I am not really satisified about the first set/pair of Tables of Stone which Moses shattered in anger & in disgust of the Israelites
Moses or the Priests really had to scour the area to recover every piece & fragment of those tables of stone containing the words of the Law & the
Covenant with the people...
otherwise leaving the shattered fragments of God's Law written in stone getting trampled under the feet of anyone present would amount to
'Dis-Respecting' the 'Word' ( remember that the 'Word' became 'Flesh' )
so. the actual stone tables, that were inscribed with the Laws & the Covenant (which possibly means Laser Cut into granite)
actually turns into a prophetic drama....along with being a physical reality
the Stone inscribed with the 10 commandments AKA; the 'Word'
just as the 'Word'
that became 'Flesh'... i.e. Jesus reenacted the same story-line as the 10 commandments, rejected and destroyed
i think the Mt Sinai 2 tablets drama is working on two different levels...both the immediate reality of the event and as a prophetic 'code' of what
will happen to a future Messiah
note in the Link that in Revelation the Arc-of-the-Covenant is presently up in Heaven in the Throne Room of God
Revelation 11:19 ESV
Then God's temple in heaven was opened, and the ark of his covenant was seen within his temple. There were flashes of lightning, rumblings, peals of
thunder, an earthquake, and heavy hail.
remember too that the Arc also doubles as a Seat (or even a Footstool)
there's a lot of double & triple meanings for the Arc/Covenant, as a functional piece of furniture or commode, perhaps even as a metaphor for an
osstuary (bone box)
