"In this program we are introduced to the idea of the Ark of the Covenant being kept safe in Ethiopia. The entire program focuses on how the Ark could have been moved from the Temple to Ethiopia and from that perspective it is fascinating. An understanding of cultural significance evolves and a deeper understanding of a culture still focusing on the Ark of the Covenant may be a surprise to many. If you have any interest in researching this topic, then this will be a brief introduction to a fascinating idea of spiritual significance.

"This presentation has nothing going for it...Aside from the narrator quoting long passages directly out of scripture,and a few second-rate experts making bold if otherwise speculative statements,this program says very little about where the ark may be,or what may have happened to it..."

"This well-produced DVD is an excellent summary of various theories of what happened to the fabled Ark of the Covenant. The theories range from nonexistence to hidden under Jerusalem's Temple Mount in a secret chamber. The DVD is almost entirely about the Ethiopian and Temple Mount theroies. The most interesting aspect is how the 2 theories are merged into a coherent whole. Tantalizing is the fact that there may be 2 Arks, both of which the locations are known but access is prohibited. Both the photography and narration are very good. Bibical scholars provide good commentary. My only criticism is of the reenactments. Most are too "Hollywood" with the actors looking like Caucasians dressed in costumes rather than ancient Isrealites. Especially recommended for those who like Biblical mysteries."
