This week we’re studying Noah’s life on earth.  But his life in the post-mortal world is just as interesting.  Noah– as the angel Gabriel– has been anxiously engaged in furthering God’s work in Old Testament, New Testament, and modern times.  He appeared to:

 

  • Daniel to tell him when the Savior would come (Daniel 9:21-27)
  • Zacharias to promise him that his aging wife would have a son whom they should name John (whom we know as John the Baptist) (Luke 1:11-19)
  • Mary (mother of Jesus) to let her know she would be the mother of the Savior of the world (Luke 1:26-38)
  • Joseph (this was also likely the Angel Gabriel though not explicitly said) telling Joseph that Mary’s pregnancy was not due to her sin, but a miracle from God that would bring the Savior into the world (Matthew 1:19-25)
  • Joseph Smith to deliver the keys, powers, and authority of his dispensation (D&C 128:21)

Before the time of the Tower of Babel, there was ONE language on the earth. (Genesis 11:1)

 

Currently, there are 6,909 distinct languages on the earth.  But according to a pretty trustworthy looking website from the University of Houston, there have been 31,000 languages spoken over the earth’s history. 

 

Can you imagine how much easier it would be to preach the gospel if we all spoke the same language?!  The Spirit World is going to be awesome!

The story in Moses 8 is actually the story of Noah’s grandfather, Methuselah. 

 

Methuselah had to stay behind when the City of Enoch was translated (can you imagine?!) so that his righteous priesthood line could continue through which Noah would be born. 

 

Noah– through Joseph– would later become Jesus’ great-great-great-great-a-lot-more-greats-grandfather. (Luke 3:36)
