Defending the Book of Daniel

The Book of Daniel is probably one of the most interesting books in the Old Testament because of its length (it’s short) and because it contains several remarkable, if not miraculous stories that defy expectations and experience.

Daniel is also marked by controversy because it presents itself in two different languages in its original form and uses what some scholars have argued are anachronistic terms.

The most controversial aspect is the fact that it predicts the coming of the Jewish messiah and gives us a key Christological term that the gospel writers stress.

What I want to share in this post is a series of short videos produced by the apologetics ministry Tektonics that, I think, respond to key objections with strong arguments.
