Among these things, Papias says that there will be a millennium after the resurrection from the dead, when the personal reign of Christ will be established on this earth. - Eusebius, citing Papias Who was Papias? He was the bishop of Hierapolis in Asia Minor and a disciple of John and a friend of Polycarp. He lived from 60-130. So a personal disciple of the man who wrote Revelation was premillenial. You cannot get any closer to the apostles than this. This is the kind of information that the crazy amills and postmills and preterists don't want you to know. I got this information from a book I just picked up called, "A Dictionary of Early Christian Beliefs". David W. Bercot was the editor. He was anglican and no friend of premill theology. Yet, any honest person will examine the writings of the fathers and see that they were premill.
