Die Arche nach der Bibel.jpg

The  ark  -  after  the  Bible....   ( for  all  JW...)  :x

The dimensions of the ark are given in the Bible. The slave fixes an elbow like 44.5 cm, which is confirmed by archaeological finds. The size of the ark according to Genesis 6:15 was 300 cubits (long) x 50 (wide) x 30 (high). That's about 133 x 22 x 13 meters. According to biblical history, the ark had three floors. Each apartment had an area of 2,926 m². This leads us to a total area of 8,778 m² (2,926 x 3)

In comparison, a football pitch in the Bundesliga in Germany has an area of 7,140 m². If we add the area behind the gate (about 3 meters) and next to the side lines (about 1.5 meters). ), this results in 7,881 m². It's not exactly the area of the ark that's even bigger, but to get a rough idea of the size, the comparison should be sufficient.

Below is a picture captured from JW.ORG some time ago depicting what Noah's ark would likely have looked like.

Many decades ago there was a movie called "Bring them back alive" Frank Buck was the hunter who trapped scores of animals and dragged them home in cages of wood.

Some may have imagined that this was the way Noah and his sons did it - not so. It would have taken centuries for Noah to do it in the same way as Frank Buck.

One of our publications mentioned that the animals came to Noah. (Gen. 7:9)

"Bring 'Em Back Alive" TV Intro  /  I  found  for  you.....:)

I will tell you another story.

Eight years ago when my wife became weaker, I began renovating our house at the age of 80. One day I climbed a 4 meter ladder while holding a section of hardboard, to pass to the painter on the roof. As I climbed down my foot slipped and I fell to the ground unconscious. I was taken to hospital where I came to four hours later.

My brain was scanned and Xrayed in many layers, and I was released three weeks later, and had to learn to walk again. A month in a wheel chair, a month using an aluminum walker, and weeks walking and falling. I still sway as if I'm drunk.

Worse, the short term memory of my brain has been permanently damaged. When someone tells me their name, it's forgotten a few seconds later. Very embarrassing.

But Jehovah was very kind by preserving my long term memory. I still remember everything in detail since I was about five years old. You have probably noticed this by the contributions made here. My Bible knowledge remains excellent.

      The Ark must of been rectangular, like a shoe box the size of a football field. Many depictions of a large ship with a bow would have compromised the inner cubic footage.The ark in Kentucky,USA is an example of this error.  The ark was covered in black tar, they had no machinery to plane the timbers they used in the construction, the tar would fill the gaps in the timbers. There were no baby dinosaurs on the ark as some depict it.The event took place in 2370 B.C.E., the dinosaurs had died off long before then.
      The ark was a great witness to the people,but what was their attitude? God Loves Us and won't destroy us? Why did God speak to you Noah? Did Jehovah Know there would be apathy towards the Ark? Was there room for another 1000 people? The correlation of the people's attitude then and today, as Jesus brought out at Mathew 24:36-40, is accurate.

      The Hong Kong-based team rebutted skepticism over their claims of finding Noah's Ark in Turkey. Two members of the search team that claims to have found Noah’s Ark on Mount Ararat in Turkey responded to skepticism by saying that there is no plausible explanation for what they found other than it is the fabled biblical boat that weathered a storm that raged 40 days and 40 nights and flooded the entire Earth.Noah's Ark Ministries International (NAMI) held a press conference April 25 in Hong Kong to present their findings and say they were “99.9 percent sure” that a wooden structure found at a 12,000-ft. elevation and dated as 4,800 years old was Noah’s Ark.members of the Chinese-Turkish team stood by their finding.“How can a ship be on a mountain?” Yeung Wing-cheung, one of six team members who entered the structure on Mount Ararat last October, told the Monitor today by telephone from Hong Kong.“The only record of a wooden structure on Mount Ararat is Noah’s Ark," Clara Wei, the team coordinator, also said today by telephone from Beijing. "So up to now I believe this is the most probable explanation. We don’t have another explanation." Turkish officials from Agri Province, the location of Mount Ararat, also attended this week’s press conference in Hong Kong. Lieutenant governor Murat Güven and Cultural Ministries Director Muhsin Bulut, both provincial officials, believe the discovery is likely Noah’s Ark, according to the announcement posted on the team's website.

      GROSS TONNAGE: Nearly 14,000 tons
