The Tower of Babel, in simple terms, was an act of rebellion against God. The story matters because we see what happens when mankind tries to prevent the acts of God, in other words, they go against the will of God. They tried, by their own hands, to create their own ark of salvation, their own fortress.

Essentially, a group of people got together and decided to build their own tower to heaven, thereby making them on a par with God. Upon seeing this, God confuses their language so they can’t communicate with one another and are then are unable to finish the tower. By “confuses their language” we mean, creates multiple languages. This is seen as an explanation as to why there are so many different languages in the world.

The Tower Of Babel appears in the Book Of Genesis.
