Study Series 9 Lesson 1: In Study Series 9 we do a full study on the entire book of Daniel. In Lesson 1 our study is within chapters 1 through 9. We look thoroughly into the setting, background, culture, world view, history, and a myriad of OT and NT scriptures as we explore the biblical meaning of such things as: the dream visions of the 4 kingdoms and 4 beasts. The promised everlasting Kingdom which would be established during the time of the 4th kingdom. The understanding of the mixture of iron and clay on the feet of the statue dream of Nebuchadnezzar. The vision of the “writing on the wall.” The coming of the Son of Man “to” the ancient of days to receive His everlasting Kingdom. The Little Horn. The incredible perfect historical fulfillment of Daniel 7 and 8, and an in depth sub study into the “70 weeks” of Daniel 9:24-27. As well as so many other things contained within the first 9 chapters of the book of Daniel.
Sub Study 70 weeks of Daniel:
This sub study takes us through the much misunderstood prophecy of the 70 Weeks of Daniel. I believe much of the confusion results from people already having learned presuppositional futuristic teachings which have given them a misunderstanding of the nature of the “end,” as well as to whom it was spoken to. I have found that newer believers have far less difficulty seeing from the plain verses where the angel is speaking to Daniel “Seventy weeks are determined for your people and for your holy city…” Then later in Dan. 10:14 how the angel was speaking to the things which were going to happen to “Daniel’s people” in “their latter days.” So when Michael stands up in Dan. 12:1 he is speaking of those very same latter days of the Old Covenant Hebrew people and all the things which will happen and be completed “…when the power of the holy people has been completely shattered…” (vs. 7)
I believe this study will provide the most biblical approach and interpretation to the breakup and timing of the 7+42+1 weeks of Daniel. This is sure to provide some good thought provoking things to think on, which I trust will also help answer some things which may have been confusing in the past.
I am quite sure that this full Series 9 Lesson 1 and 2 will prove to be one of the top favorites for many people. It is guaranteed to increase your faith and awe and admiration for our Lord as you see the detailed prophecies –> matched by the detailed and amazing fulfillments.

Listen to the weekly Bible study audio and study along with the PDF (unfortunately, the first 2 parts of this Study Series, and part 14 never recorded):
(Audio recordings: as of March 2020 (start of Covid) at the time of the recording of this Study Series with my most recent group we had transitioned from meeting in person to online Zoom Bible studies. It was unknown at the time that when people on Zoom read the scripture or spoke it was not recorded through our recording device. You may notice this on occasion in some of the audio recordings with a short gap of silence. The audios affected are only Study Series 9 Lesson 1 parts 1-7, and Study Series 13. Please just skip ahead until the study resumes)
