The Search for the Holy Grail
This is a shortened story of about King Arthur and the Round Tables search for the Holy Grail. The real story takes up many pages. Following is King Arthur's version of this story.
If you ever saw Indiana Jones you know in one of the movies he searches for the Holy Grail. If you did not know it, this cup is actually the cup Jesus drank with during his Last Supper. This is also the cup that Joseph Arimathea used to catch Jesus blood when he was hanged on the cross. This cup is also believed to have magical healing powers.
Later, after the Romans were imprisoning Joseph for being a Christian, he marched the Grail to the Holy Land where he built a Castle called Corbenic. Then all his descendants would guard the Holy Grail. But when a descendant named Pelles got a wound that would not heal, the search began for the Holy Grail.
Then one day a vision of the Holy Grail appeared at a feast. One hundred fifty knights looked for the Grail. From the actions of these knights, three were shown as truly worthy of the Grail. These knights, Bors, Galahad, and Perceval, eventually found Corbenic. There they found an angel who brought the Grail to them and the bloody spear that stabbed Jesus on the cross. Then using the Grail, he healed Pelles and sailed in a boat guided by the supernatural to the distant land of Sarras. After Galahad died, the two other men saw the Grail rise to Heaven. No one has seen the Grail since.
