Check in/ Thoughts: From Video

Bible Reading: Genesis 7

Noah as a type of Christ:

  • Noah was a type of Christ in that he served as a sort of “second Adam;”
  • Just as God had given Adam creation mandates to be fruitful and multiply so He gave Noah re-creation mandates. And both Noah & Adam were given instructions about food.
  • Noah’s name meant “rest.” His father named him.
  • Noah only brought rest in a typical sense when he walked off the Ark with his family to inhabit a typical new creation.
  • But Christ, the greater Noah, gives rest to the souls of men and women (Matt. 11:25-30). Christ alone has secured the new creation through His death and resurrection.
  • The Lord preserved mankind after the flood in order to fulfil His promise In Genesis 3:15 to send the “seed” of the woman to crush the head of the Serpent. He also preserved Noah on the Ark because the Redeemer was in his loins–so to speak (Luke 3:23, 35-37).
  • Though the flood had been a judgment on the wickedness of the fallen world, it could never take that wickedness out of the hearts of men, only the saving work of Christ could do so.
  • In short, the humanity of Christ was in the Ark in the line of Noah.
