    As it appears that the vast majority of early Church fathers, with training/teaching received from the Apostles were pre Mill

    Were they as a group also Dispy in eschatological views for Isreal and Church?

    Here are some Church Historians who are and are on record as stating the Pre-mil view was not only apart of the early church but also the dominant view of it.
    Some are even Amil, Post-mil believers who are even against the Premil view
    Enjoy.
    Common themes of the Premil view are as follows:
    1. The anti-christ (a person) would both arise and reign
    2. Christ's return physically to earth and the overthrow of the anti-christ.
    3. Christ establishing His physical Kingdom on the earth.
    4. He would reign from Jerusalem both over and with His saints of all ages.
    5. His reign would last a literal 1000 years.
    6. There were 2 distinct resurrections. That of the saints before the 1000 year reign and the general - those who would be raised up for Judgment.
    7. Pre-mils did distinquish between Israel and Church.

    Regarding #7:
    The fact that the Jews (Israel) are brought back to Jerusalem for and during the reign of Christ and His saints is indictive of this.

    One last point to remember: The Dispy view is founded or maybe a better word is established on the Pre-millennial view, this evidenced above.

    So when did all these talk about preterism, both partial/hyper, get introduced into the Church?
