Genesis of the Grail Kings
The Explosive Story of the Ancient Bloodline
by Laurence Gardner
 Genesis of the Grail Kings relates to the dawn of monarchy, and to the emergent bloodline which gaverise to the Messianic succession. In biblical terms, weshall concentrate on Old Testament times,particularly on the early stories from the books of Genesis and Exodus.The Bible explains that the Bloodline story began withAdam and Eve, from whose third son, Seth, evolveda line which progressed through Methuselah andNoah, eventually to Abraham, who became the greatpatriarch of the Hebrew nation. It then relates thatAbraham brought his family westwards out of Mesopotamia (present day Iraq) to the land of

Genesis of the Grail Kings : The Explosive Story of the Ancient Bloodline
Canaan (Palestine), from where some of hisdescendants moved into Egypt. After a fewgenerations, they moved back into Canaan where, intime, the eventual David of Bethlehem became kingof the newly defined kingdom of Israel.If viewed as it is presented in the scriptures, this is afascinating saga - but there is nothing anywhere toindicate why the ancestral line of David was in anyway special. In fact, quite the reverse is the case. Hisancestors are portrayed as a succession of wanderingterritory seekers, who are seen to be of no particularrelevance. Their biblical history bears no comparisonto, say, the contemporary pharaohs of ancient Egypt.We are told, however, that their significance comesfrom the fact that they were God's chosen people.This designated status leaves us wondering because,according to the scriptures, their God led themthrough nothing but a succession of famines, warsand general hardship - and on the face of it, theseearly patriarchs do not appear to have been toobright. We are faced, therefore, with a couple of possibilities: Either David was not of the Abrahamicsuccession, and was simply grafted onto the list bylater writers. Or, maybe we have been presentedwith a very corrupted version of the family's earlyhistory.The problem with such distant history is that theearliest Hebrew scriptures were compiled betweenthe 6th and 1st centuries BC. They are not likely,therefore, to be that authentic in relating accuraciesfrom thousands of years before. Indeed, this isplainly the case because their express purpose wasto convey an account which upheld the principles of the Jewish faith - a faith that did not emerge untilwell into the ancestral story.Given that the scriptural books were commencedwhile the Israelites were held captive inMesopotamian Babylon from 586 BC, it is apparentthat Babylon was where the original records werethen held. In fact, from the time of Adam, throughsome nineteen said generations down to Abraham,the whole of Old Testament patriarchal history was
