To some, the idea of “Noah’s Flood,” conjures up images from Sunday School Bible stories of a small boat overstuffed with cute animals that gently bobbed in an ocean. Many simply call it a myth. Fewer and fewer these days believe the Flood account from Genesis 6-9 is actual history. The Bible frames the Flood as an actual, historical event—one that involved a specific family of 8. Genesis says the Flood lasted for a full year, engulfed the entire world, and preserved animals, plants, and humanity from well-deserved judgement. The Flood represents the most detailed account of any single event in the Bible. Both the apostle Peter and Jesus even referred to the Genesis Flood as a real, historical event. So it’s safe to say that the credibility of the Bible–and even Jesus Himself–hinges on whether the Flood account actually happened as described in Genesis.
