The Christian concept of the Ark of the Covenant often aligns with the original Jewish one. However, there is a radical departure on the subject when it comes to equating the Ark with questions of Messianic connections. With due respect for religious sensitivities on this broader topic, our focus is restricted towards the immediate topic of interest on the Trail of the Ark. The current interest relates to proving the Ark’s existence.
While we have countless scientific research papers to draw upon, the basic tenet of faith as to where millions of global adherents to specific religious convictions stand on this initial question provides an important key to answer this enquiry. We provide just one source to demonstrate a Christian biblical source of the question of the Ark’s existence.
“Then God’s temple in Heaven was opened,
and within His temple was seen the ark of His covenant.
And there came flashes of lightning, rumblings, peals of thunder,
an earthquake and a great hailstorm.” (Revelation 11:19)
Our ongoing quest will reveal many differences of opinion between the various Christian denominations associated with other pressing Ark topics. Meanwhile, it can be confidently said that the search for the lost Ark has been of tremendous interest to many Christians. The same can be said for most attempts to locate all missing temple artefacts. Numerous archaeological surveys in the Holy Land are sponsored through Christian organisations. There have been considerable discoveries met along the way.
