The search for the biblical “holy grail” is perhaps the best known quest to find real evidence of objects, locations and events from the New Testament. As a result, it has become a metaphor for anything that is eagerly sought after. The Old Testament or Hebrew Bible has many more of these “holy grail” objects and quests, and biblical archeologists are continually finding hard evidence to support the stories. One which has resisted scientific or archeological proof is Noah’s ark – the wooden ship said to have been built by Noah to save the world’s animals and his family from a global flood. No evidence of either has ever been found, although there are some geological signs of major local floods that could have inspired the story.
