A Faith-Building Study From Daniel 11

If we measure the significance of Daniel 11 by the amount of attention that critics give it, then it must be a chapter of great magnitude. Indeed it is. In his work, Daniel the Prophet, E.B. Pusey wrote: "The book of Daniel is especially fitted to be a battlefield between faith and unbelief. It admits of no half-measures. It is ... read more »

Daniel 3:6ff – Did They Really Burn People?

Every Bible student is familiar with the Old Testament narrative concerning Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego - the Hebrew lads who refused to worship the Babylonian image of gold during the days of the Captivity Era (see Daniel, chapter 3). As a result of archaeological discoveries, several bits of information have come to light which demonstrate the accuracy of the book ... read more »

An Amazing Prophecy in the Book of Daniel

Infidelity does not admit to the reality of Bible prophecy. Since prophecy is one of the strongest evidences for the inspiration of the Scriptures, it is no surprise that it should be repudiated by those who have a biased interest in discrediting the word of God. There is a fascinating account of prophecy in the Old Testament that is worthy ... read more »

How Can the Church Be the Fulfillment of Daniel 2:44?

We recently received a question concerning the fulfillment of Daniel 2:44, as to how it can be said that the establishment of the church crushed and brought an end to earthly kingdoms. When Daniel gave Nebuchadnezzar the divine interpretation of the king's dream, he said: "And in the days of those kings shall the God of heaven set up a ... read more »

Daniel’s Prophecies: Encouraging and Enlightening

Skeptics despise the book of Daniel. If Daniel received visions as he said he did, and if he wrote these prophecies as he claimed to have done, then this book is unmistakably a product of divine inspiration. The issues raised by those who arbitrarily assign the book to an unknown, unnamed author of the second century B.C. are not our ... read more »

Daniel’s Prophecy of Antiochus Epiphanes

"The Most High God rules the kingdom of mankind and sets over it whom he will" (Dan. 5:21, ESV). Belshazzar knew this, but he disregarded the hard-learned lesson of Nebuchadnezzar (v. 22). He was, therefore, weighed in the balances. Likewise, all who live with a disregard for the Most High God are found wanting (v. 27). Babylonian Captivity furnished the ... read more »

A Survey of the Major Prophets

There is a collection of five Old Testament books that are commonly designated as the "Major Prophets." This appellation is not intended to suggest a superior character; rather, these documents are major in size, compared to the twelve books of the "Minor Prophets." The Major Prophets represent the books of Isaiah, Jeremiah, Lamentations, Ezekiel, and Daniel. Isaiah The book of ... read more »

What About Daniel’s Prophecy of the General Resurrection?

"Is Daniel's prophecy, in chapter 12, verse 2, a symbolic reference to Israel's deliverance from Babylonian captivity, as some claim, or does it refer to the general resurrection of the dead at the end of time?" Some five centuries before the birth of Jesus Christ, the prophet Daniel, from captivity in Babylon, uttered a remarkable prophecy that has echoed reverberations ... read more »

The Bapto Word-family in the Septuagint

A gracious gentleman, who appears to be a sincere Bible student, suggests there is evidence in the Septuagint (the Greek Old Testament; abbreviated LXX) that the word bapto (or kindred forms) may be used to signify the acts of sprinkling or pouring as a form of baptism. His assertion has troubled some. I have been asked to comment. By the ... read more »

Ecclesiastes 3:19-21 — Man, Animals, and Death

Religious materialists contend that man does not possess an incorruptible spirit. Rather, it is alleged, humanity is wholly mortal. It is argued that in this respect man does not differ from an animal. The Jehovah's Witnesses claim, based upon their misunderstanding of Ecclesiastes 3:19-21, that "there is nothing that humans have as a result of birth that gives them superiority ... read more »
