2 Maccabees Chapter 2
2 And how that the prophet, having given them the law, charged them not to forget the commandments of the Lord, and that they should not err in their minds, when they see images of silver and gold, with their ornaments.
4 It was also contained in the same writing, that the prophet, being warned of God, commanded the tabernacle and the ark to go with him, as he went forth into the mountain, where Moses climbed up, and saw the heritage of God.
8 Then shall the Lord shew them these things, and the glory of the Lord shall appear, and the cloud also, as it was shewed under Moses, and as when Solomon desired that the place might be honourably sanctified.
10 And as when Moses prayed unto the Lord, the fire came down from heaven, and consumed the sacrifices: even so prayed Solomon also, and the fire came down from heaven, and consumed the burnt offerings.
13 The same things also were reported in the writings and commentaries of Neemias; and how he founding a library gathered together the acts of the kings, and the prophets, and of David, and the epistles of the kings concerning the holy gifts.
18 As he promised in the law, will shortly have mercy upon us, and gather us together out of every land under heaven into the holy place: for he hath delivered us out of great troubles, and hath purified the place.
21 And the manifest signs that came from heaven unto those that behaved themselves manfully to their honour for Judaism: so that, being but a few, they overcame the whole country, and chased barbarous multitudes,
29 For as the master builder of a new house must care for the whole building; but he that undertaketh to set it out, and paint it, must seek out fit things for the adorning thereof: even so I think it is with us.

All the Apocryphal Books Are helpful. Especially Maccabees, still reading presently at 2 Maccabees 13 . All gives 400 silent years of insight of Our Lords continual disappointment in our terrible behavior as well as his continual mercy. Christ could 've ended all humanity and earth instead of being crucified. His Grace and Mercy afforded all humanity opportunity to know Heavenly Father- God 's true image - to worship Him - not as in a graven image manner. Also He suffered Bled and died in the likeness of His Only Begotten Son Adonai Yeshua And He Adonai Yeshua in the likeness of his brethren before and Afer Him. Howbeit His death was cause - worthy He had done no sins which made His torture and punishment of Death worse than His brethern were in 2 Maccabees 5:-6:. But Was for our those who obey and worship His Father in Spirit and In Truth deliverance from future torture and the punishment of eternal pains in death.

I find the books of Maccabees fascinating the fact that men are looking for the arc and it says in Macc chapter 2 verse 7 that it shall remain unknown until God regathers his people and receive them unto mercy
