Title: Noah, More than Just an Ark

Description: Today we are joined by Garry Stevens of the History in the Bible Podcast to talk about the Biblical story of Noah from the Old Testament or Hebrew Bible. We will use the 2014 film Noah starring Russell Crowe to examine this popular story. We also see how this movie used non-Canonical texts, such as the Book of Enoch. This movie is much more complex and nuanced than any Hollywood movie deserves to be!

Today, we're going to talk about a movie called Noah, a 2014 movie produced by Darren Aronofsky who brought us movies, such as PI the wrestler, which, um, Garry noted that he liked that.
