Lesson 10: Was the Flood global?

Text: The Creation Answers Book, chapter 10

Discussion questions

  1. How should Christians respond to claims that the ‘Black Sea flood’ is evidence for a local flood of Noah? (See also Was Noah’s Flood really just a local flood in the Black Sea area?)

  2. Discuss the geological evidence supporting the global Flood of Noah’s day. (See Q&A: Geology.)

Research report 1

  • Research the various ‘flood legends’ found throughout the world. Compare and contrast the claims of these ‘legends’ with the true account found in Genesis. (See also Flood by Design (ebook))

Research report 2

  • During the early 1800s, a group of men began writing against ‘old-Earth’, local Flood ideas. Research these men and write a report about their lives and their arguments against such ideas. (See The 19th Century Scriptural Geologists.)


  • Write an essay on ‘Noah’s Flood: global or local?’
