The story of the Bible is that of redemptive history, before God could finally bring the great redeemer Christ Jesus, there are various stories in the Old Testament that shows us the shadows of his redemptive work. The first of this story, was that of Noah. Who in the midst of the corrupt world, God showed favor on him and rescued him from the punishment He was going to bring on the earth.
Noah's character was that of a righteous, blameless and faithfulness. In Genesis 6:9-22 God told Noah His intended judgement to corrupted world, how He would rescue him and his household. The Story of the ark reminds us of the great redemptive grace of God as well as the obedience of Noah to the LORD's command.
