When it comes to the missing Ark of the Covenant, there are more legends and myths to be found of this ancient relic than of any other relic in the
entire world. Some people believe the Ark is hidden in caverns underneath Mt. Hermon walled up in a secret alcove until the jews find it safe to
rebuild their destroyed temple, others believe it was destroyed by the Babylonians when they sacked Jerusalem and looted the Temple of Solomon. Yet
others still claim that a group of priests escaped with the Ark and took it south down the Nile river to Ethiopia (link below).
If it is in Ethiopia why has Israel not reclaimed it? It holds the relics of the staff of Moses and the stone tablets the Commandments were rewritten
on by Moses after he angrily used the tablets God wrote with his own hand to destroy the golden calf, and the sacred manna God gave the Israelites
during their 40 year sojourn in the wilderness.
I would imagine that a relic such as this would be a treasure closes to any jews' heart as the Ark was the vessel that held the Lord's presence when
it was in the Holy of Holies. This relic tantalizes the minds of christians, jews and muslims alike, although the muslim would probably not want it
found because it would solidify the jewish right to jerusalem and the right to rebuild the temple.
Is there anyone out there who can say 100% for a fact that they have seen the Ark of the Covenant and know the true location of its resting place, or
has it been destroyed?
If this holy relic is indeed in Ethiopia why does Israel not demand it be returned? One could conclude that it belongs to them by right, not some
other country far away. Has Israel forgotten the Ark and what it meant to them? So many mysteries tied to one object. So many would be conquerors
ranging from Napolean to Adolf Hitler sought this relic, for the belief it still held God's power, so many madmen.
