  1. I see you are contrasting your preterist view with the Futurist view, mainly Dispensationalism. I imagine that would be your larger target audience; but I’m wondering about the hermeneutic used by the Protestant Reformation Father’s. Which was not Futurist or Presterist (both invented in the late 16th early 17th century by Spanish Jesuits, Alonzo Alcazar and Francisco Ribera). I’ve studied Matthew 24 for the nearly the last 50 years as a duel prophecy and have books and references that take this same understanding back to the middle of the 19th century before dispensational teaching, which began circa 1830, had any significant hold in England, let alone the United States. Granted, the question by Jesus’ disciples were not about a heavenly second coming. They really didn’t know (or believe) He was going. But rather, questions about Him coming into his own and taking his seat on the throne of the renewed Davidic Dynasty. Questions about the coming in of the Messianic Age.
