With stories of men who endured in the face of persecution, terrifying dreams, and mysterious visions, the book of Daniel has intrigued readers for generations. At the heart of this book, we don’t meet a mere man, however brave, faithful, or wise, but God, the King of Kings, who rules over every earthly kingdom and is committed to preserving His people through trouble and persecution.
The historical events and fantastic visions recorded in Daniel were written to comfort God’s suffering people in exile. Rather than being fodder for speculation, the Book of Daniel is meant to fuel the faith of persecuted believers. In this series, Alistair Begg explains that nations will rise and fall, and the enemies of God’s people will increase in strength, but in all of these things, we can take heart. God will preserve and deliver His people from evil. Christ the King will destroy His enemies when He comes in glory, and He will reign forever.
