The Ark of the Covenant Is In Ethiopia

The Ark of the Covenant is the sacred container of the Ten Commandments, as written in The Old Testament. The Ark of the Covenant is said to be made of wood but is covered with gold. On to of it are two cherubs facing each other with outstretched wings to form the throne of God. Aside from the tablets where the Ten Commandments were originally written, the Ark is also said to contain Manna, the mythical food that the Israelites fed themselves while wandering in the desert.

The Ark of the Covenant has long been the subject of searches and studies for a long time. Even its weight have been argued upon, ranging from 180 to 8,000 pounds.

It seems, though, that the searches and studies and arguments are about to end. That is, if what the Orthodox Church of Ethiopia says is the Ark of the Covenant, is really what they claim it to be.

Abuna Pauolos already met with Pope Benedict XVI at the Vatican City to tell the news about the presence of the Ark in Ethiopia. Pauolos also says that it will be revealed to the public today (Friday).

Many believe that Emperor Menelik I, son of King Solomon and the Queen of Sheba, brought the Ark to Ethiopia. Menelik I was Ethiopia's first Jewish emperor.

Pauolos says the Ark has been in Ethiopia for centuries and he has seen it with his own eyes. Few highly qualified persons has also seen the Ark and now they're revealing it for the public to view.

I just wonder what took them long to show it, or to say that it's even there. Let's just hope that it's not a hoax.


  1. 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.

    Maybe you can tell me if this for real.
