"If the foregoing theory seems to make no sense at all, it is because the novice does not understand how these common biblical terns have been redefined to fit the King theory. The 'second coming' does not denote a Literal return of Christ in the future, but a spiritual, invisible coming in A.D. 70.'Resurrection' hasn't anything to do with the human body; rather, it refers to a resurrection of the Christian system from the persecution inflicted by the Jews between A.D. 30 and 70. The 'judgment day' is not a time when all men will give account to God, it is the destruction of Judaism. And the 'end of the world' is not the passing of the earth; it supposedly is a reference to the dissolution of the Jewish world" (Wayne Jackson, The A.D. 70 Theory, pp.)
"So brethren, the whole A.D. 70/King scenario is false. Christ did not effect His second coming in A.D. 70; the dead were not raised in A.D. 70; the judgment day did not occur with the destruction of Jerusalem; and the world did not end in A.D. 70. The entire theory of "realized eschatology" is false from start to finish."
"We deeply grieve that good brethren have been caught up in this foolish movement. It has produced much harm and no good. It is unsettling and divisive. The situation is, however, a commentary upon the extremes to which some will go in an attempt to make a name in history. It is further an example of how ill-informed many members of the church actually are; they are ripe for the picking. The words of the ancient prophet are applicable even today -- "My people are destroyed for a lack of knowledge." (The A.D. 70 Theory, A Review of the Max King Doctrine, Jackson, Wayne, Courier Publications, Stockton, CA, 1990, p.82)
