All 3 teams wish Jerusalem, the place every one lays declare to a actual spot, the Dome of the Rock, as a sacred position in its background; all 3 need a country during which politics are subservient to faith. Baigent makes an identical mistake that the fundamentalists make while interpreting the ebook of Revelation. it isn't a booklet of prophecy and handbook for scary sinners again into the fold; it truly is apocalyptic literature that makes use of symbols as mystery codes for the situation within the lives of first- and second-century Christians, delivering them wish for escaping from their plights. unfortunately, Baigent's well-intentioned exposé seems to be little greater than a screed opposed to fundamentalism that's according to a misreading of his important textual content.
