Daniel in the Bible.
Daniel was one of the greatest prophets in the Bible and was
known for his accuracy as an interpreter of
dreams. His faithfulness to God caused him to be thrown into the lions
den and God saved him. Daniel was taken captive to Babylon around 606 BC when
he was very young, during the reign of Jehoiakim, King of Judah.
Jerusalem had been under attack by King Nebuchadnezzar and many Hebrews
were carried away as captives. Daniel became recognized in Babylon for
his wisdom, and King Nebuchadnezzar exalted Daniel because of his
accurate interpretations of his disturbing dreams. Daniel predicted the
rise and fall of the world governing kingdoms, And he even mention
them by name: Babylon, Medo Persia, Greece, Rome, and later a final
Roman Empire that would be crushed by the coming of the everlasting
kingdom of the Messiah. Daniel also predicted accurately when the
Messiah would die or be "cut off", which would take place 483 years
after the decree of the Persian ruler Cyrus to restore and rebuild
Jerusalem. The book of Daniel in the Bible was given its name because of
the man Daniel who wrote it.
