[b-hebrew] Ark of the Covenant

I don't think anyone here doubts that the Ark of the Covenant 
exemplified Egyptian influences in its design and form.

I think that, although it is fun to speculate regarding which Dynasty 
influenced the Hebrews the most artistically, it's not very fruitful. 
Personally, I don't think it will be so until we have a conclusive time 
window for a mass Hebrew presence/exodus from Egypt. Until then, we can 
suggest connections from the Early Bronze Age until the Persian period, 
but what is the point?

Best Salaams,
