Samuel Lee

Preterist Samuel Lee

Father of Syriac Studies in Britain

Eusebius, Bishop of Caesarea, on the Theophania, or Divine Manifestation of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. A Syriac Version. Edited from an ancient manuscript recently discovered by S. Lee. Syriac. London: Society for the Publication of Oriental Texts (1842)

A Brief Memoir


A CRITIC OF LEE'S THEOLOGY:

"Surely one, who can understand the language 'a thousand years' as denoting the insignificant period reaching from the time of Christ to the destruction of Jerusalem -- about half a century -- is utterly unworthy of the office he has taken upon himself -- to expound the prophecies of the Word of God."

 

Thomas Meyers
Calvin's Translator

An Inquiry into the Nature, Progress, and End of Prophecy. By Samuel Lee, D.D. London, 1849. || The Events and Times of the Visions of Daniel and St. John, etc. By Samuel Lee, D.D. London, 1851.

"These works of this lamented scholar are quite in the spirit of Calvin’s interpretations. The adherents to Calvin’s views of these prophecies will find much profit from their perusal."

The Events and Times of the
Visions of Daniel and St. John
 
BY SAMUEL LEE, D.D.
(1783-1852)

S.T.P. OF THE UNIVERSITY OF HALLE, MEMBER OF THE ASIATIC SOCIETIES OF ENGLAND AND PARIS, HONORARY MEMBER OF THE HISTORICAL SOCIETY OF RHODE ISLAND, AND OF THE ETHNOLOGICAL SOCIETY OF NEW YORK, AMERICA, LATE REGIUS PROFESSOR OF HEBREW IN THE UNIVERSITY OF CAMBRIDGE, RECTOR OF BARLEY, HERTS, CANON OF BRISTOL &c. &c

PROFESSOR LEE'S FINAL PUBLICATION
1851
 

"These predictions so limited, therefore, were fulfilled to the very letter : and the facts of the case make it utterly impossible they can be fulfilled again."

Against the "Papal Antichrist Theory," while still believing that Roman Catholicism is a "source of religious corruption throughout the whole world."


H.P. Smith (1883) "Preterist. [L. praeteritus, past] 1. One who lives in the past rather than in the present. 2. One who regards the Apocalypse as a series of predictions which have already been fulfilled." (Glossary of Terms and Phrases)

Webster's Dictionary (1913) "2. (Theol.) One who believes the prophecies of the Apocalypse to have been already fulfilled. Farrar."  ( http://www.dictionary.com/cgi-bin/dict.pl?term=preterist)

LEE TEACHES THAT "THE PROPHECIES OF THE APOCALYPSE"
-- AND EVERYWHERE ELSE IN THE BIBLE -- HAVE "ALREADY BEEN FULFILLED"


"BEGINNING OF SORROWS" OF PERSECUTION TERMINATED WITH ROME'S CONVERSION & DOMITIAN IS THE "WILLFUL KING OF DANIEL"

"We are told that a Stone, cut out of the mountain without hands, so struck the Image (of Nebuchadnezzar) on its feet which were of iron and miry clay, that the image was broken in pieces, and so utterly carried away, that not a particle of it remained : that then, the stone grew into a great mountain and filled the whole earth.  But is was the feet of the image which the stone so struck and broke.  Taking then the head of the image to symbolize Babylon, the feet must of necessity symbolize heathen Rome in its last times.  [B]oth the legs and feet together represent this fourth Empire : the feet its latter period."

OTHER KEY EXCEPTS

"We are next told that, then should the People of the Prince who should come, destroy both the city and the sanctuary.  I now know therefore, that, some time after the cutting off of the Messiah, Jerusalem should fall.  But I know when this took place : and, therefore, that it happened within Daniel's seventieth week, as I also do, that this event cannot take place again" (iii)

"As we know of but one great promise made to the Fathers, which the coming of Christ was intended to fulfil, it should follow that, -- as the Bible is necessarily consistent with itself, -- event ministration of the Patriarchs, Prophets, and Apostles, would in one way or other be subservient to its fulfillment : and this again, would have the effect of exhibiting in the Scriptures one plain, consistent and invariable system : and, accordingly, that how numerous and various soever the modes of expression adopted might be, all would in the main conspire to put forth, declare, and illustrate, the particulars of this one great events. (xiv.)

"According to (I Peter 1:12), the Prophet ministered to nothing beyond Apostolical Christianity.  They do not seem -- i.e. as explained to us by the Apostles -- to have had any idea whatever of a future restoration of Jews, Christian Millennium, new Dispensation,  personal reign of Christ on earth,  or of any think of the kind." (xv)

  • : LeRoy E. Froom (1946) "The projection of the Preterist view into the discussion in 1830, by Samuel Lee (1783-1852) - noted Orientalist and professor of Arabic and of Hebrew at Cambridge [One of the most profound linguists of his time and 'master of 18 languages,' he held various churchly posts and was author of numerous books], and rector of Barley, Hertfordshire (later canon of Bristol) -- brought the three post-Reformation schools of interpretation again into definite conflict -- the Historicist, Futurist, and Preterist.  Preterism had become well-nigh dominant in the rationalistic universities of Germany.  And now the noted linguist, Lee, under whom Wolff studied at Cambridge, espoused it.  His Events and Times of the Visions of Daniel and St. John, first published in 1830 (in seminal form only, TD), is strictly Preterist; that is, all the specifications of Daniel and the Apocalypse were allegedly fulfilled in the downfall of pagan Rome and the overthrow of Jewry.

"A general resume must suffice: Lee builds nearly everything around the seventy weeks of Daniel 9, not as a definite chronological term but as an indefinite period.  He makes the three and a half times of Daniel 7 coincident with the last of Daniel's seventy mystical weeks, and comprehends within it the two catastrophes - first the fall of Jerusalem and the reprobate Jewish nation, and then the heathen Roman as God's instrument for desolating Jerusalem.  So the three and a half times is the last half of Daniel's seventieth week. [1851 ed., pp. 69,70]

"In the Apocalypse the seals, trumpets, and vials are synchronous, according to Lee, and are compassed in this elastic seventieth week - the fourth seal referring to Jerusalem's fall in the middle of the week, the fifth to the pagan persecutions.   The trumpets likewise depict the fall of the Jews.  The witnesses testify in the first three and a half days of the seventieth week, and are assailed in the latter three and a half days by the heathen Roman power, the beast from the abyss.  Christ is the child of the church of Revelation 12, and the persecution of the beast of Revelation 13 is under heathen Rome, from Domitian to Diocletian inclusive.

"Thus the devil is loosed for a little season, Lee holds, as is depicted by the sixth trumpet - the hour, day , month, and year being the same as the three and a half times.  Finally, the compassing of the beloved city and the destruction of Satan and his hosts signify the fall of the pagan Roman power with the apocalyptic new heavens and earth, the Christian church after Constantine.  So the 1,000 years constitute "the apostolic period."  Such was Lee's strange and yet familiar Preterist view of prophecy, which was as yet shared by relatively few in Britain."  (Prophetic Faith of our Fathers Vol. 3, p. 596-597)

The Bible speaks, essentially, of two worlds:
the first was the world of Israel and the Jew, which terminated in the first century AD.
The Old Testament saints were resurrected around AD70.
The New Tesament saints were raptured at that general time.
The souls of the New Testament saints are in heaven, in the New Jerusalem, judging the twelve tribes od Old Testament saints, whose souls are also in heaven.
The "Millennium" is not an exact 1000 years, but some unspecified multiple of 1000 years.

It began in the first century AD, and no one knows when it will end.

The first century Jews who had called on the name of Jesus had to endure to the end to be saved, meaning that if the endured to the end (of the Jewish era) their salvation was made sure. This also applies to the seven churches which had to overcome.

We Gentiles, and the Gentile Church, will continue to the end of our world.

There are no Jews in the world today. God had concluded all Israel in unbelief.

"Jews" are no longer blinded.

"Jews" are no longer guilty of crucifying Christ.

Anyone who seriously claims to be a Jew placed himself under the Law, which, after Christ is a curse. (tht may explain why the "Jews" have had such a miserabl time in the world the past 2000 years.
