    Haley; meat doesn't always necessarily refer to flesh: in the old English it was often used for food in general. For the Hebrews to eat food and drink wine from the Gentiles; which was not sanctified by the priest to be kosher; was prohibited because of the sign of the law and the covenant to be separated and holy unto the LORD. The dietary laws were for teaching the coming new things in Christ.
  • Haley
    In verse 5, it says that king Nebuchadnezzar gave the Israelites his meat to eat and his wine to drink. I understand why the meat was a big deal but I do not understand why the wine was. If someone could explain that to me I would greatly appreciate it.

    Edna; the story of Daniel the Prophet is amazing and wonderful! Did you realize, that Daniel and Ezekiel were both carried away with the captivity? When we read how great things God gave to them to do and to write; (while under subjection to the heathen!); it should give us all strength in understanding our own times, and how we can serve the Lord powerfully despite humiliating life circumstances.

    God inspired Holy men of God to wrote the Bible. I believe almost all the men that wrote it was a Jew. So the Bible is written by Jewish people. Does that mean God chosen Jews to be his people. I say yes. Through out the Bible, Genesis through Malachi, the Gentiles were not part of that group, they were not chosen of God. But, after the Jews stone Stephen in Acts, all things changed.

    Irene123 just go to Ezekiel 13. It speaks of preachers who dream up their own divine salvation and cover Gods outreached arms and hide His way of salvation. If you are meant to see the truth you'll see it. Seek the truth and don't believe the lie to fly because there is only one salvation and that's Gods way.
