The Covenant with Noah (Gen. 6-9)

The account of Noah and the ark is one that always features prominently in children’s Sunday School materials with colorful illustrations of lots of animals, but it is actually a very dark story; God did, after all, destroy the entire world with a flood because of the moral corruption mankind had sunk to. From a covenantal perspective, the Flood account is a key foundational pillar in the Covenant of Grace.
