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 frequently turns to violence. concentrating on the tip occasions, he warns that robust fundamentalist sects in Christianity, Judaism and Islam are operating to lead to the conflict of Armageddon, whilst the forces of darkness should be destroyed by means of the Messiah, who will then result in a brand new reign. 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 desire a country during which politics are subservient to faith. Baigent makes an analogous mistake that the fundamentalists make whilst interpreting the ebook of Revelation. it isn't a e-book 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 scenario 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 in line with a misreading of his significant textual content.

Ps. 50 A possible explanation is that Ps. 97 and 99 are for their part the only two one insists on holding onto both the psalm’s textual unity and superior age, but this is not evident. 2–4; the Song of the Sea in Ex. 15; Ps. 74:12–17 in a complaint about the destroyed temple; Isa. 44:27–28.

99:1 יהוה מלך יהוה מלך מלך אלהיך מלך יהוה מלך יהוה ימלך יהוה cf. 1Chron. 16:31 יהוה מלך cf. Ex. 15:18 יהוה ימלך That the qatal-x form of this utterance differs in meaning from the x-qatal form has been shown to be a fruitful working hypothesis. The qatal-x form (for example, Ps. 47:9) emphasises the action, the x-qatal form (for example, Ps. 93:1) makes a statement about the person who has completed the action, and indicates that this action has signified him hence forth: ‘It is Yhwh, who is (has become) king’.
29:3 in 96:11 as well as in 98:7. The mentioned heavens, gods, and trees, along with the clearer references to the creation myth in general as compared to Ps. 98,22 might equally be linked up due to the close affinity between Ps. 96 and Ps. 29.

We can now attempt to understand the differences and similarities between Ps. 96 and 98 in light of the overall arrangement of the fourth book of Psalms.
