Like Daniel and his friends, captive in Babylon, Christians live as strangers and exiles in this world. We are different. We stand out because we trust in God's wisdom, not the wisdom of this world; we trust in God's forgiveness, in the face of our own evil and the evil of this world; and we trust in God's eternal kingdom rather than the passing rulers and authorities who dominate worldly politics.
In the book of Daniel, we find rich teaching and encouragement to keep seeing things God's way in a world that is determined to go its own way.
This Bible study resource is part of Matthias Media's series of Pathway Bible Guides. This series aims to provide simple, straightforward Bible study material for:
- Christians who are new to studying the Bible (perhaps because they've been recently converted or because they have joined a Bible study group for the first time)
- Christians who find other studies (such as the Interactive Bible Studies) too much of a stretch
- Groups with limited time for study
Accordingly, we've designed the studies to be short, straightforward and easy to use, with an uncomplicated vocabulary. At the same time, the studies do justice to the passages and model good Bible-reading principles. They are simple without being simplistic; no-nonsense without being no-content.
The questions and answers assume a small group context, but can be easily adapted to suit different situations, such as individual study and one-to-one.
