The Living Force
Actually, if you look at the plot, it seems to be a possible retelling of the story of Abraham/Moses, Nefertiti/Sarah and Meritaten/Hagar.
I was thinking more of the stories of Zoroastrianism and its cosmology. Although yes, it may be related to the biblical story of Moses. But then if it is the latter, one would have to mention the ark of the covenant, since both the ark and the grail share the same technological foundations...theoretically.
