Digging for the Truth: Hunt for the Lost Ark

with one comment

For centuries, adventurers, and archeologists–the devout and determined, and even Indiana Jones–have all searched for the Bible’s most sacred lost treasure: the Ark of the Covenant. Yet, despite all its fame, it mysteriously disappeared from the pages of history tens of centuries ago. How could something so powerful and holy simply vanish? That’s what host and adventurer Josh Bernstein is determined to find out when he follows a trail that starts where the Ark’s story begins–on Mount Sinai. Next, he explores a secret maze beneath Jerusalem’s streets, and visits Deir es Sultan, an Ethiopian monastery located on the roof of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. In Ethiopia, he climbs up a sheer cliff to reach Debre Damo, one of the country’s most ancient monasteries, and travels across Lake Tana to the place where some say the Ark is kept today. But how close can he get to this mighty and mysterious treasure?

  1. I like the new look, Tsedey!

    Why is it that the Raiders in the “Indiana Jones” movies always dig in the wrong place? May be God is protecting the entrance to his kingdom from the wrong people by leading them to the wrong place.
