In The Universalist and Ladies' Repository, a book published in the 1800s, presents an early opinion on Preterist eschatology: "We give one specimen, from a late publication, of the adoption of our method of interpreting several prophetical passages : — ' Christ's second coming was at, or about the time of the destruction of Jerusalem, A. D., 70. This we can easily prove, for Christ said positively, "verily I say unto you, there be some standing here, which shall not taste of death, till they see the son of man coming in his kingdom" (see Mat. xvi. 28,) the same declaration is recorded by Mark, ix. 1, and by Luke, ix. 27 ; thus there can be no mistake in this testimony, but we will proceed with more : — in Matthew, chap, xxiv, he describes the signs that were to precede his coming, and he told hem, taken they saw these things, that they might know that his coming was near — even at their doors."You can read this section of the book on Google Books at:
