What the Early Church Father believed about the 2nd Coming. Their words.

early preterists

The viewpoint that Jesus’ ‘Second Coming’ was experienced in 70 a.d. is one that is rapidly gaining exposure and positive consideration in the Church.  However, opponents to this orthodox doctrine insist that preterism is a new belief and labeled heretical by modern leaders in the Church who might just have something to lose by allowing this to influence their parishioners.  Whatever the motive behind their resistance, here are 27 pages of quotes by early Christians that expressed their belief that the Destruction of Jerusalem in 70 a.d. was actually the ‘Second Coming’ of the Savior.  If you are so inclined to study and make up your own mind, feel free to download and print the following and read over them.  It’s hard to deny that this popular stance has been around since the Church began.  But why haven’t you ever heard of it?  Well, if you want to know more, send me a message and we can start a dialog and I will be glad to answer your questions.

I pulled this information together with the help of Riley O’Brien, the Preterist Archive website, numerous books I own and other great resources.
