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?).

Before we start our Bible study, let us ask our Father for wisdom and understanding of His Word, in Jesus Name amen.

Foreward: In this short Bible study we are going to discuss Noah’s Ark coming to rest on the Mountains of Ararat. Some of the conclusions can be documented in the Bible, while others are simply left to common sense and our imagination.

How Did Noah’s Ark Land On The Mountains Of Ararat?

Turn your Bible with me to,

Genesis 8:4
4 “And the ark rested in the seventh month, on the seventeenth day of the month, upon the mountains of Ararat.”

Notice, God’s Word said Noah’s Ark came to rest on the “mountains” (Strong’s: H2022) or “range of hills” of Ararat.

Not Mount Ararat, not the peak.

We know Noah’s Flood began on “the second month, the seventeenth day of the month” and Noah’s Ark came to rest on “the seventh month, on the seventeenth day of the month”. This means Noah’s Ark was adrift on the Floodwaters for 150 days, 5 full months, (Genesis 7:11, 8:3-4).

We also know “God made a wind to pass over the earth” which dried up the Floodwaters, (Genesis 8:1).

Understanding that, and since Noah lived in the general region…

What are the odds after a supposed global flood, filled with waves, currents, and wind that Noah’s Ark came to rest in roughly the same location where it was constructed, (see: Who Are The Hebrews, And Where Did They Come From?)?

The odds are astronomical.

Noah’s Ark Would Have Landed In A Distant Land

If Noah’s Flood was global, this means the earth would have been covered with 29,029 feet of water, enough to touch the top of Mount Everest. That would have meant there were 12,000 feet of water above the peak of Mount Ararat.

The Ark being adrift for 150 days, tossed by the sea, and blown by the wind would have been swept far out to sea, and away from the location where it was constructed. The Ark would have never come to rest on the mountains (“range of hills”) of Ararat, it would have continued to float in the ocean until it was eventually brought to land.

If you doubt this point of discussion, I encourage you to take a raft out to a lake for the day. Go to the middle of the lake with a slight breeze and see where you end up in a few hours. Now think about Noah’s Ark which would have acted as a giant sail, 150 days adrift on the Floodwaters, and the wind God sent to abate the Flood, (Genesis 8:1).

Noah’s Flood Was Not Global, But Regional

Everything we have documented from God’s Word in this Bible study series points to a local or regional flood.

A global flood is simply not Biblical, further, it is not logical, and the description for such an event cannot be found in the history of the world.

The evidence from God’s Word and the world around us points to a localized flood, a flood where the waters and Ark were confined to a region that kept the Ark from washing away to a distant land.
