Into the Lions’ Den (Daniel 6:1-28)

Now an old man, Daniel is still standing faithfully against the accusations of the Babylonian rulers. Meanwhile, King Darius has to stand faithfully by his own law, and throw Daniel into the lions’ den. In this scene we see a glimmer of the true Daniel who was to come–one who would be falsely accused, sent to his death, but brought back from the tomb by the power of God–Jesus Christ, the one who was raised to life for all who trust in his name.
