Book of Daniel: Courage Under Fire
The Old Testament stories of Daniel and his friends have been immortalized through the centuries, creating indelible memories of Daniel in the lion’s den, fiery furnaces, jealousy, kingly terror, and more. But Daniel has much more to offer throughout its brief 12 chapters for students who have questions about the Bible. This talk explores how Daniel’s courage and boldness are role models for today, whether seen in his courageous challenges to King Nebuchadnezzar or standing up to envious colleagues. Yet when and why the book of Daniel was written are equally important as we see those in the 2nd century BCE, under tremendous persecution, leaning back into their history for moments of inspiration — just as we are sometimes called to do.
This CD set (2) explains the important second half of the Book of Daniel so different from the Old Testament stories we usually think of when Daniel is considered. The latter chapters introduce the Biblical angels, Michael and Gabriel, as well as setting the apocalyptic groundwork for the New Testament’s book of Revelation. There is also a Daniel study guide or Daniel Bible Study Workbook for those who want to take a deeper plunge with friends. Enjoy this audio lecture in CD format or MP3 instant digital download.
