Tenochtitlán was an Aztec city that flourished between A.D. 1325 and 1521. Built on an island on Lake Texcoco, it had a system of canals and causeways that supplied the hundreds of thousands of people who lived there.
It was largely destroyed by the Spanish conquistador Hernán Cortés after a siege in 1521, and modern-day Mexico City now lies over much of its remains. In a 1520 letter written to King Charles I of Spain, Cortés described the city that he would soon attack:
“The city is as big as Seville or Cordoba. The main streets are very wide and very straight; some of these are on the land, but the rest and all the smaller ones are half on land, half canals where they paddle their canoes.” (From “An Age of Voyages: 1350-1600,” by Mary Wiesner-Hanks, Oxford University Press, 2005)
Aztec social organization
The people of Tenochtitlán were divided into numerous clan groups called calpulli (which means “big house”), and these in turn consisted of smaller neighborhoods. “Usually, the calpulli was made up of a group of macehaultin (commoner) families led by pipiltin (nobles)” writes California State University professor Manuel Aguilar-Moreno in his book “Handbook to Life in the Aztec World” (Oxford University Press, 2006).
Fray Diego Durán, a Spaniard who lived in Mexico a few decades after Cortés’ conquest, wrote that King Motecuhzoma (or Montezuma) I, who reigned from 1440 to 1469, created an education system where every neighborhood had to have a school or temple to educate youth.
In those places “they will learn religion and correct comportment. They are to do penance, lead hard lives, live with strict morality, practice for warfare, do physical work, fast, endure disciplinary measures, draw blood from different parts of the body, and keep watch at night…” (Translation by Doris Heyden)
Another feature of Tenochtitlán’s society was that it had a strict class system, one that affected the clothes people wore and even the size of the houses they were allowed to build. “Only the great noblemen and valiant warriors are given license to build a house with a second story; for disobeying this law a person receives the death penalty…” Fray Durán wrote.
Among the people considered to be in the lower classes were the porters the city relied on. The lack of wheeled vehicles and pack animals meant that the city’s goods had to be brought in by canoe or human lifting. Surviving depictions show porters carrying loads on their backs with a strap secured to their forehead.
This city is the city Cain built and called it Enoch .
Gen 4:16 So Qayin went out from the presence of יהוה and dwelt in the land of Noḏ on the east of Ěḏen.
Gen 4:17 And Qayin knew his wife, and she conceived and bore Ḥanoḵ. And he built a city, and called the name of the city after the name of his son, Ḥanoḵ.
Enoch, Cains son help create a sacrificial system amongst the people that has led to many remains found from that period that were obviously sacrifices. If one will also notice from the scriptures in the old testament there was plenty of sacrificing going on. The seed of Azreel that was in the garden mentioned in the book of Enoch written by Adam’s son. This I believe is huge because in the scriptures Cain went east “dwelt in the land of Noḏ on the east of Ěḏen” so all we have to do is look West of T-ENOCH- titalan to find Eden.
I encourage all that read this to look into this matter yourself and dont believe nothing I say.
Prove all things and dont trust man, ever.
