Ark of the Covenant to be revealed ?

The legendary biblical artefact may have to be moved from the church in which it is thought to reside.

The Ark of the Covenant was brought to the forefront of the public's imagination when it was featured in the Indiana Jones movie "Raiders of the Lost Ark". Said to have held the original tablets inscribed with the Ten Commandments, the Ark's whereabouts has never been confirmed however many believe it is located in a small chapel in Ethiopia. Now due to a leaky roof the Ark may need to be moved to a new home, providing a chance for historians to confirm or deny its presence there once and for all.

"The Ark - which The Bible says holds God's Ten Commandments given to Moses on Mount Sinai - is said to have been kept in Aksum, in the Chapel of the Tablet, adjacent to St Mary of Zion Church, since the 1960s."

If the claim has no value, that would obviously explain why more powerful individuals, agencies, or world governments haven't gone after it. I mean...think about some of the crazy Hitler stories, surely he would've probably sent some nazi's there to claim it. I wasn't trying to sound Indiana Jonse-y, but still...

where did you get the "proto-gunpowder" from? the arch never exploded. The Ark is constantly accompanied by clouds.Gold frition would `nt constantly do that.The ark had to be some kind of burning device.When the Jews traveled, they were led by the Ark and a pillar of clouds (Num. 10:34); at night, the pillar of clouds was replaced by a pillar of fire.

IIRC, there was a story that the Ethopians did hide it in WW2 because many Nazi artifact collectors did come sniffing around. Let me google around and see if I can find that story.

Hi again, Sorry abramelin and others, i should've quoted my source in my earlier post. The book i read was called from eden to exile by eric h cline - its about mysteries from the old testament, such as noah's ark and the ark of the covenant. It takes quite a sceptical view on most things. The book discusses ethiopia's claim to the ark and quotes a scholar called edward ullendorff, a retired professor of the university of london, as telling the los angeles times 'i've seen it. There was no problem getting access to it in 1941... they have a wooden box and its empty... middle to late middle med... [More]

I have a few books on the ark of the covenant as i love books about unexplained mysteries, though i must admit i haven't read everyone all the way through. Books i have are The templars and the ark of the covenant by graham phillips, which states the ark, or part of it ended up in england. The sign and the seal by graham hancock, the most famous ark book. The quest for the ark of the covenant by stuat munro hay, a rather dry, critical look at the ethiopian claims. searching for the ark of the covenant by randall price. The book i previously mentioned 'from ededn to exile' by eric h cline has a... [More]

That's definitely interesting, I never heard that one before, if you come across any information, definitely post it up! Thanks DC

The real ark is located either in Warehouse 13 or Area 51. Ethiopa has a fake one, because it is deemed to dangerous.

Well considering the amount of clutter I have in my room I might have it around here somewhere.
