Q. On TV recently, (a well known author) indicated that the Ark has been moved to Israel from Ethiopia and will be present in the Third Temple.
You and I both believe the Ark is lost and will never be recovered because its presence is never mentioned again. Would you comment, please.
A. This author has insisted that the ark is in Ethopia for many years now, and claims to know its exact heavily guarded location. I have no idea how he would know if it has been returned to Israel. If the Ark will be present in the coming Temple, you’d think that Ezekiel would have mentioned in in his detailed description of the Holy of Holies (Ezekiel 41), but he didn’t.
