Yes, but don't you find it somewhat odd that an object with such legendary 'power' is not documented in any of extra-Biblical contemporaneous accounts?

The documented evidence to which you allude is 600 years after the New Testament was composed; hardly contemporaneous with the Old Testament tales of Moses and his Ark.

If it was real and so powerful, why is there no reference to it from historical records during this time period other than the Bible?

Sounds fishy to me!
