Passing of Heaven & Earth - Chilton

David Chilton gave these two speeches at a full preterist conference in Oklahoma City in 1997, not long after he had become a full preterist, and only a few months before he died. That was the occasion when he made the now famous remark: “...Here I am as a Full Preterist.” Chilton explained the meaning of Matthew 5:17-20 where Jesus predicted the passing away of the old heavens and earth. He shows that this was referring to the soon-coming end of the old covenantal world and the arrival of the new covenantal world in Christ and in the Church. He shows that this was the same “heaven and earth” and covenantal world mentioned in both 2 Peter 3 and Hebrews 8:13. He quotes from John Owen, John Brown, Milton Terry, J. S. Russell, and F. F. Bruce to support his point. Perhaps the most valuable part of this is his critique of Theonomy as it was explained by Greg Bahnsen and William Einwechter. Chilton clearly shows how the Theonomists misinterpreted both Matt 5:17-20 and Heb 8:13 when they bound the “jots and tittles” of the Ceremonial Law upon us today.
