This begins a series of lessons about the people that God used throughout the Old Testament to illustrate what Jesus came to do for us. None of these people were perfect. Only Jesus is that good, but God used them anyway and that is what I think He wants us to see. By looking at their lives and how God used them, we will learn much that can guide and strengthen us in our own journeys.
We’re going to start with Noah. You’ll find His story in Genesis, Chapters 6-9. You might want to read the whole passage to get reacquainted with the story, but we could sum it up with verses 5-8 of Chapter 6. We all learned about the ark in Sunday school, but there’s much more here. Noah is the first picture of a deliverer who would save humanity. Let’s take a look at Noah’s life and see what we can learn.
