We discuss the imagery of the four beasts of Daniel’s vision (Daniel 7:1-8), compare it to Nebuchadnezzar’s dream, and show how the “little horn” of Daniel 7 connects the terrifying fourth beast to God’s long war against Leviathan—chaos.
A prophecy given to Daniel by the angel Gabriel underlies the timeline of the Apocalypse. We introduce the seventy “weeks” decreed for the Jews and Jerusalem in Daniel 9:21-27, and how they connect to the Book of Revelation.
WHILE POLITICS hasn’t changed much in the last 2,500 years, we’re thankful that today being “thrown to the lions” is just a figure of speech. In Daniel’s day, it was apparently an effective way to dispose of political enemies.
