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.
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.
