K-REV Christian Radio Announcers Jacob interacts with K-REV’s
reporter Becca with a startling breaking news K-REVelation.
You’re listening to the
All-new Digital Family-friendly Christian Radio Network K-REV.
The top story this morning is a story that went viral on the
internet over the weekend. Bob
and Marcia—regular listeners of K-REV—went to a rummage sale in Queens,
New York on Saturday and purchased a cup.
What’s the big deal about a cup purchased from a rummage sale?
We have K-REV’s own Becca on the scene for a live report and a
press conference. Becca?
Thanks Jake. I’m
standing in the middle of Hauser Street in Queens outside of Bob and
Marcia’s home. The street is
packed with curious onlookers and dozens of reporters, along with
satellite trucks, cameras, microphones, wires and the hum of small
For those who haven’t seen it on the internet yet or heard about it on the
news, why is this cup so
special? It’s just a plain old
wooden cup, right?
Apparently from what I’ve read and what
I’m hearing as I talk to people on the scene, this is an extraordinary
cup. It’s an ancient wooden
chalice, vacuum sealed and carefully secured in a glass case.
There is one scripture etched on the metal base, from Psalm 23:5,
“My cup runneth over.”
Ahhh, so that’s why they’re calling it
The Psalm 23 Cup?
Right! Marcia happened to be
at the rummage sale with a local T.V. reporter.
The reporter mentioned the cup on the news along with a cell phone
photo of it over the weekend.
The report went viral, and here we are camping out on the street.
What’s the buzz?
Why all the interest over an old wooden cup?
are flying that this chalice is the
mean the cup, as in THE cup?
Yes! Many are
claiming it is the Holy Grail—the cup Jesus used in the Last Supper.
It’s sparked worldwide interest in just a few hours.
It’s exciting just to be here.
When is the press
Any minute now.
What are the
people saying around you?
Some are saying this is all a
hoax—just a distraction to keep our minds off of the upcoming election.
Others are true believers and they really want to know if it’s
true…Okay, they are about to start.
Here we go! Let me
switch it over.
Thank you all for coming out here on this glorious day in Queens.
I called this press conference to address the rumors flying around
our city and the world regarding The
Psalm 23 Cup. I will turn
this over to Bob and Marcia who will tell the story of how this happened.
I will defer my comments to the end.
Marcia and I were rummagin’ on Saturday.
Usually I just sit in da car and wait but for some reason dat day I
went to da house wit her.
Yeah, I wuz lookin’ for some
clothes for my grandkids when I saws this cup sittin behind a space heater
on an old table. I asked the
lady if it was for sale. She
says, ‘Yes.’ I asked, ‘How
Much?’ She says, ‘You can have it for 20 bucks.’
I thought to myself, that’s pretty cheap for an antique.
So we bought it. As we were
payin’ fer it, a nosy female-type reporter started askin’ all kinds-a
questions and took a picture of it.
She was sooooo nice.
Marcia) She was soooo nice.
She was so nosy, is what she was.
amazing things have happened
since we’ve had this cup at our house.
Suddenly my arthritis
Thank you, Lord…
Thanks Bob and Marcia.
What matters here that as believers in Christ it doesn’t matter if
an old relic shows up or not: we live by faith in Him and His Word.
That being said, I do believe that this cup was brought back to the
world for such a time as this.
It’s here to remind us all
one more time Jesus died for our sins.
It’s time to repent! We’ll take no
questions at this time. Thank
That’s it for now. Jake?
