Unholy Grail Book One: Fact or Fiction – Mary Magdalene

Mary Magdalene

Introduction

Mary Magdalene is currently one of the most popular figures from the New Testament. As the woman who anointed Jesus with perfume, and to whom Christ appeared first after his resurrection, her life was multifaceted and therefore appealed to many different groups:

  1. She was a troubled woman who found mercy and was helped by Jesus. In other words, she was a very human figure—part saint and part sinner with a hint of sexual intrigue.
  2. She was a deeply dedicated and spiritual woman, humbly devoted to serving both man and God

Unholy Grail Book One: Fact or Fiction – Judas Iscariot

Judas Iscariot

Introduction

Many, if not most of the books that have been written about Judas Iscariot, the betrayer of Jesus Christ, in the last 40 years have taken the position that the traditional view of him is wrong, or at best biased. For example, see the following:

My Name Was Judas, by C.K. Stead
Judas: A Biography, by Susan Gubar

Unholy Grail Book One: The Star Gospel

The only true superhero: Jesus Christ!
~ Willie Aames

The Star Gospel

There are many Biblical references in both the Old and New Testaments to the importance of stars. Here are a few examples:

  • “He determines the number of stars and calls each one of them by name.” Psalms 147:4
  • “Lift up your eyes on high and see who has created these stars; the one who leads forth their host by number. He calls them all by name, and because of the greatness of his might and the strength of his power, not one of them is missing.” Isaiah 40:26

How this novel series came to be written

Unholy Grail

Have you ever wanted to write a novel? Here is how I came to write this one…

I grew up as the son of mom who was an instructor in early childhood education at the University of Minnesota. We had many “kitchen-table” discussions about a plethora of subjects, and as a kid I read hundreds of books. She also liked to see me write, but writing was more of a pain then a pleasure at that point in my life, and I didn’t take too well to her (constructive?) criticism. So it wasn’t until many years later and a career in software development that I began to develop any writing skills, and more importantly, a desire to write.

The Meaning and Significance of the Holy Grail

Holy Grail

Do not seal up the words of the prophecy of this book, for the time is near. Let him who does wrong still do wrong; let him who is filthy still be filthy; let him who does right still do right; and let him who is holy still be holy.
Behold, I am coming soon! My reward is with me, and I will give to every man according to what he has done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End… I am the Root and Offspring of David, and the bright Morning Star.
~ Revelation 22:10-12, 16

The True Holy Grail

Shroud Head

For indeed, Jews ask for signs and Greeks search for wisdom; but we preach Christ crucified, to Jews a stumbling block and to Gentiles foolishness. But to those who are the called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ is the power of God and the wisdom of God.
~ I Corinthians 1:22-24
