Podcast 7.8: Introduction to Daniel’s Historical Apocalypse

Here I introduce the “historical apocalypse” of Daniel, including a discussion of the kingdoms in king Nebuchadnezzar’s dream (ch. 2) and the historical context of chapters 7-12 (the visionary apocalypse proper) during the time of the Hellenistic king Antiochus IV Epiphanes (in the 160s BCE).

    Just wanted to take the opportunity to thank you for this podcast. I am enamored of this kind of historical analysis of the Bible. This clarification of history and fancy is invaluable to all of us.
