If you need to know what assumptions Preterism uses to make their case, start with the things they say ended or began in 70AD. Then ask them to give you one verse that says it happened!!!! If they can not, then understand that 70AD is NOT the true focal point.
Assumptions as a result of 70AD BASED on this Chart.
1.) The Millennium Ends
2.) The Resurrection Ends
3.) Judgment ends
4.) All men are restored to the Presence of God, since that which was lost has now been restored.
5.) Satan is cast into the lake of fire, Satan Crushed.
6.) Hadean death (separation from God's fellowship and presence) removed.
6.) Eternal Life given to ALL in the New Heavens and Earth (a post 70AD period?).
7.) The "present age" ended. Those surviving 70AD were found worthy?
8.) "all in all" .. healing of nations in 70AD
9.) Temple typology COMPLETELY fulfilled. i.e. NO reference to today. COMPLETELY fulfilled. 10.) "Jerusalem Destroyed" = "Presence of God Restored" ? ? ?"
