The Covenant with Noah
Noah is a new Adam. He is given a new world brought out of water. He bears God’s image, walks with God, rules over the animals, and farms. Like Adam he sins and experiences shameful nakedness, which is then covered. He is in covenant with God, has three sons, one who sins greatly. God’s covenant with Noah reveals his intention to bless. He promises to preserve the world in order to spread his grace. But though God offers all these things freely and abundantly, we have to receive and walk in them humbly by faith.
