Title: The English, Hebrew, Greek and Latin versions all name this book after Daniel, the prophet whose ministry is recorded in the book. The name Daniel (Hebrew Dani'el) means "God is my judge."
Summary: The book of Daniel predicts the destiny of two opposing powers: The Kingdom of Men and the Kingdom of God, stressing that "the Most High God rules in the kingdom of men" (5:21). Daniel's prophecies generally do not deal with Israel as much as with the nations that control Israel. The book of Daniel contains prophecies that span the time from Daniel's day to the coming Kingdom Age.
