Our Ark of Noah Cross is the perfect gift for every child who now knows the story of Noah and the Flood (Genesis 6 to 9:17). At 3.2 inches high and 3.2 inches wide, this solid bronze cross – made in Germany by a master bronzesmith – is designed to hang easily on the bedroom wall next to a child’s bed or above a child’s desk. This Ark of Noah Cross is the perfect gift for every child eager and ready to understand that the story of Noah’s Ark and the Flood prepares us for the story of Jesus and his Body, the Church.
A Reminder that Noah’s Ark prefigures Christ’s Church
All the essential elements of the Noah story are present on this solid bronze cross: the Ark (Genesis 6:14-7:24), the Ark’s resting place on the peak of Mount Ararat (Genesis 8:1-5), the olive branch born by the dove (Genesis 8:6-12), and the Rainbow, God’s covenant with Noah and all humankind (Genesis 9:1-17). But the story of Noah’s Ark and the Flood is for Christians also about Christ’s Church. For just as Noah’s ark was the means by which he and his family did not drown in the Flood, so also is the Church the means by which Christians are saved. This cross is a wonderful expression of the unity of the Old and New Testaments. As such, it is a fitting gift for every child learning about the Ark of Noah, the Cross of Jesus, and the Body of Christ, the Church.
