Catholic Biblical School – I.6 – The Ark of the Covenant – Exodus 25-31, 40

Recorded October 26th 2010 CBS – Exodus 25-31 – The Ark of the Cove

The design and construction of the Ark of the Covenant, and other items for worship in the Tabernacle.

We were struck by the happy coincidence of installing the new Tabernacle in the sanctuary of St. Thomas More a few days ago. We considered the various precious materials used for the Ark, and their connection with Catholic worship.

We discussed the ‘Cherubs’ on the Ark of the Covenant, and here is a picture of a Cherub in the Assyrian style, from the British Museum in London:
