Christ and the Ark of Noah

Noah's Ark! One of the most amazing objects God ever designed for men to build. And a spectacular illustration of the person and work of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Consider carefully what He said about the Ark:

But as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and did not know until the flood came and took them all away, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. (Matthew 24:37–39; cf. Luke 17:26–27)

When Noah (and his wife and three sons and their wives) entered the Ark, the rest of humanity "did not know" that a flood was coming that would "take them all away." The Flood was worldwide and inescapable (Genesis 7:19–20; 1 Peter 3:20). They were totally distracted by the things of this world and died in the greatest catastrophe the world had ever known since the Curse of Genesis 3.
