The Flood

The flood waters covered the entire earth

When does The Flood take place?

The flood was sent by God in the year 1656 on the Hebrew calendar, generally calculated as 2105 BCE

What happened at The Flood?

Ten generations after the creation of Adam, God saw that the earth had become corrupt; filled with violence and deserving of destruction. 

God instructed one righteous man, Noah, to build an ark. He was to enter the ark with his family and all species of animals, in order to survive a planetary flood.

After 150 days, the water receded until the Ark rested on the mountains of Ararat in modern-day Turkey. 

After the flood, God made a covenant with Noah allowing his descendants (all of humanity) to eat living creatures, not just vegetation. God also promised never again to destroy all life on Earth by a flood.
