The Joy of Discovery – June 22, 2022 – Re-appraising Our Faith Through Daniel

The Joy of Discovery

When we “re-appraise” something, we are asking what is its current value?  Today, when much of the world seems to be losing their faith in God, we who still believe can benefit from a better understanding of who Jesus is.  This may be like when Judah was taken captive by Babylon, when the promises made by God to David seemed to end.  Into this difficulty, Daniel is sent to encourage and guide.  Interestingly, Daniel was also of central importance to the early Church.  He spoke about the kingdom of God, the Son of Man coming on the clouds, and the Abomination of Desolation.  Our Lord would also speak of these prophecies, giving them great importance.  Therefore, we too may be encouraged as was the early Church by Daniel’s words.
