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 kingdom within which politics are subservient to faith. Baigent makes an identical mistake that the fundamentalists make while studying the e-book of Revelation. it isn't a publication of prophecy and guide for scary sinners again into the fold; it's apocalyptic literature that makes use of symbols as mystery codes for the scenario within the lives of first- and second-century Christians, providing 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 critical textual content.
