The wonderful story of the Wanderings of the Ark has fascinated Bible readers for generations. It is one of the most exciting events recorded by man and vividly described in the Bible. From Sinai to Jerusalem offers a wide-ranging and possible scenario of the Ark's journeys through original photographs, interpretive drawings based on Scripture, and reconstructions based on archaeological evidence together with contemporary finds.
A rich source of reference, this handy volume provides a fount of knowledge accumulated over time for the enjoyment of the reader. Scholars, teachers, and students may use it as a stepping stone for further reading and research.
"Various routes have been suggested for the Ark, whose journey spanned more than a thousand years, and all texts, as does this one, still carry question marks. For better understanding, we have provided a number of photographs of the various regions through which the Ark passed, from its construction by Bezaleel in the wilderness of Sinai to its final destination in the Holy of Holies of Solomon's Temple."
"Scholars and artists have long grappled with the intricacies of the biblical descriptions. Over the centuries many proposals have been made in both word and picture for the Tabernacle and its artifacts. The authors offer a wide-ranging and possible scenario with the region as a backdrop."
