‘My Eusebius’

Preliminary Disserations on Eusebius, Bishop of Caesarea, on the Theophania

EVER since his translation of Eusebius’s ‘Theophania,’ my father’s mind had been more or less occupied on the subject of Prophecy, and he became convinced that the views which he entertained, known as the Preterist, were those held by the early Church. The subject was one of absorbing interest to him during the few last years of his life, and as a child I can remember the animated conversations between him and my mother on Prophecy in their walks about our beautiful garden, or in the leisure of meal times, she holding the more general and popular opinions of the restoration of the Jews to their own land, etc. ” – A Brief Memoir

EMPHASIZES
EUSEBIUS’ PRETERISM

“From this reasoning of Eusebius, it is evident that he believed that the End had come. And in this there can be no doubt, I think, he was right; but as this involves a question very ill understood at this day, it may be right to offer a few words here, as to what is meant by the End.”

“Now, our Lord has identified his predictions (Matt. xxiv. and Luke xxi.) with these of Daniel. In the former (ver. 14.) He says: ” then shall the END come. When ye therefore shall see the abomination… spoken of by Daniel the prophet” (ix. 27; xii. 11.)…” then shall be great tribulation” (ver. 21. comp. Dan. ix. 26; xii. 1.) ‘ver. 34, “This generation shall not pass till all these things be,” i. e. commenced (comp. ver. 8.). In the latter (Luke xxi. ver. 22.) ” These be the days of vengeance, that ALL THINGS which are written MAY BE FULFILLED” (i. e. in them). That the terms, latter days, last days, end of the world, ends of the world, the fulness of time, refer to the times of the Apostles, and those immediately subsequent to these, the Concordance, with the parallels marked in our common Bibles, will be sufficient to shew.”
