Q. I have a question regarding the temple artifacts that are being made by the temple mount institute/newly reformed sanhedrin. If all these artifacts are being made, (I read an article where the menorah was recently made) are the Jewish people planning on rebuilding the ark of the covenant? Or have they maybe secured the original? Please express your thoughts on this.
A. As far as I know there’s no talk of re-creating the Ark of the Covenant. Temple Institute leaders believe that since the Ark was neither lost nor destroyed but is hidden, God will reveal its location to them when the time is right, so there’s no need to build another one. According to their web site, “This location is recorded in our sources, and today, there are those who know exactly where this chamber is. And we know that the ark is still there, undisturbed, and waiting for the day when it will be revealed.”
