One can not doubt the historical veracity of the Flood . And fundamentalists or biblical scholars dogmatists , will always claim : if the Flood was myth - legend, then why Jesus made reference to him and the man Noah as being something real and historical ? This quest is easy deconstruction and refutation , however, our goal is to do what the Master Jew Jesus did : interpreting the event doctrinally . Now Jesus had made reference to Noah (can not dissociate Noah 's Ark Flood Event = ) within a context of eschatology . This means two things : God , the Judge of the whole earth , have the right to judge it according to his will and righteousness, and usually when it does, shows mercy to save some people blessed by Him On Flood God executed his judgments and saved Noah and his family . In the destruction of Sodom He performed his act of judgment and rescued Lot and his family . Primitive in Egypt , God saved his people Israel and performed his acts of judgment upon the gods and the Egyptian people . In the book of Revelation reveals that eschatologically before God pours out His wrath upon the earth justice , will seal his chosen to preserve them and save them . And so it goes ...
Understand the pattern of revelation of Scripture ? Well , anyone who has read the Earth Chronicles Zacharias Sitchin , who has read books about the Epic of Gilgamesh , who has read books about the culture and
civilization of the peoples of ancient Mesopotamia , understand that all this construction that is put on the Flood in Genesis : the longevity of the people who lived over 100 and 200 years , the Nephilim , Giants , etc. . Facts are mixed with elements legendary . Being legend or myth, does not deny the historical reality . Ie behind the legends and myths there is always a true story that happened and was told in
romanciada form and mythologized . Therefore , one can not prove that the Flood was a Universal Event , geological and glacial . You can not prove that fallen angels had sex with the daughters of men . You can not prove how many died and how many survived the event or the Flood . The Bible is not given to this work . Its purpose is to reveal the true God who created all things , is powerful and righteous to judge and destroy the children of men who refuse to worship him and honor him . Men who hate to their fellow men, they are able to kill the image of God on earth ( murder = murder) . Men who wished and promoted a flood of sins in their lives , to the point of dehumanizing a demon and be more human than the image of God . Men who destroy themselves and the earth .
About these is the judgment and justice of the Creator . Thus , we concluded by saying that the Genesis 2 to Genesis 6 , the world was created with a type of race , but as this first race fell from its privileged position , the flood came upon them, and this flood, a new breed appear human , and such human race will have the privilege of being led not by Adam, but Abraham, because this will have a son ( his seed ) to be the Savior and Leader of this new race : Jesus Christ .
