In 1978 Ron Wyatt an amateur archaeologist without any formal training, confounded those who disbelieve the historical accuracy of the Bible, by discovering the true location of the “Exodus Red Sea Crossing, in the Gulf of Aqaba at Nuweiba, Sinai Peninsala, and the real Mt. Sinai in Midian.

When Ron started to look for the Red Sea crossing sight, he hired an air plane to help him locate the sight where Moses brought the children of Israel across the Red Sea.  He asked the pilot, “Where is there a place where you can get through the Mountains to the Gulf of Aqaba?”  And the pilot flew them down to the Nuweiba area where there is a huge 5 mile long beach and he showed them where the children of Israel made their way through the mountains along a dried river bed to the Red Sea. The full name of the beach is called “Nuwayba’ al Muzayyinah” which translated means “Waters of Moses Opening.”

The following year, Ron and his two sons went scuba diving at that sight and they found a large column in the water there; and they immediately suspected that the column had marked the spot were the Israelite's had crossed the Red Sea, but some one had pushed it over and it was now lying flat in the water. So they went scuba diving strait out from there and they found the remains of chariot wheels in the water there on their first dive; and by confirming the Red Sea crossing sight Ron was then able to conclude without a doubt that the real Mount Sinai must be over in Saudi Arabia in Midian. A place called “Jabel el Lawz” Which translated means “The Mountain of the Laws.” This is exactly where the Apostle Paul says Mt. Sinai is in Galatians 4:25, “For this Agar is Mount Sinai in Arabia.”

 Josephus a first century Historian wrote. Mount Sinai is the highest of the mountains in the region of the City of Midian.” Mount Sinai towers 8,000 ft. above the desert floor; and the mountain is easy to spot because the whole top of the mountain where Moses received the Ten Commandments from God is burnt black.

“And Mount Sinai was altogether on a smoke, because the Lord descended upon it in fire; and the smoke there of ascended as the smoke of a furnace, and the whole mount quaked greatly.”

When Pharaoh heard that Moses had killed one of his soldiers who was beating a Hebrew slave, he sought to slay Moses. But Moses fled from the face of Pharaoh and dwelt in the land of Midian. It was 40 years later in Midian where the Angel of the Lord “Jesus Christ” appeared to Moses in a Burning Bush.

Now Moses kept the flock of Jethro his father in law, the priest of Midian; and he led the flock to the backside of the desert, and came to the mountain of God, even to Horeb.

“And the Angel of the Lord appeared to him in a flame of fire from the midst of a bush and he looked, and behold the bush burned with fire, and the bush was not consumed.”  

And he said, “I Am the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.” And Moses hid his face; for he was afraid to look upon God. And the Lord said, “I have surely seen the affliction of my people which are in Egypt, and have heard their cry by reason of their taskmasters; for I know their sorrows; and I Am come down to deliver them out of the hand of the Egyptians, and to bring them up out of the land unto a good land and a large, unto a land flowing with milk and honey.

God then told Moses that “When thou hast brought forth the people out of Egypt, ye shall serve God upon this mountain.” God told Moses to bring the people out of Egypt to Mount Sinai in Midian.

And Moses said to God, behold when I come unto the children of Israel, and shall say unto them, The God of your fathers has sent me to you; and they shall say to me, What is his name? What shall I say to them? And God said to Moses, “I AM THAT I AM; and he said, “Thus shall thou say to the children of Israel, I AM has sent me to you.”

The authenticity of Ron Wyatt’s claim of finding the Red Sea Crossing has been validated by a large red granite pillar with inscriptions on it which were erected by King Solomon on both the Sinai and Saudi Arabian sides of the Red Sea. The inscription reads, Pharaoh, Mizraim (Egypt) Moses, death, water, Yahweh, Solomon, Edom.

And by the discovery of the remains of ancient Egyptian army chariots scattered over a mile and a half lying at the bottom of an underwater land bridge connecting Sinai to Saudi Arabia suggesting that a large army must have perished on the site in a dramatic way, which corroborates the biblical account of how the Egyptian army was destroyed by the returning waters that Moses had parted.

Also the fact that these dried up river beds winding through the mountains had carried such large amounts of desert dust, mud, and sand washed down from the mountains by seasonal rainfall, that it had filled in the Golf of Aqaba creating a natural flat sand bar land bridge from one side of the Red Sea to the other, with the water dropping down to over 1500m. deep on either side of this bridge. Even with the waters parted it would have been nearly impossible for the Israelite's with their flocks and herds to climb down and then back up the other side of the Red Sea, had this land bridge not been there.

The depth of the water and the steep canyon walls would have made it impossible for a crossing to have taken place anywhere else with the exception of the shallow land bridge at Nuweiba. If the waters were to be removed, it would still be impossible to cross this chasm which is as deep and as wide as the Grand Canyon in Arizona.

There is no question in my mind that Rod Wyatt has found the exact location of the Red Sea Crossing. Nowhere else along the Red Sea does a land bridge like this exist; plus the fact that so many coral encrusted chariot wheels along with fossilized human and horse bones have been recovered, all these things prove to me that the story is true.

The Bible says that Pharaoh took 600 of his chosen chariots along with all the chariots of Egypt and pursued after the children of Israel

 “And Moses stretched out his hand over the sea; and the Lord caused the sea to go back by a strong east wind all that night, and made the sea dry land, and the waters were divided. And the children of Israel went into the midst of the sea upon the dry ground; and the waters were a wall unto them on their right hand, and on their left. And the Egyptians pursued, and went in after them to the midst of the sea, even all Pharaoh’s horses, his chariots, and his horsemen. And it came to pass, that in the morning watch the Lord looked unto the host of the Egyptians through the pillar of fire and of the cloud, and troubled the host of the Egyptians; And took off their chariot wheels, that they drove them heavily: so that the Egyptians said, Let us flee from the face of Israel; for the Lord fights for them against the Egyptians.

In 1988, Ron found a four spooked gold chariot wheel which looked almost perfect. The reason this wheel was so well preserved is that coral does not grow on gold. But the wood inside the gold "veneer" was deteriorated, which made it very fragile and for this reason Rod did not attempt to retrieve it from the water. He found it on the Egyptian side of the Gulf of Aqaba close to the shore of the Red Sea but it was so fragile that it would fall apart if he tried to remove it. 

Chariot wheels had been found on both sides of the Red Sea, but Pharaoh would have been ridding in the rear of his army, with the main force of his army in front of him for protection. This could be the actual wheel from Pharaoh’s chariot. This is a picture of Pharaoh’s chariot with 4 spoke wheels.

And the Lord said unto Moses, “Stretch out thin hand over the sea that the waters may come again upon the Egyptians, upon their chariots, and upon their horsemen. And Moses stretched forth his hand over the sea, and the sea returned to his strength when the morning appeared; and the Egyptians fled against it; and the Lord overthrew the Egyptians in the midst of the sea. And the waters returned, and covered the chariots and the horsemen, and all the host of Pharaoh that came into the sea after them; there remained not so much as one of them."

Ron Wyatt and his sons had returned to the Middle East to get some of the chariot wheels out of the bottom of the Red Sea. Ron and his sons were diving at a depth of about 30 ft. deep and he though that the water would filter out the sun's harmful rays; however this was not the case and as a result his legs and feet became so painfully sunburn that he could not get his diving equipment and fins on. Unable to dive anymore, and with no motel in the area, Ron and his sons had no choice but to return to Jerusalem to do some sight seeing for a few days while they wait until their flight from Tel Aviv left for the US.

And during this time Ron met than archeologist from the Israeli Antiquities Authority who was in charge of the Jerusalem area, and he told Ron that he had been doing some digging along the Scull Mountain cliff face, and he invited Ron to see the site saying;  “How about coming along with me, and have a look at it, and see what you think!”
So in August of 1978, Ron was walking along the Calvary Escarpment in the Garden Tomb in Jerusalem, with a man from the local Israeli Antiquities Authority talking about Roman antiquities, when suddenly without warning Ron's left hand pointed at a hole in the rock where there was pile of garbage and two dead cats, and his mouth said, “That’s Jeremiah’s Grotto and the Ark of the Covenant is in their!” 

Both of the men were totally confounded by the words that had just come uncontrollably out of Ron’s mouth. Even though Ron had said this, he really had no idea why the Ark of the Covenant would be in that place; and the man from the Israeli Antiquities Authority immediately reacted quite strangely also by saying; “That’s wonderful. We’ll let you excavate there, provide your permits, put you up in a place to stay, furnish your meals and wash your cloths!”

Ron knew that an unbelievable supernatural event had just taken place, but he was leery about such things because he knew that not all supernatural occurrences originate from God. (See Revelation 16:14) Ron’s return flight tickets were for the next morning so they flew home and he began to wonder in his mind why the Ark of the Covenant would be hidden in Skull Hill?

So he prayed and asked the Lord to help him understand why the Ark of the Covenant might possibly be in that place. Ron was impressed to read the history of the conquest of Jerusalem by Nebuchadnezzar the Babylonian King at the time. And in 2Kings 25:  It says that King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon came, he and all his host against Jerusalem, and pitched against it; and they built forts against it round about. King Nebuchadnezzar built wood forts with siege walls and watch towers around Jerusalem to make sure nothing got in or out of the City. And by the second year a famine prevailed in the city, and there was no bread for the people. 

Jeremiah describes the destruction of Jerusalem in the book of Lamentations as being worst than that of Sodom and Gomorrah which were destroyed by God in a moment. 

Lamentation 4:4to10 “The tongue of the sucking child cleaves to the roof of his mouth for thirst: the young children ask bread, and no man breaketh it unto them. They that did feed delicately are desolate in the streets; they that were brought up in scarlet embrace dunghills. For the punishment of the iniquity of the daughter of my people is greater than the punishment of the sin of Sodom, that was overthrown as in a moment, and no hands stayed on her. 

Her Nazarites were purer than snow, they were whiter than milk, they were more ruddy in body than rubies, their polishing was of sapphire. Their visage is blacker than a coal; they are not known in the streets; their skin cleaves to their bones; it is withered, it is become like a stick. 

They that be slain with the sword are better than they that be slain with hunger; for these pine away stricken through for want of the fruits of the field. The hands of the pitiful women have sodden (boiled) their own children; they were their meat in the destruction of the daughter of my people.   


 When King Nebuchadnezzar and the Babylonian army attacked
Jerusalem, they built wood forts and siege walls around the city, with watchtowers, not allowing anyone or anything in or out of the city. It would have been extremely difficult for the Jews to try to smuggle something as large as the Ark of the Covenant out of the city. The Ark of the Covenant which is covered in pure gold, along with all the Temple Treasures is something that the Babylonians would not have allowed to escape.

You can bet that one of the reasons the Babylonians attacked Jerusalem in the first place, is because they had heard of the magnificent treasures made of silver and gold in the House of David and in King Solomon's Temple. And they would have been anxious to capture such a priceless artifact and powerful weapon as the Ark of the Covenant. Surly the Babylonians had heard of the Ark’s assume power and its feared repetition for helping the Israelite army to defeat many nations that were much more powerful than they were. The Ark of the Covenant was defiantly something that the Babylonians would wanted to bring home as a war trophy, and a possible new weapon in their possession.

So it makes sense that the Prophet Jeremiah would have done everything he could to keep the enemy from getting their hands on the Ark, and must have hid or buried the Ark some where in the City or nearby within the Babylonian siege wall. As it was never found nor was it listed among the treasures taken by King Nebuchadnezzar back to Babylon, we must assume that Jeremiah successfully hid the Ark some where safe underground.

This leaves only two possibilities, either they smuggled the Ark passed the Babylonian soldiers siege walls, or it is still hidden some-where below the Temple Mount or near by. Since he had several items to hide, which include the tent, the Ark, all the furniture, the large seven candle light stand and so on, he would most likely try to find a place to hid them all together like the ancient Egyptians did in an underground tomb or cave. 

In 586 BC Jerusalem was totally destroyed by the Babylonians, who ransacked and burned the city, destroying Solomon’s Temple and Kind David's house, and carrying off the severing Jews to Babylon as his slaves (II Kings 25). 

In 2 Kings 24:13, 2Kings 25:13-18, and Jeremiah 52:17-23, and a very detailed account was given of all the items taken to Babylon from "King David's house" and the "house of the Lord;"- and it even mentions small items like "spoons", etc. But the Ark isn't mentioned. Neither is it mentioned in the lists of things brought back from Babylon in Ezra 1:7-11. Since we are told by Jeremiah the Prophet in Jeremiah 28:3 that everything taken to Babylon from the "house of the Lord" would be returned, and since the Ark wasn't among the returned items, this proves that the Ark was never taken to Babylon

After spending 70 years in Babylon as slaves, King Cyrus allowed the Jews to return home to Jerusalem to rebuild their Temple, and to take with them all the gold and silver and vessels that King Nebuchadnezzar had taken out of Jerusalem, and had put in the house of his gods. The amount of treasurer that they took back to Jerusalem with them is listed in the book of EZRA chapter 1:9to11 as thirty chargers of gold a thousand chargers of silver, twenty nine knives, thirty basons of gold, four hundred and ten silver basons, and a thousand other vessels. All the vessels of gold and of silver were five thousand four hundred, but the Ark of the Covenant which was covered in pure gold was not mentioned. If this had been taken to Babylon, King Nebuchadnezzar would have defiantly put the Ark in the house of his gods. It is a good thing that he didn't, because I am sure that the Ark as powerful as it is, would have completely destroyed all of the other statues of his gods!  


After studding the subject, Ron Wyatt came to the conclusion that the Ark most likely never left Jerusalem, and it has remained hidden as Jeremiah said it would be until the end times when God brings his people back again, and shows mercy to them. We know that the entire city was burned to the ground and none of the walls were left standing; and King David's house, Solomon's temple along with all the buildings in the city were completely destroyed by King Nebuchadnezzar's army in 586 BC. The only way that the Ark of the Covenant could have escaped destruction, or from being captured by the Babylonian soldiers, is if it were hid safely in a volt some where below ground. And the most logical place they would have chosen, would NOT be anywhere in the city, where they knew that all the gold hungry soldiers would be searching for it. The site that Ron Wyatt had supernaturally pointed to called "Jeremiah's Grotto," was in the right location outside the ancient city walls and within the siege wall.

Ron also checked to see if there was any other mention of the Ark of the Covenant found in non-Biblical records, especially Jewish. He found two other intriguing bits of information. In the Apocryphal book of 2 Maccabees, it says: 

2 Mac 2:2 The records show that it was Jeremiah who ... "prompted by a divine message, the prophet gave orders that the Tent of Meeting and the Ark should go with him. Then he went to the mountain from the top of which Moses saw God's Promised Land. When he reached the mountain, Jeremiah found a cave-dwelling; he carried the tent, the Ark, and the incense altar into it, then blocked up the entrance.

Some of his companions came to mark out the way, but were unable to find it. When Jeremiah learned of this he reprimanded them. The place shall remain unknown, he said, until God finally gathers His people together and shows mercy to them. Then the Lord will bring these things to light again, and the glory of the Lord will appear with the cloud, as it was seen both in the time of Moses, and when Solomon prayed that the shrine might be worthily consecrated."

The writer, in this letter to " Jewish kinsmen in Egypt, the Jews who are in Jerusalem, and those in the country of Judea," explains where he got this information:

"These same facts are set out in the official records and in the memoirs of Nehemiah. Just as Nehemiah collected the chronicles of the kings, the writings of prophets, the works of David, and royal letters about sacred offerings, to found his library, so Judas also has collected all the books that had been scattered as a result of our recent conflict. These are in our possession, and if you need any of them, send messenger for them. "

Also worthy of note: the quote in 2 Maccabees, above, could have been mis-translated over the years and originally have stated that the Ark was hidden NOT IN the mountain Moses was ON when he viewed the promised land (Mt. Nebo, Deu 32:49), but instead it could mean that the Ark was hidden IN the mountain that Moses SAW when he viewed the promised land. From Nebo he would have been able to see Jerusalem because of it's altitude.

In the Pseudepigraphal book called "The Paralipomena of Jeremiah" (meaning "the remaining words of Jeremiah") it is also written that Jeremiah, in obedience to God's command, hid the sacred objects from the temple just before the destruction of Jerusalem. Now, neither of these books can be totally trusted as being completely 100 % accurate- however it does say that: "the Ark of the Covenant and the sacred objects remained in the Temple until just before the destruction of Jerusalem;" this means that if it were impossible for the Jews to sneak the Ark past the Babylonians siege wall, it must still be hidden after some 2,630 years, some where in King Solomon's quarry tunnels below the Temple Mound. 

Also, Jeremiah said in JER 3:16 "And it shall come to pass, when ye be multiplied and increased in the land, in those days, says the LORD, they shall say no more, The ark of the covenant of the LORD: neither shall it come to mind: neither shall they remember it; neither shall they visit it; neither shall that be done any more.

After studding the subject Ron came to the conclusion that there was a good possibility that the Ark of the Covenant could still be hidden in a cave inside Skull Hill, known as Jeremiah's Grotto, but it was still a long shot. Yet, it was enough information for Ron to base his final decision on - and he decided to go ahead with the excavation.

To understand the significance of all these discoveries you must understand how the Ark of the Covenant, the Passover, and the Crucifixion of Jesus Christ relate to each-other and how they all fit together.

First of all you must understand that God is not the God of the Jews only, He is the God of the whole World! When God chose to save the Jews from slavery in Egypt he brought 10 terrible plagues upon Egypt and the last final plague God told the Jews to put the Lambs blood on their doors, everyone who obeyed God was speared form God's final Judgment and the Angel of Death. Those who did not obey received God's final Judgment.


John the Baptist said, "Repent and bring forth fruits worthy of repentance,  for the kingdom of heaven is at hand." Confessing their sins, many were baptized by him in the Jordan River. When Jesus came to be baptized, John said, Behold the Lamb of God who comes to take away the sins of the world!What did John mean by that?

When John the Baptist saw Jesus he said, “Behold, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!” (John 1:29) What did he mean by describing Jesus as the “Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world?” Obviously this statement must have a lot of hidden meaning. What does the sacrificed blood of Lamb of God have to do with the Ark of the Covenant? What does the things that happened to the Jews in the Old Testament have to do with the Christian New Testament? 

This brings to mind the story of the Exodus and the Passover Lamb. How that God had sent 9 terrible plagues upon Egypt, and each time God sent a plague Pharaoh would promise to let God’s people go free, but then at the last minute he would go back on his word and refuse to let them go.  In order to be saved from God’s last final Judgment on Egypt, the Hebrew families were told to kill a spotless innocent lamb and put its blood on the upper door header and the two door post of their houses as a sign of protection from the angel of death who would pass through Egypt killing every firstborn man and beast; of everyone who does not have the Lamb’s blood on their door. (Ex 12:3-14)


"For this was good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior. Who would have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth. For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus. Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time." 1 Tim 2:3-6

"Is he the God of the Jews only? Is he not also of the Gentiles? Yes of the Gentiles also; Seeing it is one God, which shall justify the circumcision by faith, and the uncircumcised through faith. Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law." "Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight; for by the law is the knowledge of sin. But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets; Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe; for there is no difference. For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God. Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus. Whom God has set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are "pasted over," through the forbearance of God." Rom 3:20to25  

"God demonstrates His own love for us, in that while we are yet sinners, Christ died for us. Having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him" (Romans 5:8-9).

"Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us; and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren. But whoso has this world's good, and sees his brother have need, and shuts up his bowels of compassion from him, how dwells the love of God in him?"
1 John 3:16-17  

"Be ye therefore followers (imitators) of God, as beloved children; And walk in love, just as Christ also has loved us, and has given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet-smelling savour." Eph. 5:1-2

For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren. Rom 8:29

Elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, through sanctification of the Spirit, unto obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ; Grace unto you, and peace, be multiplied.
1 Peter 1:2

"But Christ being come an high priest of good things to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle (tent), not made with hands, that is to say, not of this creation; Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us. For if the blood of bulls and of goats and the ashes of an heifer sprinkling the unclean, sanctifies to the purifying of the flesh; How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?" Heb 9:11to14

"For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek; for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved." Rom 10:12-13

"And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up. That whosoever believes in him should not perish, but have eternal life. For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in him should not perish, but have ever-lasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved." John 3:14to17

"And Moses made a serpent of brass, and put it upon a pole, and it came to pass, that if a serpent had bitten any man, when he beheld the serpent of brass, he lived." Numbers 21:9

"He that believes on him is not condemned; but he that believes not is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For every one that does evil hates the light, neither comes to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved." John 3:18to20

"But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanses us from all sin. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us." 1 John 1:7to10


The Ark of the Covenant has been missing for over 2,600 years. Some say it is in Ethiopia, some say it is in Egypt, some say it is in Mt. Nebo, some say it is in Heaven, some say it is under the Temple Mount in a cave. Who or what is right? 

One man Ron Wyatt an amateur Archaeologist claims that Jeremiah the Prophet hid the Ark of the Covenant in a cave called "Jeremiah's Grotto," which is inside Skull Hill. Calvary or Golgotha is just outside of the City walls near to the Damascus gate. This is the place where the Romans crucified Jesus and where several roads merge, and large numbers of people would have passed by. This was about 450 yards from the Temple Mount. 

The Roman historian Quintilian wrote "Whenever we crucify criminals, VERY CROWDED HIGHWAYS are chosen, so that many shall see it and may be moved by fear of it, because all punishment does not pertain so much to revenge as to EXAMPLE."

John 19:17-18 “And He bearing His cross, went out to a place called the Place of a skull, which is called in Hebrew, Golgotha: Where they crucified Him and two others with him, on either side one, and Jesus in the mist.” 

"And they that PASSED BY railed on him, wagging (shaking) their heads and saying, Ah, thou that destroyest the temple and buildest it in three days, Save thyself and come down from the cross. Likewise also the chief priests mocking said among themselves with the scribes, He saved others; himself he cannot save. Let Christ the King of Israel descend now from the cross, that we may see and believe. And they that were crucified with him reviled him ."(Mark 15:29to32)

"All they that see me laugh me to scorn; they shoot out the lip, they shake the head saying, He trusted on the Lord that he would deliver him: let him deliver him, seeing he delighted in him." (Psalm 22:7,8) 

Wherefore Jesus also, that he might sanctify the people with his own blood, suffered without the gate. Heb. 13:12



Skull Hill Cliff  Face

Ron and his two sons began by digging straight down, at the base of a cliff face. The first thing they uncovered were recesses cut into the cliff face, three 'bookshelf-like' cut outs. Ron's thought was that these could be the recesses that held the signs that the Romans put above the cross of Christ. 

In Matthew 27:37, Mark 15:26 and Luke 23:38 the Bible says that the superscription was written in three languages "above" Jesus; in Greek, Latin, and Hebrew.  A sign written in three languages and nailed on top of the cross would have been too small to read. If the signs were too small to read by passers by, the Jews would not have gone to Pilot and complained about what they said. It makes more sense that signs were place "above the cross which is the proper translation, in the three bookshelf niches, which fits with what Ron Wyatt found. 

In the book of John, the Bible says that, "a title," was put on (above) the cross." The Greek word "EPI" means "above." Jesus told Nicodemus in John chapter 3 "Truly, truly, I say to thee "Except a man be born again (from above) he cannot see the kingdom of God." The translators in Matthew, Mark and Luke decided to translate EPI as "over," because it would not have made sense to say that a sign was put (EPI) on his head, but in John they mistranslated EPI to mean "on" because they thought it made more sense to say that they put a sign on the cross. However, they should have translated EPI to say, "a title was put above the cross."

John 19:19to21 And Pilate wrote a title, and put it upon (above) the cross. And the writing was, JESUS OF NAZARETH THE KING OF THE JEWS.” This title then read many of the Jews: for the place where Jesus was crucified was nigh to the city; and it was written in Hebrew, and Greek, and Latin. Then said the chief priest of the Jews to Pilate, Write not, The King of the Jews; but that he said, I am King of the Jews. Pilate answered, “What I have written I have written.

It was here that the Ark of the Covenant was found in King Solomon's quarry below the Temple Mount, which is full of caves leading off in all directions, one of which is directly below where Jesus’ cross had stood on Golgotha, which interpreted means the "Place of a Skull." God did this purposely so that everyone in the world might know and understand the link between the Jewish Old Testament and the Christian New Testament.

Ron found a crack in the rock caused by an earthquake in the ceiling of the cave just above the Ark of the Covenant, that went strait up to the cross-hole where Jesus’ cross had stood; and the gold mercy seat between the two cherubim was sprinkled with Christ's (the Messiah's) blood. Jesus the Son of God, the innocent Lamb that God the Father knew would have to be slain to pay for the sins of many, before He even laid the foundations of the Earth.

There was an earthquake when Jesus died, which fractured the mountain and opened a fissure that runs down the cliff face of Skull Hill, that you can still see today. This crack in the cliff face goes through the right side of the of the cross-hole and down through 20 foot of solid rock, and cracked the stone lid pushing it aside, on top of the black stone volt where the Ark of the Covenant lie hidden below.

A Roman soldier thrust a lance into Jesus' heart between the fifth and sixth rib to make sure that Jesus was dead. Blood and water came gushing out of his side, running down over his feet into the cross-hole. The blood traveled down through the crack in the rock dripping onto the Mercy Seat of the Ark of the Covenant.

620 years earlier, the Ark of the Covenant had been hidden by God and the prophet Jeremiah just before Salomon's temple and the City of Jerusalem was about to be destroyed by the Babylonians. There are dark blood stains on the ceiling of the cave on both sides of the crack, and on both sides of cracked stone volt cover, and on the gold Mercy Seat of the Ark. The crack in the ceiling of the cave above the Ark, went directly up to the crack in the cross hole, which was determined by passing up a metal tape measure through the crack.


When Moses had spoken every precept to all the people according to the law, he took the blood of calves and of goats, with water, and scarlet wool, and hyssop, and sprinkled both the book, and all the people.” Hebrews 9:19 

9:19 says that Moses sprinkled blood and water on The Book of the Law and all the people, in order to confirm the Old covenant (Testament) at Mt. Sinai. This was a "Type," a Prophecy of what Jesus Christ would do when he established the New covenant (Testament). So, just as Moses sprinkled animal blood and water on The Book of the Law and all the people in the Type, Christ had to sprinkle His blood and water on God's Word the Ten Commandments written on stone tables inside the Ark of the Covenant and on all of his people.

The Bible states that without the shedding of blood there is no remission of sins. Just as the blood of innocent animals was symbolic of the actual blood sacrifice that Jesus Christ would make for us on the cross. "Behold! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world" (John 1:29). Jesus the Messiah fulfilled the Old Testament requirement for atonement. "And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaks better things than that of Abel."(Heb 12:24)

 "For this is my blood of the New Testament ("Covenant"), which is shed for many for the remission of sins." Matthew 26:28

"And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission." Hebrews 9:22 

 Just as the lamb's blood sprinkled on the doors of the Jews, saved them from God's wrath when the Angel of Death Passed Over Egypt. It says in 1 Cor.5:7: "Christ our Passover is slain for us." The lambs blood sprinkled on the Mercy Seat of the Ark of the Covenant would save all those who believe in Jesus Christ and ask Him to come into their hearts. "Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me." "Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water." (Heb 10:23)

When God's people were dying of thirst in the desert, God told Moses to strike the Rock. Jesus the Messiah is the Rock. He was smitten of God and afflicted for us; and the water came gushing out of the cleft of the rock symbolizing the water and the blood that would come gushing out of the pierced side of Jesus Christ. Jesus said to the people; "Truly truly, I say to you, Moses gave you not the bread out of heaven; but my Father gave you the true bread from heaven. For the bread of God is he which climbed down out of Heaven, and gives life to the world. Then said they unto him, Lord give us this bread all the time. But Jesus said to them, I am the bread of life; he that comes to me shall never hunger; and he that believes into me shall never thirst." (John 6:32-35) 

"Whosoever drinks of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into ever-lasting life." (John 4:14) If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink. He that believes on me, as the scripture has said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water. (But this spoke he of the Spirit, which they that believed on him should receive.) John 7:37to39


"Moreover, brethren, I would not that ye should be ignorant, how that all our fathers were under the cloud, and all passed through the sea; And were all baptized into Moses, in the cloud and in the sea; And did all eat the same spiritual meat; And did all drink the same spiritual drink; for they drank out of that spiritual Rock that followed them; and that Rock was Christ." 1 Cor 10:1to4

Believe it or not, the Jews were the first Christians (followers of Jesus Christ), and the first to be baptized. It was Jesus Christ the Angel of the LORD, the great "I AM," The "ALMIGHTY" that spoke to Moses from the burning bush. Jesus God's Son, is equal to his Father ALMIGHTY God, and He created the heavens and earth and everything in the universe. "He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. He came unto his own, and his own received him not. God the Father allowed His Son to create all things so "that all men should honor the Son, even as they honor the Father. He that honors not the Son honors not the Father which has sent him." “He who has seen Me has seen the Father.” (John 14:9) I and My Father are one.” 

Then the Jews took up stones again to stone him. Jesus answered them, Many good works have I showed you from my Father; for which of those works do you stone me? The Jews answered him, saying, For a good work we stone thee not; but for blasphemy; and because thou, being a man, makest thy self God.

Moses said unto God, behold when I come unto the children of Israel, and shall say unto them, The God of your fathers has sent me unto you; and they shall say unto me, What is his name? What shall I say unto them?

And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM has sent me unto you. And God said moreover unto Moses, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, The LORD God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, has sent me unto you: THIS IS MY NAME FOREVER, and this is my memorial unto all generations. (Exodus 3:13to15)

John 18: 3-12

Judas then, having received a band of men and officers from the chief priests and Pharisees, came hither with lanterns and torches and weapons. Jesus therefore, knowing all things that should come upon him, went forth, and said to them, Whom seek ye? They answered him, Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus said to them, I AM. And Judas also, which betrayed him, stood with them. As soon then as he had said unto them, I AM, they went backward and fell to the ground. 

Jesus wanted us to know that he could have destroyed Judas and his band of officers, chief priest and Pharisees with one powerful Word from his mouth; but instead of doing that, he willing chose to die a horrible death to save us.

"Jesus said unto them, 'Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I AM."
When Jesus said He is I AM, he was declaring Himself to be the God of Heaven and everyone who heard Him knew it.

Then said the Jews to him, Now we know that thou has a devil. Abraham is dead, and the prophets; and thou sayest If a man keep my Word he shall never taste of death. Art thou greater than our father Abraham, which is dead? and the prophets are dead: whom makest thou thyself?

Your father Abraham rejoiced to see my day: and he saw it, and was glad. Then said the Jews unto him, Thou are not yet fifty years old, and hast thou seen Abraham? Jesus said unto them, Truly, truly, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I AM. (John 8:51to53, 56to59)

Hearken unto me, O Jacob and Israel, my called; I AM He; I AM the first, I AM also the last. Mine hand also has laid the foundation of the earth, and my right hand has spanned the heavens; When I call unto them, they stand up together. Come ye near unto me, hear ye this; I have not spoken in secret from the beginning; from the time it was, there AM I; and now the Lord God, and his Spirit has sent me. (Isaiah 48:12to13+16)

I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I AM He, ye shall die in your sins. (John 8:24)

It was Jesus, the blood of the Lamb that the Hebrews placed in a bowl on their front step, and then dipped the brush of hissip into the bowl, sprinkling the lambs blood on the top of the door post and the two sides. Making the sign of the cross with the movement of their hand as they did so.

"And the blood shall be to you for a sign upon the houses where ye are: and when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and the plague shall not be upon you to destroy you, when I smite the land of Egypt." Ex 12:13

"For the Lord will pass through to smite the Egyptians; and when he sees the blood upon the lintel, and on the two side posts, the Lord will pass over the door, and will not suffer the destroyer to come in unto your houses to smite you." Ex 12:23

It was Jesus the lambs blood on the door post that saved the Jews from God's wrath, when the angel of death passed over Egypt. Jesus was the cloud that shadowed them as they walked through the hot desert sun. And the pillar of fire that keep them worm during the cold desert nights. Jesus was the bread, the manna that fell from heaven. Jesus was the water that came gushing out of the side of the rock. The Jews were the first followers of God "Jesus Christ." The Jews were the first to be baptized into Moses, under the cloud, and all passed through the sea; being baptized (immersed) in the cloud and in the sea. The first Christians, as described in the first chapters of the Acts of the Apostles, were all Jewish, either by birth, or by conversion.

"Knowing that not by corruptible things as by silver or by gold, ye were redeemed from your vain manner of life handed down from your fathers. But by the precious blood as of a lamb, without blemish and without spot the blood of Christ. Having been foreknown indeed before the foundation of the world, but manifested at the last times for your sake." 1 Peter 1:18to25 Who by him do believe in God, who raised him up out of the dead, and gave glory to him, so that your faith and hope would be in God. That your souls having purified by obedience to the truth by the Spirit into brotherly love unfeigned, out of a pure heart love ye one another fervently. Having been "begotten (born) again" not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the Word of the living God and abiding forever. Because all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withers and the flower thereof falls away; but the word of the Lord remains forever. But this is the word, which was announced to you.

Then Ron uncovered even more evidence that convinced him that this was the site where Jesus was crucified. When Ron finally hit the solid rock of what he though was the bottom of the quarry floor he spotted a square shaped rock cut into the bed rock; and when he lifted it up to examine it more closely; he discovered that it was covering a square hole chiseled down into the bedrock.
About 14-feet directly below the three cut-out niches in the cliff face they found a platform-like shelf of bedrock which extended out about eight feet from the cliff face, and in the middle they found a square hole chiseled down 23” into the solid bedrock, covered with a 4” thick square stone lid with two hand holes on the sides so you could pull it out.
Ron cleared away the dirt around hole and noticed a large crack running down the cliff face going through the right side of the hole. There were no more holes in the platform-like shelf, so Ron began digging into the packed dirt in front of the platform looking for more holes and he discovered that quarry floor drop down another 4 foot deeper before he came to the lower level of bedrock, where he and his sons found three more square 12-13 inch holes chiseled into the rock in front of the higher platform. 
Ron firmly believed that these holes once held crosses; and the one that was elevated above the others (on a platform of solid bedrock), he believed held the cross upon which Jesus was crucified. 

 Four cross-holes cut almost 2 feet into the solid rock, one higher up than the rest on a platform and set back. The other three were in a strait line lower down in front. The upper cross-hole would have most likely held the 'worst, or the most notorious' criminal, and we know from the Biblical account that the two cross-holes on either side held the two thieves that were crucified with Jesus


There was a crack running down the cliff face and across the right side of the cross-hole which appears to have been caused by an earthquake, as it displays no evidence of having been chiseled into the rock.

As Ron removed debris from the cross-hole, he finally reached the bottom and measured it. It extended 23-inches into the solid bedrock, while the crack appeared to extend much deeper. At this point, he didn't clear it out nor did he measure it. It would be a year later before he would learn that the crack extended about 20-feet down into the bedrock.

The crucifixion site was next to a road that went past the base of the cliff face. Each of the of cross-holes had a 4" thick square stone cover to prevent someone from falling in the holes, with notches in the sides, so you could reach your hands down into hole and pull the stone lid out. In one of the cross-holes Ron's son found a Roman coin with Emperor Tiberius face on it, he was Emperor from 14 to 37 AD. during the time that Jesus was living.

As they continued to clear the area they discovered the foundation walls of an early Christian church building 22'x40' that had been built around the crucifixion sight. This building was build adjacent to the cliff-face and a portion of the back wall of the church was built into and up against the actual face of the cliff. The foundations of the building were still in place. As they were digging to uncover the front foundation wall of the church they discovered a large thick rounded table-top. 

Using ground-penetrating radar Ron found a large round stone to be thirteen feet 2” in diameter and nearly16" to 18"ins. thick, in front of the crucifixion site. Ron tried to completely uncover it, but it was buried underneath about twenty feet of earth and he was afraid that as he tunneled towards it, the dirt above him might cave in on top of him. 

Ron considered that it may possibility be the large stone from the Garden Tomb, which is about a 100 yards away. Ron went to the garden tomb to see if the stone would fit. He measured the width of the channel that held the round tombstone, and what the diameter would have been. Amazingly, the channel was designed to hold a stone approximately 18"ins.thick! And the outline of the diameter of the size of the stone that had been rolled in front of the tomb sealing it, was also the same size as the stone that they found at the crucifixion site- thirteen feet, 2”ins. The Bible says that, " a great stone" was rolled in front of Jesus' tomb.





 In 1867 a man bought some land along the scull-faced hill. He wanted to dig a large cistern storm drain to collect rainwater, so he could cultivate a garden in this area. As he excavated down along the cliff face, he reach the floor of the old quarry bedrock, a level that dated back to the time of Jesus. And here he unearthed an old tomb very close to the skull hill crucifixion site.

Now in the place where He was crucified there was a garden, and in the garden a new sepulcher in which no one had yet been laid. There laid they Jesus therefore because of the Jews’ preparation day; for the sepulcher was nigh at hand.” John 19:41-42

And he laid Him in a tomb which had been hewn out of the rock, and rolled a stone against the door of the tomb.Mark 15:46

In front of this tomb is a trough for a large stone to roll in front of the tomb entrance. At the right hand side of the trough is a block of stone, which would stop the stone and prevent it from rolling any feather to the right. And there was a cut in the side of the cliff face to match the shape and diameter of the stone. The Bible describes a tomb hewn out of rock, in a garden nearby, and that it was the tomb made for a rich man named Joseph of Arimathaea, who besought Pilate that he might take Jesus’ body down from the cross and place him in the tomb. (Matt. 27:57-60).




By now, all the cliff-face had been excavated and there was no where else to look; Ron and his sons had dug down almost 18 feet to the quarry floor which took them almost two years, and there was no entrance to Jeremiah's Grotto found. They had begun in January of 1979 and it was now late 1980.

They had dug out and explored the entire underground cliff-face of Skull Hill, looking for an entrance into the Prophet Jeremiah’s cave or tunnel. Ron believed that if the Ark of the Covenant, the tent, and the Temple furnishing and sacred artifacts were some where inside the mountain as his hand had pointed too, and his mouth had said, they most have been hidden in a cave, and the cave sealed up to hid the entrance. 

As they continued to search, Ron’s son asks his father if he had prayed about what they should do next, and he said yes I have! The Lord was leading him to just break through the rock into the cliff-face; and his son said, “Well Dad, let’s do it!” Rod said that would be really hard work and he didn’t want to do that, because that would be like beating your head against a stone, and that would be crazy. Danny replied, “Well Dad I’ve seen you do crazier things than that before,” so Ron said to his son, well OK lets do it!

As they were digging down along the cliff face they had noticed that there was a fault line running down through the stone and there were bees going in and out of the rock. So Ron chiseled out a large chunk of stone and they could see a small hole and they shined a flashlight into the hole and they could see a large cave inside. They quickly made the hole big enough to crawl into the chamber, and to their relief, it really didn't take them very long before they had broken through the rock into a cave, which was about 15 ft.wide and 15 ft. high and had a system of tunnels leading off in different directions.

At first Ron though that the Ark of the Covenant would be setting right there in the cave but it was not. Ron and his sons started investigating all the different tunnels along with one of the local Arab men who was short and small, and could crawl in through many of the gaps and passage ways that were too small for Ron and his sons to easily fit through first to see if they would lead to any large rooms, or if they were just a dead end. 

It turned out that the mountain was full of a honey-comb of natural caves and tunnels, and there were places with deep holes that drop down to 25 to 40 ft. deep. And many hours were spent chiselling with a hammer drill and removing the dirt and rock making narrow passage ways bigger, and chiselling through cave walls searching for adjacent tunnels. And after 12 months of hard work off and on searching for the Ark with seemingly no results, everyone was at the point of giving up. Both of Ron's son had gotten pneumonia and had to return home.

The conditions in the caves were damp, with a lot of dust and dirt with little oxygen, which was not good for your health. Some holes were so tight you had to exhale to squeeze yourself through and when you would try to take another breath you could only half inhale again. 

One day Ron asked the young Arab man to crawl in through a tiny entrance to a cave, as usual. When he had done so, he rushed out with terror in his eyes, screaming, "What's in there! What's in there!" The man hurriedly exited the cave system and refused to ever return again.

Excitedly, Ron made the entrance to this chamber bigger so he could crawl in. He found himself crawling across a room full of rocks that were piled up to within 18” of the ceiling of the cave. Ron shined his flashlight down between the stones and he could see gold shinning back up at him. Ron began to move the rocks aside, in order to reveal what was underneath. He uncovered some dry rotted wooden boards which when he moved aside revealed animal skins. Something shiny was under the animal skins. Moving them aside, he uncovered the Table of Shewbread, from the first temple.

Continuing to shift aside more rocks and wood, he noticed a large volt in the corner of the room. The lid was cracked and had been moved aside. It had a flat stone top which was cracked completely in two and the smaller section was moved aside, creating an opening into the stone case. But the top of the stone volt was too near the ceiling for him to look inside. Yet he knew what was inside- the crack in the ceiling was directly above the cracked part of the lid, where it was open, and the black substance had fallen from the crack into the case because some of it had splashed onto the lid.

 photo 25c3f78c-e4e8-4cc6-a4ab-ac52634f05e1_zpsss92jq5u.jpg

It was at this time, as Ron recalls, as the instant realization of what had happened here dawned on him, that he passed out. When he realized that the crack in the ceiling of the cave was the end of the earth quake crack he had found running down the mountain and through the elevated cross-hole many feet above him, and the black substance was blood which had fallen through the crack and into the stone case, he KNEW the Ark was in the stone case. But the most overwhelming realization was that Christ's Blood had actually fallen onto the Mercy Seat of the Ark of the Covenant. 

Overwhelmed with emotion and suffering from pneumonia and lack of oxygen, Ron passed out in the chamber. When he came to, it was 2:45 pm. A mere 45 minutes had passed since he entered the chamber, yet in that short time, he became the first witness to the literal fulfillment of the "type" represented by all the sacrifices made by God's people since Adam and Eve, and later specifically directed by God Himself, in the laws of Moses.

It was January 6th 1982, when Ron made this amazing discovery. He tried to photograph the Ark of the Covenant with a Polaroid camera, but the photos turned out foggy, they tried a 35 mm and a video camera and the photos turned out foggy. He returned with a colonascope, but again the photos turned out foggy.

During his several visits to the chamber, Ron Wyatt tried to explore the contents. He measured the chamber and found it to be 22-feet long by 12-feet on two sides, while the other two sides followed the line of the cliff-face, forming a chamber that narrowed down in one corner.

The objects Ron Wyatt saw in this chamber that he felt confident enough to identify were: 

A stone volt containing the Ark of the Covenant, the Table of Shew-bread, the golden Altar of Incense. The Golden Censer, the 7-branched Lamp stand (with golden oil lamps bowls built into the tips of the branches). An ephod, a miter with an ivory pomegranate on the tip, a brass shekel weight, 7 oil lamps, and brass ring most likely used for hanging a curtain or something similar. And a very large sword, 5' 2" long which was most likely the sword that King Solomon’s Father, King David had used to cut off the head of Goliath.

This is a picture of Ron and his wife holding Goliath's sword. David hit Goliath with a stone from his sling shot, causing him to fall face first to the ground. David then ran up to Goliath and took his sword and cut off his head with his own sword. All of these objects were covered by the dry-rotted dark-colored animal skins, then dry-rotten wooden timbers on top of the skins and finally the large rocks piled over everything.

Ron found the original entrance door to the chamber and when he broke through to the other side he discovered a very large tunnel which extended in both directions. But he discovered that it was completely blocked with large stones in both directions. The problem now was to find the original tunnel they used to bring the items into the chamber, because the large stones were too big to get out through the narrow passage way Ron used to get into the chamber.

In the winter of 1854 near the Damascus Gate, Dr. Barclay rediscovered "Zedekiah's Cave," a vast cavern under the city, extending 750 feet into “Mt. Moriah. Beginning at the trench or dry moat separating the northern and southern portion of Mt. Moriah, it is 325 feet wide at the maximum point and average height is almost 50 feet high. It had been an underground stone quarry at one time. There are those who believe that King David and King Solomon used the stone to build the city and the first temple. At first it was believed that there was no entrance from the underground quarry up into the city, but Ron discovered that one of the pillars of solid rock left in place to support the ceiling, to prevent the cavern from collapsing, wasn't a stone pillar at all. It was a giant mound of earth and debris, piled up, he believed, to the ceiling and through the hole in the ceiling to ground level. On the surface it would look like normal ground, but it was actually a hidden entrance way in the city down into the quarry below.

Ron began to wonder if there were any tunnels leading from the underground quarry to Golgotha? If so, perhaps the Ark of the Covenant and other items had been lowered through a hole in the floor of the temple mount into the cavern, and then through a tunnel to its present location under the crucifixion sight. So he began to look for tunnels that lead in that direction. And sure enough, he found one. Almost completely hidden from view by boulders and overhanging rock, there was an opening into the cave wall that was sealed with several large cut rocks and it was heading in the right direction. But it was a long ways from the site where Ron had found the Ark. If this was the main tunnel that Jeremiah used to carry the Ark of the Covenant to the chamber under Golgotha, Ron would have a big job ahead of him clearing out such a long tunnel. Across the street from the entrance to "Zedekiah's Cave," is a bus station and behind the bus station is Skull Hill.

 Ron used sub-surface interface radar in later years to check for the existence of a tunnel running from the underground quarry to the area of the Calvary escarpment. He did find a tunnel-like void crossing under the street in the correct direction that was, as best he could determine, about 20 feet under the road. But it was still quite a distance to the Crucifixion site.

He also used the radar on the blocked up entrance in the underground quarry and found that there was a void behind the blocks. So he opened up the entrance and there was a tunnel, but several feet inside the passageway was blocked with big rocks and dirt. To Ron, it looked as if whoever had blocked it had tried to camouflage the fact that it was a plugged tunnel and had made the sealed entrance look like natural earth and rocks.

Now the decision Ron had to make was whether to attempt to clear out an extremely long tunnel or to keep working at the original site and try to find the main tunnel from that end.


There is secret that very few people know about. Under the Muslim Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem, which was built on the site where Solomon's Temple once stood, there is a hole in the floor, which leads down into a secret chamber called the Well of Souls, with a underground network of at least 45 chambers, tunnels, and caves leading off in all directions. This is a known fact that can be verified by a 19th-century British survey that was done by explorers Charles Wilson and Sir Charles Warren. And one of these caves beneath the bedrock leads to one of the most important archeological finds in world History, which is extremely significant to three of the world’s major religions, the Jews, Arabs and Christians. The answer to one of the world's most baffling mysteries lies hidden under the site where the Babylonian Army destroyed Solomon’s Temple in 586 B.C. The fabled and elusive Ark of the Covenant, which contained the original Ten Commandments, tablets of stone written by the finger of God and given to Moses at Mount Sinai as the ancient Israelite s wandered in the desert.

Very few people know about this hole in the floor that leads down into the Well of Souls, but if you go to the Muslim Dome of the Rock shrine and knock on the floor, you can hear the resounding hollow echoes coming from the chamber below. The Well of Souls is purportedly located below a natural cave under the rock upon which Jewish tradition says Abraham prepared to sacrifice his son Isaac. Islamic tradition indicates Muhammad ascended to heaven from this same rock. Today no one is allowed to access these subterranean chambers under the Temple Mount, for fear that someone might fill them with explosives and destroy the Muslim Temple. The Temple Mount and the natural cave below the Dome of the Rock are periodically open to tourists, depending upon the local security and political situation.




There are many Christians and Jews who believe that the Temple will be rebuilt and that the Ark of the Covenant will be returned to its original place. But Jesus told the Jews that the temple would be destroyed. "Do you see all these great buildings?" replied Jesus. "Not one stone here will be left on another; every one will be thrown down." When the chief high priests and all the council sought to find witnesses to testify against Jesus so that they could put him to death, many bare false witness but their testimonies did not agree with one another. Some of the witnesses said "We heard him say, I will destroy this temple that is made with hands, and within three days I will build another made without hands."

Jesus our Messiah promises within three days, (with God a thousand years is but one day), He will build a new Temple greater than the Old, without the use of man's hands. The most High God will no longer dwell in temples made by the hands of men, but he will live in the hearts of His people. For we are the temple of the living God. Do you not know that the Spirit of God dwells in You; and that you present your bodies a living sacrifice. What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price; be not ye the servants of men, therefore glorify God in your body, and your spirit, which are God's. The Scripture is clear that we are the temple of God. "I will live with them and walk among them, and I will be there God, and they will be my people." But King Solomon said,"But will God indeed dwell on the earth? Behold, the heaven and heaven of heavens cannot contain thee; how much less this house that I have built."

The Jews want to rebuild Solomon's temple so they can start offering animal sacrifices to God again. But why would they want to do this? Because the Orthodox Jewish community understands that without the shedding of blood there is no remission of sin (Leviticus 17:11; Hebrews 9:22). And since they do not believe Jesus is the Messiah who died for their sins, they realize they must make sacrifices for the forgiveness of their sins. 

 But King Davit says in Psalms 51:16  "For thou desires not sacrifice; else would I give it. Thou delightest not in burnt offering. The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit, a broken and a contrite heart O God thou wilt not despise."

Isaiah 1:9to18  "Except the LORD of hosts had left unto us a very small remnant, we should have been as Sodom, and we should have been like unto Gomorrah. Hear the word of the LORD, ye rulers of Sodom; give ear unto the law of our God, ye people of Gomorrah. To what purpose is the multitude of your sacrifices unto me? Saith the LORD. I am full of the burnt offerings of rams and the fat of fed beasts; and I delight not in the blood of bullocks, or of lambs, or of he goats. When ye come to appear before me, who has required this at your hand, to tread my courts? Bring no more vain oblations; incense is an abomination unto me; the new moons and Sabbaths, the calling of assemblies, I cannot away with; it is iniquity, even the solemn meeting. Your new moons and your appointed feast my soul hates: they are a trouble unto me; I am weary to bear them. And when ye spread forth your hands, I will hide mine eyes from you; yea, when ye make many prayers, I will not hear; your hands are full of blood.

Wash you, make you clean; put away the evil of your doings from before mine eyes; cease to do evil; Learn to do well; seek judgment, relieve the oppressed, judge the fatherless, plead for the widow. Come now, and let us reason together, saids the LORD; though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool."

The Ark of the Covenant has been found - and now it has been revealed to the world what it means to have the blood of Jesus Christ sprinkled on the mercy seat; the most important information in the world has been uncovered.

The discovery of the Ark of the Covenant and the significance of the place were it was found in Jerusalem in King Salmons minds 20 foot directly below where Jesus was crucified  THIS IS THE WORLDS GREATEST ARCHEOLOGICAL DISCOVERY! GOD AS HE PROMISED HAS BUILT A NEW TEMPLE, A NEW HOLY OF HOLIES, WITHOUT THE HANDS OF MEN 

"We heard him say, I will destroy this temple that is made with hands, and within three days I will build another made without hands." (Mark 14:58)

"The God who made the world and all that is in it, being Lord of both Heaven and earth, does not live in temples made by human hands, nor is He ministered to by human hands, as though He had need of anything - seeing that He is the One who gives to all men life and breath and everything else." (Acts 17:24,25)

Isaiah 53:1to12, Who has believed our report? And to whom is the arm of the Lord revealed? For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground; he has no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him. He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief; and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not.

Surely he has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. But he was wounded for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.

All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the Lord has laid on him the iniquity of us all. He was oppressed and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he opens not his mouth. He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his generation? For he was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was he stricken. And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death; because he had done no violence, neither was any deceit in his mouth.

Yet it pleased the Lord to bruise him; he has put him to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the Lord shall prosper in his hand. He shall see of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied: by his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many; for he shall bear their iniquities. Therefore will I divide him a portion with the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong; because he has poured out his soul unto death: and he was numbered with the transgressors; and he bare the sins of many, and made intercession for the transgressors."

Isaiah 52:14-15 As many were astonied at thee; his visage was so marred more than any man, and his form more that the sons of man: So shall he sprinkle many nations; the kings shall shut their mouths at him: for that which had not been told them shall they see; and that which they had not heard shall they consider.

Psalms 22:6-8+16-18 But I am a worm, and no man; a reproach of men, and despised of the people. All they that see me laugh me to scorn: they shoot out the lip, they shake the head, saying, He trusted on the Lord that he would deliver him: let him deliver him, seeing he delighted in him... I am poured out like water, and all my bones are out of joint; my heart is like wax; it is melted in the midst of my bowels. My strength is dried up like a potsherd; and my tongue cleaves to my jaws; and thou hast brought me into the dust of death. For dogs have compassed me: the assembly of the wicked have enclosed me; they pierced my hands and my feet. I may tell all my bones; they look and stare upon me. They part my garments among them, and cast lots upon my vesture.

Matt 27:39-44 And they that passed by reviled him, wagging their heads, and saying, “Thou that destroyest the temple, and buildest it in three days, save thyself. If thou be the Son of God, come down from the cross. Likewise also the chief priests mocking him, with the scribes and elders, said, “He saved others; himself he cannot save. If he be the King of Israel, let him now come down from the cross, and we will believe him.” He trusted in God; let him deliver him now, if he will have him: for he said, I am the Son of God. The thieves also, which were crucified with him, cast the same in his teeth.

Now from the sixth hour there was darkness over all the land unto the ninth hour. And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? My God, my God, why has thou forsaken me? Some of them that stood there, when they heard that said, “This man calls for Elias. And straightway one of them ran, and took a sponge, and filled it with vinegar, and put it on a reed, and gave him to drink. The rest said, Let be, let us see whether Elias will come to save him.

Jesus, when he had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up the ghost. And behold the vail of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom. And the earth did quake, and the rocks rent; And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose, And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many. Now when the centurion, and they that were with him, watching Jesus, saw the earthquake, and those things that were done, they feared greatly, saying, “Truly this was the Son of God.” 


The Jews therefore, because it was the preparation (for the Passover), that the bodies should not remain upon the cross on the Sabbath day, (for that Sabbath day was an high day,) besought Pilate that their legs might be broken, and that they might be taken away. Then came the soldiers, and brake the legs of the first, and of the other, which was crucified with him. But when they came to Jesus, and saw that he was dead already they brake not his legs: But one of the soldiers with a spear pierced his side, and forthwith came there out blood and water. And he that saw it bare record, and his record is true; and he knows what he said is true, that ye might believe. For these things were done, that the scripture should be fulfilled, A bone of him shall not be broken. And again another scripture says, “They shall look on him whom they pierced.”

Hebrews 13:12 Wherefore Jesus also, that he might sanctify the people with his own blood, suffered without the gate.

The blood and water of Jesus Christ, which bares record of His sacrifice for sins and the promise of eternal life, poured out of the side of Christ, and down through the earthquake crack that ran down through 20 foot of solid bed rocks below the surface, and dripped onto the Ark of the Covenant, on the west side. 

For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one. And there are three that bear witness in earth, the spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one.” (1Jn 5:7)



We were Redeemed, "With the Precious Blood of Christ, our Passover Lamb; as of a lamb without blemish and without spot. Which means that Jesus lived a Perfect life without sin, and He gave Himself a Sacrifice for our sins, by shedding His own Blood upon the Cross; which ran down pass His feet into the cross hole, and down on to the Mercy Seat of the Ark of the Covenant.

Ron Wyatt removed a sample of Christ's blood from the Mercy Seat of the Ark in the cave and paid a lab in Israel to do an analysis of the blood. They put the dark dried-out substance in saline solution for 72 hours, then added a growth medium to the blood for 48 hours. Mr. Wyatt asked them to do a chromosome test, but they informed him that he was wasting his money since you can't do a chromosome test on dead white blood cells. They proceeded with the analysis and said, "It's your money." As they began viewing the cells under the microscope, they saw cells dividing before their eyes! They could tell it was human blood, but "This blood is alive!" They couldn't believe what they were seeing! They continued with their tests and found the blood to be unique from any other human blood! Each cell contained only 24 chromosomes compared to the normal count of 46 that you and I have. Christ received 23 chromosomes from Mary, and one "y" chromosome from His heavenly Father to designate a male child. Others in the lab were asked to come see for themselves. With tears in their eyes they asked, "Whose blood is this?" Mr. Wyatt replied, "It is the blood of your Messiah." Then they asked who the Messiah was, and they began wailing and shouting. No other male human being has ever had this same chromosome count! Christ's blood is alive and unique to prove His divinity to the world before He returns to this earth. When these tests are repeated for all the world to see, everyone will learn that Jesus was more than a preacher, He was and is the Son of God!

God had prophesied in the Old Testament that none of Jesus' bones would be broken, and that He would not leave His soul in Hell, neither would He allow Jesus' body to rot or decompose. That's why His blood is still alive today.  

"Therefore (David) being a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him, that of the fruit of his loins, according to the flesh, he would raise up Christ to sit on his throne; He seeing this before spoke of the resurrection of Christ, that his soul was not left in hell, neither his flesh did see corruption. This Jesus has God raised up, whereof we all are witnesses. Therefore being by the right hand of God exalted, and having received of the Father the promise of the Holy Spirit, he has shed forth this which ye now see and hear. 

For David is not ascended into the heavens; but he saith himself, The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand, Until I make thy foes they footstool. Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God has made that same Jesus, whom ye have crucified, both Lord and Christ."  

"For the life of the flesh is in the blood: and I have given it you upon the altar to make an ATONEMENT for your souls: for it its the blood that makes an ATONEMENT FOR THE SOULS" Lev. 17: 11.

For this is my blood of the New Testament (New Covenant), which is shed for many for the remission of sins. Matt:26:28


Now indeed even the first covenant had ordinances of divine service, and an earthly sanctuary. 2. For a tabernacle was prepared. In the first part were the lamp stand, the table, and the show bread; which is called the Holy Place. 3. After the second veil was the tabernacle which is called the Holy of Holies, 4. having a golden altar of incense, and the ark of the covenant overlaid on all sides with gold, in which was a golden pot holding the manna, Aaron’s rod that budded, and the tablets of the covenant; 5. and above it cherubim of glory overshadowing the mercy seat, of which things we can’t speak now in detail. 6. Now these things having been thus prepared, the priests go in continually into the first tabernacle, accomplishing the services, 7. but into the second the high priest alone, once in the year, not without blood, which he offers for himself, and for the errors of the people. 8. The Holy Spirit is indicating this, that the way into the Holy Place wasn’t yet revealed while the first tabernacle was still standing;  9. which is a symbol of the present age, where gifts and sacrifices are offered that are incapable, concerning the conscience, of making the worshipper perfect; 10. being only (with meats and drinks and various washings) fleshly ordinances, imposed until a time of reformation. 11. But Christ having come as a high priest of the coming good things, through the greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this creation, 12. nor yet through the blood of goats and calves, but through his own blood, entered in once for all into the Holy Place, having obtained eternal redemption.

 13. For if the blood of goats and bulls, and the ashes of a heifer sprinkling those who have been defiled, sanctify to the cleanness of the flesh: 14. how much more will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without blemish to God, cleanse your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?

 15. For this reason he (Jesus Christ) is the mediator of a new covenant, since a death has occurred for the redemption of the transgressions that were under the first covenant, that those who have been called may receive the promise of the eternal inheritance.

Remember the Passover, the Day of Atonement, has been celebrated by Jews for thousands of years. It was the day that Jesus died on the cross and the day the high priest would enter into the Holy of Holies once a year, to sprinkle the blood of a spotless lamb on the Mercy Seat of the Ark of the Covenant; to atone for Israel’s sins. Remember when the Jews sprinkled the blood of a innocent spotless lamb on their doors, so that the angel of death, God's final Judgement upon Egypt for their sins, would Passover them.

The Lamb of God as John the Baptist had said, was the "Lord Jesus Christ." The symbolism is unmistakable. Only those who have their sins forgiven and the Lambs blood on the doors of their hearts, will live with God forever in paradise; every one else will dye and must face God's punishment for their sins, because they stubbornly refused to believe.


  For it was not possible that the blood of bulls and of goats should take away sins. Wherefore when God's Son came into the world He said... “Sacrifice and burnt offerings, and offerings for sin, Thou did not desire, neither hast pleasure in them” (which are offered according to the Old Testament law). Then He said, “Behold, I have come to do Thy will, O God.” He takes away the first (TESTAMENT) that He may establish the second. By which we have been sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all. 

And every priest stands ministering daily and offering repeatedly the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins. But this Man, after He had offered one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down at the right hand of God; From henceforth waiting till His enemies are made His footstool. For by one offering He has perfected forever those who are being sanctified. 

Whereof the Holy Spirit also witnesses to us; for after He had said before, “This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, says the LORD: I will put My laws into their hearts, and in their minds I will write them.” “And their sins and their lawless deeds I will remember no more.” Now where there is remission of these, there is no longer an offering for sin. Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the Holiest by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way which He consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, His flesh, and having a High Priest over the house of God, let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water. (Hebrews 10:4 – 22)

And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten out of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his blood.

Behold, he comes with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him; and all kindred's of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen. I AM the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, says the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come the ALMIGHTY. Rev. 1:5,7+8

The Lord through Zechariah prophesied that many Jews will be saved at the second coming of Our Lord Jesus Christ.

 And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem. And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourns for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn” (Zech. 12:9-10).

In that day there shall be a fountain opened to the house of David and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem for sin and for uncleanness”. . . And one shall say unto him, What are these wounds in thine hands? Then he shall answer, Those with which I was wounded in the house of my friends” (Zech. 13:1, 6).


God the Father, who knows all things both past, present and future! He knew before He even created men and women with a free will, that the most precious thing that He had in all of the universe, His only begotten Son “Jesus Christ” would have to die on the cross to pay for the sins of many.

Over 300 prophecies in the Old Testament revealed that Jesus is the Christ the Messiah, “the lamb slain from the foundation of the world.These are the words which Jesus spoke to the multitude while He was yet still with them; that all these things must be fulfilled which were written in the law of Moses and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning Him. Then opened He their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures, And said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behooved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day: And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.

This shows us that God’s salvation plan to save mankind was not limited to one special group of people, or to one specific time in History, but has been made available to every kindred, every tribe and every nation, “from the foundation of the world.” The story of God’s love, mercy and forgiveness is actually older than Moses’s law and the punishment for breaking God's Commandments. All those who lived and died prior to the coming of Christ were saved in the same way as a person is forgiven and saved today. Salvation has always been by faith; "believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shall be saved." Following religious rituals and the letter of the law cannot save anyone! The primary purpose of the law is to show us that we are sinners, and that we need God’s (Jesus Christ’s) help to become the kind of people that we need to be, to get into heaven.

Abraham knew about the promised Messiah. When God asked Abraham to sacrifice his only begotten son Isaac; Abraham was willing to obey God’s command, believing that God was able to bring his son back to life from the dead. When Isaac asked his father “Where is the lamb for a burnt offering? Abraham said; My son, "God will provide Himself, a Lamb for a burnt offering," which was a prophetic promise of the coming Messiah, Jesus Christ the Lamb of God. (Gen.22:8).

If Abraham had been justified by his works he would have had something to be proud of, but his works were not what pleased God, for the Bible says that Abraham believed God, and it was counted unto him for righteousness...” For the promise, that he should be the heir of the world, was not to Abraham, or to his seed, through the law, but through the righteousness of faith. (Romans 4:2-3).

And shall not uncircumcision which is by nature, if it fulfill the law, judge thee, who by the letter and circumcision doest transgress the law? For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh. But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God.


"Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works." (Titus 2:14)
