This post contains The Matthew Bible Podcast notes.
In the Desert, God's preacher is told by the Almighty to build a ship, stock it with supplies, and to place animals onboard. The people around about the good man refused to listen to predictions about a destroying flood until after God sealed the door to the ship and it was too late to do anything. It would be approximately 370 days before Noe (Noah) would stand on dry land again. Eight people were saved from that great flood. They listened to the rain, perhaps the first rain in history, fall on the Ark's roof for 40 days and nights, trusting in God to deliver.
