Jewish Bibles classify Daniel among the “Writings,” not the “Prophets”; Christian Bibles elevate Daniel to the position of a major prophet. Daniel is taken captive to Babylon after its first attack on Jerusalem in 605 B.C. Daniel’s book is set in Babylon and spans the years 605 – 539 B.C.
A great story, Daniel is also a major source of Christian messianic prophecy, with Jesus taking his self-referential title “Son of Man” from Daniel 7: 13-14 and also referencing Daniel concerning the end times: “So when you see standing in the holy place the abomination that causes desolation, spoken of through the prophet Daniel…” (Matthew 24: 15).
Dr. Bill Creasy of Logos Bible Study uses a literary, historical approach to examine and enliven the bible for modern listeners. Dr. Creasy draws on his studies, travels, and personal anecdotes to vividly depict the works of scripture. He speaks in a pleasant, friendly voice but with authority, frequently incorporating contemporary references. The programs are a lively combination of a sermon and college lecture.
In this episode, Dr. Creasy discusses The Royal Prophet (Daniel 1: 1-12: 13).
