AD70 Dispensationalism: According to that view, AD70 was the end of 'this age' and the start of the 'age to come'.    Those who lived before AD70 could only 'see in part' and such, lacking the resurrection and redemptive blessings which supposedly came only when Herod's Temple in Jerusalem fell.    Accordingly, AD70 was not only the end of Old Testament Judaism, but it was also the end of the revelation of Christianity as seen in the New Testament.

HYPER PRETERISM

"Full preterist" material is being archived for balanced representation of all preterist views, but is classified under the theological term hyper (as in beyond the acceptable range of tolerable doctrines) at this website.  The classification of all full preterism as Hyper Preterism (HyP) is built upon well over a decade of intense research at PreteristArchive.com, and the convictions of the website curator (a former full preterist pastor).  The HyP theology of final resurrection and consummation in the fall of Jerusalem, with its dispensational line in AD70 (end of old age, start of new age), has never been known among authors through nearly 20 centuries of Christianity leading up to 1845, when the earliest known full preterist book was written.  Even though there may be many secondary points of agreement between Historical/Modern Preterism and Hyper Preterism, their premises are undeniably and fundamentally different.

SOME DISTINCTIVE DOCTRINES OF SYSTEMATIZED HYPER PRETERISM

It is important to keep in mind that many ideas and doctrines full preterism appeals to - such as the complete end of the Old Covenant world in AD70 - are by no means distinctive to that view.   Many non HyPs believe this as well, so one need not embrace the Hyper Preterist system in order to endorse this view.   Following are exceptional doctrines which, so far as I've seen, are only taught by adherents of Hyper Preterism.:

DISTINCTIVE DOCTRINES TAUGHT BY STANDARD FULL PRETERISM

  • All Bible Prophecy was Fulfilled By AD70

  • Atonement Incomplete at Cross ; Complete at AD70

  • The Supernatural Power of Evil Ended in AD70

  • The Spirit of Antichrist was Destroyed in AD70

  • "The Consummation of the Ages" Came in AD70

  • "The Millennium" is in the Past, From AD30 to AD70

  • Nothing to be Resurrected From in Post AD70 World ; Hades Destroyed

  • The Christian Age Began in AD70 ; Earth Will Never End

  • "The Day of the Lord" was Israel's Destruction ending in AD70

  • The "Second Coming" of Jesus Christ Took Place in AD70-ish

  • The Great Judgment took place in AD70 ; No Future Judgment

  • The Law, Death, Sin, Devil, Hades, etc. Utterly Defeated in AD70

  • "The Resurrection" of the Dead and Living is Past, Having Taken Place in AD70

  • The Context of the Entire Bible is Pre-AD70 ; Not Written To Post AD70 World

DISTINCTIVE DOCTRINES TAUGHT BY VARIOUS FORMS
(under construction)

  • Baptism was for Pre-AD70 Era (Cessationism)

  • The Lord's Prayer was for Pre-AD70 Era (Cessationism)

  • The Lord's Supper was for Pre-AD70 Era (Cessationism)

  • The Holy Spirit's Paraclete Work Ceased in AD70 (Cessationism)

  • The Consummation in AD70 Caused Church Offices to Cease (Cessationism)

  • The Resurrection in AD70 Changed the "Constitutional Principle" of Marriage (Noyesism)

  • Israel and Humanity Delivered into Ultimate Liberty in AD70 (TransmillennialismTM)

  • The Judgment in AD70 Reconciled All of Mankind to God ; All Saved (Preterist Universalism)

  • Adam's Sin No Longer Imputed in Post AD70 World ; No Need to be Born Again (Preterist Universalism)

  • When Jesus Delivered the Kingdom to the Father in AD70, He Ceased Being The Intermediary (Pantelism/Comprehensive Grace?)

  • The Book of Genesis is an Apocalypse; is About Creation of First Covenant Man, not First Historical Man (Covenantal Preterism)

 

When All Things That are Written Must Be Fulfilled

By Don K. Preston

[Note: This article is for arminians or premillennialists, primarily.  Calvinists  tend to understand better how "all things" is used in Scripture: John 19:28.30 "After this, Jesus knowing that all things were now accomplished, that the scripture might be fulfilled, saith, I thirst. When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost. ]


       D
o you realize Jesus said when all prophecy would be fulfilled? Read Luke 21:22.

     Here is the context. Jesus was predicting the fall of Jerusalem, see verses 5-7. In describing that event he said "all things that are written must be fulfilled."  Here are some interesting facts.

     The premillennialist says the only part of the Olivet Discourse, [that is Matthew 24 and the parallels, Mark 13, Luke 21], that applies to the destruction of Jerusalem is Luke 21:20-24. They insist the rest speaks of our time, the Great Tribulation, Israel's restoration, etc. There is a problem here!

     When it is admitted that Luke 21:22 speaks of the destruction of Jerusalem and that generation, Luke 21:32, you are thereby admitting there are no further prophecies to be fulfilled! Jesus said in those days of Israel's fall "ALL THINGS THAT ARE WRITTEN MUST BE FULFILLED." Reader, how many prophecies are left out of that "all?" Did Jesus say all prophecies "except" a few would be fulfilled at that time? Jesus' words here should make us rethink our concepts of prophecy and the "last things."

     The trouble is we are so used to thinking in literalistic ways when we read about the "end times," "end of the age," etc. we fail to discover the true Biblical meaning of these ideas. The "time of the end" for instance is not "the end of time." [Actually, that term is not in any proper translation of the Bible.] Biblically, "the time of the end" when all prophecy would be fulfilled, was the end of Israel's Old Age and the full establishment of the New World of Messiah's Age. This is what Daniel's 70 weeks is all about for instance and corresponds perfectly with what Jesus said about when all prophecy would be fulfilled. That is the "end of the age" the disciples asked about in Matthew 24:3.

     When we mistakenly believe the Bible is concerned about the "end of time" instead of the "time of the end" we cannot allow Jesus' words in Luke 21:22 to speak for themselves. When we put aside our preconceived ideas, and allow the Bible to tell us WHEN things were to occur we come closer to Truth.

     Luke 21:22 is not the only verse that tells us when all prophecy was to be fulfilled--and they all agree with Jesus in Luke 21:22.

[TD: Not quite - John 19:28.30 "After this, Jesus knowing that all things were now accomplished, that the scripture might be fulfilled, saith, I thirst. When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.]

The only things not fulfilled in AD70 were all the other things fulfilled at other times, such as the fall of the Old Testament nations, the first destruction of Jerusalem, sacrifice of Christ, etc., etc.  Your argument: FAIL

The Time of The End
In Daniel 12:4, Daniel was told to "seal the book" until the time of the end. No one would be able to understand Daniel until the time of the end.

The Lord Jesus Christ quoted from Daniel in Matthew
24:15, and invited anyone else to read it and understand it.

This is literal proof that Chriat came to earth at the time of the end.
