Which Hermeneutic It should be enough for any Christian that our Lord, the infallible Son of God, mentioned Daniel by name in His prophetic discourse delivered on Olivet (Matthew 24:15). When He uttered the words “Daniel the prophet,” He at once put His unimpeachable seal on both Daniel and his book.(taken from here) Arno C. Gaebelein, in his ...

Text critical perspective: The Four Kingdoms Sequence The concept of dividing the world into a sequence of four eras, and even associating those eras with four metals, did not originate with the book of Daniel. In the post-exilic period we find at least one Israelite text specifically using the same four metals in the same order for poetic or symbolic ...

The Idea in Brief There are two grammatical chiasms in the Book of Daniel: one in Aramaic and one in Hebrew. (Please click here for more information.)

The Idea in Brief The third person masculine references in the second half of Dan 7:27 allude to "the Most High."

It would depend on when your Chronology for Rome runs out. An interesting possibility is that Rome actually changed forms of Government. If you consider the beginning of the "legs of iron" to be the founding of the "Roman Empire", which began in 31 BC, with Octavius, Caesar Augustus (before that it was a Republic, including during Julius Caesar), then an ...

Daniel 7:27 reads: ומלכותה ושלטנא ורבותא די מלכות תחות כל־שמיא יהיבת לעם קדישי עליונין מלכותה מלכות עלם וכל שלטניא לה יפלחון וישתמעון׃ First of all, this is not Hebrew but Aramaic. The third word from the end (in bold) is l-eh, with the suffix for the third person singular masculine. It could mean “to him” (that is: to the most high one), but since the ...

To answer this question, one must address an underlying presupposition: that somehow the 5 Kingdoms merely represent political entities that were destroyed(or replaced) with future ones. Hence, the conclusion is "it all leads up to Christ", and an arbitrary conclusion that it ends with the Destruction of the Temple in 70 AD, from which time we have entered ...
