Daniel: Character Study

November 23, 2008 Leave a comment

“Daniel” appears 70 times in the NIV. Sixty-three of the 70 are in the book of Daniel. Only one, Matthew 24:15, is in the New Testament.

In the Zondervan NIV Bible Commentary Vol. 1 OT introduction to the book of Daniel, the authors write, “The principal theological emphasis in Daniel is the absolute sovereignty of the Lord, the God of Israel….A second theological emphasis is the power of persistent prayer.”

Daniel’s life is a case study in the power of God and the power of prayer.
