Matthew 16:27-28 - Don Preston Review #10


27 
For the Son of Man is going to come with his angels in the glory of his Father, and then he will repay each person according to what he has done.
 28 Truly, I say to you, there are some standing here who will not taste death until they see the Son of Man coming in his kingdom.  -  Matthew 16:27-28

Note: Don Preston is a full preterist and therefore his teaching cannot receive full or blind acceptance. His many videos on YouTube are worthy of listening and interacting with in a timeline manner.

@1:38: You'll have to remember that we have already responded to this argument. He projects a little too much onto other eschatological positions. Despite this, his accusation is helpful to sharpen ones understanding and defense of the particular relevance of God's law as expressed in the OT.

@2:35: As we've already demonstrated this is patently false. Even though Christians may not understand how the law has "been retained", a blanket statement that "the law of Moses has been done away" requires some fine tuning of the phrases "law of Moses" and "done away".

@3:04: This point really isn't valid either. It is incorrect and inappropriate to lump the prophets and psalms into the "law of Moses" and assume they can only describe the "Old Covenant" that has "been done away". I am sure Mr Preston is going to provide some stronger arguments but these here will not hold up.

@5:07: Here is a pure logical fallacy. He is entirely correct in assuming these ceremonial things point to first century promises. They are. They point specifically and directly to Christ. And then the whole of Christ and the Apostles point us even further to our participation. Our participation is not a fulfillment of these, only Christ is the fulfillment. And no matter the length of delay in our joining Him, it will simply be using following the "first fruits" (1 Cor 15:22).

Joshua Torrey is the sole proprietor of Torrey Gazette (don't tell Alaina) and the fullness of its editorial process. That means everything wrong with TG can legitimately be blamed on him.
