WHILE POLITICS hasn’t changed much in the last 2,500 years, we’re thankful that today being “thrown to the lions” is just a figure of speech. In Daniel’s day, it was apparently an effective way to dispose of political enemies.

This week, we discuss the famous story of Daniel in the lion’s den, and then we move on to the prophetic section of the book to analyze the four terrifying beasts of Daniel’s vision, various interpretations of what they represent, and why scholars can’t agree on their meaning after more than two thousand years of study and debate.

Update: The 2019 SkyWatchTV Wars of the Gods Tour of Israel has added a special visit to Qumran, where the Dead Sea scrolls were discovered, where Jim Barfield of the Copper Scroll Project will show us some of the sites where some of the most important religious artifacts in history may be buried.
The tour flies from New York City to Tel Aviv Sunday, May 12, 2019, and returns Thursday, May 23. If you want to extend your trip a few days to join us in Jordan, you’d return Monday, May 27, 2019. For more information, log on to LipkinTours.com — but don’t wait!
