Ark Of The Covenant Table Remains Found

leave a comment »

The remains of a table that legendarily held the Ark of the Covenant has been found by archaelogists in the ruins of the Queen of Sheba, the tenth century renowned beauty and Ethiopian ally of King Solomon.

According to the Bible, in 1 Kings 10, the Queen of Sheba journeyed to Jerusalem after hearing of King Solomon’s wisdom to see if what she had heard was true. So impressed was she that she gave large quantities of gold, spices and precious stones to the king of Israel.

“It was a true report which I heard in my own land about your words and your wisdom,” she said. “However I did not believe the words until I came and saw with my own eyes; and indeed the half was not told me. Your wisdom and prosperity exceed the fame of which I heard. Happy are your men and happy are these your servants, who stand continually before you and hear your wisdom! Blessed be the LORD your God, who delighted in you, setting you on the throne of Israel! Because the LORD has loved Israel forever, therefore He made you king, to do justice and righteousness.”

Ethiopian tradition claims the Ark, which contained Moses’ stone tablets on which the Ten Commandments were written, was smuggled to Ethiopia by their son Menelek and is still in that country.
