    Was he a premillennialist when he wrote the commentary with the other two men?

    No, he was a premillennialist during his younger days, but he wrote his classic refutation of premillennialism (Christ's Second Coming: Will it be Premillennial?) in 1858 and his historicist postmillennial study of the restoration of the Jews in 1861. The JFB commentary was published in 1871, and his further historicist postmillennial study of the Apocalypse was written in 1891.

    Were Jameson and Fausset premillennialists?

    Andrew Robert Fausset (Irish Anglican, 1821 - 1910) was premillennial. Robert Jamieson (Scottish Presbyterian, 1802 - 1880) -- I'm not certain about his eschatological position.
