Wonder why Pope Francis picked Iraq to visit in March 2021.

On March 5, 2021 Pope Francis, leader of the Catholic Church, embarked on a historic four-day trip to Iraq, where he met with officials, religious leaders and ordinary Iraqis of all faiths. Francis is the first sitting pope to visit Iraq, but not for lack of effort. Both Popes John Paul II and Benedict XVI attempted to visit, but could not due to conflict and war within Iraq.




Very interesting, Heart Touching and Educating.


1. The garden of Eden was in Iraq. Present day, some people insist that the actual site of the Garden of Eden is located in Al-Qurna around the confluence of the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers. Al-Qurna is a small town in southern Iraq, located 74 km (46 miles) north of the city of Basra.


2. Mesopotamia which is now Iraq was the cradle of civilization! Often called the “Cradle of Civilization,” Iraq was home to ancient Mesopotamian peoples who developed the world’s first writing, agriculture and cities, between 10,000 and 3,000 BCE.


3. Noah built the ark in Iraq.


4. The Tower of Babel was in Iraq: The Tower of Babel stood at the very heart of the vibrant metropolis of Babylon in what is today Iraq. It was a city of open squares, broad boulevards and narrow, winding lanes.

5. Abraham was from Ur, which is in Southern Iraq! Ur Kasdim (Hebrew: אוּר כַּשְׂדִּים‎ ʾūr Kaśdīm), commonly translated as Ur of the Chaldeans, is a city mentioned in the Hebrew Bible as the birthplace of the Israelite and Ishmaelite patriarch Abraham. In 1862, Henry Rawlinson identified Ur Kaśdim with Tell el-Muqayyar, near Nasiriyah in southern Iraq.


6. Isaac’s wife Rebekah is from Nahor which is in Iraq.

This was about halfway along the Fertile Crescent between Mesopotamia and the Mediterranean, in what is now southeastern Turkey. In this region, Nahor and his family settled except for his brother Haran, who had died sometime ago back in Ur.

7. Jacob met Rachel in Iraq.

Where did Jacob meet Rachel for the first time?

(4-10) Jacob meets Rachel at the well.

And Jacob said to them, “My brethren, where are you from?” And they said, “We are from Haran.” Then he said to them, “Do you know Laban the son of Nahor?” And they said, “We know him.” So he said to them, “Is he well?” And they said, “He is well. And look, his daughter Rachel is coming with the sheep.” Then he said, “Look, it is still high day; it is not time for the cattle to be gathered together. Water the sheep, and go and feed them.” But they said, “We cannot until all the flocks are gathered together, and they have rolled the stone from the well’s mouth; then we water the sheep.” Now while he was still speaking with them, Rachel came with her father’s sheep, for she was a shepherdess. And it came to pass, when Jacob saw Rachel the daughter of Laban his mother’s brother, and the sheep of Laban his mother’s brother, that Jacob went near and rolled the stone from the well’s mouth, and watered the flock of Laban his mother’s brother.

8. Jonah preached in Nineveh, which is in Iraq.



9. Assyria which is in Iraq conquered the ten tribes of Israel.

In 721 B.C. Assyria swept out of the north, captured the Northern Kingdom of Israel, and took the ten tribes into captivity. From there they became lost to history. Assyria, named for the god Ashur (highest in the pantheon of Assyrian gods), was located in the Mesopotamian plain.

Who conquered the 10 tribes of Israel?

Assyrian King Shalmaneser V

Conquered by the Assyrian King Shalmaneser V, they were exiled to upper Mesopotamia and Medes, today modern Syria and Iraq. The Ten Tribes of Israel have never been seen since.

10. Amos cried out in Iraq!

Where did Amos take place?

Tekoa: Tekoa (Hebrew: תְּקוֹעַ) is an Israeli settlement organized as a community settlement in the West Bank, located 20 km northeast of Hebron, 16 km south of Jerusalem and in the immediate vicinity of the Palestinian village of Tuqu’. It falls under the jurisdiction of Gush Etzion Regional Council.

Composition. Amos prophesied during the reign of Jeroboam II of Israel, and of Uzziah of Judah, which places him in the first half of the 8th century BC. According to the book’s superscription (Amos 1:1) he was from Tekoa, a town in Judah south of Jerusalem, but his prophetic mission was in the northern kingdom.

11. Babylon which is in Iraq destroyed Jerusalem.

Nebuchadnezzar II

Nebuchadnezzar II is known as the greatest king of the Chaldean dynasty of Babylonia. He conquered Syria and Palestine and made Babylon a splendid city. He destroyed the Temple of Jerusalem and initiated the Babylonian Captivity of the Jewish population.

Archaeological evidence supports the biblical account that Jerusalem was destroyed in 587 or 586 BC. Archaeological research has shown that the Babylonians systematically destroyed the city with fire and that the city wall was pulled down.

12. Daniel was in the lion’s den in Iraq!

What country was Daniel in the lions den?


Composition and structure. It is generally accepted that the Book of Daniel originated as a collection of folktales among the Babylonian captivity, the Jewish community living in Babylon and Mesopotamia, in the Persian and Hellenistic periods (5th to 2nd centuries BC).

13. The 3 Hebrew children were in the fire in Iraq.


14. Belshazzar, the King of Babylon saw the “writing on the wall” in Iraq.

During a feast, Babylonians eat and drink from the holy vessels of Yahweh’s temple, and “king” Belshazzar sees a hand writing the words mene, mene, tekel, upharsin on a wall. Daniel interprets the writing as a judgment from Yahweh, the god of Israel, foretelling the fall of Babylon.

15. Nebuchadnezzar, King of Babylon, carried the Jews captive into Iraq.

In 587 BC, Nebuchadnezzar destroyed the Kingdom of Judah, and its capital, Jerusalem. The destruction of Jerusalem led to the Babylonian captivity as the city’s population, and people from the surrounding lands, were deported to Babylonia.

16. Ezekiel preached in Iraq.


17. The 3 wise men were from Iraq.

The History behind the Three Kings/Wise Men/Magi in the Christmas Story. After Jesus was born, Wise Men came to look for Him, probably from an area which is now in either Iraq, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, or an area in what’s now southern Turkey, northern Syria.

18. Peter preached in Iraq.

According to Origen (184–253) and Eusebius, Peter “after having first founded the church at Antioch, went away to Rome preaching the Gospel, and he also, after [presiding over] the church in Antioch, presided over that of Rome until his death”.

1 Peter 5:13 She who is at Babylon, who is likewise chosen, sends you greetings, and so does Mark, my son.

19. The “Empire of Man” described in Revelation is called Babylon which was a city in Iraq!


Israel is the nation most often mentioned in the Bible. But do you know which nation is second? It is Iraq!
However, that is not the name that is used in the Bible. The names used in the Bible are Babylon, Chaldean, Land of Shinar, and Mesopotamia. The word Mesopotamia means between the two rivers, more exactly between the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers. The name Iraq, means country with deep roots. Indeed Iraq is a country with deep roots and is a very significant country in the Bible. Here’s why:

👉Eden was in Iraq-Genesis 2:10-14
👉Adam & Eve were created in Iraq-Genesis 2:7-8
👉Satan made his first recorded appearance in Iraq-Genesis 3:1-6
👉Nimrod established Babylon & Tower of Babel was built in Iraq-Genesis 10:8-97; 11:1-4
👉The confusion of the languages took place in Iraq-Genesis 11:5-11
👉Abraham came from a city in Iraq-Genesis 11:31; Acts 7:2-4
👉Isaac’s bride came from Iraq-Genesis 24:3-4; 10
👉Jacob spent 20 years in Iraq-Genesis 27:42-45; 31:38
👉The first world Empire was in Iraq-Daniel 1:1-2;2:36-38
👉The greatest revival in history was in a city in Iraq-Jonah 3
👉The events of the book of Esther took place in Iraq-Esther
👉The book of Nahum was a prophecy against a city in Iraq-Nahum
👉The book or Revelation has prophecies against Babylon, which was the old name for the nation of Iraq-Revelation 17 &18

No other nation, except Israel, that has more history and prophecy associated to it than Iraq.

Surprised??? 🤔

Thank The Bible Researchers!!!
