Ancient Grace: A Curse and A Blessing (Gen 9:18-29)

Posted on March 1st, 2019
While the main point of this text is to show the people of God that they are his blessed people and that they are not to live like God’s enemies the Canaanites, this text also deals with some other difficult issues. They are worth discussing as many people have struggled with alcohol and others affected by sexual assault. Unfortunately, Noah got drunk, even after entering into covenant with God. But he was also violated by his son, some believe sexually. This difficult text invites to even consider how we are to love those who are the victims of sexual abuse and those who need to be brought to justice.
