As the posterity of the Holy Grail reached critical mass, the outstanding nuclear DNA genes inherited from the Savior would be diluted by half nearly every generation. Thus by three generations they would be indistinguishable from other people.
On the other hand, the non-recombining Y-chromosome and mitochondrial DNA, while bestowing no traits or divinity (only maleness for the Y), would retain enough unmutated DNA as an identifying marker through the centuries. Could this be the now famous M-222 marker? Thus it was necessary for the Savior to have at least one male and one female child, to perpetuate the two distinct lineages of promise, coming from Judah and Ephraim respectively.
There is an engaging account of Jesus approaching the house of the deceased Lazarus, whom He will soon raise from the dead. In John 11 we read of Martha running off to greet him while he was away off (John 11:21, 28–29). At the same time, Mary her sister sat still in the house and waited for Jesus’ visit. This seems opposite of the way it is normally scripted between the two sisters. Why didn’t Mary also rush to greet the Savior, leaving Martha to tidy up the house? Perhaps Mary couldn’t; perhaps she was “heavy with child” and unable to run, being a “sitting shivah” mourning her brother, Lazarus.
Two ideas center upon this occasion. One was that she was not permitted to leave her duty unless her husband requested her presence. Thus Martha, instead of Mary, rushed to meet Jesus. It therefore follows in John 11:28 when Martha says, “The master is here and called thee,’ As soon as she [Mary] heard this, she rose quickly and came to him.”
She could not leave her shivah post until her husband or master summoned her. Another idea is suggested when Mary sat at Jesus’ feet instead of helping Martha with the meal. Was Mary pregnant with Christ’s child, the “Holy Grail in utero?”
On earth, according to Orson Hyde, the Savior was fruitful. Hyde questioned, “Has He indeed passed by the nature of angels [celibacy], and taken upon Himself the seed of Abraham, to die without leaving seed to bear His name on the earth? No!” he answered. In October 1854, Orson Hyde spoke strongly in favor of Christ begetting children:
Elder Hyde in March 1857 again speaks of the strong reaction against Mormon acceptance of a married-with-children Christ at that time:
At this doctrine the long-faced hypocrite and the sanctimonious bigot will probably cry, blasphemy! Horrid perversion of God’s word! Wicked wretch! He is not fit to live! etc., etc. But the wise and reflecting will consider, read and pray. If God be not our Father, grandfather, or great grandfather, or some kind of a father in reality, in deed and in truth, why are we taught to say, “Our Father who art in heaven?
How much soever of holy horror this doctrine may excite in persons not impregnated with the blood of Christ, and whose minds are consequently dark and benighted, it may excite still more when they are told that if none of the natural blood of Christ flows in their veins, they are not the chosen or elect of God.
The concept of tribal bloodlines explains that there are particular channels or receptacles awaiting premortal spirits to be born on earth through certain pedigrees. Many special spirits were assigned to come through the Savior’s seed. Christ’s direct posterity may properly be called the true Rex Deus, “King of God,” lineage to this day though it be a multitude of people.
Maybe some of these unique children married sturdy peasant stock, while others went on to the aristocracy, becoming the foundation of many royal dynasties, it does not matter. From certain well-placed children this robust Sangraal (Shiloh bloodline) may possibly have leavened the noble houses of Britain and Europe, deep into the rich humas of the working class. It is the author’s opinion that their true identity was withheld even from them. It is entirely possible that hundreds of millions of people now partake of the Grail lineage, though only a relative few are of the full Rex Deus-Shiloh Dynasty.
There was, however, among the several children of Christ a singular child whom we might call the Patriarch, Shiloh ben Jesus. Perhaps it was to this child that the scriptures refer—“It is a servant in the hands of Christ, who is partly a descendant of Jesse as well as of Ephraim, or of the house of Joseph, on whom there is laid much power” (D&C 113:4). Our story centers around all the children of Christ, but most particularly two children, one blessed with the patriarchal and another with the matriarchal bloodlines.
