Q: Is Noah biblically accurate?

A: One of the things we have heard from various Christian leaders is that the film was rather faithful to the biblical text. In fact, a seven-minute video was produced by a believer who works in Hollywood that displayed various endorsements of the film. In it, Ari Handel, the co-screenwriter of Noah stated, “It was very important to us to do two things at the same time. One was to not to do anything which contradicted the letter of the text. And the second was, wherever we could, without contradicting Genesis, we wanted to break expectations.”

But several inaccuracies in the film’s story reveal a cavalier attitude towards the Bible. If they can’t bother to get the smaller points right, then how can we trust them to accurately handle the larger issues? Think about it. For example, they could have made Ham the youngest of the boys or had Noah release the raven without changing their overall story. But they didn’t. Instead, the filmmakers directly went against the Word of God on issues that wouldn’t have changed their story, which demonstrates that they absolutely did not respect God’s Word. They did not try hard to avoid doing “anything which contradicted the letter of the text.”

Read the whole article to learn how the Noah film misrepresentations and distorts the Bible’s account of Noah, evil vs. good, and God’s work of creation.
