This broadcast is a discussion of Biblical Hermeneutics and its application in the study of eschatology, particularly Dominionism.
Two main focal points of hermeneutics are eisegesis (to lead into) and exegesis (to lead out). The former means to read ideas into the text. The latter means to draw deductions from what is in the text so the reader understands the meaning of what the author is saying. The value and importance of proper "exegesis" or interpreting the Scriptures cannot be overestimated in the study of Biblical eschatology. In this broadcast, Don critiques the hermeneutic of Dominionists such as Gary Demar, Kenneth Gentry, and others. He directs your attention to Demar's uses of 1 Thessalonians to demonstrate it refers to the coming of Christ using various terms in the text. Don shows that all the constituent elements Demar uses for 1 Thessalonians 4 are found in Matthew 24. More references can be found in his book, We Shall Meet Him In The Air" The Wedding of the King of kings."
The late David Chilton, author of "Days of Vengeance" and "Paradise Restored" spoke on the 1997 Covenant Eschatology Seminar in Oklahoma City along with Don Preston, Larry Siegle, Jack Scott, William Bell and Max King. He related how inconsistent the partial preterist hermeneutic currently held by Dominionism today is and related this as the sole reason he abandoned Dominionism for full Preterism.
