The Ark of Edessa,By Ralph Ellis, The year was 165 AD and the location was the Edessan. necropolis at Sogmatar in what was then northern Syria In this. year King Wa el of Edessa had an inscription carved upon the. sacred hill of Sogmatar which said, In Sebat of the year 476 of the Seleucid era we set up this. pillar netsib on this blessed mountain and erected a seat. kersa for the one who maintains it The governor will be a. budar and he will give the seat to the one who is going to. maintain it If he withholds the seat or the pillar is ruined god. will be the judge 1, Before we come onto the meaning of this inscription lets first. look at the hill of Sogmatar It is the central focus of the Edessan. royal necropolis which lies in a very remote location in the. barren rolling hills to the southeast of Edessa modern Sanlurfa. in Turkey And the strange thing about this man made hill is. that it is the same size and shape as Silbury Hill in England Why. and how this similarity arose is open to speculation. Figure 1 The identical man made hills of Silbury and Sogmatar. Photo credit Ralph Ellis,Pillars and thrones, It was upon this man made hill at Sogmatar that this.
inscription was found But what does it mean The translation. by Han Drijvers mentions a netsib bun pillar But Steven Ross. in his analysis of Roman Edessa calls this same pillar a betyl. omphalos stone 2 Now this is interesting for it implies that the. Edessan netsib bun pillar was the same as a Judaic matseb ah. hbum The latter is a term that refers to both a pillar and to a. small pyramid a small conical stone an omphalos stone. The most famous matseb was the pillar of Jacob that Jacob. anointed with oils when he was at Haran in northern Syria as. narrated in Genesis 28 18 This ritual appears to be very similar. to the anointing of Hindu lingams which are also basted with. oils in exactly the same fashion So the Syrian netsib and the. Judaic matseb must have been small conical stones basted with. oils So was Jacob venerating a Hindu lingam Possibly but. since the Hindu lingam is often basted with a Minoan rhyton it. would appear that this ritual has travelled from west to east. rather than vice versa And the most likely conduit for this. transfer of veneration and ritual would be the Indian. campaigns of Alexander the Great especially as the Greeks. were also closely identified with a similar matseb omphalos. stone as we shall see, Figure 2 A Hindu lingam basted with oils in exactly the same. fashion as Jacob s Pillar Jacob s small conical stone Photo. Credit Lotus Sculptures, Thus the Sogmatar inscription mentions a small omphalos. stone but it also mentions a seat But it is highly likely that the. Syriac kersa seat was actually derived from the Judaic korsa. aork which refers more to a royal throne than to a common. seat But what type of throne was this Was it a throne for a. king or a throne of the gods And where might we find a sacred. stone and a divine throne in close proximity to each other The. answer can be seen in the throne of Apollo who is often. depicted sitting on a sacred stone Remarkably we not only see. this stone on Greek coinage but it is now in the Delphi museum. although this is a very ancient copy of the original. Figure 3 Left A Greek coin of Seleucus III showing Apollo. seated upon the sacred omphalos stone of Delphi Right This. stone or an ancient copy of this stone still exists at Delphi. Photo credit Ralph Ellis, So the netsib matseb conical stone and the kersa korsa throne. were intimately related objects they were both thrones of the. gods But it was not just the Greeks who had a sacred stone that. was also a throne so too did the Israelites, So when might we encounter a sacred stone within Judaism. that was intimately connected to a seat or a throne For the. answer we only need to turn to the Book of Exodus which says. And thou shalt make a mercy seat of pure gold And the. cherubims shall stretch forth their wings on high covering the. mercy seat with their wings And thou shalt put the mercy seat. above upon the Ark of the Covenant and in the ark thou shalt. put the two stones that I shall give you Exodus 25 17 21. Interesting So the other ancient reference to a combination of. a seat 3 and a stone from this region refers to the Ark of the. Covenant itself But these are not the same artifact at all. readers will exclaim because the Ark of the Covenant was a. wooden box containing sacred stones while Apollo is seated on. the sacred stone itself These are different depictions and. therefore components of completely different traditions. That would be the correct deduction were it not for the fact. that we have images of the sacred stone that was placed on the. top of the hill at Sogmatar near Edessa These images are from. the coins of King Wa el of Edessa the same king who. commissioned the inscription The coins depict a cube inside a. small temple and archaeologists and numismatists call this. strange artifact a cubic betyl stone, Figure 4 Two examples of the Edessan betyl stone housed in a.
small temple The king here is King Wa el the same king who. wrote the inscription Photo credit Forum Ancient Coins. But is this cube really a stone Readers may see that in the. upper image the cube rests on small feet while in the lower. image it rests on spoked wheels So is this cube a stone Surely. it would be too heavy for small feet or wooden wheels. Sometimes I despair at the illogicality displayed by academics. because it is fairly obvious that these images actually portray a. wooden box a box that contained the sacred icon of the god. The cube is called a betyl but this does not refer to a stone. instead it is derived from beth el la tyb meaning house of god. Thus the cube is not made of stone it is an Ark of the Covenant. that housed the sacred stone icons of the gods, Figure 5 A computer generated image of the Ark of the. Covenant This image conforms to the specifications and. measurements given in the Book of Exodus, In the biblical quote above the Ark of the Covenant was also. being called a seat In which case it is fairly safe to say that the. Edessan kersa korsa seat was actually the Ark of the Covenant. while the Edessan netsib matseb stone s were the two sacred. stones that were placed inside the Ark Quite obviously the. Edessan monarchs had a Judaic Ark of the Covenant at Edessa. And yet since this royal family became so influential in Judaea. and Jerusalem then perhaps we can also surmise that they had. the Ark of the Covenant Not a mere copy but the original Ark. from the Exodus,Travellogue, But how could the kings of Edessa have come across the Ark of. the Covenant The history is tortuous but as is described in. detail in The King Jesus Trilogy the Edessan monarchy were. Judaeo Egyptians who had been exiled to Parthia in the 1st. century BC and then further exiled to northern Syria in the. early 1st century AD It was in Edessa that this royal family. converted to Nazarene Judaism and it was from Edessa that. they set out to conquer Judaea They began this conquest with. acts of philanthropy with Josephus Flavius recording that the. Edessans furnished the Temple of Jerusalem and donated its. solid gold menorah The Syriac historians say that the. Adiabene and Edessan royal family were one and the same. So yes this is a family who would have been very interested in. acquiring an ancient Judaic artifact like the Ark of the Covenant. And although we have no definitive evidence for the route the. Ark may have taken we have plenty of circumstantial evidence. for the travels of these conical sacred stones The original stone. was the Benben stone of Heliopolis But a very similar stone is. mentioned in connection with the patriarch Jacob as we have. seen A very similar stone then appears in Delphi in Greece but. it seems to have migrated to Parthia Persia in later. generations possibly via the campaigns of Alexander the Great. But this is interesting because the Edessan royal family came. from Parthia so is this how they acquired their sacred stone. The Edessan royalty then took this stone to Sogmatar which is. only 20 km northeast of Haran the place where Jacob anointed. his stone many centuries previously So was Jacob at Sogmatar. Did this sacred hill exist way back in antiquity rather than it. being built in the Romo Parthian era as the history books. The next thing to consider is whether these Greco Edessan. Parthian omphalos stones could even fit into the original Ark of. the Covenant According to the Torah the Ark measured 2 5 x. 1 5 x 1 5 cubits Since it was proven in the book Thoth Architect. of the Universe that the Torah was referring to the Egyptian. thoth or royal cubit which measured 52 4 cm then the Ark. measured 1 31 x 0 79 x 0 79 meters Now while such a chest. could not have housed the huge and ornate omphalos of Delphi. it could easily have contained a stone similar to the smaller. Delphi omphalos, That the original omphalos stone was actually fairly small is. perhaps proven by the later coinage of Emperor Elagabalus In. 218 AD just a few generations after the Edessan coin was. minted a Syrian king from this very same region became. Emperor of Rome This was the slightly deranged Emperor. Elagabalus who was also the high priest of the Elagabal. Surprisingly the Elagabal was this very same conical omphalos. stone and so the coinage of Elagabalus depicts yet more images. of this sacred conical stone As can be seen in fig 6 the stone is. definitely conical and it is being driven around Rome in a. chariot A big heavy stone would require a cart not a chariot. the stone is exaggerated in size so it can be easily seen on the. coin Again the suggestion is that the true omphalos stone s. were small enough to travel in a chariot and small enough to fit. inside the Ark of the Covenant In fact for two of them to fit in. the Ark they would need to measure less than 0 75 m high and. 0 65 m across the base 2 5 x 2 1 ft This is about the same size. as the smaller Delphi omphalos but still quite a weight for a. small wooden box, Figure 6 A coin of Emperor Elagabalus showing the Elagabal.
omphalos stone placed in a chariot Note the stone has the. emblem of the Phoenix embossed upon it which demonstrates. that this was a Sun stone possibly a meteorite Photo credit. Forum Ancient Coins,Strange powers, One final thing to explore is the strange powers that the Ark of. the Covenant is said to have possessed Since we have. conclusively linked the Ark of the Covenant with the Elagabal. omphalos stone s did these mysterious powers emanate from. the Ark itself or from the sacred stones it contained The. Elagabal stone was supposed to be a highly magnetic meteorite. and several pieces of evidence for this were discussed in the. book King Jesus including the Arthurian tale of a sword getting. stuck on this sacred stone Although it would be entirely. natural for an iron or steel sword to get stuck on a magnetic. rock in exactly this fashion such a reaction would be totally. inexplicable to the vast majority of people in the Middle Ages. If two highly magnetic omphalos stones had been placed inside. the Ark of the Covenant then the Ark would also appear to be. highly magnetic Nothing can stop a magnetic field not even. something as substantial as gold although some ferromagnetic. materials can redirect the magnetic field And so if someone. approached the golden Ark with a ferrous artifact like a sword. it would be instantly attracted to the Ark Anyone unfamiliar. with magnetism might become highly alarmed at such a. powerful and invisible force acting upon them and to an. uneducated soldier it would seem like the very hand of god. himself had just reached out and grasped their sword How else. 1 5 x 1 5 cubits Since it was proven in the book Thoth Architect of the Universe that the Torah was referring to the Egyptian thoth or royal cubit which measured 52 4 cm then the Ark measured 1 31 x 0 79 x 0 79 meters Now while such a chest could not have housed the huge and ornate omphalos of Delphi
