Session 1: Why is Daniel attacked so fervently? (17 min)
The Book of Daniel is the second most criticized section of scripture skeptics use to doubt the authenticity of the Bible (behind the Book of Jonah). Daniel plays an important role in the biblical canon concerning the Messiah and messianic prophecies and the criticism of the book is actually centuries old. Where did these idea originate from?
Session 2: The Historical Nebuchadnezzar (16 min)
In this episode we take a look at our first artifact that matches the period of Daniel. This artifact is often called the Babylonian Chronicle #5 or the Nebuchadnezzar Chronicle. It contains descriptions of the events leading to Nebuchadnezzar’s rise to the throne and his dealings with various kings of the region, including Israel’s kings. The Bible also contains records of these events. How well do the historical and biblical Nebuchadnezzars align?
