How did 2000 years of Biblical tradition, knowledge, and scholarship get it wrong?

I must ask this question immediately after coming to grips with a view of Scripture I have never held before, namely, preterist.

I am currently investigating for myself the claims of such learned men as Don Preston, William Bell, and others on this view. It is worth looking into.

More to come...

Q. When does a website become a favorite?

A. When one spends precious many minutes listening to podcast after short, sweet, hard-to-beat podcast, a broadcaster is sure to have entered the inner sanctum of the human heart and won some measure of closely-held confidence.

Quiz over. You win. is the latest addition to my "Favorites" list of web sites on this blog. I woke up early today and found a new podcaster that piques my interest in things socio-political, economic, and/or religious (Biblical). "The Best-Read Libertarian Website in the World," is not your average website of this sort. Check it out.

My last favorite entry was, which you may find in a previous post.

The nice thing about blogging is you can post something you believe in, even if it's brand new to you (and perhaps your readers). In this case, it's preterism. is the site for Preterist Radio Podcasts, which I have just recently begun listening to. A.D. 70 is the year Jerusalem was destroyed after a three-and-a-half year war with the Roman army.

It was such an unprecedented kind of destruction and suffering inflicted on anyone at any time on such a large scale, that the Roman army consigned one of their captives, a Jewish general named Yosef Ben Matityahu (later Titus Flavius Josephus, to chronicle the awful situation. So we have The Jewish War as a record of the "end of the world."(Matthew 28:20)

The Greek word translated "world" in the KJV is actually aion or "age." Other translations, such as the NIV, translate it that way. This is why it is good to consult other Bible versions and the original languages.
