Are you saying that Hendriksen uses the idealist position in his commentary?

Is there a simple explanation of the modified idealist position?

Hendriksen is an idealist. Ridlebarger uses a Redemptive-Historical form of modified idealism. His is a futurist who believes that while past events may point to shadow fulfillment of some prophecies, the complete fulfillment of Biblical eschatology is still to come.
