DREAMS OF GOD’S PLAN – Apocalypse #14

“Dreams of God’s Plan”
Daniel, Chapters 2 & 7
The Statue and the Four Beasts

The Visions featured in the Book of Daniel deal with the History of the Jewish People from the Babylonian Exile to the Maccabean Revolt.  Join me as I discuss how the Dream of Nebuchadnezzar (Daniel 2) and the Dream of Daniel (Chapter 7) speak to the author’s faith in God’s plan for the Jewish People and his hope for their future, as well as its fulfillment in Christianity.

FIERY FURNACE AND LIONS’ DEN – Apocalypse #12

“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.
