The criteria by which the identification of "scholar" and "scholarship" is made relates to peer review and acceptance more than to a particular level of scholastic achievement.

ADVOCATES FOR THE EARLY
DATE OF REVELATION
(PRIOR TO THE 20TH CENTURY)
"A partial list of scholars who have supported the early date for Revelation, gleaned unsystematically from my reading, would include the following 18th and 19th writers not already mentioned just above: John Lightfoot, Harenbert, Hartwig, Michaelis, Tholuck, Clarke, Bishop Newton, James MacDonald, Gieseler, Tilloch, Bause, Zullig, Swegler, De Wette, Lucke, Bohmer, Hilgenfeld, Mommsen, Ewald, Neander, Volkmar, Renan, Credner, Kernkel, B. Weiss, Reuss, Thiersch, Bunsen, Stier, Auberlen, Maurice, Niermeyer, Desprez, Aube, Keim, De Pressence, Cowles, Scholten, Beck, Dusterdiek, Simcox, S. Davidson, Beyschlag, Salmon, Hausrath. Continuing on into the 20th century we could list Plummer, Selwyn, J.V. Bartlet, C.A. Scott, Erbes, Edmundson, Henderson, and others. If one's reading has been limited pretty much to the present and immediately preceding generations of writers on Revelation, then the foregoing names may be somewhat unfamiliar to him, but they were not unrecognized in previous eras. When we combine these names with the yet outstanding stature of Schaff, Terry, Lightfoot, Westcott, and Hort, we can feel the severity of Beckwith's understatement when in 1919 he described the Neronian dating for Revelation as "a view held by many down to recent times."

I think the word "parousia" could never indicate a quick trip to somewhere and then a rapid exit! It means, rather, a triumphal appearance and an intention to remain. How long a stay is immaterial. Aside from usage with inanimate objects its thrust always intimates that the "appearer" will come with a purpose and remain until that purpose is accomplished. If this can be demonstrated to be the correct function of "parousia" it tolls the death knell on the entire preterite notion of some sort of quickee exit for the saints of 70A.D.

I believe that all three views should be combined into ONE BIBLICAL VIEW because Revelation covers past,present and future. There are events that have been fulfilled, some presently taking place and others stil to take place. Why not call the final view THE BIBLICAL VIEW?
