political center. It has been hypothesized by some scholars that these verses of the bible could refer to the roman empire which controlled the are for some time. While others have found a much more significant way they decipher the writings.
