An Introduction by Trey Smith
About this Film
Genesis III | Secrets of Sumerian Stones | Run-time: 2 hours and 4 minutes
Secrets of Sumerian Stones is about ancient Sumer, Akkad, and the Book of Genesis.
Secrets of Sumerian Stones is part three of the Genesis Documentary Study series (Part 3) by Trey Smith and the God in Nutshell Project. In this documentary, we will examine ancient Sumer (Sumeria) and tablets from Sumer and Akkad. Sumer and Akkad (later ancient Assyria) are the first civilizations following the flood of Noah.
In this documentary, we begin the examination of the Sumerian texts, and how they point toward the Biblical account of Genesis directly following the Flood of Noah. Also, we will take a journey into the origins and history leading toward Nimrod and the Tower of Babel.
Beneath is a semi-short video presentation by Trey Smith about ancient Sumer, Akkad, and Genesis. Many of these presentations for the films, as seen beneath, dive deeper into the subjects of the documentaries themselves. Please enjoy!

Sumerian King List Basic Outline
Sumerian Kings List Three Opening Sections SummaryFor simplest understanding I have divided up the first three major sections of the Sumerian Kings List into these three parts: 1) Preflood (lines 1-39 of the list)
- This section covers eight (8) antediluvian kings that reigned for a total, according to their Sumerian numeric system, of: 241,200 years. This section is often compared to the ten (10) generations from Adam to Noah as it does have both similarities and differences.
- This section is generally thought to be a dynasty or consecutive list of kingships. However, it appears more like (or similar to) what is found in Genesis 10, a listing of families and tribes, sons and grandsons, founding what would later make-up the beginning small brick built cities later called: Sumer and Akkad.
- This section we see a consolidation of the power of princes and tribes and kings. We see the rise of the Temple on Inanna (E-ana), the diminishment of the city of Kish (Cush), and the naming titles change to Lord (En) and King (Lugal) in the direct linage of the “sun-god” Utu (likely Ham the Biblical father of Cush).
- So, just as Genesis 10:8-12 it reads; “Cush was the father of Nimrod, who became a mighty warrior on the earth. 9 He was a mighty hunter before the Lord; that is why it is said, “Like Nimrod, a mighty hunter before the Lord.” 10 The first centers of his kingdom were Babylon, Uruk, Akkad and Kalneh, in Shinar. 11 From that land he went to Assyria, where he built Nineveh, Rehoboth Ir, Calah 12 and Resen, which is between Nineveh and Calah—which is the great city.
- The same rise and consolidation of power over the tribes, princes and tongues witnessed in both Genesis 10 and 11 appears nearly identical to lines 95-133 of the Sumerian Kings List.
