How many cubits were in the ark?
Thankfully, the Bible gives us some details about the ark’s construction. The ark had three decks, or floors and was 300 cubits long, 50 cubits wide, and 30 cubits high.
How big is the Ark encounter?
So when we built Ark Encounter, we made the ark to these measurements: 510 feet long, 85 feet wide, and 51 feet high. That is a big ship. You could fit 450 semi-trailers into the hull of the ark. That’s a lot of space!
How many semi trailers fit in the hull of the Ark?
You could fit 450 semi-trailers into the hull of the ark. That’s a lot of space! A lot of people still say that even all of this space would not be enough for all the species of animals in the world today, but Noah did not have to take all the species. In fact, the vast majority of species did not have to get on the ark.
Why did God give Noah the blueprint for the perfect ship?
God gave Noah the blueprint for the perfect ship to ensure Noah, his family, and the animals could survive the flood —even somewhat comfortably.
What did God tell Noah?
God told Noah he would only be taking air-breathing, land-dwelling animals on the ark. That means that none of the sea creatures needed to go. Further, God told Noah he would not be taking all the species. God said Noah would take members of every kind (Genesis 6:20). Kinds are not the same as species.
How big is a cubit?
Obviously, this varies based on the size of the man. For the Ark Encounter, we used the royal cubit, which is 20.4 inches in length.
Did God say Noah would take all kinds of people?
God said Noah would take members of every kind (Genesis 6:20). Kinds are not the same as species. Most kinds consist of dozens or more species. Answers in Genesis asked scientists to do a large-scale study to determine what the kinds that were on the ark would have been.
