The preparation of the prophet

Daniel sermon series

Daniel 1:3-21
Two time references and three focal points tell the story of Daniel’s preparation for service. Time indicators in the text (v3 and v21) place Daniel’s term of service in Babylon between 605 BC and 539 BC. For about 70 years, the whole time Judah was in exile, the Lord had His prophet standing at the king’s right hand. The three focal points which emerge strategically in the text (v8,12,17) tell the story of Daniel’s testing and preparation. The main point of the text is that the Lord prepared Daniel for service in Babylon through trial and testing. For his faithfulness and obedience, tested and confirmed through trial, the Lord gave Daniel intellectual abilities, vocational aptitudes, and the unique spiritual gift of interpreting dreams and visions.
