In both the Hebrew and Greek canons the book is titled after its main character, Daniel.
The Hebrew Scriptures were probably originally canonized into a two-fold division: By around the second century B. The three-fold division included the same books as the two-fold division b. There are several possible reasons for a three-fold division: In the Hebrew canon Daniel is not included among the prophets 4.
This emphasis may well have been appropriate for the following reasons: Daniel is not in the role of a prophet who is speaking to the nation to repent of their ethical misdeeds b. Although Daniel certainly wrote down prophetic visions, they are a message to the nation to enable them to walk through their history with the confidence that God is working among them even though they are being dominated by the Gentiles.
If historical literature is emphasizing a revelation record of the sovereign work of God in history, then Daniel certainly applies because the prophetic visions are also a record in advance of the sovereign work of God in history as the Gentiles overrun Israel who is in sinbut as Israel is also going to be ultimately delivered.
As in other historical literature, this book would enable Israel to walk more faithfully with God when they saw His inclusive plan for them.
Perhaps the Masoretes did not consider Daniel to be a prophet since he was not appointed or ordained as a prophet in the text in the usual way; rather he was a servant of the government d. Daniel was a part of the major prophets 3. Our English editions follow this division 4.
This is also a logical placement of Daniel becuase of the many prophetic visions in the book III. Late--Second Century soon after B. The date of matches the evidence spoken of in Daniel Most who hold to a late date for Daneil emphasize it as being apocalyptic literature: While most all would agree that there are apocolyptic elementes to Daniel, this does not require that it also be modled after all aspects of apocalyptic literature b.
Some aspects of apocalyptic literature which Daniel is accused of are: The sensational events 3; 5; 6 are necessarily writing conventions like those which were employed by noncanonical literature of the intertestamental period 6. Often there is a hermeneutical presupposition against predictive writing 11 7.
Often there is a non-miraculous presupposition against narratives like in Daniel 3; 5; 6. Manuscripts discovered at Qumran e.
This argues against a date 17 c. Three Greek loan words in Daniel need not argue for a late date since there may well have been Greek writing prior to Plato B. The themes of the prominance of angels, the last judgment, the resurrection of the dead, and the establishment of the final kingdom are not themes that are limited to later apocryphal literature, but have their roots in earlier biblical literature and even Zechariah 19 4.
The fourth empire in Daniel 2 is not that of the Greeks as those who hold to a late date affirm; this is substantiated by the vision in chapter 7 were the second empire is not Media and the third empire is not Perisa, but is Greece which divides into four the Persian empire never divided into four parts.
This is also substantiated in Daniel 9 with the vision of the ram and the he-goat with one horn and then four horns--divided Greece. Daniel the self-proclaimed author of the book living during the sixth century B.
The writer shows an accurate knowledge of sixth-century events: The author refers to himself as Daniel throughout the book cf. To instruct and admonish the people of God in the crisis of faith 26 C.
However, this thesis is untenable in light of early reports of a three-fold division c. See Geisler and Nix, General, p. This critical approach is suggested by La Sor et al as an explanation for the placement of Ezra, Nehemiah, Chronicles, Esther, Song of Solomon, and Ecclesiastes when they write, Essentially, the purpose of the Writings as a whole was to collect those sacred books whose purpose, character, or date excluded them form the collections of law and prophecy Old, p.MAIN COURSE BOOK PEOPLE UNIT-1 CBSE 1 PEOPLE UNIT 1 (SUMMARY) SECTION Introduction In this UNIT you will develop your READING SKILLS .
