Finding The Noah's Ark Documentary - Documentary Films Channel

Noah's Ark is the vessel in the Genesis flooding narrative (Genesis chapters 6-- 9) by which God conserves Noah, his family, and a remnant of all the world's animals from the flood. God gives Noah specified instructions for developing the ark: it is to be of gopher timber, smeared throughout with pitch, with three decks and internal compartments; it will certainly be 300 cubits long (137.16 m, 450 ft), 50 wide (22.86 m, 75 ft), and 30 high (13.716 m, 45 ft); it will have a roof "finished to a cubit upwards"; and an entrance on the side. The tale takes place to describe the ark being afloat throughout the flooding and succeeding receding of the waters before it came to relax on the Mountains of Ararat. The story is duplicated, with variations, in the Quran, where the ark shows up as Safina Nuh.

The Genesis flood narrative is comparable to many various other flooding myths from a variety of cultures. The earliest known written flooding misconception is the Sumerian flooding myth found in the Epic of Ziusudra.

Searches for Noah's Ark have actually been made from at the very least the time of Eusebius (c. 275-- 339 ADVERTISEMENT) to the present day. Despite numerous explorations, no scientific evidence of the ark has actually been found.

The Hebrew word for the ark, teba, takes place just two times in the Bible: in the flooding narrative and in the Book of Exodus, where it refers to the basket in which Jochebed puts her child, the baby Moses. God advises Noah to kapar (smear) the ark with koper (pitch): in Hebrew the very first of these words is a verb developed from the second, and this is the only place in the Bible where koper implies "pitch".
