On a cultural level, the Bible is a massively significant document of overpowering and overwhelming influence. It has remained a poignant fixture in modern culture. The controversies, disagreements, and utter worship of it by the Christian community open the door for it to remain the core document of modern times. As Christianity grows, its impact will only surface outside the United States and into other countries. Missionaries have already been well on their way in expounding on the word of God in the Bible. One group follows Preterism, and they rely on Preterist Bible commentary to assist in these overall beliefs and find clarity on often complex issues.
On a historical level, the Bible is just staggering. For hundreds of years, the Bible has been passed and taught to generation after generation. It is a mounting document that collects the events of Christ in the New Testament and the wrath and processes of God in the Old Testament.
Preterist Bible commentary relies on various passages of the Bible to understand that a lot of the prophetic elements of the Bible already occurred in the past,. Though this is a somewhat simplified version of the point, it is the basis of the Biblical movement.
The Book of Revelations, the closing book of the Bible, is one area that Preterists love to seek in their lives and pray upon. One passage in particular, offers an intense glimpse into the capabilities of God- in the past. Then I saw another mighty angel coming down from heaven. He was robed in a cloud, with a rainbow above his head; his face was like the sun, and his legs were like fiery pillars. 2He was holding a little scroll, which lay open in his hand. He planted his right foot on the sea and his left foot on the land” Revelation 10.
It builds a visceral understanding of what God has done, and commentary for the Bible sifts these passages and applies them to the very God that is understood. Without commentary, many are at a loss on what many sections of the Bible are saying, whether it is direct or discreet. It takes interpretations, ministers, and focused efforts of commentary to transcribe and pray over the word.
