Q. I would like to know if you know what happened to the ark of the covenant. I know about the ark but I don’t know what happened to it. I know that they took the staff and the bowl of manna out but where is the ark?
A. The Ark’s location is the topic of great controversy. Some believe it’s under the Temple Mount in a sealed off compartment. Others claim it’s in Ethiopia in a Coptic Christian Church. Still others say it’s hidden in the desert East of Jerusalem. The proponents of each view claim to either have personally seen it, or know of reputable people who have. Obviously it can’t be in all these places, but for now we don’t know for sure if it’s in any of them.
