I'd like to know if the Grail were rally what would it be made of.My guess would be stone.The Romans could lathe cups from the native stone and stone was considered more pure for then wood. But I'd like to know what you guys think it might be made of. Thanks
Few homes at that time (1st century) would be like modern homes built of wood. A "carpenter" at that time would more likely be a stone mason. So maybe a clay cup or a lathed stone cup, not so much wood I'd guess.
Whoever said that the so called holy grail was a cup Jesus made himeslf and carried around everywhere he went. (29 CE Sports bottle?) As the 'last supper' that he attended with his apsotles was directly after the Penticost Celebration meal, there were already the cups, etc. there. He simply used what was already available.
Given that clay was the most used source material for cups, oil lamps, water basins, cooking pots, etc. It would likewise be sensible that these drinking glasses were made of clay.
I doubt that anyone making it at the time said, "Hey, we're crafting a special glass for Jesus to drink out of tonight!" Not to mention, that it was passed around to 11 other guys to drink out of as well!
