Where is the Ark of Covenant?

Post  Waqar Daniel on Tue 24 Jul 2007, 9:20 am

Most Bible scholars assume that the ark was destroyed at the time of the destruction of Jerusalem by the Babylonians under the leadership of Nebuchadnezzar. Two other views are often heard. One is that Jeremiah hid the ark before the destruction of Jerusalem and that it just remains to be found or revealed when the Jews are ready to build the next Temple.


Another view is that the ark was supernaturally transported to heaven.

The major proof for this is Revelation 11:19 - "And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in his temple the ark of his testament." The problem with the theory that Jeremiah (or someone else) hid the ark is that is is just a theory. No scripture or other reliable source supports this theory. As to the ark being transported to heaven: this is also nothing more than speculation. The fact that there is an ark in the heavenly temple does not mean it is the ark constructed by Moses.



There is a passage in Jeremiah that seems to disprove the alternative theories:

Jeremiah 3:16-17 And it shall come to pass, when ye be multiplied and increased in the land, in those days, saith the LORD, they shall say no more, The ark of the covenant of the LORD: neither shall it come to mind: neither shall they remember it; neither shall they visit it; neither shall that be done any more. At that time they shall call Jerusalem the throne of the LORD; and all the nations shall be gathered unto it, to the name of the LORD, to Jerusalem: neither shall they walk any more after the imagination of their evil heart.



God bless
