Text: Daniel 6
Pastor David Riemenschneider delivers this weeks message in the series on the Book of Daniel, “Over Us Over All”.
Daniel had been a citizen in the Babylonian Empire (now Medo-Persia) for over sixty years. When King Darius captured Babylon, he recognized the leadership quality and character of Daniel. He promoted Daniel to be one of the three key administrators overseeing the 120 satraps (governors) in the new empire of Medo-Persia. The other administrators deeply resented Daniel and soon launched a vicious plot to have him murdered by attacking his consistent, God-honoring faith and using it against him.
