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.
Thanks for posting
Oh boy. Isn’t this like an sign of the apocalypse or something?
Note to self. If they open it, DON’T LOOK.
Wow! The Missing Link and now this, all within a few months of each other. In another few months someone will find Noah’s Ark!!!
Well, we have a little more than 30 minutes to wait for the big unveiling!
Breaking news? Are you kidding me? This isn’t Coast To Coast AM.
The Ark of the Covenant. The original Can of Woop-Ass!
No kidding. I’ll be watching with my hands over my eyes in case the released ghosts decide to do some face melting.
LOL LOL LOL....
Thanks for posting this news. Very interesting and exciting!
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.
Oh boy, another announcement that will rank right up there with the Segway and the “Missing Link”.
It’s too bad Micheal Jackson died. He probably would have wanted to buy the Ark.
well, if they do, I can imagine what the next terrorist attack will be aimed at...
