Confirmation Lesson
Prehistory: The Flood
In the future, a brief overview of confirmation lessons can be found on the church website: https://oursaviourslc.org/confirmation-lessons/
Key Words
WALK WITH GOD: remaining faithful to God even when others around you are not; trusting and believing in God. Noah walked with God.
COVENANT: a promise or binding agreement between two parties. When God makes a covenant, it is very one-sided, with the people of God getting the full benefit. 
RESTORATION: bringing something back to its former condition; reinstatement. Through the flood, God restored an understanding of the rules and boundaries we live by. It was a new beginning, living in the grace and forgiveness of God.
Genesis 6:9-22
As you read, underline the parts that stick out to you - things that surprise you, things you didn't realize before, things that really move you.

Genesis 6:9 Noah "walked with God". Under line and note: Noah trusted God even when no one else did.

Genesis 6:5-8 How did God feel about creation? Write: "The world fell away from God."

Genesis 6:18 Underline, then circle "Covenant" and note that it means "Promise".


Video - Noah
Watch the trailer to the movie "Noah" with an imaginative mind. Think of it as though you are there - what do you feel, see, hear, smell.
Genesis 9
Again, as you read, underline the parts that stick out to you - things that surprise you, things you didn't realize before, things that really move you.

Genesis 9:9 Underline

Genesis 9:11 Underline

Genesis 9:13 Underline, then circle "Covenant" and note that it means "Promise".

Write on side "God keeps God's promises"
Things to Think About
What do you think about this...
• God spared Noah and his family during the flood, but what happens to them after the flood? Discover the answer by reading Genesis 9:18-28.
• Did the flood rid the world of sin? How can God’s covenant keep you positive when you realize that you will always be a sinner?
• Besides the rainbow in this story, what other signs can you think of in Old Testament and New Testament stories?
• God didn’t just save humans. Animals were included on the ark, too. What does God’s commitment to saving animals mean for us?
