You don't have to entertain the Mormon doctrine of people living on the sun in order to explain their teaching on it. Same with Preterism. I agree it's a flawed system, but I still think this question is interesting -- and useful. Maherlalhashbaz came before Christ, Antiochus Epiphanes before Antichrist, etc. Preterists tend to be good at the "local fulfillment".

comment Does Isaiah 11:3 involve smelling?
I think your answer is based on a strawman. The idea of "smelling" does not come from Christian theology, it comes from reading the Hebrew. "Delight" is an odd rendition of the word, but both Christians and non agree it fits better. That is why the Christian translations read that way. The question is how people (Christian and non) get "delight" from the Hebrew word for "smelling".

comment Does Isaiah 11:3 involve smelling?
You have said quite a bit about why you think Christians are wrong to take this as a prophecy about Jesus, but I don't see an answer to the actual question. What Hebrew word is used there, and what is the correct understanding of its usage? -1 for now.

I don't disagree, but that comment would be a more relevant answer than what you posted. Just wanted to explain my down vote so you weren't wondering.

comment Is “revile the gods” (KJV) an accurate translation in Exo. 22:28?
@JimThio is that your down vote? (If this info wasn't useful to you I'll delete the answer; I might have misunderstood what you were looking for.)

This does not answer the actual question. It's just a teaching on your perspective on the verse... The OP specifically asked about how Preterists would explain it.

comment Did Jesus subject Himself to the law of the land by paying the temple tax?
Ah, excellent line of inquiry in that case. I edited the title to try and fix the negative ring I felt it had, and focus it more on the issue you're trying to get at. Feel free to reverse the edit or notify me if you're not happy with the edit.
