The "A.D. 70 Doctrine" and the Dating of The New Testament

by Stanley Paher

Among the American churches of the Restoration Movement has appeared of late an interpretation of fulfilled Bible prophecy commonly known as the "A.D. 70 Doctrine". Its adherents teach that: 1) the "second coming" of Christ, 2) the resurrection of the dead, 3) the judgment day, 4) the end of the world, and 5) the coming of Christ's kingdom all were fulfilled in the events pertaining to the Roman Empire's destruction of Jerusalem in the summer of 70 A.D.

by J. R. Bronger Original Air Date: August 22, 1999

Today marks the fourth lesson in which we are endeavoring to expose and refute a doctrine that is so strange that it makes one wonder how it can even be believed. This is the doctrine of Realized Eschatology, or as it has become more commonly known, the AD 70 doctrine.

Realized Eschatology, Part 3 - The poisonous belief

by J. R. Bronger Original Air Date: August 15, 1999

You have joined us for our third lesson exposing and refuting a doctrine that is so bizarre and convoluted as to be discounted as too perverted to even be believed. Yet, there are many sane and intelligent men and women who have accepted the doctrine known as the AD 70 doctrine or Realized Eschatology.

Realized Eschatology, Part 2 - The poisonous belief

by J. R. Bronger Original Air Date: August 8, 1999

Last week we began examining this doctrine that has recently gained popularity with some churches and several brethren. This doctrine is known as the AD 70 doctrine or Realized Eschatology. Like we noted last week, the doctrine is so convoluted as to be almost unbelievable when we first hear of it.

Realized Eschatology, Part 1 - The poisonous belief

by J. R. Bronger Original Air Date: August 1, 1999

Anyone familiar with the writings of the apostle Paul knows that he often warned brethren of coming problems. For example, to the Ephesian elders he said in Acts 20:29–30, “For I know this, that after my departure savage wolves will come in among you, not sparing the flock. Also from among yourselves men will rise up, speaking perverse things, to draw away the disciples after themselves.”

Was A.D.70 The End?

By Melvin D. Curry

Eschatology is the study of Christ's final coming, the resurrection of the dead, the last judgment, and the new heavens and the new earth; some persons believe all these "last things" have already been accomplished. One small group of realized eschatologists have targeted ad 70 as the time of the end when the "last things" occurred.

The Destruction of Jerusalem, Cosmic Conflict

by Ellen G. White, 1983

"The days shall come upon thee, that thine enemies shall cast a trench about thee, and compass thee round, and keep thee in on every side, and shall lay thee even with the ground, and thy children within thee: and they shall not leave in thee one stone upon another: because thou knewest not the time of thy visitation." Luke 19:43, 44.

Progressive Accuracy in Dating of 70 Weeks

Irenaeus alluded to "the sacrifice and the libation" taken away by Antichrist during the "half-week." Tertullian (d. about 240) stated that the 70 weeks were fulfilled by Christ's incarnation and death. However, he started this prophetic period with the first year of Darius, curiously continuing it to Jerusalem's destruction under Titus. He declared the period was sealed by the first advent of Christ at the end of 621/2 weeks.

Justchristians.com: The New Heavens and the New Earth

by David Holder

When the day of God comes, the heavens and earth will be destroyed. "But," the apostle Peter declares, "according to His promise we are looking for new heavens and a new earth, in which righteousness dwells" (2 Peter 3:13). Peter's description of "new heavens and a new earth" is a rich Old Testament allusion. We understand it properly only by turning first to its use in Isaiah 65:17 and 66:22.

Vaduva: An answer to Gromacki

by Virgil Vaduva
While I was researching some books by Thomas Ice, I was pleasantly surprised to find an essay by a teacher from Cedarville University. Immediately after reading the essay, I decided that an answer is needed. While “When the trumpet sounds” was published a few years ago, an answer to Gromacki’s essay is long overdue, and absolutely necessary.
