In Rev 11:19 the ark of His covenant was seen in heaven. What was it? Here is one interpretation: In the following verses Rev 12:1-6 we see a woman who is best described as Mary the Mother of Jesus. I believe it was Mary. Why? How is she the ark? Because the ark carried three things that refers to Jesus. Jesus is Prophet, Priest and King of the New Covenant. manna=word=prophet aarons rod=priest Ten Commandments=law=king Just as the ark of the mosaic covenant carried these things, so Mary carried Jesus.
