Acts 1:9-11An old friend of mine has recently embraced full-preterism. This has provoked me to look at this issue, which I have been doing, off and on for the last few months. I recently came across this article by Keith Mathison: Acts 1:9–11 and the Hyper-Preterism Debate. What's interesting to me about this article is not Mathison's historical or exegetical explanation of this passage. Rather, his overview of full-preterist interpretations of this text are facinating. It's amazing the extent that some will go to read into a passage (very reminiscent of Mr. Camping).
9 And after He had said these things, He was lifted up while they were looking on, and a cloud received Him out of their sight. 10 And as they were gazing intently into the sky while He was going, behold, two men in white clothing stood beside them. 11 They also said, “Men of Galilee, why do you stand looking into the sky? This Jesus, who has been taken up from you into heaven, will come in just the same way as you have watched Him go into heaven.”
