70 AD was only the judgment of Christ upon Jerusalem, using heathen armies as He did so many times during Old Testament times.  God was said to ride on clouds and come in judgment, when heathen armies came upon God's people.  It was God's use of the heathens to afflict His people due to disobedience.

Some have ignorantly mocked our stance about the coming of the Lord in judgment in 70 AD, accusing us of proposing the resurrection occurred at that time, also.  They are very wrong.  Christ only came in judgment upon Jerusalem at that time.  There was no resurrection.  It was only a localized coming of judgment and not at all to be confused with the second coming of the Lord. Full Preterism teaches there was a resurrection at that time.  However, that is not the case.  
Behold, he shall come up as clouds, and his chariots shall be as a whirlwind: his horses are swifter than eagles. Woe unto us! for we are spoiled. O Jerusalem, wash thine heart from wickedness, that thou mayest be saved. How long shall thy vain thoughts lodge within thee? (Jer 4:13-14)

God judged Egypt using heathen armies, but look at how He described the judgment in His own words:
For the day is near, even the day of the LORD is near, a cloudy day; it shall be the time of the heathen. And the sword shall come upon Egypt, and great pain shall be in Ethiopia, when the slain shall fall in Egypt, and they shall take away her multitude, and her foundations shall be broken down. (Eze 30:3-4)
God said He would come, Himself.  Yet it was heathen armies who came.
At Tehaphnehes also the day shall be darkened, when I shall break there the yokes of Egypt: and the pomp of her strength shall cease in her: as for her, a cloud shall cover her, and her daughters shall go into captivity. Thus will I execute judgments in Egypt: and they shall know that I am the LORD. (Eze 30:18-19)
Here, God states, Himself, that He will use Assyria as the rod of His anger to judge his own people.
O Assyrian, the rod of mine anger, and the staff in their hand is mine indignation. I will send him against a hypocritical nation, and against the people of my wrath will I give him a charge, to take the spoil, and to take the prey, and to tread them down like the mire of the streets. (Isa 10:5-6)
So this same thing occurred in 70 AD against Jerusalem, using the same figurative language of clouds in Matthew 24.  There was no resurrection at that time.  Just judgment against Jerusalem for crucifying the Lord.

Perhaps these people who disagree feel Jesus is another God aside from the One in the Old Testament?
