Quotes to Consider:

C. F. Keil on I Kings 8:20-21: "The ark is ... the kernel and star of the temple, because it was the throne of the glory of God."

H. Hoeksema: "For notice that [Christ] became, or was made unto us wisdom, and righteousness and sanctification, and redemption, and that this is all from God. He became all this unto us by a wonder of the Triune God, Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, and according to His eternal good pleasure. For it was determined from before the foundation of the world that the Son should be the revelation of all the fulness of God, the first born of every creature, and the first begotten of the dead. And to Him was given the Church, for we are chosen in him (Eph. 1:4) that He might redeem that Church unto himself and to God, and through the deep way of death might justify, and purify, and glorify that Church, in order that the fulness of God’s glory, dwelling in Him, might be revealed in manifold reflections of grace and beauty through the millions upon millions of the members of His body" (Triple Knowledge, vol. 1, p. 276).
