Biblical Mysteries #1: Ark of the Covenant


It is a quest that has fascinated scholars and adventurers for centuries. What happened to the treasure and centerpiece of ancient Jewish life—the Ark of the Covenant? No one knows what happened to it, but researchers never give up the search for what would be history’s greatest find.

Dove Review

“Biblical Mysteries: Ark of the Covenant” takes an interesting look at Michael Sanders’ goal to locate the Ark and the Ten Commandments that were placed inside. His studies reveal that Ramesses III possibly snatched the Ark away from Solomon’s Temple. Following this lead brings Sanders to Egypt, and Ramesses’ well-preserved mummy is seen in the film.

The documentary opens with a history of the Ark and flows into Sanders’ determined journey to find its current location. He runs into a major road block that he hopes to overcome. The movie does contain a brief scene of the Queen of Sheba beginning to undress with King Solomon, and the upper half of her rear is seen in a blurry haze as the scene fades out. However, we are awarding this documentary our Dove “Faith-Friendly” Seal for ages 12+. Its hypotheses and conjectures are plausible and fascinating.
