I was recently watching a debate on the dating of Revelation in which Hank Hanegraaff made some very interesting arguments in support of his hermeneutic, which he referred to as "exegetical eschatology." He said his approach has often been misclassified as "Preterist" or "Partial Preterist," but maintained that this is definitely not a correct classification of his hermeneutic.
I'm not very familiar with this hermeneutic, but it sounds as though he sees an immediate fulfillment, which is related to an eschatological reality, maybe? (I'm not sure I have that right.) He mentioned that he has a book out which explains his hermeneutic more fully, although I'm not sure which book that is. (Maybe this one?)
My question is for those who are actually familiar with this hermeneutic: Is this hermeneutic original, or are there other notable Biblical scholars that use this interpretive approach to Biblical prophecy?
Please note that I am aware that the term "exegetical eschatology" was coined by Hank Hanegraaff, so I'm not wondering whether or not that label has been used by other scholars (it probably has not); I am wondering whether that approach has been the approach of any other major Biblical scholars throughout history, or if his ideas are novel. In other words, is this just "Hank Hanegraaff's hermeneutic," or does this represent a noteworthy school of interpretation?
