Judgment, Exile, and Babylon

April 12, 2015 Preacher: Rich Lanning Series: Daniel

Scripture: Daniel 1:1–1:2

Judgment, Exile, and Babylon
Daniel 1:1–2
April 12, 2015


I. The debate concerning the dating of Daniel. Isaiah 41:21–23, 46:9–10; Matthew 24:15

II. Why did God allow judgment and exile to come upon the Jews? Daniel 1:1; Leviticus 26:27–34; Jeremiah 25:4–11

III. Instructions for living in Babylon. Jeremiah 29:4–7

IV. Hope for the future. Jeremiah 29:10–14

Questions for reflection:

  • What led to the exile of the Jews?
  • What do the events connected to the judgment of Jerusalem and the exile teach us about God?
  • What principles should guide us as Christians living in an increasingly secular society?
