Hammurabi, Abraham, Ramses II, Joseph, Nebuchadnezzar
Transcript of Hammurabi, Abraham, Ramses II, Joseph, Nebuchadnezzar
These five people were either the bane of another people's existence, or they created something entirely new for their time.
Five historically important people
King of the Amorites
Capital city is Bablyon
Second greatest empire in Mesopotamia
Wrote out a list of laws for the people to follow- very similar to Old Testament law.
Came from Ur
Probably originally a follower of polytheism
Called out for a Holy purpose
Became the father of the Jews, whose capital is still Jerusalem
Pharaoh, King of Egypt
Most powerful man in the world
Defeated the Hittites at the Battle of Qadesh
Empire stretched from the Nile River to the entire Fertile Crescent
Second youngest son of Jacob (Israel)
Sold into slavery by his brothers
Became second in command of all Egypt
Brought Israel to a safe place
King of Babylon
Sacked Jerusalem, took the Jews captive
Brought Babylon to the height of its power
All of these people made important marks on history, whether banefully, or otherwise.
