The story of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego is a story of uncompromising, courageous faith in the face of death. About 600 years before Jesus Christ was born, King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon besieged Jerusalem and took captive many of Israel's finest citizens. Among those deported to Babylon were 4 young men from the tribe of Judah. In captivity, the young men were given new names. Daniel was called Belteshazzar, Hananiah was called Shadrach, Mishael was called Meshach, and Azariah was called Abednego.
Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego refused to bow down to a statue of the king because they bowed only to their true God. Yet, even threatened with death, they would not compromise their beliefs. Enraged the king condemned them to a fiery death in a furnace.
God's miraculously intervened by protecting them in the fire as a fourth man appeared in the flames. Who was the 4th man Nebuchadnezzar saw in the flames? Whether he was an angel or a manifestation of Christ, we cannot be certain, but that his appearance was miraculous and supernatural, we can have no doubt.

This is a story about a King and 3 brave men. The king's name is Nebuchadnezzar and the 3 men were known as Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego. They lived in a place called Babylon and the 3 men worked for the king and had important jobs for the province of Babylon.
King Nebuchadnezzar then made an announcement: "People of all languages, when you hear the music, you must bow down and worship the statue because I have said so. Whoever does not obey and worship the statue will immediately be thrown into a fiery furnace." To worship a big pile of gold like the one that King Nebuchadnezzar set up is silly. The gold can't hear, see, or care about anything or anyone.
The next time the music played everyone stopped what they were doing and they bowed down to worship this idol. Everyone that is, except for Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego which made the king really mad. The king threw the men into a fiery furnace to kill them, but God delivered them.
Nebuchadnezzar then came as close as he could to the furnace and shouted in the doorway, “Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego follower of the most-high God, come out! Come here!" So the 3 men walked out of the furnace without any burns, no hairs on their head burned, all their clothes perfectly fine, and no smell of fire on them at all. At that moment, Nebuchadnezzar knew that they worshiped a real God not some fake statue. God had sent an angel to protect them from harm, and even more importantly he realized that they truly believed and trusted in God.
