Book of Daniel
The Book of Daniel stands at the head of a series of writings in which the deepest thoughts of the Jewish people found expression after the close of the prophetic era. Daniel is composed partly in the vernacular Aramaic (Chaldee) and partly in the sacred Hebrew.
The book may be divided into three parts. The first chapter forms an introduction. The next six chapters, 2 - 7, give a general view of the progressive history of the powers of the world, and of the principles of the divine government as seen in the events of the life of Daniel. The remainder of the book, chapters 8 - 12, traces in more detail the fortunes of the people of God.
In the first seven chapters Daniel is spoken of historically; in the last five he appears personally as the writer. The cause of the difference of person is commonly supposed to lie in the nature of the case. It is, however, more probable that the peculiarity arose from the manner in which the book assumed its final shape.
The Book of Daniel
exercised great influence upon the Christian Church. The New Testament incidentally acknowledges each of the characteristic elements of the book, its miracles and predictions, and its doctrine of angels.
