Principles of Interpretation  
The Most Obvious Interpretation In order to develop a correct understanding of end-time prophecy we must base our system of interpretation on key passages which are easy to understand. These key passages must have an obvious meaning. Then we should fit the more difficult passages into this framework.
Promises to Israel Analysis of the Old Testament passages concerning God's promises to Israel.
Jesus Is Coming Soon There are many passages in the New Testament which seem to state that the second coming of Christ would occur soon. Preterists make much of these passages in developing their view. In addition, many of the writers of the very early church seemed to also believe that it would occur soon. What are we to think of all this?
Christ Comes At Death I suggest that Jesus comes soon and quickly to each person at their death

Problems with Premillennialism The premillennial end-time viewpoint is favored among many evangelical theologians, but it has problems. This article summarizes some of these problems.
Preterism Preterism is the teaching that all passages about the second coming of Christ (the parousia) occurred in 70 A.D. during the destruction of Jerusalem and the temple. In this way the 70-plus passages about Jesus coming "soon" and "quickly" in "this generation" are literally fulfilled.

Problems with the Popular Scenarios Overview.
