Dānî’ēl (דָּנִיֵּאל) — Daniel

The Book of Daniel is an apocalypse combining a prophecy of history with an eschatology – a portrayal of end times. This is done through the story of Daniel, a noble Jew exiled in Babylon. The theme is that just as God saved Daniel and his friends from their enemies, so God would save all of Israel in their present oppression.

This timelime shows when Daniel lived, juxtaposing his life with that of the prophet Ezekiel, and major foreign rulers in that era. Historians note that the book of Daniel was written long after the time period in which this story takes places. As always, the timeline shows events according to the intent of the author.

One excellent, older English commentary on this book is Studies in Daniel by Harold Louis Ginsberg, 1948, Jewish Theological Seminary, available to read online at at Studies in Daniel, Harold Louis Ginsberg, hathitrust.org. An excellent modern translation and commentary for the lay person is Daniel, by Robert Alter, available either in “Strong As Death Is Love: The Song of Songs, Ruth, Esther, Jonah, and Daniel, A Translation with Commentary”,” or “The Hebrew Bible: A Translation with Commentary.”
