The story of Noah and the ark
The story of Noah and the ark is very familiar to many children. It is about a real flood that took place 1656 years after the creation of heaven and the earth.
Noah lived in the earth with his wife, three son and their wives. His sons’ names were Shem, Ham, and Japheth.
Why did Noah build an ark?
Noah built an ark because Gos told him to do ao. God said thar He was going to send a flood on the earth to destroy all of the people.
The people living in the earth hated God. They were worshiping idols, and doing a lot of bad things like killing one another.
God became very displeased. He told Noah to warn them about the flood and to escape by coming into the ark.
Noah preached and preached, but they would not change their bad ways.
