Search The Scriptures — Study 6— Genesis 8:20-9:29
Study 6 of "Search The Scriptures” Is:
1. What did Noah’s altar and burnt offerings signify? To what would they correspond in our lives today? Cf. Rom. 12:I; Heb. 13:15,16.
2. Reflect on Noah’s position after the deluge. In what ways did God encourage him?
3. What makes human life supremely precious? What kind of penalty is here ordained for the murderer?
4. What may we learn here concerning the place and manner of covenant making? Can you think of other visible tokens and pledges which seal covenants?
Note. 9:13. This does not imply that the rainbow was now seen for the first time, but that God now made it a token of His covenant of promise to Noah.
