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.

With the Logos edition of this volume you can perform powerful searches and access a wealth of information quickly and easily! Hovering over Scripture references displays the text from the original Hebrew and Aramaic—or your preferred English translation—and you can link the commentaries to the other commentaries in your digital library for accurate research and a fuller understanding of the Bible. Pastors, students, scholars, and general readers will find this volume a welcome and essential aid to a better understanding of this key book.

Top Highlights

“Further proof of his authorship comes from the Lord’s comments in the NT referring to ‘Daniel the prophet’ (Matt. 24:15; Mark 13:14). Hebrews 11:33 does not mention Daniel by name but clearly alludes to his escape from being eaten by the lions.” (Page xiv)

“Evidence for Daniel’s authorship comes from the author’s knowledge of details, and from his use of the first-person pronoun in the narrative (e.g., 7:28; 8:1–7, 15, 27; 9:2; 10:2, 7; 12:5).” (Page xiii)

“difficult to explain Daniel’s use of the name Belshazzar” (Page xxi)

“These views go against the context, which brackets the phrase with two phrases clearly referring to Antichrist’s rejection of other gods.” (Page 221)

“prophet Isaiah had before predicted that the king’s sons would be taken captive (2 Kings 20:18; Isa. 39:7).” (Page xv)
