Daniel is one of the most important books of the Bible to understand. Daniel connects the Old and New Testaments. Through Daniel, God revealed the exact date month and year of Messiah death (Christ) and events leading to His return.
Daniel demonstrates God’s complete control and comprehension over time and nations, by giving detailed prophecies about the succession of kingdoms and rulers. Daniel foretells the eventual establishment of Messiah’s kingdom, which will overthrow the kingdoms of this world.
For the reason, Daniel is often the most attacked book in the Bible. Critics date Daniel’s authorship to the 2nd century B.C., otherwise critics would be forced to accept the super natural.
Daniel is also important for anybody who wants to understand Bible prophecy. Without understanding Daniel, a thorough understanding of Revelation is impossible. Daniel is the foundation for the book of Revelation. The book of Revelation, is the completion of the plan first revealed to Daniel in the Babylonian and Persian kingdoms over 2500 years ago.
