So, the Ancient Jews believed in a "Day of the Lord". A day when God would come in judgement--striking His foes down and saving His people. Daniel shows visions of such a day. As you read, remember this context. Also remember we are reading a TINY piece of a much larger book.
Remember, this would be the stuff that was half belief and half legend. Something told by campfires and talked about in hushed whispers in the exile.
Read Daniel 7:9-14 several times. Then read the entire chapter.
1) How does the small selection point to Jesus.
2) If you were an Ancient Jew, what kind of Messiah would you be looking for?
3) How does reading the larger selection change your mind or views?
4) What part of the reading stuck out to you?
Can't wait to hear your thoughts!
