Ark of the Covenant

This documentary video shows you how the Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo church has the Ark of Covenant and Ten Commandments. The Digging for the Truth shows the search for the Ark of the Covenant and how history links the findings to Ethiopia.

Who cares about a fake ‘Ark of the Covenant.’ Stephan Huller has an academic article coming up which proves that this:

is the original Episcopal throne of Alexandria, mentioned in the Acts of Peter the Patriarch, Origen, Clement and other sources and dated to the first century.

I read the book. I loved it but I want to know what everyone else thinks? I think its very important but I am not an expert.

I found his blog with additional information:

Maybe you can tell me if this for real.

ADDIS ABABA – The head of the Orthodox Church of
Ethiopia has stated that the Ark of the Covenant
will be revealed to the public.

Abuna Pauolos is in Vatican City this week,
meeting with Pope Benedict XVI. It is from this
holy city that Pauolos confirmed the Ark of the
Covenant’s presence in Ethiopia, and that he will
be announcing its unveiling this Friday: “Soon
the world will be able to admire the Ark of the
Covenant described in the Bible as the container
of the tablets of the law that God delivered to
Moses and the center of searches and studies for centuries.”

The Ark is a sacred container written of in the
Old Testament. It is said to contain the original
Ten Commandments tablets, as well as some manna,
the mythical food that the Israelites ate while wandering through the desert.

It was made of wood, but covered in pure gold. On
top, two cherubim faced each other, their wings
outspread to form the “throne of God”. It’s
supposed weight has been widely debated, with
numbers ranging from 180 to 8,000 pounds!

Theologians have never been able to agree on the
Ark’s fate, but many believe Menelik I brought it
to Ethiopia. Menelik was the son of King Solomon
and the Queen of Sheba, and was the first Jewish emperor of Ethiopia.

Today, the Ethiopian Orthodox Church boasts that
it sits under lock and key in the Chapel of the
Tablet, near the Church of Our Lady Mary of Zion.
It is only used occasionally in ritual
processions, but almost no one has seen it, let
alone gotten photographic evidence.

Said Pauolos, “The Ark of the Covenant is in
Ethiopia for many centuries. As a patriarch I
have seen it with my own eyes and only few highly
qualified persons could do the same, until now.”

Even UFOlogists are excited, as some believe the
Ark is an example of alien intervention in
ancient times. They interpret its its
supernatural aspects literally, such as that the
operator had to wear a special gem-adorned
breastplate, or that it could be used as a weapon of mass destruction.

The world anxiously awaits his announcement
tomorrow. But will it be the real Ark, or just a hoax?
