What passage was the last mention of the Ark of the Covenant?


Was there any mention of how it vanished in the old testament? Might it resurface in the future?

Thanks for asking a question on www.thisisyourbible.com

The last mention of the Ark in the Old Testament would be Jeremiah 3:16-18. Here is a note on this passage from the "Believer's Bible Commentary":

3:15-18 These verses anticipate the Millennium. God will give them shepherds according to His heart, who will feed them with knowledge and understanding. There will then be no need for the ark of the covenant because the Messiah Himself will be there. Jerusalem will be the world capital and called The Throne of the LORD. Israel and Judah will be restored from worldwide dispersion and reunited.

It is also mentioned symbolically in the book of Revelation. Extra-Biblical sources [i.e. the book of Esdras] say that the Ark and all of the temple furnishings were taken to Babylon when Nebuchadnezzar destroyed the city and took Judah and the remnant of Israel captive.
I hope you have found this helpful.
God bless you,
Mike
