Daniel 2:25-49

This passage presents the first of several dreams and visions in the book of Daniel. Like Joseph before him, Daniel is a believer who interprets the dream of a pagan ruler. There are several similarities to be seen between Joseph and Daniel, not only in their circumstances, but in their characters. We also see in both narratives an emphasis on the sovereignty of God.

Daniel 1, part two

The opening narrative sets out the major theme for the book of Daniel: the sovereignty of God. It is this truth that forms the center point of the faith and world view of four Hebrew teenagers who must determine how to live in an alien culture. Followers of Christ today need the same center point for our faith and world view, so the book of Daniel has much to teach us.
