The Ark, an immense barge-like ship, was built by Noah at God’s command to preserve the life needed to repopulate the earth once the Flood had accomplished its judgment. After safely bringing its precious cargo through an event violent enough to reshape the planet’s entire surface, it came to rest “in the seventh month, the seventeenth day of the month, on the mountains of Ararat” (Genesis 8:4). Having served its purpose, the Ark then disappeared from the Bible’s pages.
But what happened to it? Over time, stories emerged of a huge, box-like object spotted on the icy slopes of Mt. Ararat in the wilds of eastern Turkey. Could it possibly be what’s left of the Ark? Starting in 1972, Dr. John Morris of the Institute for Creation Research led numerous expeditions to this dangerous part of the world to find out. Here are just a few of the adventures, dangers, and difficulties he and his team encountered.
