Brief Summary

The Ark of the Covenant was a small box that contained the actual Ten Commandments written by the finger of God. The Ark first appeared in the Bible during the time of Moses around 1500 BC, after the Israelites had escaped Egypt through the miraculous parting of the Red Sea. They were led by the mysterious Shekinah Glory cloud, which looked like a tornado during the day and pillar of fire during the night. This glory cloud led the Israelites all the way to Mt. Sinai where God gave them his Ten Commandments, even though there was rebellion brewing in their hearts. It was here on Mt. Sinai that God revealed to Moses the detailed description of the Ark of the Covenant.
