Wesley's Notes for Daniel 10:5


10:5 A certain man - Very probably Christ, who appeared to Daniel in royal and priestly robes, and in so great brightness and majesty.


Discussion for Daniel 10:5

  • I don 't think Christ would need help with anything as God.
  • In the notes in V13 you say that Micheal is commonly refered to as Christ...I think you might not have the correct info.

    This was Gabriel or another messenger angel.
  • I dont think this was christ, in v13 it sais "But the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me one and twenty days: but, lo, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me; and I remained there with the kings of Persia" this was probibly a demon trying to stop this angel from getting to Daniel. Was either Gabriel or another messenger angel.
