A Response to Preterism’s Failed Prophecy of False Messianic Claimants in AD 70ish (Matthew 24:23-25)

“Then if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the messiah!’ or ‘There he is!’ do not believe it. 24 For false messiahs and false prophets will arise and perform great signs and wonders, so as to lead astray, if possible, even the elect. 25 See, I have told you beforehand. 26 So, if they […]

Debate on the Date of the Book of Revelation – Mark Hitchcock vs Hank Hanegraaff

Dr. Mark Hitchcock and Mr. Hank Hanegraaff debate the date of the Book of Revelation. The debate took place on December 10, 2007 at the annual Pre-Trib Study Group meeting in Dallas, TX. Dr. Hichcock will argue for the AD 95 date. Mr. Hanegraaff will argue for the AD 65 date. While the AD 95 […]

Keith Mathison’s Preterist Hermeneutic and Flawed Presuppositions

I have always believed that hyper-preterism (which is heresy because they deny the future resurrection) is more consistent than partial-preterism, albeit they are consistently wrong. (It goes without saying that I believe futurism is the only feasible, consistent interpretation of Jesus, Paul, and the book of Revelation.) It is not surprising to see a hyper-preterist […]

Michael Brown Versus Don Preston – Debate on “Future Israel,” June 3

http://donkpreston.com/exciting-announcement-major-internet-debate-coming-up/ (hat tip: Joel Richardson) Don Preston is not your typical preterist. He is a hyper-preterist, believing that the resurrection has already taken place. But the debate is on future Israel: Will there be a future reconstituted Israel or not? James White will be moderator. At first I was concerned that there would not be […]

Preterism’s Literalistic Interpretation of Jesus is Coming “Soon” (En Tachei)

“The revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave him to show to his servants the things that must soon [en tachei] take place.” (Rev 1:1) Gary DeMar and other preterist interpreters inveigh against futurists for being “literalistic” in their interpretations. Yet, I actually find many of their interpretations literalistic, as in this case, interpreting “soon” […]

A Futurist Interpretation of Daniel 8 and 11

Recently, I have been disenchanted with the standard preterist (and virtually only) interpretation of Daniel 8 and 11, that it has already been fulfilled in Antiochus, or as some argue that it is “already-not yet.” Instead, I think a futurist interpretation of these chapters is beginning to make a whole lot of sense. In my reflection […]

Luke 21:20-24 — Fulfilled or Future? (Part 2)


A Response to the Preterist Interpretation of “This Generation” in Matthew 24:34

“Truly, I say to you, this generation will not pass away until all these things take place.” —Matt 24:34 This is the go-to proof text for preterists. It is the holy grail of preterism. It is the first and last thing that comes out of their mouths when you talk to them about the Olivet […]
