When Noah boarded the ark he was 600 years old. When Noah boarded the ark he was 600 years old. When Noah boarded the ark he was 600 years old.


The story of Noah and the ark is found in the first book of the old testament Genesis.


According to Genesis, Noah was exactly 600 years old when he completed the Ark and the rains came, and died when he was just 950 years old.


Jesus never got into the ark, that was Noah from the Old Testament.


Noah started building the ark when he was 500 years old and the flood waters covered the earth when he was 600. So is short, It took Noah 100 years to build the ark.


According to tradition, Noah began building the ark 120 years before the Flood, which was 20 years before the first of his three sons were born.


Noah was 600 years old.Genesis 7:10 says that the flood waters came 7 days after completion of the Ark Genesis 7:6 says: "Noah was six hundred years old when the floodwaters came on the earth." (NIV).


According to Genesis 7:13, there were 8 that were saved on the Ark - Noah, his wife, 3 sons and his son's 3 wives.


The Bible does not say. Presumably they did when they were old enough.


Noah was 600 years old when the flood started (Genesis 7:6), and we also know that he already had his sons (he had them after turning 500 - Genesis 5:32) when God spoke to him (God mentions his taking his wife, sons and daughter-in-laws with him, when He tells of His plan with the ark - Genesis 6:18). So when he built the ark he was somewhere between 500 and 600 years old, give or take some years, as his sons were already married; it really depends on when God came to him and how long it took to build the boat.


A:The Bible says that Noah was a distant ancestor to Abraham, but lived until Abraham was 60 years old, although Abraham seems unaware of Noah's existence or even of God having saved him in the Flood. From a biblical perspective, Noah and Abraham's were therefore related. From a historical perspective, both Noah and Abraham are considered by scholars to be mythical and therefore Noah and Abraham are only related in biblical tradition.


After Noah and his family left the ark, Noah built an alter where he offered burnt offerings to God. Then he and his family did as God told them ~ to " be fruitful and multiply; spread out over the earth and multiply on it." (Gen 8:7 HSBC). Noah was the first man to build a vinyard before he died at the ripe old age of 950. (Noah's life is described in the Bible in the book of Genesis, chapters 5-9.)



Yes the story of Noah is in the old testament, in the first book called Genesis.


Noah was 601 yrs old, and while i am at it will someone tell me please tell me ,if all living things living today are decendents of those on Noah"S Ark where the hell did he get Kangaroos when Australia was not even on any map and the world was flat and the center of universe?>>?"REMEMBER? "lol."


Noah was 600 years old at the time of the Flood. It began to rain on the 17th day of the 2nd month of Noah's 600th year. The 120 years in Genesis 6:3 may refer to the time left before the Flood which would put Noah at 480 years old when he started to build the ark.



Wel,l Noah was old just because he was old. He wasn't purposely made that way. We all age. God probably picked Noah to build the Ark because he was old and wise. Remember, old people aren't as boring as you think. Listen to their stories.


40 days and 40 nights. The story of Noah is originally from the Torah, or the Old Testament to Christians.


Yes. In the Old Testament, God was angry with how his world had turned out so he asked Noah to build an ark. This was so he could collect two of each species and destroy everything so he could start over.


Noah died at the ripe old age of 950 years. After Noah mans life span never was in so many hundreds of years it is now 70 years.


Genesis 6:9-7:5 is the account of Noah, and though it doesn't directly say how long it took God to talk to Noah after the ark was completed, if we consider that Noah was 500 years old before he even had his sons(Genesis 5:32), and the flood began when he was 600 years old(Genesis 7:6), it wasn't long. -Noah's sons were already grown with wives during the time they helped him build the ark (Genesis 6:13-18) -the ark undoubtedly took a long time to build, taking up probably 50-60 years. -then to fill it with animals so it wasn't long after the ark was completed and filled before God spoke to Noah telling him he was going to bring the flood 'in just 7 days'(Genesis 7:4).


In the Old Testament, there are ten generations between Noah and Abraham. However, according to the detailed genealogies in the Book of Genesis, Noah must have still been alive until Abraham was a relatively old man.The author of Genesis claimed to know that Noah lived another 350 years after the Flood, therefore living until Abraham was some 60 years old, yet he played no further part in the biblical story. Abraham was not even aware that he had a living ancestor who could have provided personal testimony for his God.In the New Testament, Luke's Gospel has eleven generations between Noah and Abraham, inserting Kainan, son of Arphaxad, for theological reasons.


The Bible says that Noah was a distant ancestor to Abraham, but lived until Abraham was 60 years old, although Abraham seems unaware of Noah's existence or even of God having saved him in the Flood (One online site even estimates that Abraham was born 165 years before Noah died). From a biblical perspective, Noah was therefore born long before Abraham but was also alive through much of Abraham's lifetime. From a historical perspective, both Noah and Abraham are considered by scholars to be mythical and therefore neither Noah nor Abraham really lived. Noah was born in 2948BC and died in 1998BC at the age of 950, while Abraham was born in 1996BC and died in 1821BC at the age of 175, so they were contemporaneous for 2 years. [All dates Ussher]


First mention of Noah is when he was about 500 yrs old. he finished building the ark when he was 600 yrs old. So he worked on the ark for approximately 100 years. The ark was made of wood, but this must be a special wood that does not dry up, shrink and do not rot, for 100 years. There are no known tree today that shows this characteristics. It may be extinct now and we may never know what kind of wood Noah used.
