Short Reflection On Daniel Chapters 7 & 8

By 24th November 2018Weekly Reflections

Daniel’s vision in chapter 7 reminds us of Nebuchadnezzar’s vision in chapter 2, where it speaks of the rise and fall of the 4 great empires of the day – Babylonian, Medo-Persian, Greek and Roman – and the establishing of God’s Kingdom which shall never be destroyed. However, is also expands on that and looks at the struggle of the early Church within the Roman Empire, the trials and tribulations it faced, and yet prevailed.

Then in chapter 8 we focus on the rise and fall of the Medo-Persian and Greek empires but again it is the struggle the early Church faces during the Roman period that this focusses on too.
