- Do you feel Mark was not an exception, as some say his account was written before 70 CE.
I fail to see any evidence of its being written earlier. Actually, I doubt any of the Gospels in their final form existed before the end of the 1st century. If we concentrate on the eschatological discourse in chapter 13, we do find elements which may derive from a pre-70 Jewish apocalypse (especially in v. 7f, 14-20, 24-27). But I sincerely doubt that the initial question-answer (v. 1f: "... Not one stone will be left here upon another; all will be thrown down") which gives the discourse its present context is earlier than 70 AD.
Why do you differentiate the test of Prophet from the test of Prophecy. (more explanation)
Actually they are completely unrelated (that was just a joke): what I meant by the "test of prophecy" is not to tell which apparent prophecy is "from God" but which is really a futuristic prediction, and not history in the disguise of prophecy. When we look back, only when we see the "prophecy" diverging from the historical course of events we can know for sure that the writer was not writing after the events...
Do you view any New Testament prophesy as being fulfilled?
I guess the very concept of prophecy in the sense of prediction
(there is much more to "prophecy" in the ancient and even biblical context) is something I came to reject even as a Christian. I mean, I don't think the future is written anywhere.
