Platform found in Israel may have held Ark of Covenant

By Around the Web

(Christian Post) Archaeologists in Israel have unearthed a massive man-made platform that could contain clues about the Ark of the Covenant.

Israel Finkelstein, an archaeologist at Tel Aviv University, told The Times of Israel that the eighth century BCE shrine was believed to have held the Ark of the Covenant. The Ark is said in the Bible to contain the two stone tablets of the Ten Commandments given by God to Moses.

The Ark is believed to have been kept at Kiriath-Jearim for 20 years, until it was paraded by King David in Jerusalem.
