Glastonbury: Land of Grail History & Legend – Part 2

May 9, 2022 | church, holy grail, Jesus

Legend says Jesus himself, being an expert carpenter and stone mason, built his first church in Glastonbury, England.

Chalice Well in Glastonbury – a sacred pilgrimage site where it is said Joseph of Arimathea lay down the shrouded body of Mary Magdalene for a moment, exhausted. When they lifted her body up, two natural water springs came forth, one white and one red. According to legend Mary’s body was buried in the grounds of Glastonbury Abbey where Jesus dedicated his first church to his wife, in her honor.

 

One might easily miss the foundation stone at Glastonbury Abbey, which bears the inscription “JESUS MARIA”, as being insignificant, when in fact it is a valid piece of evidence in our hunt for grail history. Legend says Jesus himself, being an expert carpenter and stone mason, built his first church in Glastonbury, England. The original building was made of wattle and daub, cobb style, and according to legend, Christ inscribed the foundation stone with his name and someone named “Maria”.

 

Who is Maria? To whom did Christ dedicate this shrine?

 

Is the church dedicated to Mary Magdalene, or his mother, Mary? The monastic tour guides say the foundation stone was carved by Jesus’s own hand, dedicated to Mother Mary, but my argument against this, is that no man places his name next to his mother’s like this, in memoriam. What man puts his name next to his mother’s? It is, however, customary to put your wife’s name beside yours. Isn’t it?

Did Jesus dedicate England’s first church to Mary Magdalene, inscribing the foundation stone with his own hand “Jesus Maria”?
