Just how Long Did Noah Preach Before the Flood Came?
There is Proof Of Noah’s Flood So just How Long Did Noah Preach About the Flood Before It Happened?
Common Belief that Noah Preached for 120 years before God Sent the Flood Waters.
However, this is most likely Not true. Noah was warned of God that the Flood was coming when he was 500 years old. The Bible Says that the Flood happened when Noah was about 600 years old. That makes it hard for Noah to preach the Flood was coming for more then 100 years.
”And, behold, I, even I, do bring a flood of waters upon the earth, to destroy all flesh, wherein is the breath of life, from under heaven; and every thing that is in the earth shall die. 18 But with thee will I establish my covenant; and thou shalt come into the ark, thou, and thy sons, and thy wife, and thy sons’ wives with thee.” Genisis 6:17-18
Noah had sons when he was 500 years old.
And Noah was five hundred years old: and Noah begat Shem, Ham, and Japheth. Genisis 5:32
These are the generations of Shem: Shem was an hundred years old, and begat Arphaxad two years after the flood: Genisis 11:10
Shem is 98-99 when the Flood came.
Shem most Likely Helped Noah Build the Ark since it is hard for One man to build it alone.
Shem had Kids 2 years after the Flood.
Shem was probably at least 20 before marraige so this is in the 70-80 year range.
