Biblical Mystery: What Is Gopher Wood?

Q: The Bible says that Noah built the Ark out of gopher wood. What IS gopher wood?

A: I’m not sure anyone really knows, since the Ark has never been found.

There is an ancient story that goes something like this:

God finished explaining the plans for the Ark to Noah.

Noah looked around for his sons, who would be his chief helpers on the project.

Then Noah said to them, “Go fer wood!”

The rest is history.
