When most preachers discuss for instance the life of Abraham, yet in other discussions say Noah’s Flood was probably not as described in the Bible (havng covered the earth), they make specious their claim for the historicity and significance of of the life of Abraham, who was just ten genertions from Noah and the eight survivors the global flood, because after all, what should be the significance of Abraham had he not been in the line of Shem (Semites) through Heber (Hebrews)?
Do you see the slippery slope in not treating Noah’s Flood as the real history espoused by Jesus Christ himself? If the Table of Nations in Genesis 10, the progeny of the eight on the Noah’s Ark, is not the true template for the settlement of the ancient world, then the Word’s claim that Hamites, Shemites, and Japhethites, and intermarriages among them, have been responsible for all the peopling of the world, is rendered historically invalid, crippling the message of the Word that it’s history to believe, not just a fairytale dreamed by sun-stroked iron age shepherds.
The ancient nations were named after those biblical characters, the progeny which followed the eight on the Ark, names such as Canaan, Elam, Assur, Peleg, Heber, and Joktan. And the major language groups today accepted by darwinian linguists are named (to their chagrin) after Noah’s sons, the semitic (Shem) language group, the hamitic (Ham), and and japhetic (Japheth/Indo European), so according to most preachers, this should be seen as all coincidence really, because without Noah’s Flood as described in the Bible, there were many other tribes on earth at the time of Noah.
