This bundle of 2 highly animated, power point presentation on Religion – Daniel & Babylon in Biblical History. The total number of slides in the presentations is 41. Each of the slides are editable so you can modify the slides if you need to.
The biblical account of Daniel, the prophet begins as he and many other young men from Judah were taken captive by King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon (Daniel 1:1-4) in approximately 604 BC and sent into exile. This Babylonian Exile lasted for 70 years, as God had foretold through the prophet Jeremiah earlier (Jeremiah 25:11).
Arriving as a teen, Daniel, not only survived but, rose to serve in prominent positions in the governments of several Babylonian and Medo-Persian rulers, including Nebuchadnezzar II, Belshazzar, Darius and Cyrus the Great. Because Daniel possessed wisdom bestowed by God and was conscientious in his work, he not only prospered during the reigns of successive rulers, but King Darius planned to put him in charge of the entire kingdom.
The book of Daniel in the Bible contains 2 of the best-loved stories in the Bible: Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego in the fiery furnace and Daniel in the lions' den. It's also a gold mine of prophecy, ancient history, and lessons about trusting God. The angel Gabriel, who visited Daniel to give him insight and understanding, was the same angel who later appeared to the virgin Mary telling her she would bear the Savior, Jesus.
Daniel prophesied as moved by God through visions and dreams about what was going to happen throughout history, including what would happen to Daniel’s people in the “latter days” (Daniel 10:14) and to the whole world. Those prophecies include: Four World-Ruling Empires, The Kingdom of God, A Little Horn, The 70 Weeks, Abomination of Desolation and The End of Time.
MUCH OF THE BOOK OF DANIEL IS PROPHETIC, HIGHLY SYMBOLIC AND CONTROVERSIAL. THE INTENT OF THIS PRESENTATION IS TO REPORT THE STORY OF DANIEL AS HISTORICAL FACT WHILE LEAVING THE INTERPRETATION OF PROPHESIES TO RELIGIOUS SCHOLARS.

Babylon rose from a Mesopotamian city on the Euphrates River to become a powerful city-state and later the capital city and namesake of one of the greatest empires in history. The city was located on the eastern side of the Fertile Crescent about 55 miles south of modern Baghdad. Babylon’s history intersected the biblical timeline early and often. The influence of Babylonia on Israel and on world history is profound.
In the Bible, Babylon is mentioned from Genesis to Revelation, as it rises from its rebellious beginnings to become a symbol of the Antichrist’s evil world system. When God’s people required discipline, God used the Babylonian Empire to accomplish it, but He limited Judah’s captivity to 70 years, Jeremiah 25:11.
Then, God promised to “punish the king of Babylon and his nation” , Jeremiah 25:12 “for all the wrong they have done in Zion,” (Jeremiah 51:24). Ultimately, all evil will be judged, as symbolized by Babylon’s demise in Revelation 18:21, “The great city of Babylon will be thrown down, never to be found again.”
