The "Last Days"

Russell on the Last Days I | Russell on Last Days II | Maurice on the "Last Time"
 

Dr. Stafford North (1998)
"To put these last verses in context, we recall that Christ is speaking of the end or destruction which would befall the beautiful temple and the city of Jerusalem.. All these things will take place along with the spread of the gospel into all nations, but these are not signs by which you can identify the exact time of the fall of Jerusalem." (Armageddon Again? A Reply to Hal Lindsey, Oklahoma City, OK: Author, 1991, p. 7-10)

 

David Chilton (1985)
"The period spoken of in the Bible as 'the last days' (or 'last times' or 'last hour') is the period between Christ's birth and the destruction of Jerusalem." (Paradise Restored, p. 115)

Gary DeMar (1999)
"These commentators understood that all the events prior to Matthew 24:34 referred to events leading up to and including the destruction of Jerusalem in A.D.70." (Is Jesus Coming Soon? Powder Springs, GA: American Vision, 1999, p. 17)

"Beginning with the book of Acts, we see that famines were prevalent in the period prior to Jerusalem's destruction in A.D.70.. Contemporary secular historians such as Tacitus, Suetonius, and Josephus mention other famines during the period prior to A.D.70." (Last Days Madness: Obsession of the Modern Church, 4th ed., Atlanta, GA: American Vision, 1999, p.79)

Kenneth Gentry
"In A.D.70 the 'last days' ended with the dissolution of the temple and the sacrificial system." (ibid., p. 38)

"The last days spoken of in the New Testament were eschatological last days only for national Israel, not for the New Covenant church. The "last days" were in fact the early days of the church of Jesus Christ." (Beast of Revelation, xiv)

 

Preterist Commentaries

Dr. Louis Berkhof (1933)
"Pentecost marked the beginning of the last days, that is, of the last dispensation.. Clearly the earliest Christians believed that they were living in the last days.

Are we living in the last days? In light of the teaching of the apostles, the question must be answered with an unequivocal  yes, for the last days have been upon us since the advent of Jesus the Messiah almost two millennia ago!" (Manual of Christian Doctrine, (Grand Rapids, MI: Wm. B. Erdmans Publishing Company, [1933] 1995, p. 346)

Dr. Everett Ferguson (1996)
"Early Christians expressed the conviction that they were living in the 'last days' and therefore that the church was the eschatological community."  (The Church of Christ: A Biblical Ecclesiology for Today; Eerdmans; p. 67-68)

Richard Kyle (1998)
"The last days began in Jesus' days, not when Israel became a nation in 1948." (The Last Days Are Here Again: A History of the End Times (Grand Rapids, MI:Baker Books 1998, p. 50)

Daniel L. Lewis (1998)
"Without question, the New Testament writers concluded that the last days began with the Jesus event." (3 Crucial Questions about the Last Days (Grand Rapids, MI: Wm. Erdmans Publishing Company, [1933] 1995, p. 346)

Dr. James W. Thompson (1971)
"Mark 13 has long been an enigmatic text for exegetes.  It stands in Mark as the final discourse of Jesus, in which the small circle of disciples (13:1) are to come to understand their situation in the end time.  The final discourse contains both warnings and apocalyptic features, indicating that the disciples are to understand their existence  as part of the last days" ("The Gentile Mission as an Eschatological Necessity," Restoration Quarterly 14, p. 20)
