The Song of Songs

by Jeff Carter
The Revelation given to John is the most widely and contradictorily interpreted book of the New Testament. Commentaries written to explain its mysteries range from the scholarly obtuse to the outrageously fanciful. Revelation’s multiplicity of interpretations can be partially explained by its symbolic language and visionary style. Surprisingly, it is the Song of Songs (Song of Solomon, Canticle of Canticles) from the Old Testament that is equally varied in its interpretations.

An Open Letter to Evangelicals and Other Interested Parties

From Knox Theological Seminary
Recently a number of leaders in the Protestant community of the United States have urged the endorsement of far-reaching and unilateral political commitments to the people and land of Israel in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, citing Holy Scripture as the basis for those commitments. To strengthen their endorsement, several of these leaders have also insisted that they speak on behalf of the seventy million people who constitute the American evangelical community.

Fulfilled Bible Prophesy Radio Program

The Parousia of Caesar and the Parousia of Christ

Understanding the Scriptures in their context is one of the foundations of good exegesis generally and of Preterism in particular. A proper understanding of the apocalyptic writings in the Bible requires a focus specifically on the first century A.D. context of the New Testament writings as well as their roots in the Older Testament.

How Calvinism turned me into a Preterist

by Roderick Edwards
“Stay away from those Preterist Internet sites. Read a good book by a Reformed theologian instead.” That has been the advice from an elder of the church that I attend.

Eusebius' Demonstratio Evangelica

Many anti-preterists, including Tommy Ice, continue to make claims that there isn't a "shred of evidence" for preterism in the early church, and that preterism is a new and recent "error." Eusebius however proves them wrong. In his Proof of the Gospel, he clearly, and unambiguously states that Christ did return at the fall of the Jewish Temple in A.D. 70:

Big Money in Fear and Bad Theology!

The cover story of the July 1st 2002, issue of TIME magazine was, “The Bible and the Apocalypse: Why more Americans are reading about the end of the world.” Back in the early 1970’s, prophecy author Hal Lindsey predicted the “Return of Christ” would occur in 1988, since that was forty years from the time the modern state of Israel came into existence. Hal Lindsey was wrong, but that has not stopped him from writing many more prophecy books and it has not stopped Christians and non-Christians from buying his books.

End Times Controversy Forum

Due to some demand, we have created a new forum for the discussion of the new Ice/LaHaye book, The End Times Controversy. This temporary sub-forum can be found by going to the Forums link at the top of the page, then Preterism, then End Times Controversy. Please try to stay on topic as organizing discussions by topic and categories helps every user.

Living in the New Dispensation

By Harvey Cox

A few years ago a friend advised me that if I wanted to know what was going on in the real world, I should read the business pages. Although my lifelong interest has been in the study of religion, I am always willing to expand my horizons; so I took the advice, vaguely fearful that I would have to cope with a new and baffling vocabulary. Instead I was surprised to discover that most of the concepts I ran across were quite familiar.
