Written in Babylon around 600 BC, this extraordinary text foreshadows the coming of Jesus and first gives Jesus the title, "the Son of Man". Understanding the historical context of this text can be quite complex, but Dr. Creasy makes it both simple and interesting. While an occasional ringing cell phone disrupts the lecture, the live aspect of the recording brings listeners right into the heart of the engaging story. Dr. Creasy's analysis of Daniel's words, including the choice of quotations and contextual details, appeals to both new and expert biblical scholars. Meanwhile, his clear enthusiasm makes learning about ancient Babylon lots of fun.
In Jewish Bibles, Daniel is classified among the “Writings”, not among the “Prophets”; in Christian Bibles, Daniel is classified among the major prophets. Written sometime in the second century B.C., the story of Daniel is set in Babylon, 605-539 B.C. Read through a Christian interpretative lens, Daniel foreshadows the coming of the Messiah as well as the “end time” events in the book of Revelation. Daniel is a very important book for Jesus, who draws his self-referential title “Son of Man” from Daniel 7:13-14; who quotes directly from Daniel 12 in the Olivet Discourse; and who seals his “guilty” verdict before Jerusalem’s religious leaders by reference to the book of Daniel.

Dr Creasy does an excellent job at explaining the numerous prophesies in the book of Daniel. The one that lines up with Jesus riding into Jerusalem is just amazing. I also liked how he explained how the Jews consider the book of Daniel one of the "writings" and not a prophetic book in their scriptures. This study is highly recommended.
This is a great bible study that gives background, historical context, and great biblical cross reference details that is almost impossible to find anywhere else. Have your bibles read and dive-in!
