The Life of Daniel

Daniel was a man who lived in the ancient Babylonian Empire. He was of Jewish descent, and he was taken captive by the Babylonians when they conquered his people. However, Daniel remained faithful to God, even in captivity. He rose to prominence in the Babylonian government, and he was known for his wisdom and righteousness. In the end, Daniel was vindicated by God, and he is celebrated as a hero.

Daniel in the Bible:

“And at that time some of the wise men and scribes came up to Jerusalem from Jerusalem.” (Matthew 2:1)

“And asked, ‘Where is He who has been born King of the Jews? For we have seen His star in the East and have come to worship Him.'” (Matthew 2:2)

“When Herod the king heard this, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him.” (Matthew 2:3)

“And when he had gathered all the chief priests and scribes of the people together, he inquired of them where the Christ was to be born.” (Matthew 2:4)

“So they said to him, ‘In Bethlehem of Judea, for thus it is written by the prophet:” (Matthew 2:5)

“‘But you, Bethlehem, in the land of Judah,

Are not the least among the rulers of Judah;

For out of you shall come a Ruler

Who will shepherd My people Israel.'” (Micah 5:2)
