My brother was told by his preacher that Jesus returned to earth 70 A.D. I have never heard that. Can you explain?

Hey, this isn't the board for that, I'm going to move you to the Christian Fellowship forum.

It sounds as if his preacher is a preterist- that he believes the whole of the Bible's end-times teaching was fulfilled with the fall of Jerusalem. This is a wide-spread view. Perhaps later I will have time to respond more fully and to tell you why I think this view is incorrect.

Peace, Love, and Jesus Christ,

Jason

I imagine it has something to do with a view of the tribulation that some people hold to. They believe that the Great Tribulation that Revelation speaks of is a past event rather than a future event, and place the Abomination of Desolation (The desecration of the Jewish temple by the anti-christ) to be the destruction of the Temple in 70 A.D. by the Romans. Although I am at a loss to explain why anybody would say that Jesus returned in 70 A.D. as the Abomination of Desolation occurs at the midpoint of the 7 year tribulation and Jesus returns at the end.

For the record, I hold that the Tribulation is a future event and that the Second Coming of Christ will be after that.

Flannel can I be hearing things correctly, that you and Jason have a somewhat major point of doctrinal agreement and that it is one which I agree with also?

I'm not sure. Me greeing with Jason on the End Times could almost be considered a sign of the End Times ;)

We both agree that the guy Tinky is talking about is wrong, I think that's where it ends. ;)

We have a few major doctrinal agreements though, I would say- more than we have disagreements, at least. ;)

Something about this guy named Jesus, and a cross... empty tomb... something like that.

:angel:

Peace, Love, and Jesus Christ,

Haha... I can see the prophecy now... and before Jesus came, there was an agreement between an avenger of fabric, and a psychic ninja moderator...... J/k
