It is my understanding that the Queen of Sheba took the Ark to Ethiopia. What makes you think that the Knights Templar have it?
There are several theories as to where the Ark is. One of them is that its in Ethiopia. Another one is that the Knights Templar have it. Another is that its no longer on Earth. Another is that the Babylonians took it. Another is that its just entirely lost. The question of where it is is a topic for research, the purpose of this thread.
or the ark is under the calvary location and the blood of Jesus dripped down on the mercy seat of the ark when the ground broke open during the earthquake that split the curtain
Whilst in the chamber, Ron noticed a dried, black substance in an earthquake crack in the roof, above the Ark of the Covenant. He noticed that this black substance was also on the lid of the cracked stone casing. Obviously, this substance had dripped from the crack in the roof, and provision had been made for it to land on the Ark of the Covenant, as the stone lid had been cracked and moved aside
1) Temple Mount, Jerusalem Temple Mount contains secret underground passageways that belonged to the original Temple of Solomon and survived the temple's destruction by the Babylonians in 586 BCE. 2) Treasury of the Church of Saint Mary of Zion, Axum, Ethiopia Axum is Ethiopia's holiest city, and the Church of Saint Mary of Zion its holiest church. The Treasury, a separate building located just behind the church, was said to house the Ark of the Covenant, supposedly brought there by Menelik I, the son of King Solomon and the Queen of Sheba. (Menelik means 'son of the wise man', and the ancient kingdom of Sheba is believed to have incorporated Ethiopia.) 3) Chalice Well, Glastonbury, England Legend says that Joseph of Arimathea was imprisoned after Jesus' death. When he was released, he fled from the Holy Land and took the Holy Grail to the safe haven of Glastonbury in England. He hid the Grail at the bottom of Chalice Well at the foot of Glastonbury Tor, a sacred mound overlooking the town of Glastonbury. The well's water is allegedly tinged red and reputed to have healing powers. 4) Schatzkammer (Imperial Treasury), Hofburg Palace, Vienna, Austria The Schatzkammer houses the Imperial Regalia of the Holy Roman Empire; the European empire created by Charlemagne and dissolved centuries later by Napoleon Bonaparte. 5) Oak Island, Nova Scotia, Canada A small, remote island off the east coast of Canada, practically uninhabited, and reputed to be the site of a vast, inaccessible buried treasure located at the bottom of a booby-trapped, intricately constructed 200-feet-deep vertical shaft known as the Money Pit. Originally, pirates were thought to have buried the treasure; Captain Kidd and Blackbeard being the most likely candidates. However, some experts have said pirates lacked the engineering skills to construct such a complex structure. Leonardo Da Vinci has been mentioned as a possible designer of the pit. Other theories claim that Freemasons or the Knights Templar created it. Following the forcible arrest of the Knights Templar in 1307, those leaders of the Order who managed to evade capture gave instructions for their treasure to be hidden from their enemies. It was removed by the ships of the Templar Fleet and vanished from history. Some accounts say it included the Holy Grail and the Ark of the Covenant. Several experts believe the Templars discovered the Americas before Columbus, and that the Templar Fleet possibly went to North America to bury the treasure. 6) Rosslyn Chapel, Edinburgh, Scotland Rosslyn chapel was built between 1446 and 1486 and is often described as the most mysterious Christian chapel in the world. Like Oak Island, Rosslyn is linked with the lost treasure of the Knights Templar, including the Holy Grail and the Ark of the Covenant. Many Templars fled to Scotland in the years after 1307 because the Scottish king, Robert the Bruce, wasn't bound by the Papal edict to suppress the Templars because he had been excommunicated. Several experts believe the Templars regrouped in Scotland and eventually emerged in a new guise - the Freemasons. Informed speculation says that Freemasonry originated specifically at Rosslyn. 7) Hill of Tara, Republic of Ireland Ancient Ireland's most sacred site where the High Kings of Ireland were crowned. Legend says that the Hebrew prophet Jeremiah brought the Ark of the Covenant to Ireland for safekeeping after the destruction of King Solomon's Temple, burying it somewhere on the Hill of Tara.

I am in the camp that the Ark was a stolen Egyptian item. The depictions of the arch-angel Michael on the Ark are actually of Horus. It wouldn't have been the first nor the last time a religion co-opted the images of another. Regardless of what it was originally the Ark is a very interesting relic. Can't wait to see what else gets added to this thread.

This lends to the story that Moses was not a jew, but an Egyptian, and also Moses isnt a name, it's a title.
Confused, well our whole past history is a tangled web of myths and legends. I believe that our TRUE history has been covered up.

Look at this passage Exodus 3:13-14 (King James Version):
13And Moses said unto God, Behold, when I come unto the children of Israel, and shall say unto them, The God of your fathers hath sent me unto you; and they shall say to me, What is his name? what shall I say unto them?
You see how Moses referred to them as the children of Israel? Also take note of how he talks to "god" he says "God of YOUR fathers" you see how he said Your and not ours?
Now look take a look at (Exodus 4:1):
They will not believe me, nor hear my voice, but they will say: The Lord hath not appeared to thee.
Moses said that when talking to God, he doubts that he will convince the Hebrews to follow him because of his Egyptian heritage.
Just take a time and read through the Exodus in the bible and maybe you would see how the Hebrews treated Moses and his brother Aaron.
Also read through the site that I have given you and you would *maybe* understand.

I have read it could be in the "money pit" on Oak Island, also. This theory is tied loosely to the Templers, Henry Sinclair, the Freemasons etc also.
