Daniel is taken to Babylon in captivity, but remains faithful even in dark times. God gives him important dreams and the ability to interpret them for everyone.
Christians and Jews alike will appreciate the timely events that Daniel sees in his visions, while giving us hope to look forward to where evil hearts and rulers will one day finally come to an end.
We also have a chance to get to know Daniel, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego and see them as the model example for believers living in the midst of a dark world, which applies both to Daniel's day and to ours in the end times. Keep an eye out for key manifestations of Jesus Christ as well, as He is often referred to descriptions of being like a "Son of Man."
