The Time of the End
(Be sure and check out my blog at www.beliefnet.com, "Is It the End of the World?")
In the Bible’s book of Daniel, a fascinating bit of information is conveyed. Daniel was a Hebrew prophet at the time of the Babylonian exile, in the sixth century B.C. His book is heavily prophetic, and for generations scholars and students have disagreed over key points, such as whom Daniel was writing for in the future.
Among the future events Daniel predicted: the rise of Alexander the Great, a few hundred years in the future, and discussion of the antichrist at the time of the very end of human history.
