Non-Kohanim..[edit]

There are more than enough Cohens in the world, which according to this article can access the Ark. So, why haven't they let in a Cohen? --nlitement [talk] 18:43, 23 May 2008 (UTC)

Possibly they don't recognise the descent of the assorted worldwide Kohanim? Or perhaps they would also need to be an annointed Priest of the Temple? No idea - just speculating. The "holy of holies" of the OT temple was only entered by the High Priest once a year. 62.196.17.197 (talk) 15:21, 25 April 2014 (UTC)

New class grade[edit]

Regretfully, I have downgraded the class of this article from "B" to "Start". It needs a more comprehensive discussion of the history of the church (e.g., Francisco Álvares's description of the 16th century church), & definitely more sources -- inlined, if possible. I'd do it, but I have so many other things on my plate to take care of. -- llywrch (talk) 16:11, 3 March 2011 (UTC)

Not Neutral Point Of View[edit]

This:

"Agreeing with ancient sources about a magnificent light emitted from the Ark, the History Channel in a 2008 special claimed that many of the guardian monks have died in short time, mostly with cataracts having formed in their eyes.[2]"

seems to be advocating a point. It could be reworded to be more neutral, something like:

"Ancient sources state that the Ark emits a magnificent light.[citation needed]. In a 2008 special, the History Channel claimed that many of the guardian monks have died in a short time, mostly with cataracts having formed in their eyes.[2]." — Preceding unsigned comment added by 66.14.154.3 (talk) 03:57, 5 July 2011 (UTC)

Ark of the Covenant claim[edit]

The "Ark of the Covenant" section makes this statement: "This lack of accessibility, and questions about the account as a whole, has led foreign scholars to express doubt about the veracity of the claim." This does not accurately express the utter lack of acceptance of the claims amongst scholars (and really, everyone except those associated with this church). I suggest it be rephrased to something like "This lack of accessibility, and questions about the account as a whole, has done little to change the widespread skepticism of the veracity of the claim".
