Spiritually, I think the Grail is irrelevant. I heard it was the cup Christ drank vinegar from on the cross. Also heard it later caught his blood. Whatever it was - if it was - I don't think it would have been preserved. Copied and sold by the church as a holy relic in the middle ages, sure. But otherwise not of consequence.
Please Cagsil accept my apologies. I am very sorry. It was my feeble attempt at humor since I couldn't personally respond to the holy grail and a metaphor with a woman's vagina. Still can't wait to see this topic unfold.
You are the living holy grail birth right of God Jesus the holy spirit check human holy scriptures of all religions. God is human holy DNA holy blood of Jesus lives in us all. You truly are God human grail birth right as are all human life of God
RE the DaVinci code: For the readers, not the movie watchers:
There is a code in the book description, on the inside front and back of the jacket. I don't know if the paperback printing has it, I only have the hard cover. I thought I had found a typo when I was reading it. Then, I found another typo. Then, I realized it was a hidden message. My mom was visiting, so she and I sat down and figured it out.
Not much. Interesting little tid-bit you have there. I published a new hub today, it was a question asked by another Hubber. Ohma asked me to give insight on what I thought of an article. I included the link in the Hub, so people can learn about it. I wasn't exactly sure to take it, but did what I could.
There's Dan Brown's notion of what the holy grail might be and I suppose it is as valid in its own way as any other.
It can be noted, however, that in the British Isles the quest for the holy grail or something similar to it predates Christianity. There are Celtic elements to some of the earliest tales dealing with the holy grail.
I'd like to add my bit to this. I've even considered doing a hub on it. Joseph of Arimathea is said to have brought the cup that jesus drank out of as well as the spear that pierced his side, to the British Isles. According to the later tales of Arthur, his knights set out on a quest to find it. That's the traditional idea that developed when legends of Celtic warlords were transformed into tales of christian knights. Much older Welsh legends tell of Arthur and his companions entering Annwn, the world of the dead, they brave seven castles in their quest to bring into the mortal world the Cauldron of Rebirth. To the celtic mind the grail is one of the three sacred Cauldrons that pre-date christianity.
During the time of Jesus, sex was not a taboo. Jesus, being a healthy male , and I think not gay, had 'known' a lot of women at the time. Some historians suppose he had sex with Mary Magdalen and had children with her. When Jesus was arrested and condemned to death, Mary Magdalen, went away with her children. At some stage, before the middle ages, the descendants arrived to France and stayed there. The grail, comes from the French phrase 'sang royal', which means royal blood. It's supposed that the Grail is only a code name for the descendants of Jesus. Just a theory, the Templars hold as a secret for many years.
Of all the theories, this is the one I like best. Not that I believe in it. But it appeals to me.
One thing is what the scriptures say and other is what people really do. Or are you going to tell me that all tha Christians nowadays arrive virgin to marriage ? Or that everybody follow the 10 commandements ?
Why can't I be glad that something appeals to you? It only means that you gave what I said, more just a passing thought to be dismissed. You mused yourself in the thought. That is what I am glad for. It wasn't meant to be insult.
