This past weekend at Eastbrook Church, I continued our series on the book of Daniel by turning our attention to chapter 7, which begins the markedly different second half of the book. Chapters 1-6 are court narratives, while chapters 7-12 are apocalyptic visions. This first vision serves as a sort of parallel to Daniel 2 and overview of where the rest of the book is going.
Pastor Femi Ibitoye continued our series on the book of Daniel, “Daniel: Apocalyptic Imagination and Exile Faith,” this past weekend at Eastbrook Church. This weekend we looked at Daniel, chapter 6, one of the most famous passages from Daniel where he finds himself under pressure and eventually thrown in the lions’ den.
We returned to our series on the book of Daniel, “Daniel: Apocalyptic Imagination and Exile Faith,” this past weekend at Eastbrook Church after a two-week hiatus for our annual MissionsFest. This weekend we looked at Daniel, chapter 5, where a mysterious hand appears in the midst of Belshazzar’s feast with a divine message for the king. There is so much we could have talked about, but I chose to focus in on the challenge of hearing the message of God in the midst of letters and words that sometimes feel hard to understand.
