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.
The crux of today's Scripture has been covered in a previous blog post. In that post I leaned on the Orthodox viewpoint of Kenneth Gentry. I'll enjoy here from Mr Preston on this issue as well.
@2:00: This argument is very popular. And every preterist will eventually hear this argument. But as Mr Preston says, this really has been reconstructed by futurist into a poor attack on preterism.
@4:52: I don't really have anything to add before this. The whole discussion leading up is purely recounting the Bible. I know Mr Preston thinks there is no debating on when Christ's blood was brought against Israel. But I know many who have never thought this way about the destruction of Jerusalem. This strikes me as incredible since Christ is so clear in the gospels (Matt 23:29-36).
@6:28: I'm watching and interacting with this video on a Tuesday. My weekend is far away. Not cool.
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.
