The book of Daniel opens with a dark period in Israel’s history and ends with a panoramic view of future world events. The early chapters offer a glimpse into Israel’s captivity and the daily struggles of those who remained faithful to Jehovah. These stories from Daniel’s personal life contain valuable principles for the Christian today.
As the introduction to biblical prophecy, the book’s later chapters sketch the outline of the world kingdoms from Daniel’s time to the second coming of the Lord. Through a series of prophetic visions, Daniel tells of the Tribulation, the Antichrist, the return of the Lord to the earth, the resurrections, and the following judgments.
In this verse-by-verse study of Daniel, Peter Steveson gives attention to both the historical and prophetic portions of the book, with particular emphasis on understanding and practical application. This discussion of each verse includes Old Testament background information and close consideration of the KJV and Hebrew Aramaic texts. Steveson discusses alternative views of each disputed passage, taking a conservative approach in line with the inspiration of Scripture. A Commentary on Daniel is a valuable resource for preaching, teaching, or personal study.
