The book of Daniel is both familiar and unfamiliar to Christians. The stories of the fiery furnace and Daniel in the lion’s den are the staples of children’s Bible story books and Sunday school classes. Yet the latter chapters of Daniel’s vision are more unfamiliar and daunting to most believers.
Through Daniel’s visions and experiences as an exile in Babylon, the book of Daniel gives us a clearer understanding of history than any other part of the Bible. The book makes clear that it is God who is in control of all human events that have unfolded or will occur in the future. At the same time, it shows us how to live for God in ungodly days, much like our own.
But the book of Daniel is more than moral lessons or a prophetic timetable of end-times speculations. It points us to Christ, the One greater than Daniel — the Son of Man — who took on flesh and perfectly lived an exilic life of service and separation for us.
