Since I saw it my hope has been that the “NOAH” movie that hit theaters March 28, 2014 would be a catalyst to get folks to read or re-read and share the Bible, I am so excited to report that YouVersion, the Bible app that has been downloaded by over 135,000,000 users, has reported a 300% spike from users who have specifically gone back or referenced the old testament since “NOAH” was released in theaters last week. In short, the movie has inspired people regardless of their personal stance on the movie to go back, re-read the old testament, and share the reference with their friends and colleagues.
With all the controversy that this film has received I am happy to see people showing an interest in the Bible. I want to encourage you to continue to point people to God’s word for the true historical account of Noah in the Bible.
To read about it in the Bible I suggest you take a look at these passages:
- Cain and Seth (Tubalcain and Noah) – Genesis 4:13-26; Genesis 5:1-32
- Why the Flood and The Giants – Genesis 6:4-7, 11-12
- The Ark
- The description – Genesis 6:13-16.
- The purpose – Genesis 6:17.
- What to take onto the ark – Genesis 6:18-21; Genesis 7:2-9
- Noah and his family – Genesis 7:13; 22-23; 8:16
- The Olive Branch (leaf) – Genesis 8:11
- The Rainbow – Genesis 9:11-17
