okay I was chatting online with an old friend and we were discussing the Ark of the Covenant. Of course the friend is a Southern Baptist and his knowledge of Biblical History was learned from misinformed grandparents. So you can understand that we have quite a difference of opinion.
I am quite the book nerd and can find historical, archeological, and scriptural evidence to back up my knowledge. (I am relearning a lot of things as I have been away from the church for a long time and have forgotten a lot of things.) He on the other hand must go and look at scripture only and decide the truth from there.
Now our debate was over the Ark of the Covenant and it’s where abouts. He says that they are in heaven and will be brought down by Angels when Jesus returns. Now my husband who went to Protestant Seminary says that they were just out and out lost in a temple somewhere, but that when Jesus returns he will know where that temple is and open it for himself.
Anyone familiar with this? I have read the archeological and historical findings online, but clueless on this story my friend has been told.
