As in his earlier books (Holy Blood, Holy Grail; The Jesus Papers), Baigent attempts to discover the darkish forceshiding within the shadows of faith and ferret out fundamentalists whose dogmatism usually turns to violence. concentrating on the top occasions, he warns that strong fundamentalist sects in Christianity, Judaism and Islam are operating to result in the conflict of Armageddon, whilst the forces of darkness can be destroyed via the Messiah, who will then lead to a brand new reign. All 3 teams wish Jerusalem, the place each one lays declare to a actual spot, the Dome of the Rock, as a sacred position in its heritage; all 3 need a country within which politics are subservient to faith. Baigent makes an analogous mistake that the fundamentalists make while studying the ebook of Revelation. it's not a publication of prophecy and guide for scary sinners again into the fold; it really is apocalyptic literature that makes use of symbols as mystery codes for the situation within the lives of first- and second-century Christians, supplying them desire for escaping from their plights. unfortunately, Baigent's well-intentioned exposé seems to be little greater than a screed opposed to fundamentalism that's in keeping with a misreading of his principal textual content.

Eighty-five percent of the thirteens in the Bible refer to something bad. ) There are thirteen words in the harlot's subscription in Revelation 17. There are thirteen letters in Judas Iscariot, and he is mentioned in John 13:13 which has thirteen words in it and thirty-nine letters which is three times thirteen. The word "dragon" occurs thirteen times in Revelation. Nimrod, the first type of Antichrist, is the thirteenth from Adam. The curse of the law is in Galatians 3:13. You are delivered from the curse of the law in Acts 13:39-- multiples of thirteen.
It is a Gentile number. Twelve is plainly a Jewish number, as we are going to see when we get to it. In contradiction with Twelve is Ten, which of course is Gentile. This might give the argument of Garner Ted Armstrong some precedence, although he's not aware of the truth involved (otherwise, I'm sure he would have used it long before now). As you remember, his argument was that the ten northern Tribes of Israel scattered out through Europe and became England and the United States. This "British Israelism" put out by Armstrong is about a hundred years out of date; and it is amazing that you'd find anybody who would subscribe to such a harebrained theory any more, but scores of people do.
D. (if our calendar is correct). All right, that is all that I can do with numbers and I confess ignorance for the rest of them. Perhaps they can be figured. Sixty is certainly six, the number of man, times ten, the number of the Gentiles. Fifty is plainly the Gentile number multiplied by the number of death, five. Seventy is plainly a Gentile number with a seven slapped onto it that indicates completion, and the seventy elders of Israel are set up as the seventy, and there is the LXX--Gentiles trying to imitate them with a Greek translation down in Alexandria, Egypt, which undoubtedly they never made.
