The Statue in the Book of Daniel pamphlet describes meaning of the Head of Fine Gold; Chest and Arms of Silver; Belly and Thighs of Bronze; and Feet of Iron and Clay. A map of the ancient world provides context for the kingdoms that are represented by the statue segments, and a timeline reveals the rise and fall of kingdoms between 600 BC to AD 100.

This pamphlet is an excellent resource for presenting Daniel’s prophecy of God’s everlasting Kingdom.

Here is an example from the Scripture-rich pamphlet regarding the interpretation of King Nebuchadnezzar’s dream:
Head of the Statue (Daniel 2)
The head of the statue, made from fine gold, represented the kingdom of Babylonia, which the Lord gave King Nebuchadnezzar to rule.
The gold symbolized the superior power of Babylonia
And an example of Daniel’s Vision:
Vision of Beasts – Lion (Daniel 7)
More than 50 years after King Nebuchadnezzar’s dream, Daniel had a vision about four great beasts (like a lion with eagle’s wings, a bear, a leopard, and a terrifying powerful beast).
The four beasts are four kingdoms. Nebuchadnezzar of the Babylonian kingdom is compared to a lion in Jeremiah 4:7; 50:44, and to an eagle in Ezekiel 17:3, 11, 12.
A time-line from 600 BC to AD 100 reveals the events related to the ruling kingdoms that clarify the interpretations. Events include:
The Babylonian Kingdoms and their rulers during biblical times
The fall of Babylonia to Darius the Mede, who was succeeded by Cyrus the Great.
Alexander the Great’s conquest of Persia and its fulfillment of prophecy
The rise of Rome and the Caesars.
Also included are maps, outlining the geographical areas of the relevant kingdoms.
