A Study in Daniel: Belshazzar

Daniel 5
What could have been Belshazzar’s reasons for taking and using the Jewish temple vessels out of his grandfather’s treasury? Who could understand the writing on the wall, vs. 17? Who could not? Verse 22 says that Belshazzar knew “all this.” What did Belshazzar know in vs. 18-21?

According to verse 30, was Belshazzar given time to repent after God’s judgment was given? Vs. 22 “And thou his son, O Belshazzar, hast not humbled thine heart.”

Daniel 7 Name and describe the four beasts in Daniel’s vision (vs. 1-8, vs. 17)? Describe the Ancient of Days in verses 9-14. Who came to the Ancient of Days from the clouds of heaven in verse 13?

Daniel, still in his vision, asks for an explanation. What answer does He receive in 17 and 18?

What will eventually happen to the fourth beast in verses 25-27? How did Daniel respond to the vision? Vs. 14 “His dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away.”

What was Daniel’s response to the vision?

Vs. 8 “And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power.”
