Hear the word of the lord
Inspire #3 – Daniel
Let’s start with some background on what was going on in Daniel’s time. The big news item of his day was the conquest of the known World by the King of Babylon. A man named Nebuchadnezzar. That’s where our story starts. Daniel 1: 1-2. In the third year of the reign of Jehoiakim king of Judah, Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon came to Jerusalem and besieged it. 2 And the Lord delivered Jehoiakim king of Judah into his hand, along with some of the articles from the temple of God. These he carried off to the temple of his god in Babylonia and put in the treasure house of his god.
