Prophet Daniel (hebr. דָּנִיֵּאל)
The prophet Daniel is one of four Major Prophets in Hebrew Scripture, along with Isaiah, Jeremiah, and Ezekiel. The Book of Daniel is followed by the Prophet Hosea, the first of the Prophets of the Book of the Twelve. Daniel in the Lions' Den is a favorite Bible story for children. In addition, the captivating prophecy, imagery, and symbolism make the Book of Daniel one of the most read of the Old Testament of the Bible.
Jesus Christ, in announcing the Kingdom of God is at hand in Mark 1:15, fulfills the prophecy in Daniel 2:44-45. He calls himself the Son of Man in all four Gospels and the Book of Revelation (1:13 and 14:14), reminding us that he fulfills the destiny of the Messianic figure in Daniel 7:13. The striking prophecy of the Anointed One in Daniel 9:24-27 is accomplished in Jesus the Christ (Matthew 1:16, 16:16) or Messiah (John 1:41, 4:25).
