Encountering the Covenant Between God and Noah

Oct 7, 2021

וַיְבָרֶךְ אֱלֹהִים אֶת־נֹחַ וְאֶת־בָּנָיו וַיֹּאמֶר לָהֶם פְּרוּ וּרְבוּ וּמִלְאוּ אֶת־הָאָרֶץ׃

Hashem blessed Noach and his sons, and said to them, “Be fertile and increase, and fill the earth.

Genesis 9:1

Sondra Oster Baras of Christian Friends of Israeli Communities explains the significance of a Biblical covenant, which is a two-way street that God makes with humanity. Noah is told, “be fruitful and multiply” – to have children, many children to fill the earth, which has always been a primary value in the Jewish community. There are many other fascinating connections between the covenant of Noah, and the covenant of Adam, which is essential to understand, as illustrated in this video course.
