Chapter 1

Preface

Two people are better off than one, for they can help each other succeed. If one person falls, the other can reach out and help. But someone who falls alone is in real trouble…”

-Ecc 4:9-12

The Free Bible eBook Series is a simple and definitely fallible (and possibly wrong at times) interpretation of the different books of the Bible. When deciding to share this series it was because of one vision and idea, that average Christians (denomination irrelevant) can share their thoughts about the Bible and like Ecclesiastes states, “they can help each other succeed.” The content of these eBooks should not be taken at face value but compared with your own understanding of the scriptures discussed.

One of the great common day ironies of Christianity is that although our faith may be the most important thing of our lives, it is also the thing we are most hesitant to share. It makes me sad when my few Christian friends and I spend time together with no mention of Christ. It makes me cringe to think that strangers who are Christians will talk about everything under the sun but will hesitate to share the joys of their faith.

This series is crafted with untrained hands but with a hearth full of Christ’s love. It may be informative, it may be revealing, and with God’s Grace, it may be enlightening. The goal though is for it to be a conversation piece, a common ground Christians can relate to and share, and a way to ensure no one falls alone.

 

Chapter 2

Introduction

Daniel is such a fascinating book. I think if there was one man in the bible that I would want to be best friends with, it would be Daniel. He is such a shining example to us and how to live a life of faith. When you really think about this, it’s actually pretty intriguing and almost doesn’t make sense that a man from the Old Testament could be such a good example for us gentiles in the distant future. I mean the children of God live in drastically different ways between the Old and New Testament. Rather than relying on the law, we now rely on the Holy Spirit. Sometimes the difference seems like a matter of violence, as the Old Testament is full of stories of the people of God at bloody war with those who don’t believe in their God. In the New Testament we are called to love all and to bring peace to the world.

Daniel lives like a man of the New Testament. He is patient, kind, his spiritual life is not hidden by any means, but is definitely personal. You don’t find Daniel walking the streets condemning sinners and casting judgement. In fact he hardly brings up his faith unless someone asks directly. But then he shares his faith so sincerely and with such love, he rocks the world.

You can find nearly everything in Daniel. Rock steady faith, love, miracles, doubt, fear, treachery, loyalty, effective witnessing, and mind-bending prophecy. You can spend a long, long time studying the book of Daniel and still learn new things.

I hope from reading this guide, you will learn a few new things from Daniel. I pray that God opens your heart (and your mind considering all the prophecy you are about to read!) and every day, make you more like Daniel.

Chapter 3

Daniel Chapter 1: That Makes Sense

In every matter of wisdom and understanding about which the king questioned them, he found them ten times better than all the magicians and enchanters in his whole kingdom.”

-Daniel 1:20

Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah, (the last three may be better known as Meshach, Shadrach, and Abednego) were certainly up against a lot while captive in Babylon, especially when chosen to be tested of their worthiness to serve King Nebuchadnezzar. But in spite of the challenges, in spite of being in a land opposed to their God and unfamiliar with their ways, the four were steadfast in their beliefs. In fact, they were so rock-steady, they even made their beliefs seem practical and worthy to Babylonians, even those serving closely to King N! But how?
