PRETERISM, PRETERIST THEOLOGY AND THE PRETERIST VIEW OF ESCHATOLOGY IS THE CHRISTIAN BELIEF THAT ALL END TIME PROPHECIES HAVE BEEN FULFILLED.
Critics of preterism expose their ignorance of Roman history by their criticisms. These people claim that such and such a prophecy has not occurred–meanwhile Roman historical records say that it has!

NEW: How and Why 2 Peter 1:16-18 Implies that the Transfiguration is a Visionary Type of the Second Coming and How Every Element of the Transfiguration Literally Modeled the Various Manifestations of the First Century Parousia.
The following may seem unbelievable. However, all information is taken from unbiased historical records and is easily verifiable.
There are two types of Preterism: Full Preterism and Partial Preterism
Full Preterism is the belief that all end time prophecies have been fulfilled.
Partial Preterism is the belief that some end time prophecies have been fulfilled. Most Biblical scholars are partial preterists to varying degrees. Though the following commentary will show that all end time prophecies have been fulfilled, this is not evidence against the partial preterist view. Rather, it is evidence of both preterist view points: The events that fulfill all end time prophecies may be types or shadows pointing to the ultimate fulfillment of these predictions again in the distant future.
MOSTLY JUST APOCALYPTIC RHETORIC AND CRYPTIC SYMBOLISM?
HAVE ALL BIBLE END TIME PROPHECIES INCLUDING REVELATION REALLY BEEN FULFILLED IN THE JEWISH WAR?
Christians often assume that there is no historical record that
4) There was a LITERAL 1000 year reign of Christianity in Israel from the Jewish War (A.D. 66-A.D. 74) to the conquest of Israel be the Seljuk Turks (A.D. 1071) and the resulting crusades, the Battle of Gog and Magog (A.D.1095).
However, all four events ARE recorded by Roman historians alongside a multitude of supernatural phenomena that appear to FULFILL ALL BIBLICAL END TIME PROPHECIES DOWN TO THE SMALLEST DETAILS and yet seem to be either entirely unknown to or ignored by Biblical scholars.
Why is Jesus not ruling on earth?
In A.D. 33 day became night, and in A.D. 66 night became day. These two miracles broke the covenant of Jeremiah 33:20-21. Thus the Messiah would not rule physically on David’s throne. Instead, Jesus rules the world from a heavenly throne: “[T]he Most High does not live in houses made by men. . . . ‘Heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool.’” The Messianic kingdom is called the kingdom of heaven in the Gospels because it is centered in heaven. It is here that the saints ultimately experience a blissful, loving existence with Christ after death.
What about the New Jerusalem?
The New Jerusalem is the church. Because it is present in both heaven and earth and because the church is destined for heaven, the church is described in the likeness of the Jerusalem that is in heaven mentioned in Hebrews 12:22 and Galatians 4:26. Testimony from near-death experiences suggests that it exists right now!
OFTEN-IGNORED SECULAR ROMAN HISTORICAL RECORDS REVEAL THAT MANY, MANY MORE END TIME BIBLE PROPHECIES HAVE BEEN LITERALLY FULFILLED THAN WAS PREVIOUSLY SUPPOSED.
THE FOLLOWING BARELY SCRATCHES THE SURFACE OF THIS NEW EVIDENCE:
As shown in the PRETERIST COMMENTARY ON REVELATION below there appear to be NO BIBLE PROPHECIES YET TO BE FULFILLED.
MUCH MORE of the Bible is End Time Prophecy than previously thought.
Just as the custom of the daily sacrifice is now known to be a Messianic prophecy pointing to the sacrificial death of Christ, in the aftermath of the end of the age it is now clear that MUCH MORE of the Bible is end time prophecy than was previously supposed. In addition to providing a preterist interpretation of the fulfillment of Revelation and all other major end time prophecies, the links below will also address the fulfillment of a small sample of these hidden end time Bible verses.
The Preterist View of Eschatology can no longer be criticized on the basis of appealing to empty symbolism:
Though Revelation is undeniably a highly symbolic book, the following commentary on all major end time prophecy below will show that the Book of Revelation is MUCH MORE LITERAL than ever supposed. Not only were the events described in Revelation often fulfilled in a shockingly literally manner, even the preponderance of fantastic symbols in this series of visions were very real images often seen by John’s intended audience.
Apocalyptic prophecies were also fulfilled in Old Testament History much more literally than previously supposed
The following Preterist commentary shows that even the most fantastic apocalyptic predictions were fulfilled in the Jewish War shockingly literally. This fact implies that apocalyptic predictions fulfilled in Old Testament history were also fulfilled in a similarly literal way. The following are the two most frequently cited examples used against interpreting apocalyptic language literally:
How was every mountain lowered and every valley raised? How were the sun, moon and stars darkened?
