I know there are two schools of thought on the dating of John's Epistles - 66-67 AD or 90-95 AD. What has been the dominant view during the history of the church? I have always thought it was the latter; but I read someone positing it as the former, saying that the dispensational influence moved the dating forward to the 90-95 dating? Is this just partial preteriest post-mill rhetoric? If so, it makes me wonder if they are just out in left field as much as the dispy pre-mills.
