In this video we discuss the Danielic Scrolls and how they compare to the Book of Daniel in the Masoretic Text as well as modern Bibles. We also discuss the dating of when Daniel was written, and why we have reasons to doubt the traditional dating of the texts.

Daniel was Hebrew Prophet who lived under Babylonian Captivity during the reign of Nebuchadnezzar, Belshazaar, and Darius. He writes about miracles that took place during that time period and how he was able to translate the dreams of Nebuchadnezzar as well as documenting his visions of the coming 4 Kingdoms after Darius. He is credited for the correct prophecy of the coming of Cyrus & Alexander the Great.

However, as early as the 2nd and 3rd century (common era), and even more in modern times, scholars have noticed that we have huge reasons to doubt that Daniel was written before the time of Alexander the Great. In this video we lay out why we know this.
