    What Happened To The Ark of the Covenant?

    What is the last known location of the Ark of the Covenant? What is the history of the Ark of the Covenant and where is it's possible location?

    Last I heard, no one knows for sure, but I remember reading somewhere that some think the Jewish rabbis know where it is. If it exists, it is probably in Israel, hidden.

    It disappeared about the time the Babylonians sacked Jerusalem. It may have been hidden away by the priests of the Temple, but more likely it was taken as part of the loot by the invaders. The odd lack of any mention of it in the Temple literature since then looks like deliberate redaction. Since the Ark was to have made the Israelites invincible in battle, and it did not, that omission can be taken as a political device to support the needs of the ruling class following its restoration by the Persians when they overran Babylon. Their defeat and captivity (it was, after all, only the upper classes that were taken to Babylon, not the commoners) made a strong argument that the Ark's reputation as an artifact of supernatural power in the real world was mythological, and the rulers of Judah, who after Babylon were desperately seeking a way to get back into God's good graces and their own positions of social privilege, wealth and power, would not want to highlight that.

    So goes my view of it, at any rate. This perspective is not meant to challenge or offend people who see it differently. YMMV.

    I have read that some believe that the Jewish people represent the Ark of the Covenant. I have also read that it may be buried in a pit on an island in Nova Scotia and people have been unable to recover it after years of trying  and at great expense.There have been some claims that it is in a temple in Etheopia and some believe that it is buried under the Temple of the Mount in Jerusalem. I have heard that it may be radio active, for those who have come close have exhibited symptoms of being exposed to this. According to the book of Exodus, it contains only the stones inscribed with the ten commandments that Moses was given on the mount. Although we may seek it, God may not have intended for us to have it in our hands again.
