The Book of Daniel

Michael Tunnicliffe

Daniel is the only true apocalyptic book in the Hebrew Bible. Yet it is a curious work. Many will know its stories of the Fiery Furnace and the Lion’s Den but be unfamiliar with the dream sequences in the second half of the book. Its date is much debated with very different conclusions reached by conservative and liberal scholars, which in turn affects how the book is interpreted. The imagery of Daniel also had a profound influence on the New Testament and later apocalyptic text. The course examines the many theories about its possible meaning.
