I previously asked a similar question in this site, about connections between the imagery in the Creation and the Flood stories in Genesis. Now I would like to know if anyone who can access the original Hebrew can help me with a less supported link I also perceive: that between Noah’s Ark, which holds all of the animal and human life left after the flood, and the ark that held baby Moses. (Moses, perhaps, can now mean the “hope” for the survival of the Jewish people, a new beginning for them, or himself as their God?) I first noticed that the vessel that conveyed Moses, in Exodus, 2, was called an “ark” and that it was covered with pitch, just as Noah’s Ark was:
2 And the woman conceived, and bare a son: and when she saw him that he was a goodly child, she hid him three months. 3 And when she could not longer hide him, she took for him an ark of bulrushes, and daubed it with slime and with pitch, and put the child therein; and she laid it in the flags by the river's brink. (kjv)
Let us compare the above with Genesis 6:14
Make thee an ark of gopher wood; rooms shalt thou make in the ark, and shalt pitch it within and without with pitch. (kjv)
Does the original Hebrew make any references to Moses being the “life” of his people or as being God-like enough to link up with the Spirit of God, of Genesis 1:2?
