What would best represent the Reformed historical eschatology views? I have heard that the Puritans were mostly Post-mill, so is that the historical Reformed position. I would gather not since it is not the majority view of the Reformed today.

In addition, I have heard that the a-mill and post-mill positions were basically the same at one time (which was the historical Reformed position), but have separated into their various camps. If so, what cause that separation.

And lastly, how did the Golden Age become associated with Post-Mill?

Hi John,

There was a thread on part of your question a while back.
http://www.the-highway.com/forum/showthr...prev=#Post36965

I'm not sure if there was a conclusive end reached, but I think there were some good arguments that the historic Reformed position is Amillenial. At the time, I couldn't find a good source of what Calvin's views were since (to my knowledge) he didn't write a commentary on Revelation. But, since then I read his commentary on Matthew 24 and I think it's pretty clear that he was amil.

I've always been curious too as to why the Puritans seemed to embrace Postmill. as much as they did.

Isn't amill actually a form of postmill? I'm not sure when the current form of post-mill emerged, but I would like to know too. I haven't read any authors who advocated the current form of postmill before the time of the Puritans, but I'm sure their must have been.

John
