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 heritage; all 3 need a nation within which politics are subservient to faith. Baigent makes a similar mistake that the fundamentalists make while examining the booklet of Revelation. it's not a ebook of prophecy and handbook for scary sinners again into the fold; it's apocalyptic literature that makes use of symbols as mystery codes for the situation within the lives of first- and second-century Christians, delivering 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 line with a misreading of his crucial textual content.
