The Statue in the Book of Daniel pamphlet ventures into the fascinating dream of King Nebuchadnezzar in Daniel 2 and Daniel's vision in Daniel 7. This bestselling, full-color pamphlet includes an illustration of the statue (based on an authentic Babylonian carving of the era) and explores each of the statue's four parts, as well as the four kingdoms they represent. Maps of ancient civilizations, a time line of events and rulers, and a comparison chart help explain the statue's parts and their meaning.
What does the statue represent in King Nebuchadnezzar's dream in the second chapter of Daniel? What is it saying about earthly empires and heavenly kingdoms? The Statue in the Book of Daniel pamphlet describes the meaning of the Head of Fine Gold, Chest and Arms of Silver, Belly and Thighs of Bronze, and Feet of Iron and Clay. A map of the ancient world provides context for the kingdoms that are represented by the statue segments, and a time line reveals the rise and fall of kingdoms between 600 BC to 100 AD. Daniel's interpretation speaks to the Scriptural truth that rulers and empires come and go, but God's kingdom, ruled by the Son of Man, will be everlasting.
The Statue in the Book of Daniel is an excellent resource for presenting Daniel's prophecy of God's everlasting Kingdom. Daniel's interpretation draws correlations between the elements of the statue:
• The Head of Fine Gold
• The Chest and Arms of Silver
• The Belly and Thighs of Bronze
• The Feet of Iron and Clay
• The rock—not cut out by human hands—which struck and felled the statue.
