365 Daily Lessons - Week 2 Day 7 Religion "Noah"


My most interesting take-away from reading about Noah from the book of Genesis in the bible is that it is the first appearance of wine in the bible.  After the flood, Noah is discovered by his sons having imbibed a tad too much with the vino and is out like a candle.

Considering the story we are told of what he just went through, I pass no judgement what-so-ever.

Christians and Jewish historians and theologians give slightly different interpretations of Noah's story.  What else is new.  Of course there are different interpretations.  The Christians see Noah as an ideal faith in God due to his obedience to make the ark and follow the instructions of male/female animals and such.  Jewish interpreters take the written description of Noah being the last one to board the ark as a sign of hesitation and reluctance in faith.

Both religious teachers view Noah and the flood as critical expressions of faith.  Nice.  Something to agree on.
