Second, the preterist position rests on a pre-AD 70 date of writing. However, most New Testament scholars date the writing of the book to AD If John had written Revelation after AD 70, the book could not have been a prophecy of the fall of Jerusalem.

This presents a significant argument against the preterist position. Craig Koester’s “Revelation and the End of All Things” (including the accompanying Great Courses lecture series) is also great.

The interpretation of the book of Revelation has often proven difficult throughout the history of the Christian church.
