This week’s parsha tells us about an epic description: the flood God that brings to destroy the world. But we never stop to ask...why did God choose a flood, of all things? Interestingly, only last week, in the story of the creation of the world, we talked about all these same elements – deep waters, winds of God, and more. For some reason, the flood’s aftermath, the recreation of the world, mirrors the original creation in the Torah – but why? What is it we’re meant to learn from the flood??
The intriguing repetitions may change the entire way we think about the story of the flood.
