Myth? Legend? What do you all think?
Seems very interesting either way.
other Biblical figures attest to the authenticity of Noah and its account, Peter and Christ himself , just by way of example.
(Matthew 24:36-42) “Concerning that day and hour nobody knows, neither the angels of the heavens nor the Son, but only the Father. For just as the days of Noah were, so the presence of the Son of man will be. For as they were in those days before the flood, eating and drinking, men marrying and women being given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark; and they took no note until the flood came and swept them all away, so the presence of the Son of man will be.
what shall those who profess to be Christian do? state that Christ himself was a liar? that cannot be! that Christ was merely using the account in an allegorical sense? that cannot be either for he held that Gods word was truth. Therefore if you aqre a professing Christian it seems quite clear and plain that you must accept that either the flood happened or Christ is talking nonsense.
(Hebrews 11:7) 7 By faith Noah, after being given divine warning of things not yet beheld, showed godly fear and constructed an ark for the saving of his household;
and through this [faith] he condemned the world, and he became an heir of the righteousness that is according to faith.
this time its Paul reiterating the validity of the Noah account, specifically detailing that Noah indeed built an ark.
thirdly, Peter draws a comparison between a doomed generation and the generation of Noah's time,
(2 Peter 2:5) . . .he did not hold back from punishing an ancient world, but kept Noah, a preacher of righteousness, safe with seven others when he brought a deluge upon a world of ungodly people;
what are those who profess to be Christians going to do, it was clearly accepted by Christ, taught be the apostles, recorded under inspiration in Gods word the Bible, and we have not even touched upon the other evidence for its validity.
