I been wondering about the Holy Grail, has anyone ever come close to finding it? What about the Ark of Truth? These are two important relics that are written in the history of time, but none have been found or proof that they exist? Are they mythical objects that were part of the greatest story or are they real thing?

If you study the Jewish customs for the Passover. The Apostles and Jesus would all have there own cup,  which should complicate the issue sufficently!  The same for the Ark, was the original lost, then replaced with a replica?

But it is a interesting subject. To find the original of both, it would definitely be something invaluable to history. An actual relic that told in Christain, Jewish, and Muslim legends would on a magnitude unlike any archeology discovers that came before. Something that has been searched for over 2000 years...

As far as I know there has never been any Holy Grail of any kind, whether it be a cup or a person. Legend abounds but there has never been any real proof of its existence. As for the ark of truth, no such thing exists except in Stargate. If on the other hand you are speaking of the Ark of the Covenant, then there is a real possibility that it now resides in Ethiopia.

Well, if it's true(regarding the Ark of the Covenant and Ethiopia), I wish it would be disclosed to the entire world, allowing responsible inspection.

If the Holy Grail were more than the invention of medieval romance, I think it would kind of be the coolest thing ever.  But since the legend only really got rolling after the Templars...I'm kind of chalking it up to creative literary minds of the day.  I mean, everyone and his brother wrote a Grail romance.

As for the Ark, I've heard the stories of it being in Ethiopia, in that church.  Arksum, Chapel of the Tablet.  I knew I'd remember it.

And for giggles, found an old article from a year ago about said church:

Sorry I was thinking about the wrong ark, but thanks for the information guys. I like to keep this topic going about these two artifacts. Maybe sooner or later will discover the actual truth about them. I decided to bring it up because no-one is hardly talking about these two supposely powerful artifacts.

The holy Grail is ment to be the cup of Christ, so if you believe in the bible and the last supper then you have to believe that the cup exsists.

As for the ask most people say it is in ethopia, but noone can prove that it is.

There are some great stories surrounding both objects, so great post and i will be following with it with intreast

A team of scientists led by renowned French marine archaeologist Franck Goddio recently announced that they have found a bowl, dating to between the late 2nd century B.C. and the early 1st century A.D., that is engraved with what they believe could be the world's first known reference to Christ.

The Holy Grail is the body of Christ.

It's not a thing, it's a person.

Hi there,

I think that you would find that you are mistaken. According to both Christian and Catholic religions the holy grail is a cup or bowl. Refrences below.

That is just off a google search. Please have a look OR post why you think its is Jesus and not an object.
