Developing the Lesson

10 Give the detail events in a form of storytelling about Daniels faithful friends (Daniel 6).
mins Daniel is able to retain his high position, even though the Babylonian Empire has just
fallen to pieces. He continues to serve as one of Darius top three menpresidents who supervise
the one hundred twenty satraps that help govern the kingdom (a "satrap" is basically a state
But the other two presidents and the satraps all get jealous of Daniel. He's been doing so
good that Darius is planning to make him his number one president, ruling over everyone else
except for the king. The satraps can't find anything to discredit Daniel with in his own life, since
he's a pretty clean-living and incorruptible guy. So they devise a plot.
The satraps go to Darius and start to convince him to sign a document ordering everyone
to pray to him and worship himand only himfor thirty days, or else they'll be thrown into a den
full of lions.
Daniel pays no attention to the new rule and continues to pray to God at his window
facing Jerusalem. The satraps go to Darius and tell him what Daniel is doing. But the king really
likes Daniel and makes every effort he can to save him. Still, the satraps tell him that he can't
change his own laws. So Darius orders Daniel thrown into the lion's denthough, before it
happens, Darius tells Daniel that he hopes God can save him. After Daniel is put inside, the den is
sealed over with a giant boulder.
After heading home, Darius refuses to eat. He fasts and is unable to sleep. The next day,
Darius heads down to the den to see if God saved Daniel. Daniel is fine and answers the king when
Darius calls to him. Dan explains that God's angel showed up and made sure the lions' mouths
stayed shut. Darius allows him to be taken out of the den. But the king punishes the people who
conspired against Danielnot only the satraps and presidents, but their wives and children are
chucked into the lions' den. The lions start to devour them and crunch their bones before they even
hit the floor.
Darius told the city that they need to respect and fear Daniel's God. He pays tribute to God
for saving Daniel and says that God's kingdom will outlast all others.
