that's' My World, ABC Wednesday, A for Noah's Ark
This video shows the Dutch carpenter Johan Huibers is building a seaworthy replica of Noah's Ark and why he is doing this.This replica of Noah's Ark is being built to approximately one-half of the size specifications given in the Old Testament. Inside there are life-size statues of elephants and a giraffe to welcome the visitors. A small theater showing a film on the life of Noah is tucked under the keel, and the nearly finished top deck will soon house a petting zoo with lambs, chickens, goats, and a camel. Passengers can sail up and down Holland's canals while exploring the giant bark.
Noah's Ark (Hebrew: תֵּבַת נֹחַ, Tebhath Noaḥ in Classical Hebrew; Tevat Noakh in Modern Hebrew) is the vessel which, according to the Book of Genesis (chapters 6-9) and the Quran (surah Hud), was built by Noah at God's command to save himself, his family, and the world's animals from a worldwide deluge.
God, seeing the wickedness of man, is grieved by his creation and resolves to send a great flood. He sees that Noah is a man "righteous in his generation," and gives him detailed instructions for the Ark. When the animals are safe on board God sends the Flood, which rises until all the mountains are covered and all life is destroyed. At the height of the flood the Ark rests on the mountains, the waters abate, and dry land reappears. Noah, his family, and the animals leave the Ark, and God vows to never again send a flood to destroy the Earth.
