Noah, the Flood, Pitch and Salvation

I spent a wonderful morning today with almost 200 school children. I taught on the Biblical flood and Noah, the ark and salvation. Did you know God told Noah to cover both the inside and outside of the ark with pitch? The pitch was a covering that kept Noah, his family and the animals safe inside the ark and protected from God's judgment of the world. This pitch is a picture of salvation through Jesus Christ for us from God's judgment for our sin. His blood covers us and keeps us safe from judgment just like the pitch covered the ark, keeping the passengers inside the ark safe. There are so many lessons to learn from Genesis! The penny press machine came with me and each child pressed a penny and took one of our cards. Enjoy the pictures:
