Preterist Papers logo

Our Purpose

The purpose of this website is to provide students of the Bible a quick and easy reference to the historical and scriptural evidence for Fulfilled Eschatology—also known as  Preterism, Realized Eschatology, and Covenant Eschatology. Papers #1 and #2 are foundational for this understanding.   


In 1960, the great Christian apologist, C. S. Lewis, wrote that Mark 13:30 “is certainly the most embarrassing verse in the Bible” where Jesus said, “Truly, I say to you, this generation will not pass away before all these things take place.”   Sadly, instead of questioning the futurist tradition of the church regarding the second coming, he believed Jesus was in error.  He would have been on much more sensible ground to become cognizant of the futurist glasses he was wearing, gifted to him by the “traditions of men.”  To say Jesus “got it wrong” leaves us with nothing but a flawed savior and unreliable book.

When the New Testament is read in its historical context of the very near destruction of Jerusalem and the Old Covenant, the apocalyptic passages are no longer “embarrassing” but wonderfully and precisely fulfilled.  The following papers uphold the veracity of scripture and place us in awe and wonder regarding this LORD who declares the end from the beginning.
