NOAH – MOTIVE IN PREPARING THE ARK

 

Scriptures are cited from the King James (Authorized) Version, unless stated otherwise.

 

Question: How can Noah be a type of Jesus, seeing that Noah was “moved with fear” in preparing the ark (Hebrews 11: 7)?

 

Answer: The Greek word that is translated “fear” in Hebrews 11: 7 has the meaning of “godly fear,” as indicated in Hebrews 12: 28. Rotherham suggests that “filled with reverence” is a better translation. Rather than Noah being moved by fear in the ordinary sense, the Greek text indicates that he was piously disposed.
