Every story has a backstory — even the ones you think you know. Few stories are more familiar, even to those who haven’t read the Bible, than the story of Noah’s Ark. But even this story has a backstory. Noah stands alone against evil on the brink of a cataclysmic disaster. With only the help of his family, he enacts a plan to save the world. Yet the plot of the story is not about Noah at all, but about one was was yet to come, who would save the world from an even worse catastrophe.
This week we continue our conversations from the Book of Beginnings by discussing the second part of Genesis 6, God’s command to Noah to build and ark as a refuge for his family and a remnant of creation from the inevitable results of a world spiraling downward in violence and evil. The call of Noah, however, points us to the need for a refuge from the same thing — a refuge found not in an ark, but in a cross.
