Such turns of a phrase are known elsewhere in Scripture, indicating the personal reception of a promise. Take, for instance, the account of Simeon in Luke 2:25-26 Continue reading “Todd Dennis: Matthew 16:27-28 is NOT a “Preterist Time Indicator” Pointing to AD70″

I think we need to distinguish between full preterism and hyper-preterism. Full preterism is an optimistic eschatology. Don’t think I can say the same thing about hyper-preterism, which has led some right out of Christianity.
