The bottom line is that there is some degree of uncertainty regarding what Irenaeus meant.Was it Domitian or Domitius (Nero) that Irenaeus was referring to?
One would think such an argument is fool-proof and conclusive and beyond refute, to see the way futurists consistently use it.
Futurists claim that Revelation was written around the year AD96.
I am amazed at the proliferation of a faulty and inconclusive idea that pervades futurist teachings regarding the dating of the Book of Revelation.
And that false notion of this book's date is raised everytime a futurist is faced with Kingdom Eschatology and tries to shoot it down.
Now, the most important points for determining the time of writing of the Book of Revelation are the statements and the information in the book, which provide time elements and hints that either directly tell time factors or else imply or indicate time elements.
Considering the truth that the Book of Revelation was revealed by God and that the prophet John correctly wrote down the truths he was shown, we can see that the time related information in the book (internal to the book) is the most important criteria for dating the writing of the book.
As Preterist Ken Gentry writes, If the late-date of around A. 95-96 is accepted, a wholly different situation would prevail.
The events in the mid to late 60s of the first century would be absolutely excluded as possible fulfillments. If the book was written after A. 70, then its contents manifestly do not refer to events surrounding the fall of Jerusalem—unless the book is a wholesale fraud, having been composed after the predicted events had already occurred…
Where the book of Revelation is included in the Syriac versions it is referred to as "The Revelation which was made by God to John the evangelist in the island of Patmos, into which he was thrown by Nero Caesar." At any rate, here is what Eusebius quoted:"In this persecution [of Christians under Domitian], it is handed down by tradition, that the apostle and evangelist John, who was yet living, in consequence of his testimony to the divine word, was condemned to dwell on the island of Patmos.
Irenaeus, indeed, in his fifth book against the heresies, ...speaks in the following manner respecting him: 'If, however, it were necessary to proclaim [the name of the Anti-Christ], ...
He repeated this in "Against Heresies, :3" dated AD 175–180.Tags: Adult Dating, affair dating, sex dating
