"What are the Bible's "ark of the covenant" and cherubim? Raanan Eichler examines these objects with an abundance of visual comparative material, including finds from the tomb of Tutankhamun. He proposes solutions to a number of unsolved puzzles and offers a new explanation of the nature of the ark and the cherubim, arguing that they constituted a unique cultic focus in the ancient Near East."--Publisher.

And in doing this it also aims to show that the gospel of love and mercy through a divine Redeemer has always been known from the beginning, being clearly set forth in the types and symbols of all pre-christian forms of worship, but especially in the Ark of the Cove nant, which symbolized Christ our Saviour in his two natures and one person, and in every essential feature of his mediatorlal office and redemptive work in the divine scheme of hu.
