Bible Truths - Noah Built the Ark

The following is a listing of Bible Truths for Genesis 6:1-22, the story of Noah Building the Ark.

  1. Sin grew from Adam and Eve's disobedience in Genesis 3 to Cain's murder of Abel in Genesis 4 to the total corruption of mankind in Genesis 6.  Genesis 6:12.
  2. Noah did what was right in God's eyes even though Noah's friends were doing evil.  Genesis 6:9-12.
  3. God punished the evil people.  Genesis 6:12-13.
  4. God protected the righteous Noah and provided for Noah's needs during the flood which killed everyone who did evil.  Genesis 6:18, 21.
  5. Noah demonstrated his faith by doing all that God commanded him to do.  Genesis 6:22; Hebrews 11:7.

The following is a listing of activities that can be used to teach the Bible Truths.

Bible Story Activities.
Draw the Ark.  Ask the children to read Genesis 6:14-16 and use markers, colors and their imagination to draw the ark Noah built.
The Loner.  The children experience what it is like to be the only person resisting temptation.
Remind the children that temptation is something that appears desirable which makes a person want to do it, think it, say it, or get it.  See Adam and Eve Sinned.
Ask for a volunteer to play Noah.  The rest of the class pretends to be the evil people living during Noah's time.
Pass around a bag of candy, explaining that the candy represents evil.  Only the evil people can take a piece of candy.
After everyone except Noah has taken a piece of candy, ask the class to do their best to tempt Noah to take a piece of candy.
Explain that it is sometimes hard to resist temptation and do what God wants, especially when all of our friends may be doing wrong.
But if we do not resist temptation, we will be punished like those who did evil when Noah lived.

Life in Biblical Times.

How Big Was the Ark?  Read Genesis 6:15.  Go outside and let the children use a tape measure to discover how long and wide the ark was.
