Bible Quiz: How Many Sheep Were On the Ark?

How many sheep were on the ark?

The vast majority of Earthens will say that there were only 2 – and with all the pictures you’ve ever seen, I suppose you can’t blame them. But what does the bible say? I’ll give you a hint, it’s more than 10.

If you’re not familiar with where that section is in the bible, start reading in Genesis 6 verse 19. Read through the end of chapter 6 and then pause to think about what you just read. Now keep reading on into chapter 7 through verse 3.
