What Was the Golden Calf?

Standard

For over 7,000 years there was a Bull Cult religion practiced throughout the ancient world. The Hebrews though had other ideas in mind and came up with monotheism, and brought to the world, the belief in worshipping one god. There was a point in Hebrew biblical history where the Hebrews made a golden calf fashioned after the Egyptian’s bull, which may have represented the Bull Cult, but Moses wasn’t too happy about the golden calf when he came down the mountain with the Ten Commandments. The rest is history.

What is the Ark of the Covenant?

Standard

One, it is a sacred wooden chest. Two, it was made by the tribes of Israel a long, long time ago, well before Christianity. Three, the Israelites made it because the Lord told Moses to tell them to make it. Four, it contained the law (the ten commandments). Five, it was kept in the first temple and was very holy. Six, it was so holy; it caused the River Jordan to divide when they approached with it (remember the Israelites were nomadic for a while so they carried it around). Seven, it symbolized the faith of the Jews. Eight, it was last seen in the Temple in Jerusalem. Nine, it is now a conspiracy theory and Steven Spielberg made a movie about it, Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark. Ten, the ancient Babylonians (approx where Iraq is now) burned the Temple down so the Ark must have burned up with the temple. But … eleven, some religious Jews believe that when the Messiah comes it will be restored.
