Old Testament Lesson 6: “Noah Prepared an Ark to the Saving of His House”

In this lesson we explore the story of Noah’s Ark and the story of the Tower of Babel, two potent symbols, and their meaning to our lives today in our journey back to our Savior.

They spent their time acquiring things—cattle, precious metals like brass and iron. When they couldn’t get what they wanted, they would murder for it.
