How many were saved in the ark?

Answer

"The long-suffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is,
eight souls were saved by water." 1 Peter 3: 20.
NOTE - Doubtless many who were lost in the Flood held, in a nominal way, to belief in God; but
the test as to the genuineness of this came with Noah's special message; and the difference between their
belief and his was made plain when they rejected the saving truth for that time-the warning message
concerning the coming Flood.
