BIBLE MYSTERIES -

An Aid To the
Tribulation Period


~ # ~


This web site intends to approach ancient mysteries presented by the Holy Scriptures with some modern insights and applications. Due to improvements in archaeology and wider funding for searching out ancient sites, much information is coming into the market of ideas; a good deal of it is supportive of traditional interpretive ideas, some of it appears contradictory, and some is simply apostate.

For example, by using the interpretation of Numbers presented on this site, a prophetic calendar can be constructed. Here we combine the ancient Julian Calendar with the modern calendar version. The Julian Calendar postulates that in the year 4713BC the lunar cycle [12 months of 29½ days, or 354 days a year] and the solar cycle [365¼ days a year as computed today] and the Roman Indication Cycle [15 years] exactly coincided, and they would run their separate courses for 7980 years, when they would exactly coincide again. The date 4713BC was supposedly set arbitrarily in 1582 by the scholar Joseph Scaliger, although there may be evidence that that date was chosen earlier.

the Mystery of
The ARK OF THE COVENANT
~
bowing before the Ark of the Covenant
from Reader's Digest MYSTERIES OF THE BIBLE; copyright © 1988

Much has been written about the fate of the ancient Ark of the Covenant; some believe it was carried off by foreign conquerors centuries before the time of Jesus; some believe it is in Axum, Ethiopia; and some believe it is where it has almost always been: on the Temple Mount.

Author Randall Price has written variously on these matters [especially Searching for The Ark of The Covenant, Harvest House Publishers, Eugene, OR; copyright © 2005]. He cites some of the Hasidim of Israel who claim to know where the Ark is, and that it is hidden within the Temple Mount in a maze of tunnels, some blocked up or hidden.

This author is inclined to this idea, mostly due to Revelation, Chapter 11; speaking of the Two Witnesses, verse 8 states: And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified. Verse 19 contains the last mention of the Ark in Scripture: And the temple of G·d was opened in heaven, and there was seen in His temple the ark of His testament... Even though verse 19 describes the temple of G·d ... in heaven, the close proximity of these two verses should not be discounted. There could be an implication that the Ark of the Covenant will be 'seen' at the place where the bodies of the Two Witnesses lay in the street. The Greek word for street also means a broad place, an open square - and is the precursor to the English word 'plate'.

Just about the only broad open place in Jerusalem, a city of deep valleys and high ridges, is the Temple Mount, Mount Zion.
Jerusalem of Jesus

each countour line represents 10 metres or about 33 feet of rise/fall
This is a topographical view of Jerusalem at the time of Jesus; the Temple Mount is in the center right of the picture. It is easily seen that both to the right - the Kidron Valley - and the left - the Tyropoeon Valley - of the Temple Mount, the ground slopes steeply away; the gradient is less severe to the north and south.
