An Exploration of The Unique Children of the Savior (Part 3 of 3)

The Sangraal (Holy Grail) has been defined as a cup or chalice that held the sacred blood of Jesus shed at the crucifixion. The word graal is from the langue d’Oc region of France and with the words grasal, grazal, grezal, gresal, means a vessel in which is put liquid.


However, if the word is pronounced sang raal (réal) we have the Old French for “blood royal.” It was not a gold, silver, onyx, amethyst, glass, enamel or stone, or even an olive wood cup but rather a mortal earthen (humas) vessel—and that vessel being the uterine chalice or womb of Mary Magdalene and the Bethany sisters. The children, themselves became vessels of this bloodline, which flourishes to this very day.


Through Christ’s royal, and his wives’ noble, lineage, the world was destined to be blessed (see 2 Corinthians 4:7). Starbird affirms that “through her [Mary Magdalene], dominion would one day be restored to Sion.” These chosen lineages in themselves do not bestow personal privilege, righteousness, and certainly no racial superiority. As Malcolm Godwin noted, “Enlightenment has yet to be proved to be carried in the genes.”


Rather, these bloodlines helped prepare premortally chosen candidates for special earthly missions to serve mankind, not to rule them. All are God’s children, for as the Apostle Paul noted, “And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth” (Acts 17:26). Nevertheless, Erastus Snow gave the following insight: “For he has had his eye upon the chosen spirits that have come upon the earth in the various ages from the beginning of the world up to this time.”



Loving service was the epitome of the Grail code and chivalry. It would be through a destined divine channel that God would route spiritual blessings to an unhealed world. The house of Israel was uncommon in the promises given to its seed: “For thou art an holy people unto the Lord thy God: the Lord thy God hath chosen thee to be a special people unto himself, above all people that are upon the face of the earth” (Deuteronomy 7:6).


The Savior could have had numerous children from several wives. These infants, of  both sexes, would form a distinct tribal ancestry. Mary Magdalene, Mary and Martha, and perhaps others may have been “Grail Mothers.” By right of primogeniture, Mary Magdalene’s first male child might have been given the name-titles of Shiloh ben Jesus or Joseph bar Jesus.


And what of these children? Isaiah wrote of prophecies possibly relating to the posterity of Jesus Christ, “I saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple”  (Isaiah 6:1). The Lord’s train or cortege could mean a number of retainers, or even His family. The latter view is clearly expressed by President Brigham Young: “The scripture says that He, the Lord, came walking [or sitting] in the temple, with His train; I do not know who they were unless His wives and children.”


There is another bit of information that favors Jesus Christ having children. After His resurrection, the Savior commanded Mary Magdalene not to touch him (John 20:17). This command may have been due to Mary Magdalene’s condition. If she were in late-term pregnancy and followed the precepts for dynastic brides, “she was allowed no physical contact with her husband at that time.”28 However, it was the Grail author Keith Laidler, who has found the most persuasive quotation to date:


Until now, there has seemed to be no documentary evidence of any offspring of Jesus, and the argument has had to be supported by logical deductions, historical correspondences and later legendary accounts, and by noting intriguing gaps in the story of Christ. It seems to have passed the notice of every other researcher that, astonishingly, a reference to the children of Jesus actually exists in the literature.


I found it in the Jewish writings, in the Toldoth. Here, we find a passage that confirms the gospel account that, just before the feast of Passover, Jesus entered the city of Jerusalem riding on an ass. But there is one telling addition to the story: “Now in that year Passover fell on a Sabbath, and he and his sons came to Jerusalem, on the rest day of Passover, that is on a Friday, he riding on an ass and saying to his disciples: ‘Of me it was said: Rejoice greatly, Daughters of Zion.’”


The source is not quite as definitive as Laidler supposes for, the “he” is conjectured. However, the identification of the passage is fraught with Grail implications. For instance, “and his sons” could literally refer to His biological sons. His sireship of Grail children surely must have happened. For in him and in his seed “the whole world” would be blessed. Without children the ancient curse would remain.


We say it was Jesus Christ who was married, to be brought into the relation whereby he could see his seed, before he was crucified. — Orson Hyde
