The book of Daniel is an account of Babylonian times, but it also has apocalyptic visions from God. The theme of this book is to show how God provides for those who are faithful to Him. The name Daniel means “God is judge.” It is interesting to think that the name corresponds with the lesions in the book. Daniel was a young man of the nobility who might have been 16-18 years old around the beginning of the book. He was taken to Babylon after the war of Jerusalem ended. Daniel, a young boy, was moved from his homeland and left all that he knew. He was thrown into a new culture with new pagan rules. Daniel trained in the Babylonian ways, culture, and language. He was soon an adviser and overseer to the personal service of Nebuchadnezzar (1).
