New 'Noah's Ark' Will Arrive At Summer Olympics With A Special Purpose

Noah's Ark is ready to float again, but this time it's a 410-foot-long, 2,500-ton replica. And instead of keeping mankind's last surviving family afloat, its new mission is to bring the truth of God's Word to a massive gathering of people from all over the world.

According to One News Now, the full-size replica of Noah's Ark, built by construction business owner Johan Huibers in the Netherlands, is floating across the Atlantic to visit Rio de Janeiro in time for the 2016 Summer Olympic Games in August.

Built somewhat to biblical dimensions, the ark's purpose is to bring one of the Bible's most incredible accounts to life with onboard displays in an effort to show how the ark could have actually worked as a lifeboat for Noah's family and two of every kind of animal.

According to Creation.com, this is actually Huibers' second ark. The first one he built drew 600,000 visitors in the Netherlands — half of them non-Christian — and generated a lot of discussion. This second, larger ark was built to travel and is constructed out of 12,000 Swedish pine trees and reinforced by a floating barge.

But Huibers said he built the ark for Christians as well, explaining that he was called by God to build it and that “It is so important that we pass on our faith and what we have learned on to others, not keep it to ourselves. Even though you are not perfect yet, yes, even when you might miss the mark in many aspects, just put hands and feet to your Christianity and put it into practice.”
