The Living Body Show – Exposing Sam Frost's "Exegesis" of Matt. 16:27-28 & Rev. 5 – Christ "Coming" in AD 30 or AD 66 – 70?

Sam Frost continues to try and convince people that he is some kind of eschatological expert in refuting Full Preterism and yet as this show demonstrates (and articles here on this site) he cannot deal with the basic fundamental Full Preterist exegetical arguments of Matt. 16:27-28 let alone how John Calvin and the Reformed Church understands such passages as Matt.…

Sullivan In part one of this refutation we examined Sam Frost’s inability to even cite or mention let alone  interact at all with passages that reformed theologians (along with Full Preterists) consider parallel passages or same time…

Exposing Sam Frost’s Sloppy “Exegesis” of Matthew 16:27-28 Part 1 – The Use of Similar Identical or Parallel Language Within Matthew and the NT Michael J. Sullivan Introduction Partial Preterist Sam Frost has attempted to deal with one passage of what theologians have termed as “the big three” (Matt. 10:17-23; Matt. 16:27-28; Matt. 24:27-34) which addresses the question, “Did Jesus…

The Living Body Show 11/19/12 – Revelation 20:8-15 & Challenge To Debate Sam Frost or Gary DeMar at the RCM Conference

Does the orthodox view of Partial Preterism in interpreting Matthew 16:27-28; 24:30–25:31-46 help interpret Revelation 20:5-15?  How does the classic orthodox Amillennial view interpret Revelation 1-19, 21-22 in light of Revelation 20:5-15?  How does the classic Amillennial view interpret Matt. 16:27 and 24:30–25:31-46 in light of Revelation 20:5-15?  Where does Full Preterism fall within these two orthodox views?  Should Full…

The Contradictions Among Dr. Talbot's Disciples and the "Scholarly Consensus" of Daniel 12:1-13/Matthew 13:39-43

No one can deny that Full Preterism is the organic development (“Reformed and always reforming”) of the reformed orthodox church as it pertains to the time and nature of fulfillment for the judgment and resurrection of Dan. 12:1-4, 7, 13/Matt. 13:39-43 to take place.  These texts would be fulfilled at the end of the “last days” or “end of the…

The Living Body Show 10/22/12 Re: The Criswell Millennial Conf. Review Part 2 Gentry's Inability to Develop Daniel 12:2-3 in the NT

I was disappointed that at the Criswell conference on the millennium of Revelation 20 that Kenneth Gentry did not address the texts and argument/main point to my public question. My question was that since he now believes the resurrection of Daniel 12:2 was fulfilled spiritually, covenantally and corporately in AD 70, he now needs to address HOW (not shouting) the…

The Living Body Show 10/15/12 Re: Criswell Millennial Conf. Review Part 1 G.K. Beale's "Thorny Problem" in Matt. 24-25=1 Thess. 4-5

If it is “orthodox” to believe the following: 1)   The resurrection and glorification of the Church in Daniel 12:2-3 happened in AD 70 – corporately, covenantally and Daniel was raised out of Abraham’s Bosom or Hades into God’s presence at that time and according to Revelation 20 (Partial Preterism). 2)  The end of the age in Matthew 13:39-43 and Matthew…

G.K. Beale and D.A. Carson's "Thorny Problem" In Matthew 24-25/1 Thessalonians 4:15–5:11

G.K. Beale and D.A. Carson’s “Thorny Problem”  In Matthew 24-25/1Thessalonians 4:15—5:11 By Michael J. Sullivan My proposition in this article is to prove that Beale and Carson’s “thorny problem” concerning their contradictory teachings and or associations in their writings of Matthew 24:30-31/1 Thessalonians 4:15-17 over the years is solved with the Full Preterist interpretation of these passages. D.A Carson wrote…
