The Ark of the Covenant is one of history's most famous lost objects. The Ark was built after God commanded Moses on Mount Sinai to build it to his exact specifications in order to hold the Ten Commandments. The Ark accompanied the Israelites on their journey to the Promised Land, being housed in a mobile shrine known as the tabernacle. Throughout the Old Testament, the Ark brings good fortune to the Israelites, helping them in battle and clearing the way for them when obstacles are encountered on the way to the Promised Land. Once in Canaan, The Ark of the Covenant was passed down from king to king until the Babylonians took Jerusalem - after this, mentions of the Ark are few and far between.
In this episode of Big, If True, we discuss the history of the Ark of the Covenant, breaking down the stories of Moses, Aaron, and Joshua, as well as exploring the many locations where the Ark might currently be.
