An Ancient Replica of the Ark of the Covenant Found in Zimbabwe?
Teresa Neumann : Jun 3, 2010 : Staff - Associated Press
"In the Zimbabwean Shona language, the artifact is called 'Ngoma Lungundu,' the 'drum that thunders,' while the waLemba call it 'the voice of God.'"
REPORTER'S NOTE: Though the main point of this story is a professor's theory on the Ark of the Covenant and a replica of it, I couldn't help but pick up on one minor detail: King Solomon's progeny. With his penchant for foreign women and his ultimate accumulation of a thousand wives, Solomon undoubtedly fathered hundreds of children, some of them—as this article notes—returning to the country of their mother's birth. A simple extrapolation offers up even more mind-bending possibilities. Since King David was Solomon's father, how many descendants of David are scattered throughout the Middle East and Africa? -Teresa Neumann, BCN.
(Harare, Zimbabwe)—Tudor Parfitt, a professor of Modern Jewish Studies at the University of London's School of Oriental and African Studies who has spent the last twenty years searching for the descendants of a lost tribe of Israel he believes ended up in South Africa. In the process, Parfit believes he has also found a replica of the Ark of the Covenant in Zimbabwe.
