‘As in the Days of Noah…’

Many believe that, when Christ said these words, He was painting a picture of normal life: where everyone is living their lives and planning their futures as though there was no danger of impending destruction (Matt 24:37-39).  On the surface, this would be the correct interpretation of this passage.  However, as with most of Scripture, there is a hint of a deeper meaning in Christ’s warning, and I believe we should be aware of that deeper allusion.
