Among which number I now also find the most learned Hugo Grotius, in those posthumous notes of his on the Apocalypse, lately publish'd', Hammond, Henry, ‘Paraphrase and Annotations’, introduction to Revelation (1653) 19. 'For most divines in the (early) Enlightenment the choice between the preterist approach of Grotius and the historicist approach of Cocceius was not a difficult one: there was a strong predilection for the latter’, Van Der Wall, Ernestine, 'Between Grotius And Cocceius: The 'Theologica Prophetica' Of Campegius Vitringa (1659-1722)', in 'Hugo Grotius, Theologian: Essays in Honour of G.

The "already/not yet" unproven: PD sees the kingdom as already here but also awaiting a future fulfillment as well. But A-Theorists are by no means committed to the denial of the Principle of Bivalence for future contingent statements (a deeply problematic and, hence, rarely defended position), and there is no good reason to think that the truth of such statements or God's knowledge of them in any way prejudices human freedom. 2 Thus, the combination of divine temporality with an A-Theory of time remains a live option.
