Background Of Daniel (Scofield Study Bible)
The book of Daniel, like Revelation in the New Testament, is called an apocalypse, as are Isaiah 24-27 (the Isaiah Apocalypse) and the visions of Zechariah. “Apocalypse” means “unveiling.” Apocalyptic writing may use many forms and symbols.
The author of this book, Daniel, whose name means “God is my judge, was taken in his youth to Babylon in the first deportation under Nebuchadnezzar. His life extended to at least 530 B.C.
Daniel is a book of kings and kingdoms, of thrones and dominions. While including a number of historical records, it embodies prophecies of the sequence of kingdoms in “the times of the Gentiles” (Luke 21:24; see Revelation 16:19, note), and portrays the end of this period. It voices the only prophecy in the Old Testament (9:24-27) that sets the time of the Messiah’s first advent.
The book of Daniel shows the timeline of The Gentiles. The book of Ezekiel shows the timeline Of The Jews.
