God’s covenant transactions with Abraham and God’s dispensation toward the church for some ages following was such that it required a present intermixture of the promises….spiritual blessings in the shade of temporal, and of a spiritual seed in a natural.

Overall, the book was written towards individuals with some college level reading experience with the grammatical and writing structure consistent with academic writings from the 19th century.

Wright’s studies open up new vistas of understanding and inquiry into the nature of Christ’s mission and the people he founded, and that can only be welcome to those studying Realized Eschatology. Continue reading “Kent Ross: A Preterist Reviews The Resurrection of the Son of God by N. T. Wright (2004)”
The book we have under review is entitled, “The End of All Things”, and it’s author is C. Jonathin Seraiah. For a book that espouses the still-yet-future-to-us Second Coming (for Seraiah, that would be a “third coming”), the title of his book is an unfortunate choice for him to make. Continue reading “Kelly Birks: The Potency of a Proper Placing of the Parousia (2002)”
This commentary is not to be understood as an attack against Mr. Stevens himself, but rather it should be seen as an attempt to understand how he arrived at his conclusions according to his own public teaching on the subject, and in doing so, to demonstrate the fallibility of the position as he has enunciated it by our study of the scripture in order to discover what the Bible really says on the subject. Continue reading “Kelly Birks: A Response to ‘Silence Demands a Rapture’ (2002)”
While there are a few important variations among preterists, here the most significant variation exists between what Sproul calls “radical” and “moderate” preterism. Continue reading “Rick Quinn: Book Review – R. C. Sproul, The Last Days According to Jesus (2000)”
Otto theorizes that Christ’s resurrection body is capable of assuming a material substance, when necessary, approximating his pre-resurrection state, so that he can interact at the material level. Continue reading “Barry Hofstetter: Coming in the Clouds: An Evangelical Case for the Invisibility of Christ at His Second Coming (1997)”
I agree with Hank on all the essential salvation doctrines of the Christian Faith, including the fundamental teachings about the future physical return of Christ, and the bodily resurrection of all men and the final judgment. So, the intramural debate on the millennium and tribulation is not one of the great essentials of the Faith. Continue reading “Norman Geisler: A Review of Hank Hanegraaff, The Apocalypse Code (2010)”
John wrote Revelation before A.D. 70; “The hour of testing” (Rev 3:10) occurred immediately after the death of Nero; The Emperor Titus was one of the horsemen of the Apocalypse; The seal and trumpet judgments were fulfilled in the first century Roman-Judean war; The Roman Emperor Nero was the beast of Revelation 13; Nero’s name was used in calculation of the number of the beast, 666
Gentry and DeMar need to explain why Dispensationalists are wrong to claim that Matthew 24:30 and other such passages are talking about a future Second Coming, but the creeds and confessions are right to talk about a future Second Coming using those same texts.

Mauro’s introduction is rather long, but it is well done simply because it sets the tone. It becomes clear immediately that he is going to pull no punches at all with respect to his view of Dispensationalism, and how he believe it stacks up with respect to Scripture. It is also in the introduction that I notice what I believe to be Mauro’s first real mistake. Continue reading “Review of Philip Mauro’s “The Gospel of the Kingdom” (2010)”
I can never read the New Testament again the same way I read it before reading The Parousia. I hope better scholars than I will continue to analyze and evaluate the content of J. Stuart Russell’s important work.
Gentry claims to provide “a brief introduction, summary, and critique of the system.” This is something that he truly does not do. Nowhere in the book does he lay out in detail the support for the Full Preterist viewpoint Continue reading “Frank Daniels: Days of Future Passed: You Missed It (2016)”
One can only marvel at the hermeneutical duplicity at work here and the way it ravages genre analysis. By means of such a hermeneutic any text could be made to say anything Continue reading “Randall Otto: Jesus the Preterist: a review of R.C. Sproul’s The Last Days According to Jesus (1999)”
