Chapter 5

18 November 2018

READ 5:1-4

  • Who is now listed as king of Babylon? Is he really the son of Nebuchadnezzar?

  • What does he do with the vessels from the temple in Jerusalem? What is Belshazzar’s posture toward the One True God?

READ 5:5-16

  • How is Belshazzar’s response to the writing on the wall similar to Nebuchadnezzar’s response to the dreams he had.

  • The queen tells the king to calm down. Why?

    • What do the queen and king say about Daniel?

    • How does this point to Daniel’s value to the various kings?

  • What does the king offer to Daniel in exchange for his interpretation?

READ 5:17-23

  • How does Daniel characterize Nebuchadnezzar?

    • What did God to Nebuchadnezzar that He hasn’t yet done to Belshazzar?

    • Why will God now humble the king?

READ 5:24-30

  • The exact translations of the three words isn’t exact, but how does Daniel interpret them?
