Revelation 5: Worthy is the Lamb Who Was Slain1. It’s especially important in a book like Revelation that we pay attention to words like “then” when we begin studying a new chapter. For instance, “Then I saw…” (5:1). Thinking back to our last lesson, what’s the context?2. By way of reminder, who is the one “who was seated on the throne” (5:1)?3. When a Hebrew (or anyone living 2,000 years ago) thought of a sealed scroll, what would come to mind?4. We get the sense that...

• LESSON 13 (April 1) •Daniel 12: The God Who Reigns Over History QUESTIONS WORTH THINKING ABOUT: 1. In light of recent chapters, what should we make of Michael being described as “the great prince who has charge of your people” (12:1a)? 2. “But at that time your people shall be delivered, everyone whose name shall be found written in the book” (12:1b). What is this communicating to Daniel and his fellow Jews? 3. What should we make of Daniel 12:2-3? 4. Why do you think this...

• LESSON 12 (March 25) • Daniel 11: The God Who Wins the Ultimate Victory (2) BACKGROUND:  Daniel 11 is a continuation of the massive final vision Daniel received in 536 B.C. The prophecy contained in this chapter is remarkable in its detail and accuracy; some 130 predictions are made in the first 35 verses. The chapter is without rival for precedent in the rest of the Old Testament. Nowhere else is so much specific foretelling to be found in one place.  The acid test of whether...

• LESSON 11 (March 18) • Daniel 10: The God Who Wins the Ultimate Victory Wouldn’t it be nice if we knew “the rest of the story” of our lives? Or even better, how great would it be if we had perfect knowledge of what was going on in heaven parallel to our earthly circumstances? Hypothetically, if we knew an answer to our prayers was being delayed by the demon assigned to the Iranians, would we be more or less encouraged? If Job had known why he was being made to suffer, would it have...

• LESSON 10 (March 11) • Daniel 9: The God Who Sees, Hears, and Acts BACKGROUND:  The setting of Daniel 9 is “the first year of Darius the son of Ahasuerus, by descent a Mede, who was made king over the realm of the Chaldeans” (9:1-2; 5:31). It is also the year (539-538 B.C.) in which Cyrus issued the proclamation that the Jews could return to their homeland (2 Chron 36:22-23; Ezra 1:1-2).  The section of Jeremiah’s prophecy that Daniel was studying is Jeremiah 25 and 29. ...

• LESSON 9 (March 4) • Daniel 8: The God Who Bestows and Breaks Power BACKGROUND: • This vision takes place in Belshazzar’s third year (548-547 B.C.). God’s Spirit takes Daniel to Susa, particularly to the Ulai canal, a body of water on Susa’s northeast side. Susa was a fortress-city about 200 miles east of Babylon. At the time of the vision, it was the capital of Elam. Later, Susa served as the winter residence for Persian kings until Darius I made it his capital in 521 B.C. and...

• LESSON 8 (February 25) • Daniel 7: The God Who Judges BACKGROUND:  This vision dates to the first year of Belshazzar’s reign (550-549 B.C.), meaning it took place sometime between Daniel 4-5. Belshazzar was coregent with his father, Nabonidus, and Babylon was just a decade away from falling to the Medes and Persians.  It was in 550 B.C. that Cyrus usurped the throne from Astyages the Mede and forged a new empire; though few realized it at the time, the political landscape of the...

LESSON 7 Four Great Empires in Old Testament History BACKGROUND:  “Now that we have gotten used to the rather straightforward plots of Daniel 1-6 we suddenly find ourselves in a strange world, a world of hybrid beasts and riders on the clouds.Furthermore, we encounter what look like timetables, but timetables that are impossible to penetrate... What are we to make of these images and dreamlike numbers?” (Longman, Daniel,177-178).  There are two significant dangers in studying Daniel...

• LESSON 6 (February 11) • BACKGROUND:  The Medo-Persian Empire was the largest the world had seen at that time. It stretched from India to Ethiopia and, during the time of Esther, was composed of 127 satrapies (Est 1:1; 8:9) —a satrap meant “protector of the empire.” In the time of Daniel, the number was 120 (6:1). Over these 120 satraps were three “high officials,” similar to the seven princes/counselors under Xerxes (Est 1:14) and Artaxerxes (Ezra 7:14).  Solomon’s...

• LESSON 5 (February 4) • The God in Whose Hand is Your Breath BACKGROUND:  Between the end of Daniel 4 and the beginning of Daniel 5, we flash forward more than twenty years. Nebuchadnezzar died in 562 B.C. and Babylon fell to Cyrus in 539 B.C. A lot transpired in those two decades. o Nebuchadnezzar’s son, Amel-Marduk, ascended the throne and reigned for about two years. He was assassinated in August 560 by Neriglissar, whose brief reign of four years was very tumultuous. o...

The God Who Rules the Kingdom of Men BACKGROUND: • This “confession” made in the form of an “open letter” of sorts most likely documents a season near the end of Nebuchadnezzar’s life if we take his words in Daniel 4:30 to mean that the bulk of his building program had already been completed. • “The Most High rules the kingdom of men and gives it to whom he will and sets over it the lowliest of men” is a truth found throughout Scripture (1 Sam 2:8; Psa 33:10-11; 113:7-8;...

• LESSON 3 (January 21) • The God Who Delivers BACKGROUND:  A “cubit” was the distance between one’s elbow and the tip of the middle finger—approximately 18 inches—which means Nebuchadnezzar’s image of gold would have been somewhere in the vicinity of ninety feet tall and nine feet wide.  God’s prohibition against idolatry would have been well-known to Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah. o At the head of the Ten Commandments were “You shall have no other gods...

• LESSON 2 (January 14) • The God Who Establishes His Kingdom BACKGROUND: • The events of this chapter take place during Nebuchadnezzar’s second year (603-602 B.C.) • Nebuchadnezzar was not the first king to dream in the Bible (Gen 41:1-8; 1 Kings 3:5-14) • If Nebuchadnezzar’s threat in Daniel 2:5 seems too extreme to be believable, consider what he later did to King Zedekiah (2 Kings 25:7). • Dates of world empires referenced in Daniel 2: o Babylonian Empire (625-539 B.C.) –...
