“Into the Lions’ Den! God Saves From Death”
Daniel, Chapters 3 & 6
The Fiery Furnace & the Lions’ Den
Persecutions (not “comfort”) are what is promised to God’s People, whether Jewish at the hands of the Babylonians/Selucids, or Christian at the hands of anyone. If suffering is an inevitable calling, then how does the Book of Daniel address that reality for God’s People.
Fr. Bill continues his series on Apocalypse as he looks at two of the most well known and beloved stories of the Bible and applies them to a very real experience suffered by Jews and Christians.
Daniel’s Visions, received during the Babylonian Exile, offer glimpses into the coming history of the Jewish People.
Fr. Bill discusses how the Book of Daniel conveys the foresight of the Prophet Daniel into his people impending destiny in the face of the history of the region at that time.
