It is unknown what became of the staff after the Temple was destroyed and the Jews were exiled from the land. According to an identifying document at the Hagia Sophia in Istanbul, Moses’s staff would supposedly be on display today at the Topkapı Palace, Istanbul, Turkey.The staff is first mentioned in the Book of Exodus 4:2 when God appears to Moses in the burning bush. God asks what Moses has in his hand, and Moses answers “a staff” (“a rod” in the KJV version). The staff is miraculously transformed into a snake and then back into a staff.
