Nicolas Cage Really Tried To Discover The Holy Grail


The Bible makes no point out of a chalice on the Final Supper, and nor does non secular art work. If Jesus did drink from a chalice that evening, that would not make it magic just like the legends say. Catholics consider that each single reenactment of the Final Supper is magic, reworking wine to blood and renewing Jesus’ sacrifice, and but they consider the unique supper was not—that first supper was simply Jesus saying what would occur and telling the disciples methods to bear in mind him. 

Some variations of the legend say that biblical man Joseph of Arimathea used this identical chalice to catch Jesus’ spilled blood in the course of the crucifixion. It is unclear why he would use that precise chalice for that objective or how he received it, however even when he did that, that will simply make the grail a pleasant relic to personal, not magic, going off Christian guidelines. Sure, Jesus’ blood grants everlasting life, however it's everlasting life after dying, the “blood” is Jesus’ sacrifice quite than fluid preserved from his lifeless physique, and (once more) we are able to make all of the blood we wish each day in church. 

Nonetheless, Nicolas Cage spent years studying up on the grail to attempt to monitor it down. His analysis took him to Glastonbury in England, the place a properly is alleged to style like blood as a result of the Grail as soon as lay right here. Cage famous that the style actually got here from iron within the water. His analysis additionally led him to Newport, Rhode Island, the place an previous stone tower is alleged to predate recorded European presence in America as a result of it was made by the Knights Templar, guardians of the grail. 

“What I finally discovered,” stated Cage, upon discovering no bodily proof of the Grail, “is: What's the Grail however Earth itself? The metaphor for me is the earth. The divine object is Earth.” That is the type of profound, mature assertion meaning completely nothing. 

He additionally purchased some property in Rhode Island. It appeared like a pleasant place.
