Exactly when are the ‘Times of the Gentiles’ according to the Part-preterist prophetic viewpoint?

“There will be great distress upon the earth and wrath against this people. They will fall by the edge of the sword and be led captive among all nations, and Jerusalem will be trampled underfoot by the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled.” (Luke 21:23-24)

I am looking for precise start and finish dates. What events mark those dates? Also, a brief summary of the Part-preterist thinking concerning this prophecy would be useful.

    I can’t tell you the preterist view but I can share my opinion. I believe the Times of the Gentiles began in AD 70 with The Siege of Jerusalem and will end at the Return of Christ

      Troy Day I think at the return. I think that Gentiles will continue to inhabit and to a great extent control Jerusalem as they do now until the actual coming of Christ. Even though it seems the Antichrist will make a covenant with the Jewish people which will likely allow the rebuilding of the temple and sacrifices to be made.

      At the return of Christ all of Israel’s foes will be vanquished at the battle of Armageddon.

    It’s irrelevant as Preterism is false doctrine.

      Oscar Valdez actually I quite do 🙂 since I was among the first one to reject it when it was pushed to our Pentecostal tradition. Although Ryrie opposed some of the tenets of progressive dispensationalism, he also advanced in the late 1970s, many years prior to the progressive movement, something very similar to complementary hermeneutics, particularly in his interpretation of the new covenant which he held was one new covenant that had successive (complementary?) applications to different groups of believer

      Oscar Valdez probably not 🙂 The above analysis is a linear time indication. Since the Elder’s time frame differed form the current time frame, this is merely an analysis to distinguish between the different eschatological events. The most obvious order of research would be to follow a linear time approach starting with the ‘now’ and moving towards the ‘not yet’. However, in this article a more sensible approach will be followed. Logically the sequence of discussion will be: the arrival of the ‘last hour’; the revelation of Jesus: parousia and day of judgment; https://www.pentecostaltheology.com/the-already-but-not-yet-rapture-parousia-explained-with-the-greek-nt/

    I’ll tell you what it is. It is an ignorant false teaching put forth by those trying to show just how intelligent they are and others are not. I am with Duane Bagaas – who cares – we need to spend our time learning and then teaching the truth. A simple glace at the preterist nonsense will show how wrong it is.
