THE BOOK OF DANIEL

 

Daniel is an amazing book of history, containing prophecies so precisely fulfilled that liberal scholars dispute its authorship!

  • 18 – Daniel 8:1-14. In this chapter Daniel sees another vision, two years after the previous on in chapter seven. It’s got more beasties in it and, once more, is a stunningly accurate prophetic portrayal of the near future from Daniel’s perspective.  Except for the very last bit. What can we make of that?

Here’s an alternative explanation for your consideration.

  • 16 – Daniel 7:13-22. Daniel’s prophetic vision continues with “One like the Son of Man” being presented before the Ancient of Days. The Jewish Bible (JPS Tank 1985) says that the one Daniel saw was simply a ‘human being’. Which translation is biased [don’t answer yet!].
