OUR PURPOSE & MISSION
The primary purpose and mission of PRI is to lift the veil off of what has seemed to be a mystery for many Christians over the past 2,000 years. This site is dedicated to revealing the true meaning of “The Apocalypse,” or “The Revelation,” using sound principles of interpretation, consistent methods of exegesis, and using a historical-grammatical approach as we study eschatology (last-things) in general. We teach and defend what is known as the “Preterist” method of Biblical interpretation, known also as Fulfilled or Covenant Eschatology, which is a New Covenant theological approach.
“In all things we dialogue when possible, debate when necessary, and at all times we display charity and good will.”
PRETERIST RESEARCH INSTITUTE (PRI)
Established in 2006, PRI is a not-for-profit organization, founded for the purpose of educating the Christian and non-Christian world. As an educational function, PRI teaches a biblical method of interpretation known as Preterism or Covenant Eschatology. PRI regularly offers public lectures, seminars, debates, books, audio commentaries, and videos for the purpose of religious education. PRI is also dedicated to distributing material around the world to groups including prisons, foreign missionaries, seminaries, churches, educational institutions, and individual groups of various backgrounds. You can also visit our sister website at www.eschatology.org.
ANNUAL PPW (PRETERIST PILGRIM WEEKEND)
Every year Dr. Don K. Preston of the Preterist Research Institute hosts a conference in Ardmore, Oklahoma for the purpose of advancing the biblical understanding of Covenant Eschatology (knows as Preterism). Dr. Preston and a host of invited guest speakers present arguments, lectures, debates, and merchandise tables where different topics related to eschatology are chosen and presented. In addition to the fellowship and learning that takes place, PRI also offers a variety of food and other catered items for the enjoyment of its guests. Over the years, attendees of PRI have traveled from all 50 states, and numerous international locations, which has grown in attendance nearly every year. What began as a simple seminar with only a few people, has now grown into a staple “must come” event for many since the inception of the PPW.
