The Book of Daniel is
ranked by the Jews in that division of their Bible called the
Hagiographa (Hebrews Khethubim). It consists of two distinct parts.
The first part, consisting of the first six chapters, is chiefly
historical; and the second part, consisting of the remaining six
chapters, is chiefly prophetical.
The historical part of the book treats of the period of the
Captivity. Daniel is "the historian of the Captivity, the writer who
alone furnishes any series of events for that dark and dismal period
during which the harp of Israel hung on the trees that grew by the
Euphrates. His narrative may be said in general to intervene between
Kings and Chronicles on the one hand and Ezra on the other, or (more
strictly) to fill out the sketch which the author of the Chronicles
gives in a single verse in his last chapter: `And them that had
escaped from the sword carried he [i.e., Nebuchadnezzar] away to
Babylon; where they were servants to him and his sons until the
reign of the kingdom of Persia'" (2 Chronicles 36:20).
The prophetical part consists of three visions and one lengthened
The genuineness of this book has been much disputed, but the
arguments in its favour fully establish its claims.
(1.) We have the testimony of Christ (Matthew 24:15; 25:31; 26:64)
and his apostles (1 Corinthians 6:2; 2 Thessalonians 2:3) for its
authority; and (2) the important testimony of Ezekiel (14:14, 20;
(3.) The character and records of the book are also entirely in
harmony with the times and circumstances in which the author lived.
(4.) The linguistic character of the book is, moreover, just such as
might be expected. Certain portions (Dan. 2:4; 7) are written in the
Chaldee language; and the portions written in Hebrew are in a style
and form having a close affinity with the later books of the Old
Testament, especially with that of Ezra. The writer is familiar both
with the Hebrew and the Chaldee, passing from the one to the other
just as his subject required. This is in strict accordance with the
position of the author and of the people for whom his book was
written. That Daniel is the writer of this book is also testified to
in the book itself (7:1, 28; 8:2; 9:2; 10:1, 2; 12:4, 5).
