Preterist dating the book of revelation

I have occasionally wondered why scholars lean toward a late date for John’s Revelation.Now I have a thoroughly researched book to help me vie for an early date."Rev. in Mathematics from the University of Illinois (Chicago), he taught high school in Illinois until his recent retirement.

Conventional understanding until recently was that Revelation was written to comfort beleaguered Christians as they underwent persecution at the hands of a megalomaniacal Roman emperor, but much of this has now been jettisoned: Domitian is no longer viewed as a despot imposing an imperial cult, and it is no longer believed that there was any systematic empire-wide persecution of Christians in his time.

His early date conclusion framed within a partial preterist and amillennial perspective is very well presented.This is an important consideration for anyone who would study Revelation, for how one resolves this question necessarily impacts the meaning of Revelation.” Kenneth L. His meticulous research, sane interpretations, irenic spirit, and love for God and His truth lead the reader on an exciting journey to discover the date of the book of Revelation, with all of its interpretive implications.He very frequently combines multiple references, and again the allusional style makes it impossible to be certain to what extent he did so consciously.According to several studies including a review by Dr James Tabor and Dr J.
