I have recently heard a very interesting theory about the Ark and I will share it with all of you to get your opinion.
The Ark in Genisis is a symbol of the coming Christ. Not that the people of the day would have known what it was but that when we read the bible we can make the parallel between Christ and the Ark. The ark was the vessell that saved Noah and his family from death much like Jesus Christ is the vessell that saves those who believe from eternal damnation.
It makes sense if you have read the bible but is it a stretch? Or is it inline with what God wants us to get from the bible?
