'Ark' revelation: Can they dig it? (Ark of the Covenant announcement 8 AM eastern)

Bible buzz begins as hunters wait to view Ten Commandments box

Ark hunters and Bible enthusiasts are buzzing about a report that the Ark of the Covenant, the ancient container that holds the Ten Commandments, is expected to be unveiled in Rome today.

As WND reported, the patriarch of the Orthodox Church of Ethiopia says he will announce to the world the unveiling of the Ark, which he says has been hidden away in a church in his country for millennia, according to the Italian news agency Adnkronos.

Abuna Pauolos, in Italy for a meeting with Pope Benedict XVI this week, told the news agency, "Soon the world will be able to admire the Ark of the Covenant described in the Bible as the container of the tablets of the law that God delivered to Moses and the center of searches and studies for centuries."

According to the Italian news agency, the announcement is expected to be made at 2 p.m. Italian time (8 a.m. Eastern) from the Hotel Aldrovandi in Rome. Pauolos will reportedly be accompanied by Prince Aklile Berhan Makonnen Haile Sellassie and Duke Amedeo D'Acosta.

"The Ark of the Covenant is in Ethiopia for many centuries," said Pauolos. "As a patriarch I have seen it with my own eyes and only few highly qualified persons could do the same, until now."

Bob Cornuke, biblical investigator, international explorer and best-selling author, has participated in more than 27 expeditions around the world searching for lost locations described in the Bible. A man some consider a real-life Indiana Jones, he has written a book titled "Relic Quest" about the Ark of the Covenant and participated in History Channel production called "Digging for Truth."

Just thought I'd post this for your review and discussion.

Would love to stick around to read all the comments but I've got to run out and take care of some important business.

Being as though the Ark of Covenant has exchanged many hands throughout history, I surmise all it will hold is perhaps ancient dust.

Well depends on your POV.

Ark of the Covenant led the Jews out of Egypt, holds the ten commandments, maybe a rod and some manna.

The Ark was also carried before the Jews into battle and is reputed to have assured their success.

Mystery has it that the Ark is returned to The Temple before the End of Days.

We're just really talking about a whole other political agenda here. The Ark, if the real one or even believed by Christians, Jews, and Muslims to be the real deal is the spark.

It’s too bad Micheal Jackson died. He probably would have wanted to buy the Ark.

I’m familiar with that passage. Some things just need to be left the hell alone. It’s been hidden for thousands of years for a good reason.

The Qur’an (2:248) states the following: “Their prophet said to them, “The sign of his kingship is that the Ark (of the Covenant) will come to you, containing serenity from your Lord and certain relics left by the families of Musa (Moses) and Harun (Aaron). It will be borne by angels. There is a sign for you in that if you believe.”

Don’t concern yourself with the missing link, they find a new one ever so often, which gets discredited as a fake or a monkey. Got to keep that funding you know.

And just where are the apes’ ancestors?
Do they have to find their own?

You’re right, though, every “missing link” is either a FULL human that they “ape-ize”, or a FULL ape that they “humanize”.
