Discussion for Daniel 1

  • BSP
    Verse 3 talks about the sons that were of royal descent being taken to Babylon. At 2 Kings 20:16 and 18 he was told that some of his sons would be taken to Babylon. This is one way in which we see that prophecy was fulfilled.

    Question: What is "pulse"?
  • Murien
    In my opinion Daniel and the others have a real good relationship with their God. To deny them selves from the King's meat and to have pulse and water prove that All things are possible with God and all praise and glory belongs to His name. My prayer is that every believer would seek to honor the Lord in everything we do and we would follow the true examples of Daniel and the other.
  • A disciple
    BSP; I appreciate your notes, and how you put simply and straight forward the way we can apply the Word to ourselves. To your point about Daniel's determined consecration to God; considering his circumstances, and how he was so firmly resolved in his faith and his integrity of heart toward God; we get a better idea why God so loved Daniel and counted him as the rarest kind of men among His saints.
  • BSP
    Verse 8: Daniel had already determined before he faced trials and tests that he would not defile himself. Likewise, we need to prepare our hearts and minds before we face trials.
