I'm about to sleep soon, and so I'll re-answer this again in the coming days.
Jnorm (Part 2 of 2),
3) Can you give me an example of when Jesus and the Apostles allegorized a passage in the OT?
I'll show a few examples later. Fow now, you can pick up Dr. Peter Enns book, he talks about it in a few chapters. http://www.amazon.com/Inspiration-Incarnation-Evangelicals-Problem-Testament/dp/0801027306
I know I have quotes and resources on my blog about it, but I'm tired right now, and so, I'll post it in the coming days.
4) Also you say the early Chillites thought the events in Revelation already occurred? Can you tell me who?
No, I said that they tought that some things were fullfilled when the Jewish Temple of 70A.D. fell, but that wasn't just their belief, but a belief held in common by all early christians back then.
5) How is eastern and western amill different?
It's different in some of the details, to be honest, I doubt if we even have a name to describe our view. "eastern amill" is what I call it.
When I was protestant, I recall arguing with full-preterists, and other postmillers....well, I still argue with them now, but you don't have all that over here.
There are western views that reject a future 2nd coming of Christ( full-preterists), a future tribulation( some post millers)......oh, I am friends with some western amillers that reject a future tribulation.
And I have friends that reject not only a future tribulation, but also a future man of sin/anti-christ.
Many of them reject all that, and so, you shouldn't always assume that the east is 100%ly the same as the west, because they may not be. And in this case, no, they are not.
