In a stunning archeological find, the resting place of the biblical ‘ark of the covenant’ has been unearthed inside of a 3000 year old temple in Israel.
As The Daily Mail reports:
Religious archaeologists in Israel claim they have discovered the stone on which Ark of Covenant once sat.
The biblical claim was made by researchers from Tel Aviv University who found a 3,100-year-old temple near the modern-day town of Beit Shemesh…
Archaeologists say it is strikingly similar to the mythical ‘large stone’ described in the First Book of Samuel…
Excavations of the 12th century BC temple reveal it was subsequently plundered and ‘intentionally desecrated’ by the nearby Philistines who turned it into an animal pen.
The true resting place of the Ark has long been a source of speculation that existed primarily in the realm of legend, until now it seems.
