Dr. Mark Hitchcock and Mr. Hank Hanegraaff debate the date of the Book of Revelation. The debate took place on December 10, 2007, at the annual Pre-Trib Study Group meeting in Dallas, TX. Dr. Hichcock will argue for the AD 95 date. Mr. Hanegraaff will argue for the AD 65 date. While the AD 95 date does not impact the futurist interpretive approach of Dr. Hitchcock’s view, Mr. Hanegraaff preterist view requires an AD 65 date or his view of Revelation is rendered impossible. The book is a gift from God to His Church for NOW and those who will endure the Tribulation. (Daniel’s 70th week)
This is a critical issue on the date of the book of Revelation. This will help explain why Popular Preterists like Gary Demar & Hank Hanegraaff fight so hard and are even considering those who can see the road signs all around us starting with Israel. Quite simply we find they cling to their position despite the evidence is daily piling up against them. Now I ask you is that rational.
