I read a fascinating article in Mother Jones about a rabbi known as the 'Jewish Indiana Jones.' His name is Harry Moskoff and he has studied biblical archaeology for years in search of the location of the Ark Of The Covenant. For those not familiar with this most significant item in Old Testament history, it is a chest that held the tablets containing the Ten Commandments, and the first scroll of the Torah written by Moses. Moskoff has a book and a movie on the subject.
According to the Bible, the Ark had amazing powers and was associated with numerous miracles, including the defeat of the city of Jericho. The size of the Ark is 52 x 31 x 31 (inches), and is plated in gold. Moskoff believes that the Ark is buried under the courtyard of Solomon's Temple. I found it very interesting to note that many scholars counter that the Ark may be actually hidden in modern day Iraq.
The Ark Of The Covenant, its mysterious power, and what other secrets it might contain, is the basis for great speculation and countless books. Of course, the movie that comes immediately to mind is Raiders Of The Lost Ark.
How Does Huckabee Play Into All Of This?
Huckabee discusses at length his solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in an interview he did for the book (of which he provided an endorsement as well). He also makes some astute remarks about how archaeology consistently affirms biblical history. Huckabee is right on that, it is amazing how archaeological finds time and again confirm the biblical account. I just don't know how Mike would look wearing one of those Indiana Jones hats on the campaign trail. He is also close friends with Chuck Norris, so as far as his circle of supporters, he may have the most interesting network of all of those seeking the nomination. Maybe the next search should be for the lost emails of Hillary Clinton...
