A short comment on one thing that has really helped my Bible study tremendously: Cross-references. It might seem like I'm pointing out the obvious, but it is often very much overlooked. In preparing my next article on Isaiah - chapter 60 - I noticed, for instance, 6 clear references to Rev. 21. It is this cross-tying that has helped me to come to a preterist understanding. I encourage everyone to be extra diligent to ferret out all those cross-references. Don't go automatically to a commentary (whether Disp. or Pret or anyone) and get their slant. Don't let anyone explain away that faint red light in your awareness. Study it out. It is time consuming, but it leads to a really solid foundation that will not easily be shaken.
