"Lake Tiberias, also known as the Sea of Galiliee, is thought by a group of Shia Muslims to be the current resting place of the Ark of the Covenant.

"One Shia sect of Islam puts credence in a Hadith (these are most commonly sayings attributed to Mohammed or commentary on something he did) that states the Ark of the Covenant will rise from Lake Tiberias. There is catch, however — the Ark will only be discovered after the rise of Mahdi, who will rule the Earth for a disputed time period prior to the Day of Judgement.'"

Many consider the Mahdi to be the anti-Christ.

Obviously,it is in Axum Ethiopia in a church and as far as I know Islam has no connection with the Ark of the Covennant;instead they think of it as Idolatry!

The Ark's existence is documented in the histories of the Old Testament, but unless you find it, you can't "show" what's lost.

The entire 'Mahdi' story is a fairy tale.

Did you ever read the bible? I doubt it! It is a sacred powerfull religious object which the bible says can cause unseen miseries on an entire population if uncovered.It's a holy object and not for show definetly.Our preists follow the religious teachings but some of the curious west like to look at it or even want to do some research as to its making diregarding the fact that it's the only object God promised through to humankind.Only a single annonioted preist can near it leave alone to put it on display!

The arc is in ethiopia. but i dont think you will ever see it. All historical churches have a replica and non have the original. It is hidden . hidden some where no one knows but the choseen few , think of them as a secret sosyety . we live in a very hostile place and they are not just going to even keep it at axum sion. the one in axum sion might be the first replica but not the original. its hidden. there is a story of how they have to always stay ahead of people and always confuse the exsistance of the actuall place. i always wanted to see it or at least be displayed for the world but i dont think it will happen.

Tigrayans claim to have it. What I'm saying is if they want to prove the doubters wrong, simply display it. But everyone knows its B.s.

There are also many, many places -- at least eight -- where Jimmy Hoffa is said to be buried. Maybe I'm going out on a limb here, but sometimes you have to be daring: Could Jimmy Hoffa and the Ark of the Covenant be the same thing? I'm not saying they are, OK?, I'm just saying. Just saying. And I'll leave it at that. A stretch, I know, but compelling nevertheless. I think once all the dots get connected it'll paint an eye-opening picture, like Happy the Tugboat or L'il Lotta or even Sluggo. I just want to put it out there, OK?

.....Professor Edward Ullendroff, the first incumbent of the only chair of Ethiopian Studies in Great Britain. His book Ethiopia and the Bible, published by Oxford University Press, is acknowledged as the classic scholarly work in the field on religion in Ethiopia. When Graham Hancok's book on the Ark in Ethiopia, the Sign and the Seal, was first released, the press sought Ullendroff as an expert to give his evaluation of Hancock's theory. In an interview with the Los Angeles Times, Ullendroff, after calling Handcock's book "a sad joke," declared that he had personally seen the object in Axum: "They have a wooden Box, but it's empty....Middle to late medieval construction, when these were fabricated ad hoc." Ullendorff went on to say that the priests and the government perpetuate an aura of mystery around the object "mostly to maintain the idea that it's a venerated object." Yet Hancock and Cornuke, as well as other Westerners who have visited the site, have claimed that no one is permitted to enter the church and view the Ark.

Ullendrof, to the contrary, say this is simply because they were Westerners who had no knowledge of Ethiopian language or customs: "I've seen it. There was no problem getting access when I saw it in 1941....You need to be able to speak their language, classical Ge'ez; you need to be able to show that you're serious."Therefore, according to this expert witness, the object in Axum is a medieval relic that can be viewed by anyone who the priests choose to let see it.

Because the Kebra Negast supports the claim of the royal house, it has become the national epic of the country and the possession of its "ark" is essential to maintaining Abyssinian Christian supercession. It is also held to be the Ark by the "faithful" and generally acknowledged as such by the entire population who regard it as part of their national pride. Therefore, regardless what is in the Axum chapel, the Ethiopians still claim it is the Ark.

The original ark was heavy 4 people only could carry it.this replica could carry by one person so how can imagine one is the replicate of another?the other thing the only guardian monk when he interviewed his excellency said Zion tabot and all we have are the same,this is contrary to the fact about quantities.so finally Ethiopia have no the ark but inspired to have and expressing its good will for the Zion tabot by modeling the miniature and worship his unique power that is it.

Did He say anything about the weight? No!
The Ullendorf guy is bluffing;he didn't saw it! Even the Patriarch of the church don't go in to such temptation!Why would the Priests and especially the Guardian preist lie? For tourist attraction? It has been there for ages and no one think of a different thing except it's devin power!
