The purpose of this course is to examine the Old Testament book of Daniel and learn how the book clearly contrasts the Kingdom of God with the kingdoms of earth, how God preserved and punished Israel by sending them into captivity in Babylon, and how God's presence with exiles served to both embolden and empower them during their time there.  We will also investigate how the book of Daniel stands as a monumental precursor to the book of Revelation, was affirmed by Jesus as Scripture, and how significant imagery from the book clarifies the teachings of Jesus concerning the Second Coming.
