Book of Daniel
|For it is so written in|
Daniel is an Old Testament book about and supposedly by Daniel (an advisor to the King) who foretold the future.
Daniel is not technically a Prophet in the Jewish sense since he talked with angels not God, and since he talked to future generations not the current generation. The last half of Daniel describes the destruction of the world and the coming of the Messiah. For Christians, this carries important events that must pass before Jesus can come to the earth.
 Famous stories from Book of Daniel
- King Nebuchadnezzar throwing Shadrach, Mishach, and Abedniego into the Fiery furnace where they survived by praying to their God (the God of the Jews).
- "The Writing on the Wall", this saying comes directly from the story of king Belshazzar seeing writing appear on the wall that he cannot interpret but which Daniel explains tells of the destruction to come.
