The Dispensational View of the Davidic Kingdom: A Response to Progressive Dispensationalism

Stephen J. Nichols | August 25, 2009

Progressive dispensationalism has departed from one of the historical distinctives of normative dispensationalism, that of the offer, rejection, postponement, and exclusively future fulfillment of the Davidic kingdom. It has also failed to include a related distinctive, the church’s separateness from the Davidic kingdom. Dispensationalists from the successive periods of history have repeatedly emphasized these distinctives, an emphasis that nondispensational critics have also noted. Progressive dispensationalism, on the other hand, has not advocated these distinctives, raising the question of whether that movement deserves the label “dispensational” or whether it belongs more in the category of nondispensational historical premillennialism.
