We look at a unique chapter of Daniel. So unique, in fact, that Daniel didn’t write it. Daniel chapter 4 is the personal testimony of King Nebuchadnezzar. We take a look at Nebuchadnezzar’s experience, why it is included, and how it may turn out in eternity for the King. We then turn our attention to why Nebuchadnezzar went through this experience – pride. We hope you enjoy this Bible study and are blessed by it.
As we continue to study the book of Daniel we come to a familiar story to most Christians. The story of three young Hebrew men who would not bow when the king attempted to force them to worship a graven image. The consequences were dire, but God was faithful. It’s a story we’ve been told since we were children in Sunday School, but there are interesting questions to ask in light of the events of Chapter 2. Why is the king doing this in first place? Why would anyone tell on these guys? And most intriguing of all – WHERE WAS DANIEL? We look at these questions and challenge ourselves with the resolve of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego as the study of Daniel continues.
Nebuchadnezzar’s advisers are put to the test, and it falls to Daniel to save their lives. What unfolds is a display of God’s foreknowledge of history. Daniel chapter 2 displays for us the full knowledge of God of history before history happens and a glimpse of what is to come in the future. This chapter is a defining chapter of scripture along with others in Daniel that provide authentication not only for this book’s place in scripture, but also as a precisely prophetic book.
Jody isn’t here on this return to the podcasting airwaves, but we start fresh with a new Bible study through the book of Daniel. There is some history leading into the timeline of the book, information about the book’s authenticity, then we dive into the book and Daniel and his friends’ first stand in Babylon. We hope you are blessed by this new study, and encouraged by the life of Daniel.
