3 Noah an historical figure? Ark an historical structure? Flood an historical event?

4 And just as it happened in the days of Noah, so it will be also in the days of the Son of Man: they were eating, they were drinking, they were marrying, they were being given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and the flood came and destroyed them all. Luke 17:26-27 Noah an historical figure? Ark an historical structure? Flood an historical event?

5 If Noah, the ark and the flood are all mythological, it is strange that Jesus spoke of them as He did. Did He know they were mythological but tried to make people believe there were not? Did He think they were historical matters when in reality they were fairy tales? Noah an historical figure? Ark an historical structure? Flood an historical event?

6 Noah The biblical Noah Found favor in God’s eyes 6:8 Found favor in God’s eyes 6:8 Righteous, blameless in his time, walked with God 6:9 Righteous, blameless in his time, walked with God 6:9 Did all God commanded him 6:22; 7:5,9,16 Did all God commanded him 6:22; 7:5,9,16 His faith led him to obey Heb. 11:7 His faith led him to obey Heb. 11:7 Condemned the world Heb. 11:7 Condemned the world Heb. 11:7 Prepared ark in reverence for God’s will Prepared ark in reverence for God’s will Became an heir of righteousness Heb. 11:7 Became an heir of righteousness Heb. 11:7 A preacher of righteousness 2 Pet. 2:5 A preacher of righteousness 2 Pet. 2:5 Esteemed highly with Daniel and Job Ezek. 14:14,20 Esteemed highly with Daniel and Job Ezek. 14:14,20

7 Noah in the movie Got his idea for building the ark as a result of drinking an hallucinogenic tea given to him by his grandfather Methuselah. Very nearly—with a maniacal look on his face and a crazed tone of voice---carried out his threat to kill his twin granddaughters with a knife held precariously close to their innocent faces.

8 Noah in the movie Got his idea for building the ark as a result of drinking an hallucinogenic tea given to him by his grandfather Methuselah. Very nearly—with a maniacal look on his face and a crazed tone of voice---carried out his threat to kill his twin granddaughters with a knife held precariously close to their innocent faces. A fair assessment of Noah? “ daring, digging deep to develop a bold interpretation of a tale which, in the original, offers a lot of room for speculation and invention… an arresting piece of filmmaking… fresh look at an elemental Bible story” (hollywoodreporter.com)

9 Martin Luther King, Jr. in a movie Got his inspiration for the civil rights marches from smoking marijuana. Threatened to murder innocent babies. A fair assessment of Noah? “ daring, digging deep to develop a bold interpretation of a tale which, in the original, offers a lot of room for speculation and invention… an arresting piece of filmmaking… fresh look at an elemental Bible story” (hollywoodreporter.com)

10 Ark What did the ark look like? How many square feet? How many animals taken aboard? Big enough to hold all those animals?

11 14 Make for yourself an ark of gopher wood; you shall make the ark with rooms, and shall cover it inside and out with pitch. 15 This is how you shall make it: the length of the ark three hundred cubits, its breadth fifty cubits, and its height thirty cubits. 16 You shall make a window for the ark, and finish it to a cubit from the top; and set the door of the ark in the side of it; you shall make it with lower, second, and third decks. Gen. 6:14-16

12 450’ long x 75’ wide x 45’ high

13 Ark’s estimated capacity is equivalent to 20 standard NBA courts or 100,000 square feet

14 Could hold 569 railroad stock cars

15 19 And of every living thing of all flesh, you shall bring two of every kind into the ark, to keep them alive with you; they shall be male and female. 20 Of the birds after their kind, and of the animals after their kind, of every creeping thing of the ground after its kind, two of every kind will come to you to keep them alive. 21 As for you, take for yourself some of all food which is edible, and gather it to yourself; and it shall be for food for you and for them. Gen. 6:19-21

16 Could an ark of this size hold all those animals, food and people ?

17 Aquatic creatures didn’t need to go on ark The adult size of all large creatures (elephants, e.g.) didn’t need to be taken Estimates range from 2,000 to 35,000 sheep-sized animals needed to be taken aboard, taking up less than half of the space with more than enough room left over for food.

18 Flood Darren Aronofsky, “Noah” writer and director “It's in Genesis,” he told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour in an interview that aired Tuesday. “Noah is saving the animals; he's not out there saving innocent babies, he's saving the animals, he's saving creation.In Genesis 2:15, the first thing that God tells Adam to do is to tend and to keep the garden. It’s right there in Genesis.” “It's in Genesis,” he told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour in an interview that aired Tuesday. “Noah is saving the animals; he's not out there saving innocent babies, he's saving the animals, he's saving creation. In Genesis 2:15, the first thing that God tells Adam to do is to tend and to keep the garden. It’s right there in Genesis.” “It was very clear to us that there was an environmental message. To pull that message out of it, we think, would have been more of an editing job than just sort of representing what's there.”

19 Flood Darren Aronofsky, “Noah” writer and director “It is ‘the first cautionary tale,’ he told Amanpour. “If you are wicked, if you fill the world with wickedness, you will get punished.” “And if you look at what's happening right now, the fact that here we are today and that U.N. report came out – you know, it's very powerful.” “The water is rising, and we already saw it once,” Aronofsky said. “We are living the second chance that was given to Noah.” environmental-wacko/

20 Flood 5 Then the Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great on the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually… 11 Now the earth was corrupt in the sight of God, and the earth was filled with violence. 12 God looked on the earth, and behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted their way upon the earth. 13 Then God said to Noah, "The end of all flesh has come before Me; for the earth is filled with violence because of them; and behold, I am about to destroy them with the earth… 17 Behold, I, even I am bringing the flood of water upon the earth, to destroy all flesh in which is the breath of life, from under heaven; everything that is on the earth shall perish. Gen. 6:5, 11-13, 17

21 Noah a righteous man Ark large enough Flood was to punish sin
