Posted on 01/12/2014 8:22:51 AM PST by 12th_Monkey
A newly translated Hebrew text claims to reveal where treasures from King Solomon's temple were hidden and discusses the fate of the Ark of the Covenant itself.
But unlike the Indiana Jones movie "Raiders of the Lost Ark," the text leaves the exact location of the Ark unclear and states that it, and the other treasures, "shall not be revealed until the day of the coming of the Messiah son of David " putting it out of reach of any would-be treasure seeker.
King Solomon's Temple, also called the First Temple, was plundered and torched by the Babylonian King Nebuchadnezzar II in the sixth century B.C., according to the Hebrew Bible. The Ark of the Covenant is a chest that, when originally built, was said to have held tablets containing the 10 commandments. It was housed in Solomon's Temple, a place that contained many different treasures.
The newly translated text, called "Treatise of the Vessels" (Massekhet Kelim in Hebrew), says the "treasures were concealed by a number of Levites and prophets," writes James Davila, a professor at the University of St. Andrews, in an article in the book "Old Testament Pseudepigrapha More Noncanonical Scriptures Volume 1" (William B. Eerdmans Publishing Co., 2013).
"Some of these (treasures) were hidden in various locations in the Land of Israel and in Babylonia, while others were delivered into the hands of the angels Shamshiel, Michael, Gabriel and perhaps Sariel " writes Davila in his article.
The treatise is similar in some ways to the metallic "Copper Scroll," one of the Dead Sea Scrolls found near the site of Qumran in the West Bank. The Copper Scroll also discusses the location of hidden treasure, although not from Solomon's Temple.

Interesting times we’re living in...
My bet is that “Messiah” is actually “moshiach”, or anointed one in Hebrew. David and Solomon were so anointed and considered with the expectation that the title, in its God directed humanity would so continue in history yet to be written.
The ark is still not located. This bit of non canonical writing gives lots of possible locations including with the angels in heaven,
All in all not that interesting a read
According to the show “America Unearthed”, it’s somewhere in the mid-West.
There has been conciderably more than the usual reporting of non-stories the past couple weeks from the msm. It's so bad they're recycling years old articles with no updates. In related news, MSNBC has hired a Head of Propaganda who is reviewing every story online and in print so all this might be because he's still decorating his office so no new news can be reported.
From one of your links...
“Kaduris Portrayal of the Messiah
A few months before Kaduri died at the age of 108, he surprised his followers when he told them that he met the Messiah. Kaduri gave a message in his synagogue on Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, teaching how to recognize the Messiah. He also mentioned that the Messiah would appear to Israel after Ariel Sharons death. (The former prime minister is still in a coma after suffering a massive stroke more than a year ago.) Other rabbis predict the same, including Rabbi Haim Cohen, kabbalist Nir Ben Artzi and the wife of Rabbi Haim Kneiveskzy.”
Jesus is coming. Everyone look busy!
I look at America’s abandonment of Israel as “the big sign.” This will continue with the election of Hillary Clinton in 16
