Why Does Lech Lecha Follow After Noach?

הלכות תפילין ה"ה

Why does Parshas Lech Lecha immediately follow after Parshas Noach?  Parshas Noach provides an excellent segue, for two items are highlighted in the parsha: 1. the righteousness of Noach, and 2. the fact that the flood waters never reached the borders of Eretz Yisroel (Bereshis Rabbah 33:6). Therefore, the perfect environment is created for Hashem to reveal the holiness of Eretz Yisroel to Avrohom Avinu in Parshas Lech Lecha.
