Show Notes

In part 2 of this special two-part episode, King Nebuchadnezzar's grandson, Belshazzar, disregards past humblings under God’s hand, hosting a blasphemous feast using sacred Jewish vessels. Amidst revelry, a divine hand writes mysterious words on the palace wall, terrifying everyone. Belshazzar promises riches to anyone who can interpret the message. Daniel is summoned and interprets the writing: Belshazzar’s reign has been judged and found wanting, and his kingdom is to be divided between the Medes and Persians. That very night, the prophecy is fulfilled as Cyrus’s forces breach Babylon’s walls. Belshazzar is killed, marking the empire's end and validating the peril of pride. Daniel remains, respected and influential, under the new ruler, embodying the enduring truth that humility precedes honor.
