Blogging my Book: Does Josephus record when the Son of Man returned?


..I suppose the account of it would seem to be a fable, were it not related by those who saw it, and were not the events that followed it of so considerable a nature as to deserve such signals; for, before sunsetting, chariots and troops of soldiers in their armour were seen running about among the clouds, and surrounding the cities. (Jwr 6:297-299)

You’ll have to read about it in my book.

  1. I have many questions about the eschaton: more now than ever before, I guess. I realize that I don’t have it all figured out. In fact, I have very little understanding of minute details, and many larger issues are not clear to me. I’m simply glad that Jesus is returning as King of kings, and that He will resurrect me and finalize the new creation.

    1. As someone who knows it all, I’ve given up hope on reading a return into much of the older parts of the New Testament. I say, regardless if Jesus returns to earth or Jesus returns to us when we die, we’ll get to see Jesus.

    1. I never said it was wrong. All modern Christian eschatological arguments are wrong. Preterism is trying to fit into the modern box of eschatology when it shouldn’t and thus it is wrong in that regards. Like the others, it fails to take what Scripture says about prophecy seriously and abuses Revelation to fit their needed model. Yes, Revelation is about the destruction of the Temple. No, it was not written before the destruction of the Temple. No, prophecy is not about years and years in the future. Prophecy is about what is going on right now (of then, as is the case).

      That’s why modern eschatology fails, because it doesn’t take Scripture seriously and instead abuses it to suggest that Scripture is being written for them. You know, in 100, in 400, in 1000, in 1500, in the 1940’s, 50’s, 60’s, 70’s, 80’s, and etc… and etc… All modern views of prophecy, if they view eschatology as pointing to them or past them, is flat out wrong and a terrible abuse of Scripture.
