Building Bridges to God and Helping People Across
"It's urgent that you listen carefully to this: Anyone here who believes what I am saying right now and aligns himself with the Father, who has in fact put me in charge, has at this very moment the real, lasting life and is no longer condemned to be an outsider. This person has taken a giant step from the world of the dead to the world of the living.  -- John 5:24 (The Message)

The Book of Daniel

The Book of Daniel has two parts. 

The first half has famous stories like Daniel and the Lion's Den, he Fiery Furnace; and Hand Writing on the Wall.  These stories fascinate me because Daniel is living out his faith in a world that doesn't recognize God.  His faith is without religion.  It is a faith that we can find useful as we live in a world that doesn't recognize God and is repulsed by religion.

The second half, Daniel starts having visions.  Are these visions of the end of time?  Are they visions of the next 500 years of the future?  Are they visions of the coming Messiah, Jesus Christ?  Join us as we journey through these difficult passages.

Below you'll find a video introduction for each chapter so that as you read each chapter for yourself, you will have some idea of what is going on in Daniel's life so that the story will make a little more sense.   Enjoy!

Note on Commentaries for Preachers or
People Who Want to Dig Really Deep


Since there are at least three major interpretations of Daniel, you have to choose your commentaries very carefully.

Daniel -- Concordia Commentary -- By Andrew E Steinmann - This is a Lutheran commentary.  I found it difficult to find a commentary that was Amillennial.  Whether you are Amillennial or not, Steinmann lays out the arguments in each chapter for a liberal interpretation, a traditional interpretation, or an end times interpretation.  Steinmann usually sees the visions pointing toward the first advent of Christ during the Roman Empire.  From his layout, you can make an informed decision about how you would like to interpret the text.  He is also very detailed about the history, which enabled me to bring the text alive.  Note: Steinmann identifies the Anti-christ.  This type of open speculation can be very damaging.  I do not share this view.

Daniel -- An Expositional Commentary -- By James Montgomery Boice -- Boice was the senior pastor of Tenth Presbyterian Church in Philadelphia, PA.  His theology is Reformed, but his commentaries reflect his preaching, and I find that helpful in constructing the sermon outline.  However, surprisingly, Boice takes a strong end times position on Daniel.  I still read through his commentary first for every chapter.  He was a great communicator.

Daniel - Word Biblical Commentary -- By John E Goldingay -- I found this helpful at times, but Steinmann was so thorough I didn't use it much.

Daniel -- The New American Commentary -- By Stephen R Miller
