(Gn 6:14-19) For 40 days it rains; a great flood covers the earth and “everything that moved on earth perished” except for Noah and everyone with him on the ark. (Gn 7:23) After the waters recede Noah builds an altar and sacrifices burnt offerings to the God of Israel, who smells the pleasing aroma of the sacrifices and vows to Noah and his family “never again will I destroy all living creatures as I have done”. (Gn 8:20-21) The God of Israel uses the rainbow as a sign of this covenant never again to destroy the earth by flood. (Gn 9:12-16) He tells Noah to subdue the land and “be fruitful and multiply”. (Gn 8:16-17) Noah plants a vineyard and becomes drunk.
Adam and Eve eat the fruit and this frustrates God and he brought them out of Eden. Adam and Eve had two kids, Cain and Abel. Cain got mad at Abel one day and decided to kill him. God then made Cain leave his home. Once humankind turns bad, God wants to destroy it and tells his friend Noah to build an ark so that his family and animals will be
She said “With the help of the Lord I have brought forth a man.” Later she gave birth to his brother Abel. (Genesis 4:1-2) Abel was in charge of keeping the flocks while Cain was in charge of soil. Both brothers gave offerings up to the Lord, but Cain and his offering he did not look with favor. Cain became very angry. Cain said to his brother “Let’s go out to the field.” While they were in the field, Cain attacked his brother Abel and killed him.
God later parts the Red Sea to allow the Hebrews to flee from the Egyptian army. After the deliverance of the Hebrews, God calls Moses to Mount Sinai and gives him his law. Later, The Hebrews move toward the promised land of Canaan. There they send out Spies from all twelve tribes, ten come back and say there is no chance of conquest and two say to follow God’s will. The Hebrews choose to follow the majority of tribe leaders and this leads to forty years of wandering for rebelling against Gods wishes.
- 1 – Willie F. Gibson Bible 113 Old Testament Keith Goad November 28, 2009 What was the role of the judges in Israel during the settlement period? How did they address the problems? How effective were they? After being in bondage and slavery under Pharaohs leadership for 400 years, God had a plan of deliverance for all mankind from bondage and sin, to freedom, and a personal relationship with Him. The Israelites came down to Egypt during a time when a famine was raging in the Biblical Near East.

The Epic of Gilgamesh and Noah’s Ark have lots of similarities and differences. Both had to do with floods because of how people were being disobedient. Both also had one man and their families survive the floods. In the Epic of Gilgamesh, Enlil was frustrated by the noise on Earth, so he gave Utnaphishtim to survive the flood. Enlil told him to build an arc so that he could save humanity from perishing.
I believe we think this because in the bible we are taught that god takes time to create and mold each individual. In the story of Popul VUH we are given generic creations multiple times. Where there is a Noah or Adam and Eve, in opposite there is they, human, daughter, or mold of the maker. When displeased with his work God created the great flood to wipe out anything not worthy in his sight. When displeased with their creations in Popul VUH the experiments were harshly removed, naturally they would become food.
In Greek Joshua means Jesus. Joshua was encouraged by God to be strong and have good courage Joshua 1:6-7. Israel was prepared to cross the river Jordon and for the destruction of the wall in Jericho by their leader Joshua. The children of Israel were given their inheritance by Joshua as the Lord had said. Joshua was one of the 12 that was sent out to spy out the land of cannon.
The first one is why the flood happened; in story three the flood happened because too many people were rejecting the Gods. This made them angry and so the God Ea warned a man of Shuruppak, that a flood was coming and he should tear down his house and build an ark. But in story four, the lord commands Noah to build an arc, and to get two of every species and bring them on his ark. Another significant difference was how much time they spent on the ark. In all of the articles the time varied, in story three they were on the boat for seven days, but in story four Noah was on his ark for forty days and nights.
