Shining as Stars

by David Robinson

The Liturgy of History

by Joe Boot

November 26, 2017 | Daniel 10:1-20

Messiah and Seventy Sevens

by Joe Boot

November 19, 2017 | Daniel 9:20-27

About the King’s Business

by David Robinson

The Beasts, the Son of Man and the Course of Empire

by Joe Boot

October 29, 2017 | Daniel 7:1-28

The Dens of Daniel

by Joe Boot

October 22, 2017 | Daniel 6:1-28

Daniel survived the den of lions because he first built up his confidence in God's word in another den: Daniel's daily place of prayer

 

Weighed and Found Wanting

by David Robinson

October 15, 2017 | Daniel 5:1-31

The story of King Belshazzar and the prophetic writing on the wall is a warning about pride, presumption and profanity.

 

Signs and Wonders

The story of Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego in the furnace is an excellent example of both the challenge and reward of obedience to God in a disobeying world.

 

God’s New Empire

by Joe Boot

September 24, 2017 | Daniel 2 1-49

Daniel's special role in interpretating Nebuchadnezzar's dream was an example of how God's people can spare both their own lives as well as those of the society they live in by standing up and acting.
