This is a commentary on Genesis 6-11 and Moses 8—the text for Lesson 6 “Noah Found Grace in the Eyes of the Lord” in the Come, Follow Me for Individuals and Families manual for 2022. This chapter will conclude our study of the Pearl of Great Price, and it launches us into the deep waters of the ministry and flood of Noah and the building of the tower. This was a very interesting lesson—for me at least. I had fun.

We will have a look at many things surrounding the flood and Noah’s ministry. We’ll ponder the flexibility available for a different interpretation of the extent of the flood that is introduced by our Pearl of Great Price account. We will explore a bit about why good girls chose bad boys. We will hopefully give you a new concept of what the giants—the Nephilim might have been. We will explore the vocabulary of sex in the Old Testament. We will talk about the ark and the good ship Zion. We will have a glance at the Babylonian flood myths and the story of Utnapishtim and how that fits (or doesn’t fit) with Genesis. We will look at the role of signs and tokens in our covenant relationship with God. We’ll speculate about what the rabbis and others have said about Noah’s garment. We’ll look at the spread of the Gentile nations, try to divorce that finally from plate tectonics, and see what that has to do with the Seventy today. We’ll also talk about the Great Tower and discuss the Nimrod stories and the Sibyls just for fun. We’ll see how much the Book of Mormon helps us out with the tower story. Finally we’ll talk about whether we can earn our way back to heaven. And with pictures and more…as the commercials say.

This rather breathless summary will suffice for this week’s offering. pp.56
