Lecture no. 18 from the course: Understanding the Old Testament
Taught by Professor Robert D. Miller II | 25 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Philosophy & Religion Courses
In approaching the prophetic oracles and stories of the book of Daniel, delve into the genre of Apocalyptic literature—revelation which discloses a transcendent reality. Note the appearance in Daniel of the figure of “the Son of Man,” a divine, human-like being enthroned by God. Study the story of Daniel’s exile to Babylon and take account of its message for diaspora Jews.
