Home What was the Ark of the Covenant, and was it real? The Ark of the Covenant was definitely real and was a part of the tabernacle, being placed in the Holy of Holies behind the curtain. I will include articles below from three Bible Dictionaries that will give you some information. It will be basically the same information, but each might add something more to help you.
Excerpts from and adaptations of the writings of Mrs. He was never allowed to provide conclusive evidence. Ron Wyatt also claimed to have found the Ark in - but how do you know who to believe?
Until you can see solid evidence for yourself, you cannot know for sure who is telling the true story. From there they drove to the western shore of the Gulf of Aqaba for scuba diving in search of chariot parts in the Red Sea.
Ron became sun-burned and was forced to discontinue his diving in the Red Sea. While waiting for his return flight to the United States, Ron was walking along an ancient stone quarry, known to some as "the Calvary Escarpment.
In fact, it was the first time he had ever thought about excavating for the Ark. The man with him, quite out of character, also reacted strangely. Ron returned home and began some serious research and study.
Since the temple was completely destroyed, there is no doubt that it was NOT there after that time. Ron found in 2 Kings Neither is it mentioned in the lists of things brought back from Babylon in the book of Ezra.
We are told in Jeremiah Shishak and Sennacherib also took items from the "house of the Lord" but they did not include the Ark of the Covenant. The Ark of the Covenant was hidden just prior to the destruction of the temple when the city was surrounded by the Babylonian siege wall.
The Ark of the Covenant was hidden somewhere within the confines of the city wall of Jerusalem and the Babylonian siege wall.
The site Ron had pointed to was, he believed, outside of the ancient city wall and within the siege wall. Two non-Biblical sources, 2 Maccabees and Parilipomena of Jeremiah, stated that the sacred objects from the temple were hidden by Jeremiah before the destruction of Jerusalem by Nebuchadnezzar.
It was supposition based on study, but still only supposition. Yet, it was enough to base a decision on. He decided to go ahead with the excavation. They would eventually remove many tons of rock and debris, sifting through all of it for artifacts: A requirement of the Department of Antiquities which they were happy to comply with.
They began by digging straight down along a cliff face, forming a steep wall with the earth they removed. Almost immediately, Ron noticed a "shelf-like" niche cut into the face of the cliff. Digging down further, he discovered there were three of these "niches" cut into the face of the cliff with a smaller one on the right side.
As Ron continued to dig he found a First Century building. His conclusion that it was a First Century building was based on the fact that the earliest coin he found in the dig was a Roman coin of Tiberius who was Emperor from 14 to 37 AD; the latest coins being from about AD.
This building was built directly adjacent to the cliff-face and portion of the back wall extended along the actual face of the cliff. The foundations of the building were still in place.
When he lifted it, he discovered that it was covering a squarish hole chiseled into the bedrock. Stone covering "Squarish Hole" As he examined this hole and cleared away the dirt around it, he discovered that it had a large crack extending out from it. As they removed more dirt and debris, he discovered a platform-like shelf of bedrock which extended out about 8 feet from the face of the cliff, and this squarish hole was chiseled in this "shelf.
He was convinced that these holes once held crosses. The building structure that remained intact showed that it originally covered the entire site. It appeared that this was the place where the "featured" criminal-victim was crucified, being elevated several feet above those crucified around him.
He believed that the one elevated above the rest on the shelf-like platform of bedrockheld the cross of Christ. The crack extending out from the cross-hole on the elevated "platform" appeared to Ron to have been caused by an earthquake.
It displayed no evidence of being chiseled.As regular readers will recall, according to a Facebook broadcast this fall, Scott F. Wolter of America Unearthed and J. Hutton Pulitzer, formerly of Curse of Oak Island, planned to announce their belief that they knew the burial site of the Ark of the Covenant near Oak grupobittia.com seems Curse stole their thunder by remaking Wolter’s first excursion in search of the Ark .
The Ark of the Covenant was a kind of chest, measuring two cubits and a half in length, a cubit and a half in breadth, and a cubit and a half in height. Made of setim wood (an incorruptible acacia), it was overlaid within and without with the purest gold, and a golden crown or rim ran around it.
Below is the testimony from Henry Gruver about a document specialist confirming the authenticity of the lab reports on Jesus' blood. Some folks have said there is NOT a lab report on the blood, but we have three people that were told by Ron that there are lab reports.
