The Ark of the Covenant is at once the most famous and baffling article in
history. Although it is cited more often than any other object throughout the Old
Testament and was described as the ancient Hebrews’ most precious
possession, its real meaning and ultimate fate were utterly unknown…until now.
During his worldwide research into its disappearance, author Frank Joseph
learned that the Ark was not a mere legend; nor was it just an elaborate box used
to store the original Ten Commandments. It was, he asserts, purpose-built to
harness the powers of the Earth for humanity’s continued physical existence
and spiritual evolution. As such, it is the single most priceless fortune mankind
has ever possessed.
Following the Ark through the Book of Exodus, he discovered its lineage
pre-dated the Bible, extending back in time to ancient Egypt and stories of lost
Atlantis. Joseph traced the exact circumstances of the Ark’s rediscovery under
Jerusalem’s Temple Mount by the Knights Templar. Having found the precious
object, they returned with it to France, where its clandestine journey across
Europe would last for the next 800 years.
Opening the Ark of the Covenant is the result of a quarter-century-long
investigation. It leads from the sea-bottom off the coast of Florida to the remote
heights of France’s Pyrenees Mountains and Japan’s secret shrines; from the
Nile Valley to the Valley of Mexico. This uniquely far-flung, in-depth hunt for the
truth about mankind’s most valuable possession reveals the Ark’s actual
function, purpose and location.
Opening the Ark of the Covenant is a fact-based examination of the Arks real
origins, manufactured purpose, historical application, and present whereabouts.
Revealing its genuine nature and ultimate destiny represents the most profound
disclosure of its kind, powerful enough to shake the foundations of established
religions and modern science alike.
