What rich comfort is contained in the thought that both the fly and the elephant were safe in Noah's ark? What rich comfort does this thought imply for God's "little ones in grace"?


Of the increase of His government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon His kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever.

- Isaiah 9:7a

For whom the Lord loveth He chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom He receiveth.

- Hebrews 12:6


Read Luke 22:31-34 and 54-62. Which verses speak of Christ's work in Peter's life as his:
- Teaching Prophet
- Interceding Priest
- Ruling King

    Marvin's catechism teacher asked his class how Noah's ark was a type of Christ. The following answers were given:

    - The ark was God's provision of refuge for the judgment to come
    - The necessity for fleeing to and entering the ark was preached
    - Those inside the ark were saved; those outside were lost
    - Once the judgment came, it was too late to enter the ark
    - All that were in the ark were not only gathered and delivered, but also perfectly protected and preserved; this is true of the fly as well as the elephant.

    How do each of these answers picture Jesus Christ as King?

Thirdly, as King, Christ rules and governs His Church. He rules by means of His Word and Spirit. Christ rules with perfect wisdom, love, and patience. He tenderly chastens and corrects His people for their sins, as a father lovingly disciplines his children.

    In Luke 22, we read of Peter's denial of his King, of Jesus Christ. Read verses 60-62:

    And Peter said, Man, I know not what thou sayest. And immediately, while he yet spake, the cock crew.

    And the Lord turned, and looked upon Peter. And Peter remembered the word of the Lord, how He had said unto him, Before the cock crow, thou shalt deny Me thrice.

    And Peter went out, and wept bitterly.

    -Luke 22:60-62

    With what type of look did Jesus look at Peter? Why did this look from his King break Peter's heart?

    The last chapter of II Chronicles relates how Judah was conquered by Nebuchadnezzar, Jerusalem destroyed, the temple burned, and the people killed or led away captive. This chapter also states the reason why all this evil happened to Israel, the people set apart by God and placed in a covenant relationship with Him.
