Some of you are probably wondering why you are reading about Passover on a Christian website. Christians certainly do not sacrifice animals or dabble in blood sacrifice. However, Jesus Christ Became Our Passover Lamb, (1 Corinthians 5:7). We can learn a lot about what that means by understanding the original passover which Christ fulfilled.
We have conclusively documented the Flood of Noah was not global, rather confined to a local region where Noah lived, (see: Was Noah’s Flood Global?). While we have covered numerous topics in this Bible study series, we have some additional thoughts on potential questions that we would like to answer for you.
In this Bible study, we will discover Noah’s Flood was local, and confined to an enclosed basin. We will identify the potential location of Noah’s Flood.
When we think about Noah’s Flood, we often forget why there was a Flood in the first place. In this Bible study, we are going to learn, the Fallen Angels left Heaven and married women producing children who were Giants (Nephilim). This multiplied wickedness in the land bringing about Noah’s Flood.
When we consider the possibility of Noah’s Flood being global, we have to ask ourselves, how did life repopulate earth after Noah’s Flood? The Bible never states insects, plants and animals left the mountains of Ararat, and traversed the entire earth. In this Bible study, we are going to discuss the actions Noah and the animals took after leaving the Ark.
When we consider the thought of Noah’s Flood being global, we should also consider the odds of the Ark landing on the Mountains of Ararat. The Bible indicates the Garden of Eden was located somewhere in modern day Iran or Iraq, (Genesis 2:10-14). So we know Noah lived in the general region, possibly near the Mountains of Ararat, and the Caspian Sea which is known to be “a dry desert land”, (see: Was Noah’s Flood Global?).
