A recently translated Hebrew text has offered a tantalizing new reference to several ancient treasures.

Quote

The text, known as the "Treatise of the Vessels", appears to describe what happened to a number of ancient treasures from King Solomon's temple including the fabled Ark of the Covenant, the biblical chest said to contain the original stone tablets on which the Ten Commandments were inscribed.

Now all we need is the relevant maps to go with the references of the age in question ...

I've heard that the Ark of the Covenant is in Axum, Ethiopia, in a temple.

I heard that it miraculously was mentioned first after the fall of Samaria with the influx of Samaritans in Judea... they found the Pentateuch by "accident" while working on the temple and that it "demonstrated" that the Samaritans and Judeans were of the same tribe.
(See The Bible Unearthed Finkelstein et al, 2005)

In any case, if the thingy ever existed it is either still in Samaria (the only likely place with an ancient Jewish or proto-Jewish temple because the best we can find in J'lem around that time is a chapel) or was destroyed by the Assyrians.

It's an anceint mystery, kind of like what the fox says.

In the beginning there were only probabilities. The universe could only come into existence if someone observed it. It does not matter that the observers turned up several billion years later. The universe exists because we are aware of it.

What is the provenance of the "Treatise of the Vessels"?

Can it be granted any validity in what it claims, or is it simply another article of faith, written on the back of other such articles?

Noah's Ark, the ark of the covenant, and Jimmy Hoffa walk into a Bar.Noah's Ark orders a "S** on the Beach", the Ark of the Covenant orders a "Bloody Mary".The Bartender asked Jimmy Hoffa what will he be having.Jimmy says he'll have just a plain Soda, because he is driving.

If you think that the Ark of the Covenant was stolen by the Babylonians, you completely misunderstand the bible.  Several attempts have been made to steal the Ark of the Covenant.  Read about those attempts.  If God doesn't want it found it won't be found.  If God gave it to a certain people to hide it, then it will go with them until the alotted time.  Many scientist and people believe or theorize that the Ark of the Covenant is some ancient artifact that can be approached and even touched under specific conditions.  But how can they understand what it truly is if they cannot understand the truth of God, how and where he exists.  If they do not truly know God, then without the proper conditions they are going to find themselves dead.
