Reply To: Analyze one of the supplementary Bible passages in light of the course content. Do you see evidence of the Hebraic map? Did anything about the passage surprise you? Was there any part of the passage that stuck out to you in particular?
I chose to write on Daniel as well – he is a great example of what a leader should be. The history of the Jews did not seem lost at all on Daniel and his Jewish friends but seemed part of what appeared to sustain them. The history of a faithful God was evidence of a future faithful God. Chronology was central to Daniel chapter 2 as the dream that Daniel interpreted not only contained a present but a chronological future account that is sustaining Jews today. Daniel understood that God was not abandoning his children or giving up His relationship with them even in a foreign land. God was still pursuing His people, and their holiness still mattered.
