The Ark & the Temple Mount

Robotwisdom.com points to an interesting Ha'aretz article that outlines the events of 1981 at Jerusalem's Temple Mount:

“At the time, it was officially announced that the huge tunnel under the structure of the Dome of the Rock had been discovered by chance during preparation of a niche for a holy ark at the Western Wall. Only years later did two members of the committee appointed by the government to investigate the affair disclose that the story about the niche for a holy ark was merely a cover-up for the real story.”

Also of note:

  • The Falashas are the self-proclaimed “House of Israel.” Ethiopian Jews (now, for the most part, all living in Israel) who claim to be descended from Solomon and the Ethiopian Queen of Sheba. They also claim that the Ark of the Covenant was brought to Ethiopia in the 10th Century BC.
  • This article poses the question Where has the Ark of the Covenant Been? Possibilities include the afore-mentioned Ethiopia, under the Temple Mount, and in caves near the Dead Sea.
