A Woman Called Noah

  • Cast Number: 1
  • Run-time: 5 minutes
  • Bible Reference: Numbers 27

there are 2 Noah's in the Bible, and one is a woman! This Noah fought for women's rights! She confronted Moses about a situation that wasn't right. Her famous name caused her to behave in a certain way. Our name - Christian, does that make us behave in a certain way? It should!

Sample of script:

Noah enters stage from Downstage Left:

Hello. My name is Noah.Turns and walks toward Upstage Center, pauses, looks back at the audience over her shoulder).

You look surprised. Oh I see! You are thinking of Noah and the Flood, the Ark. Did you not realize that Noah who built the Ark was not the only Noah in the Bible? You don't believe me? Just look in Numbers, chapter 27. You'll see that I and my four sisters are mentioned there. Oh and don't feel badly about thinking that I was referring to (emphasize) "the other Noah". Throughout my life, on more than one occasion, people have made this mistake.

The fact is that there were our names were not really identical. They didn't mean exactly the same thing and weren't pronounced exactly the same. Mine is pronounced No`ah {no-aw'} and means "motion". Noah of the Ark was pronounced Noach {no'-akh} and means "rest". But certainly when you have a name so close to a well known and highly respected person from the past, there is bound to be some confusion.

Worse still there are bound to be . . . (emphasize) comparisons.You must realize that not only was our forefather Noah a beloved and revered part of our history, Noah was a man of God. Genesis records that, . . . . (take on an tone as one quoting from the Bible), "Noah was a righteous man, blameless among the people of his time and . . . (step forward, spread out arms and emphasize), and . . he . . walked . . . with . . . God"

And again it is written, (again take on tone as if quoting from the Bible), he did everything . . (emphasize), just . . . as . . . God . . . commanded . . . . him". Don't you see? Noah not only walked with God, he talked . . . . with God!
