The wife of a weirdo, 5 W's and an H Women of the Bible study

Okay, now who is the wife of a weirdo? Well, her husband was weird in the world's eyes, but to God, he wasn't. She is....


Who: Noah's wife. The mother of Shem, Ham, and Japheth. One of the only eight people to survive the flood, one of the only four women to survive the flood. The oldest woman to survive the flood. We don't know what her name was, she is only known as "Noah's wife." Have you ever been known as "so and so's sister?" or "so and so's brother?" I have, it gets kinda annoying. :P

What: Not much is said about her in the Bible, we don't even know her name. But what we do know, is that she can also be called "The mother of all living." Because she is the mother of all "living!" hehehe. Basically, the world was begun anew, so, there are two, "mother's of all living." What she did is not recorded in the Bible, but we know that there was a lot of work on the ark! She had to have been cleaning and feeding animals all the time! We don't give her much credit for that.

Where: Well, in the middle east. We only really know that she and Noah, their sons and their wives landed on mount Ararat. Which is in modern day Turkey.

When: If my math was correct, Noah was born 1,056 years after God created the world, so, his wife was probably born about the same time.

Why: Noah's wife found favor with the Lord, or else she would not have been saved. But why? Why did God pick her? No one knows, only God, He knew that that would happen when He created the world. But, she was spared. That is like us as Christians, we are spared from Hell, we should be destroyed, but God had mercy on us, and saved us through Jesus Christ. Ken Ham, founder of Answers in Genesis, found an analogy that God used through the ark, in proclaiming that Jesus was coming. He said that the ark was a picture of Jesus Christ, that when Noah was preaching, it was like how Jesus would when he would come to earth, Noah was inviting people to come into the ark to be saved from the flood, Jesus was inviting people to come to Him to be saved from Hell. See the comparison?

How: Okay now Eve was easy, but for everyone else this is going to be difficult. :) How was she saved? She was saved by getting on the ark with her husband sons and daughters-in-law. God saved her, and her family.

Tomorrow I'll try to post again, but I don't know if I will be able to. :) Give me feedback! Tell me if you like the study! I need some!

Bye for now!

Oh, and one more thing: you know with the buttons and all, how I told you to get the HTML code of them, and then a box shows and you have to get rid of it? well, anyway, there's a better way found out, so you dont have to get rid of the box or anything because it doesnt show up. In stead of getting the HTML code of the button, get the link code :)
