Dear John Bidwell,
First of all, Happy New Year and greetings to all. It's been a long time since my last post.
I don't know whether this possibility is founded. There is a theory by Ron Wyatt that says that the “Most Holy” is the Ark of the Covenant, and that Jesus's blood would have anointed it, because according to that account, the Ark would be hidden (more than 600 years before the death of Christ) in a cave located approximately 20 feet below the base of the center cross hole.
“The Bible says that when Jesus died there was an earthquake and the rocks were rent (Mt 27:51). A Roman soldier speared Christ in His side in order to make sure He was dead, and blood and water poured out (John 19:34). Ron Wyatt discovered that this same blood and water poured down through the earthquake crack and fell upon the Mercy Seat of the Ark of the Covenant.”
I do not know if this is correct, but if this is true, the theory would make a lot of sense, because the Mercy Seat was the sacred place where the blood of the sacrifice had to be poured. I really can’t say if this is correct and I’m not endorsing anything, just presenting the possibility.

I’m not endorsing Ron Wyatt’s story, I’m just presenting it as a possibility. But even if the story is false, the idea of the “Most Holy” place being the Ark of the Covenant makes sense to me.
